3D Scanning for Archaeology & Anthropology Studies with SMARTTECH3D

What can a 3D scanner do for you?

Universities, libraries, and museums all over the world are seeing value by bringing a 3D scanner into their archival process for digitization and future preservation.

3D Scanners Can:

  • Digitally capture artifacts without physical contact 
  • Allow you to recreate and digitally share historical objects for observation 
  • Allow teams and researchers to share digital recreations of artifacts anywhere in the world 


Why 3D Scanning?

3D scanning can offer a huge range of applications in academia including many of the examples below. Digitization, inspection, preservation, these are just some of the use cases that have shown to be successful. What’s most exciting are the applications that have yet to be discovered!

How Does It Work?

Our 3D scanners utilize structured light measurement to capture object position and color. Structured light scanning is quickly becoming the most popular form of 3D scanning, due to its incredible resolution, accuracy, and true color capture.


Digital archiving is crucial for Universities or institutions that endeavor to make available artifacts that might otherwise not be handled or displayed. Use scan files for archives, websites, and other multimedia applications.
