About 3dMD

In contrast to most 3D scanning technologies that were originally designed to scan inanimate objects for reverse engineering application, 3dMD developed its motion 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 progressive sequence of high-precision 3D surface images of a subject’s face, head, torso, limb, thorax, full body, etc. With 3dMD, research institutions, corporate innovation centers, and teaching hospitals can now accurately image even the most restless children!


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