What Will You Learn?

The 3D Scanning Masterclass is the only course you'll ever need. The course will be updated annually as new technology emerges and new techniques are discovered meaning you will rarely need to buy additional coursework. The course is designed for the beginner with no prior 3d scanning experience while providing cutting-edge hardware and software techniques that even the most experienced 3d scanning profession will find useful. A wide variety of hardware and software will be covered from low cost iPhones to expensive enterprise lidar systems and drones. Techniques and technology including photogrammetry, lidar, drone ops, aerial lidar, satelite data and radiance fields will be discussed with step-by-step lessons teaching you about the technology and how they work together.

By the time you complete the course with optional quizes and exercises members will be eligible for a certificate and verification you've completed the most advanced 3d scanning masterclass in the world.
