3D digitization solution, bringing everything into virtual reality


3D laser scanning technology has been widely used in today’s life. In addition, the 3D digitization of objects and works has greatly helped users in storing, sharing and increasing the experience for viewers. So what is 3D digitization? Let’s find out through the following article.

1. What is 3D digitization?

3D digitization is known as a technology using professional 3D scanners. Use infrared to scan the entire real space. Then process that data and digitize them into 3D space. Everything such as colors and objects are reproduced with 100% accuracy when put in virtual reality.

This technology creates spaces virtual reality with 3D views and short, continuous and detailed movements. This allows users to actively interact directly with the unlimited space. Not stopping there, you can completely move to any point in virtual reality 3D space  by moving the mouse up and down. This technology will give you a real feeling, as if you are really standing there. You can experience the real space with just any mobile device such as a computer, phone,… or virtual reality glasses.

2. Outstanding advantages

The outstanding advantages of 3D digitization will be the basis for making reasonable use choices for users’ actual needs.

2.1 Sharp images, compact and easy to share

Thanks to 3D digitization, the image of the real space is fully covered from top to bottom, from outside to inside and from left to right. Plus, the images are incredibly sharp, accurate to every corner, and easy to share.

2.2 Bring a real experience to viewers

Through the fact that the real space has been digitized in 3D, viewers will have a realistic experience when they can go to any point in the space they want, the presence of each object in that space. Therefore, your product/project will bring a unique highlight and create a competitive advantage over your competitors.

2.3 Safe, Apply Now

The indisputable advantage of 3D scanning technology for construction is the use of telemetry for objects to be measured in hard-to-reach locations. The collected data helps to reproduce the environment or object in virtual space in detail without us having to go to direct measurement.

Moreover, the data is digitized, easily converted into formats suitable for use. For example, perspective, build 3D models of the current state, create 2D, 3D blueprints…

2.4 Fast, accurate

3D laser scanning technology allows to capture the current situation quickly, taking only 3-5 minutes, compared to conventional methods. In addition, the actual environment or object is scanned and simulated in detail, accurately in virtual space, from shape to size, even color. The digitization of the collected data is extremely fast with high reliability.

Let’s refer to an illustration of the application of 3D digitization in the factory below:

3. Current trend of 3D digitization

3.1 What objects can be 3D digitized?

With technology and the modern 3D scanning method, there seems to be no limit to model categories, sizes, and genres.

Single object

Most objects are easily digitized into 3D models. Except for details with too high reflective such as glass cage, mirror, liquid…

Large object

The large objects about the size of a room, a statue 2-4m high, a relief wall over 3m long, a large panoramic space… All can be done but time will take a while. last longer.

For example, the 3D model of Tu Duc Tomb – Hue below:

3.2 Application solutions for many fields

With the 3D digitization solution, in a very short period of time, the product will be completely rescanned. These data can then be easily processed with standard design software and used in a wide variety of applications and fields. Typically: Healthcare, Education, Restaurants, Hotels, Real Estate, Commerce, Tourism,…

  • Medical: A complete and realistic simulation of any space, medical examination and treatment equipment. In addition, the application of 3D digitization to 3D printing technology contributes greatly to the process of surgery and grafting of the patient’s body parts.
  • Education: The perfect simulation for all school facilities and amenities. At the same time, it supports a large part of teaching and learning, when integrating the digital model, makes the lesson more vivid and the learners easily visualize the content the teacher wants to convey.
Digitalizing 3D Educational Applications
  • Commercial: Commercial products from cars, motorcycles, home appliances, electronics, consumer goods,… are easily numbered. 3D modeling and simulation in virtual reality. Customers are shopping in a fresh and modern environment. At the same time, showing professionalism and bringing competitive advantages to businesses.

  • Travel: 3D/360 Intelligent Interactive Travel Platform based on the world’s advanced  3D laser scanning technology for data collection, spatial reconstruction space with accurate size, true color quickly.
  • Restaurant, hotel: The image is fully covered from left to right, from above down and from the outside to the inside in detail of each object, nook and cranny. When you touch and start moving the points in the image, you are really lost in that space. 

4. Implementation method

Basically, digitization technology depends on 3D copying technology. There are two types of foundational techniques that can do this job:

  • Scan 3D: uses light/laser projectors… and captures a reflected light beam to recreate the shape of an object. Often precision mechanical 3D scanning technologies do not capture the color (texture).
  • 3D photography: This is the main method because it has many advantages. The most outstanding point is with large-scale objects that do not require too high accuracy. In addition, it only takes a camera and specialized software to do it

We, VR PLUS, are using 3D Imaging to acquire geometry data.

Through 3D design software, the data in the 3D scanning process can be edited, edited, and even completely changed the shape of 3D objects according to the customer’s wishes.
