In addition to our 3D Printing Services, Roger George Rentals also provides 3D Scanning services.
Bring in a part and have it scanned, make modifications to the original, then have a duplicate printed.

What kind of things can you scan?
Also, very reflective, transparent or translucent objects are difficult to capture. Our 3D scanner uses lasers to read the surface of models. Reflective and transparent surfaces are unreadable and produce bad scans. The most ideal parts for scanning have a uniform matte finish (preferably a light, neutral color) that doesn’t reflect or refract light. Spraying the part with primer or matte paint can improve scanning results.
Can you 3D scan people?
How accurate is your scanner? How much detail can it pick up?
Is my part a candidate for 3D scanning?
If you are interested in replacing a broken part, we’ve found it’s easier, faster and less expensive to have the part designed—as opposed to scanned—by one of our technicians. In most cases, having a technician measure and render a part in the computer yields higher quality finishes than by scanning.
