I've been trying to get hold a large scanner to be able to get glass scans in a single image. But have found that the large scanners start around £5k and go upwards in price.


I have been in touch with a local scanning company and asked them if they are able to deal with the large sizes.

If they come back as unable to is there anyone on here who knows of a scanning company or person that would be able to do the job?


My intention is (if possible) to get all the glasses from my 7 JPM's scanned, to be able to create UHD/4k layouts.


I am also making arrangements to get a Vogue cabinet 3D scanned for use in Amber eventually.


Also, does anyone have a spare Indiana Jones top glass (with grail decals) as mine is a bit flakey in places?

I have access to a decent A3 scanner. Even then a single glass can take 4 passes then stitching in photoshop.

I know a fair few people in the print trade so can ask about but they are likely to be local to me unfortunately.
