Create interactive 3D models of objects

ScannerBox is a workflow that enables you to generate interactive 3D models of objects in your collection or contributed by visitors.

What can visitors do with 3D models?

The 3D models can be shared online to enable interactive experiences of museum objects. Visitors can also turn their personal objects, or things they made during their visit, into 3D models that they can keep and share.

How do you implement ScannerBox?

ScannerBox is a workflow that lists hardware and common skills that are necessary for producing 3D models. It spells out the process in simple terms, and introduces methods for effectively sharing the 3D models.

Why use ScannerBox?

The workflow enables museums – and visitors – to digitise their objects in a far more detailed and useful way than a simple photograph. The outputs can be seen, shared, and interacted with on any platform.

Case Studies

Once I realised that we pretty much already had all the skills and equipment, I was amazed! We had our first model online the same day and now the whole team wants to get involved.

That’s wonderful! We can let visitors keep something from their experience and share it, even if they can’t keep the real artefact they made.

I immediately posted the link to the 3D model on my Twitter. The model pops up straight in the post. My dad said we can 3D print a copy later too!

How to use?

Let ScannerBox help you choose a camera and get it set up.

Photograph the object from as many angles as possible – ScannerBox will show you how.

Let ScannerBox find the right software for you and show you ways to use the 3D models.
