About Us

In contrast to most 3D scanning technologies that were originally designed to scan inanimate objects for reverse engineering application, 3dMD developed its 3D capture technology from the onset to incorporate many different camera viewpoints and achieve ultra-fast capture speeds required to capture human subjects. 3dMD’s unique approach results in a high-precision 3D surface image of a subject’s face, head, torso, limb, thorax, full body, etc. with every click. With 3dMD, hospitals and research institutions can now accurately image even the most restless children non-invasively!


To continue to drive research and clinical advancements by providing the 3dMD customer community with 3D and next-generation temporal-3D (4D) technologies that will ensure the creation of an image database with integrity throughout the project; a very efficient subject workflow for any high throughput environment; a reliable system that will continue to perform over longer periods of time.

Proven Customer Record 

With 4,000 3D cameras globally in leading teaching hospitals; corporate and educational research institutes; and government agencies worldwide, 3dMD is committed to supporting the world’s most forward-thinking clinical and research teams, who continue to push innovations in science and medicine, with our high-precision 3D and temporal-3D (4D) surface acquisition systems , as well as sophisticated 3D analysis and 4D tracking software.
