3D printed mini figures at Little BIG City, Berlin

We fuse technology and art

3Dify specialise in 3D body and object scanning, 3D modelling, 3D printing, and Augmented Reality. We create assets for artists, digital installations that amaze and delight, and help turn events into unforgettable experiences. We have developed hardware and software to create custom full body 3D scanning and time freeze capture systems.

We enjoy experimenting, innovating, co-creating, and working with immersive and emerging technologies. If you would like to discuss a 3D scanning commission, collaboration, find out how our technology can help you as an artist, or hire one of our systems for an event then drop us an email. We're based in Brighton, UK.


Since 3Dify launched with the first 3D scanning and 3D printing art installation in the UK, we've worked with internationally acclaimed artists, high profile companies, and featured at events including London Comic Con, FT Innovate, the Brighton Digital Festival, the Tech4Good Awards, and Boxpark. Here are some of our favourites:

London Comic Con 3D scanning

Commissioned by experiential marketing agency Experience12, we provided the technology for the Vue RealD stand where we captured over 300 costumed attendees and created 3D models for them to view online during the event.

Little BIG City Berlin

We're very pleased to have worked with Merlin Entertainments on the spectacular Little BIG City, a journey through the history of Berlin in miniature, currently on display in the Berlin TV tower. 3Dify scanned people in authentic period costumes and digitally enhanced the models, which were 3D printed, painted, and added to multi-media dioramas.

The Horse Problem

3Dify are incredibly honoured to have been placed in charge of 3D scanning for Argentinian artist Claudia Fontes' Venice Biennale sculpture. The challenge was to scan two people at a quality high enough for them to then be fabricated at life-size, and scan the artist's maquette of a horse so it could be re-created as a 5 metre tall sculpture. We provided 3D photogrammetry scanning and collaborated with 3D modelling artist Lola Lipsum, who digitally remodelled and re-posed the scans, to realise the artist's amazing vision. Heralded by mainstream media as one of the 'must sees' and 'most photographed' exhibits of the 2017 Venice Biennale, 'The Horse Problem' is on show until November 26th 2017.

Hawkeye 3D cricketer

Hawkeye, leaders in the field of sports line call technology, gave 3Dify the challenge of scanning a cricketer in full kit using our high resolution photogrammetry system, and with the help of supreme 3D artist Lola Lipsum, we provided an optimised and retextured model to work in their 3D visualistion for sports television.

360ยบ Time Freeze Rig

For the Brighton Costume Games and the Brighton Digital Festival wrap party we provided the ultimate photobooth 'Revolve'. Our custom 40 camera rig froze revellers in action and printed a unique QR code linking to their online video.

Projection mapping the Attenborough Centre

3Dify in association with digital creative agency Developing Dreams, video and projection designer Nina Dunn, the University of Sussex, and an incredible crew, created a projection mapping tribute to mark the anniversary of Lord Richard Attenborough's death. The video was mapped to the new Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, an exciting and contemporary world class arts facility.

Break the Mould

1 month, 4 venues, 400+ scans and 3D prints, 6,000,000+ files.

At the Brighton Digital Festival, 3Dify™ provided the technology for the first 3D scanning and 3D printing installation in the UK, Break the Mould. A collaboration with innovative Brighton digital agency Developing Dreams and renowned Italian artist Emilia Telese that received widespread mainstream press attention. People were invited to step inside a giant sculpture, get scanned, digitised, and 3D printed as a mini sculpture. Thanks to The Arts Council, 3D printer makers extrodinaire Ultimaker, Brighton's Wired Sussex, Same Sky, and talented director and filmmaker Frit Sarita Tam from Think Again Productions who created a brilliant mini-documentary.

3Dify
in the media

Since we 3D scanned the superb BBC tech correspondents Bill Thompson and Gareth Mitchell for BBC Click at the launch of the Break the Mould installation, 3Dify™ have been featured in the Guardian - named as one of Brighton's leading tech startups, on ITV, BBC, in local media, and have written articles for magazines on 3D scanning technology.
