Environmental Scanning

At The Scan Truck, we stand ready to deploy a range of sophisticated technologies to facilitate precise environment capture tailored to your project’s demands. Leveraging Drone Photogrammetry, LiDAR Scanners, and Handheld Photogrammetry, we ensure a meticulous capture of environments down to the finest detail.

Explore how each method can serve your needs:

Drone Photogrammetry: Drone-Powered Aerial Photogrammetry: Employing state-of-the-art drones equipped with high-resolution cameras, we capture aerial imagery that forms the basis for creating precise 3D models of landscapes and environments, facilitating accurate mapping and analysis.

LiDAR Scanners: Detailed Topography: Capture intricate data of ground surfaces to create precise topographical maps.

Handheld Photogrammetry: Close-up Details: Handy for capturing details of objects and surfaces, a pivotal tool in crafting detailed 3D models and gathering color information to create detailed textures


Our team had the exhilarating opportunity to collaborate on the “Challengers” project, bringing our state-of-the-art 3D scanning expertise to the fore. Scanning Zendaya, an icon of both style and talent, allowed us to showcase our dedication to precision and quality. Every curve, every detail was captured with accuracy, ensuring the visual fidelity that both the production team and the fans would love. We’re incredibly proud of our work, standing side by side with top-tier talent, and helping bring such projects to life with our technological touch.

Fast X

It was so exhilarating scanning for Fast 10. We’re immensely proud to have played role in bringing the magic of Fast & Furious 10 to life for audiences worldwide!


This was a a fun project to work on! Rosalia has become one of the biggest artists in the world and Coca-Cola wanted to celebrate this by giving her a co-created Coca-Cola flavor. We scanned her in several looks but the motorcycle outfit was the most fun.


Light Detection And Ranging is an essential component to capturing large volumes of spaces; from movie sets to historical architecture, there is practically no limit to the spaces that can be scanned. LiDAR uses laser light to measure variable distances, creating highly precise three-dimensional models.

Our team of specially-trained capture technicians are equipped with the tools and knowledge to effectively and efficiently capture even the hardiest of places.
