Fuel3D is a developer of advanced 3D scanning systems and solutions with operations in the UK (Oxfordshire) and the USA (California and North Carolina). Originally developed for the medical imaging sector, Fuel3D technology has been adapted for the broader 3D market, with the aim of bringing the benefits of point-and-shoot 3D imaging to consumers, businesses and other professionals.
Fuel3D's SCANIFY captures extremely high resolution mesh and colour information of objects and is the world's first 3D scanner to combine pre-calibrated stereo cameras with photometric imaging to capture and process files in seconds. And, most importantly of all, it costs less than one tenth of the cost of it's nearest industry competitor.
The Fuel3D scanner works in much the same way as a normal digital camera is literally point and shoot! But, it should not be confused with the consumer 3D cameras available today. The Fuel3D camera is significantly more advanced.
Since generating worldwide attention through a successful crowd funding campaign, which was ranked in the top 0.5% of Kickstarter campaigns in 2013 by revenue, the company has gone on to raise millions in private investment and has signed up prominent retail and distribution partners across the world.
