FAQs

What is V3D Technology?

V3D stands for visual 3D, and is a feature of the SMA Versascan flatbed scanner series. This is a new technology that produces results that look 3D. Different lighting scenarios is the base for the process, where one area of the object is being lit by several different lighting angles, and the scanner captures those different instances. The software within the scanner then combines the separate images into one master image. As a result, paintings and other artwork that are scanned using the V3D technology offers almost perfect reproduction of nearly any surface.
