3D scan for the web
Let’s imagine bringing a real object into the digital world, and making them fit together perfectly. Not only. Let’s imagine interacting with the digital version as if it were a real object. This is 3D digitization, useful in many cases, for many companies.
3D scanning takes place via a scanner – a peripheral capable of acquiring a physical surface and reconstructing it in the form of a cloud of points – or through photogrammetry, which is based on a series of photographs taken of the object to be detected. The physical model and its digital version are fully matched.
The 3D model can be an end in itself, that is, it does not require further processing, or the modeling is the first of a series of steps to reach the final report.
What should I do if I need a 3D scan?
When a customer doesn’t have a three-dimensional file, but wants to transfer an object into the digital world, which solution is the best? We help companies to choose, based on objectives, the physical characteristics of the objects and specific needs.
Kjosul e la digitalizzazione 3D
The digitization performed by Kjosul is characterized by the high definition of the acquired three-dimensional model. The images produced with the 3D scanner or by photogrammetry are then cleaned, aligned and joined together to create a complete 3D virtual object. This is a step that requires precision and attention.
We are able to intervene in many areas of application:
- Historical sciences (archeology, paleontology, paleoanthropology etc.)
- Web design
- Videogame applications
- Multimedia applications
- Advertising graphics
- Industrial engineering
- Civil engineering
- Industrial design
- Mechanical parts

Switching from real to digital model
3D models in interactive contexts require speed, tight processing times and a huge amount of data to manage. Kjosul’s solution is to make the models more usable on the web by uploading a new version reconstructed through the retopology process that reflects all the characteristics of the original model.
Retopology is a real process of global optimization of the model, necessary in all those cases in which the available model is not suitable for the purposes of the project.
What are the characteristics of Kjosul’s 3D models for the web?
The 3D scanner used by Kjosul is “Artec Eva. Non-contact, accurate, fast, handy, and easy to use. Ideal for Body Scan and for professional acquisition in point clouds. The supplied software recognizes the geometry of the object and automatically aligns the detected 3D images, without using any type of marker or referencing system.
The 3D models we make stand out because:
- They are particularly detailed while still being able to load very quickly
- The textures we use take the visualization of the products we make to an exciting new level of realism
- They are already optimized for use in all digital fields including VR and AR
- They remain the property of our customers, as a precious resource to be able to face new digital perspectives that will be proposed

What characterizes Kjosul’s 3D digitization for the web?
Generating the three-dimensional model is the first step in our production pipeline. The second step is texture mapping, a process that adds information on the external appearance: color, relief or shading to be applied to the model, for example. Information stored in the form of two-dimensional images called textures.
Texture mapping can be divided into two phases: the preparation of the model and the creation of textures, indispensable in all fields of computer graphics, think of the architectural field or in the video game sector where they simulate effects such as relief and shading. . The textures are reworked on the model surface through a shader, a program that determines the external appearance of the object taking into account the lighting conditions and information from the textures. In whatever sector you work, texturing has a considerable impact on the final result.
