"Digitization made easy"

More and more cultural heritage institutions have a demand for accurate 3D digitization. CultArm3D offers repeatable high quality at the push of a button while ensuring object safety at all times.

Operating in a class of its own, it combines intelligent view planning with color-faithful capture of arbitrary objects with challenging surface materials. High-resolution and web-ready results are delivered in standardized 3D file formats (OBJ, GLB).

CultArm3D is a mobile turn-key solution combining a modular design with unmatched ease-of-use.
