Varner Studios has owned and operated 3d scanners for more than a decade to sometimes facilitate our clients with their sculpting needs. We have Cyberware and Minolta Vivid laser scanners which work well for digitally recording 3d sculptures where exact measurements are not critical. Laser scans require quite a bit of post processing surface clean up which is time consuming.
This has led us to purchase a new Steinbichler Comet 5 white light scanner which has an accuracy to 5 microns. The Steinbichler captures detail perfectly and can be used for capturing geometric measurements in Auto and Aerospace industries where accuracy is absolutely critical.
The purchase of the Steinbichler Comet 5 has widened the scope of Varner Studios beyond sculpture and into more industries.
