Turn your machine
into a 3D scanner

The CarveWright Scanning Probe opens up the world of 3D scanning to anyone. Now you can reproduce original pieces, repair antique furniture, even copy trim and moldings with ease. Almost any material can be scanned, even soft materials, such as clay or wax. Just plug the probe into the CarveWright, set the desired scan area, and watch the CarveWright go to work.

From the Real World, to the Digital World

SELECT YOUR OBJECT
sledit

Select any relief object to scan and secure it to a scanning sled. The sled is a simply constructed carrier board for holding the object while it is scanned in the CarveWright Machine. (Instructions for building this sled are included in the manual.)

SCAN IT
machine_scanning

Load the sled into the machine just as you would a board for carving, crank the head down, and plug in the scanning probe.  The menu on the machine will default to the scan menu, so you can choose your scan settings and begin the scanning process. 

EDIT YOUR SCAN
PatternEditor_rooster

Once the scan is finished, the scan data is contained on the memory card.  Plug the memory card into the card reader on your computer and from Project Designer, download the scans.  The scans will open up in Pattern Editor, the software packaged with the scanning probe.  This software has tools for cleaning up the scan.  Learn More

If you have Pattern Sculptor, the scans will automatically download into this software, where more advanced editing features are available. Learn More

CARVE IT

When the editing is finished in Pattern Editor, the scan is then saved into your pattern library where it becomes just like any other pattern for carving.  You can add it to your designs, change the depth, height, scale, and then carve it out.
