S-CAN 3D ltd (formerly S-CAN and DSN Classics Ltd) was founded in 1993 by two Ex-Lotus designers as a specialist retail and trade parts service for the Mini & Morris Minor market.
In 2008 we purchased our first CNC mill which allowed us to design and manufacture an in-house range of billet aluminium products for Mini's. This range became hugely popular and has fuelled the growth of the company and the range of services which we now offer.
By 2012 the in-house requirement for 3D scanning for inspection and reverse-engineering was becoming strong but the entry costs were prohibitive. With nobody local able to fulfil our requirements we started S-CAN as a separate business with its own team and premises. S-CAN has enjoyed much success and has grown to become one of the top 3D scanning service providers in the country, being trusted by car manufacturers, tier 1 suppliers, foundries, airlines, historical preservation trusts as well as many private individuals.
With S-CAN came the S-FIX brand when we discovered the available Portable CMM accessories on the market weren't suitable for our requirements. Since then we have produced an ever-growing range of precision 3D Scanning and Portable CMM accessories. We believe the range provides a real breakthrough in offering application specific, quality and affordable components.
Over the following years S-CAN and DSN Classics continually invested to their in-house capabilities and in 2016 the company merged back together so we can offer the complete pathway from reverse-engineering a part through to manufacture and inspection.
In 2019 we ceased selling all standard parts for Minis and Morris Minors. This allows complete focus on the Engineering sides of the business. The company was also renamed S-CAN 3D Ltd.
As well as our service work S-CAN 3D Ltd resells and supports Felix 3D Printers, Polymaker Filaments, EviXscan 3D Scanners and Geomagic Software.
