3D Scanning

The UP-3D Centre's 3D portfolio includes a wide range of scanning services in terms of size and application. Our machine park features light and compact entry-level hobby scanners to industrial-grade scanners, so we can meet all market needs.

With our 3D scanners on-site, we can digitally scan technical parts from small screws to motorcycles or cars. The resulting scans can then be converted into simple 3D geometry or surface and CAD models. Because the images are high-resolution and colourful, they can also capture the surfaces and actual colours of objects, giving lifelike textures to the resulting models. It is also possible to scan the entire human body or its individual limbs for medical or artistic projects.

The resulting digital files can be used in a wide range of engineering, medical and artistic applications, including the following examples:

VR Campus – accessible from UPMS & UPFEIT

During the virtual campus project, the UP-3D Centre engineers modelled the University of Pécs Campus and made different university facilities accessible. The entire Medical School and the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology campus can be visited in VR with Oculus Rift and demonstration classes are also available for visitors. The Aula of UPMS can be accessed in browsers, from desktops and in VR environments, and all exhibitions are regularly updated and can be viewed online.


Nowadays, our own 3D-printed images have become trendy gifts. Couples, parents and grandparents are gifting each other with their own colourful 3D printed miniature models, called MiniMe. Featuring both handheld scanners that can perfectly digitise the human body and a PolyJet printer that prints in rainbow colours, the UP-3D Centre also allows customers to immortalise themselves for eternity in the form of small or large 3D printed sculptures.

How long does a scan take?

Depending on the complexity of the job, it takes 1 - 3 hours. It depends on the size, shape and surface of the object to be scanned.

How accurate are the results?

In the case of Artec handheld scanners, the precise fixability of the models is determined by their surface quality. For easily detectable matt surfaces, 3D models can be generated with an accuracy of 0.1 - 0.5 mm. Sense hand scanners have an accuracy of 1-5 mm.

Can accuracy be improved for difficult-to-scan, shiny, glossy surfaces?

Yes, as long as the surface is not delicate and can be washed with water, accuracy of up to 0.1 mm can be achieved by using a special spray.

How long does post-processing take?

Depending on the model, it can take 2 - 8 hours. This is determined by the size, complexity, geometry and surface properties of the model.
