Jiggs Love Named One of LA Weekly’s 2023 Top 10 Los Angeles Entrepreneurs to Know About

Founder and CEO of The Scan Truck, Jiggs Love, was just named one of LA Weekly’s Top 10 Los Angeles Entrepreneurs to Know About Going in 2023. The Scan Truck team is proud of what Jiggs’ keen vision has brought to the company — making 3D scanning easier and more accessible while building our state-of-the-art 3D scanning rig and mobilizing it for major projects.

The key to The Scan Truck’s success can be attributed to the team Jiggs brought together. They are a group of pioneering experts who work closely together to bring fun, energy and that spark of ingenuity into every engagement.

Scan Truck Expands & Upgrades
With the launch of our second scan trailer on the East Coast, businesses can utilize highly advanced technology and cutting-edge services on both coasts.

We also upgraded the original rig with brand new modern photogrammetry equipment and a cross-polarized strobe system.  Additionally, we acquired a Creaform Metra Scan that is capable of capturing objects at a high resolution suitable for reverse engineering, including glass and highly reflective materials!

Helping to Save Lives
Jiggs and his team also recently created a revolutionary robotic scanning solution for the EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) that can save lives all over the world. The EOD is an organization responsible for safely identifying, extracting, and disposing of unexploded ordnance left behind from conflicts in various countries around the globe.

To ensure the safety of communities in these regions, Jiggs and his team have designed an automated robotic scanning solution to capture and catalog explosive devices. This data is then used to accurately identify unexploded ordnance so that it can be safely extracted from affected areas. The work done by Jiggs and his team makes a huge difference in ensuring the safety of people living in war-torn areas. 

How Jiggs Love Helps the Community Through the Virtually Conscious Program
The Scan Truck also has an impressive Virtually Conscious Program that donates services to projects with a focus on making the world a better place. Through this program, they are currently donating their previous rig’s DSLR Nikon cameras to educational programs around the world so more students will have access to quality tools that would otherwise be out of reach.

This program was started by Jiggs himself who has big aspirations for what it can become – he hopes one day it will grow into a 501c3 organization with even greater potential for positive change!

It is no surprise to us that Jiggs was named one of LA Weekly’s Top 10 Los Angeles Entrepreneurs Going Into 2023; he truly cares about his business, employees and community, and has worked hard to succeed in today’s competitive market. To keep up with Jiggs and see what his talented The Scan Truck crew are up to next, contact us today.

Contact The Scan Truck today to learn more about the Metrascan and how it can benefit your business!

Virtually Conscious Camera Donations

At The Scan Truck, we understand the critical role that technology can play in making a positive impact on the world. That’s why we recently upgraded our truck with new cameras, and as a result are now donating our previous Nikon cameras to educational programs around the globe. Our aim is to provide students with access to tools that would otherwise be out of reach, and we believe that this will help them to learn, grow, and create positive change.

We’re passionate about using the latest technology to support people, animals, and the planet; our Virtually Conscious program is just one example of this. Our mission is to take this program to the next level in order to allow us to make an even bigger impact in the world !

Coldplay Higher Power

Director of Coldplay’s Higher Power music video Dave Meyers breaks down the concept of the video by elaborating that it “is a metaphor for how, right now, we all feel alienated, far removed from our world, almost like we’re on an alien planet” in reference to how the COVID-19 virus has affected everyday life for everybody. No matter what your nationality is, what gender you identify as, what your sexuality is, this pandemic has affected everybody on Earth in some sort of negative manner. However, it has also created a sense of unity and mutuality amongst all of us as we come together in this difficult time to offer one another faith and hope. Chris Martin, lead vocalist of Coldplay, explains, “The song is about trying to find the astronaut in all of us, the person that can do amazing things.”

It was a challenge to 3D scan the alien creatures in their intricate costumes, but we are really happy with the result! Huge shoutout to Mathematic and Freenjoy for making this incredible vision come to life.
