Unique 3D Scanning technique

Using photogrammetry on small scale has never been more accessible. OpenScan utilizes this technique to create stunning 3D scans.

No App needed

We strongly believe in data autonomy and give users the choice to process their data locally or through our in-house OpenScan Cloud photogrammetry engine.

Strong Community

As a community-driven project, OpenScan is active on many plattforms, where users actively participate in its development

Modularity

Every part of OpenScan is well documented and highly modular, so that users can modify and build their own devices based on the existing solutions.

Open Source

Without the open source movement, this project would not be possible. For this reason, all our firmware and hardware plansare published and ready to be modified.

Our powerful photogrammetry solution

OpenScan Cloud

Thanks to great community support through Patreon, we are able to offer a free processing pipeline for your 3D models. With over ten million processed photos, we are on our way to bringing 3D scanning to the masses.

3D Scanning for the masses

Scan the world

When we started our journey in 2017, we could have never imagined that this project would grow to a global scale. Today, our scanners can be found across continents, in various makerspaces, industries, enhancing research, and connecting communities in ways we only dreamed of.
