GIANTS TO JEWELS 3d scanning & printing

When Art Horse approached us with the challenge of turning this hand-made three foot wooden sculpture into a three inch article of jewelry, the challenge was ripe for the taking. We took our optical laser-based 3D Scanner and expertise in 3d modeling and rapid-prototyping to scale down the data and produce 3D print-ready files. The 3D printed prototype in ABS plastic featured on the left was also done by us. Art Horse then took our data to Shapeways and reproduced it in metal (switch to slideshow mode to see more images).


Master craftsmen from Tool Couture produce some of the world's finest champagne sabers. Each of these individually crafted by hand exhibit beautiful and delicate curves. It was a pleasure to be asked to aid them in reverse engineer these hand-made masterpieces.

Through the aid of optical laser-based 3D scanning and our expertise in 3D modeling we delivered data ready for their upcoming prototyping needs. Learn more about Tool Couture here.

VOICE ACTING By Gary Schwartz

One of the many great talents Digital Double has had the pleasure to work with is comedian and actor Gary Schwartz. He is most known for being the voice behind a number of well known video game characters, including TF2's Demoman. Have a listen:


Phil Burkhardt contacted us three weeks prior to needing half of his right hand amputated due to a rare cancer. Despite this unfortunate turn of events, Phil decided to make the best of it by having us 3D scan his hand and using the 3D data to generate a mechanical prosthetic later on.

The hand, however, is a very difficult part of the body to scan so we needed to make a mold and scan a cast instead. These pictures show the excellent results we got. We'll be posting more images here as this project continues to unfold.

2D ANIMATION By the very best!

Nothing can replace the artistry of traditional, hand-drawn animation, which is why Digital Double has partnered with acclaimed animator, Tony White for all of our client's 2D animation needs. Tony, a British Academy Award-winning director/animator has been responsible for over 200 TV commercials, two TV Specials, several short films and the acclaimed title sequence for “The Pink Panther Strikes Again” movie. Tony is also a best-selling author of several books on animation and likes to balance his time between production and teaching. His current short film production, “SIR STAN”, will take traditional 2D-animation to entirely new areas of expression - and hopefully provide apprenticeship opportunities for talented young students of animation, if the film can attract much-needed sponsorship."


Digital Double helped Seattle Repertory Theatre with their set production by scanning in a sculpted miniature and providing sliced 3D geometry to be used by a CNC machine.

KINECT TV & Motion Capture

Digital Double teamed up with Microsoft Game Studios to help produce animations and special effects for Kinect properties, including a 2-way TV experience for Sesame Street and National Geographic.

PANASONIC Augmented Reality 3D Prototype

Fortune-500 companies come to Digital Double for assistance in producing state of the art prototypes. Panasonic came to us for assistance producing an innovative 3D tabletop augmented-reality display. The application included real-time parallax technology using special eye-wear and Kinect detection.

We generated a number of art pieces that allowed them to simulate an Augmented 3D GPS navigational paradigm. This allowed users to virtually enter popular stores in downtown France and shop for brand-name retail products.

SUMO SUMMIT App Development

Digital Double creates Sumo Summit App! While we usually find ourselves busy developing games for other studios, Sumo Summit was squeezed in between projects. It's our first IP developed all in-house. This free iOS app explores a new visual art style and game design approach meant to relax the player, not stress them. Give it a try for free on the iOS app store while it's still in Alpha; it works on all iOS devices. Digital Double produced everything from scratch, including the code, engine, art and music.

SHARK WEEK App of the Week

When Smashing Ideas came to us asking for assistance in producing a top of the line app for Discovery's Shark Week program, we knew we had a challenge ahead of us. Not only did we have to create digital doubles of dozens of sharks, but we also had to create anatomical diagrams for each, featuring muscle and organ layers.

The study of anatomy is one of the things we do for fun, so the challenge was ripe for the taking. Over the course of two months, we assembled a team of six artists and generated dozens of shark replicas. Soon after its release, Apple featured it as their App of the Week and it was praised by reviewers as a graphical accomplishment.


Wizards of the Coast approached Digital Double to help them explore 3D character development for use within their cinematic art production pipelines. We got to work closely with Wizard's concept artist to develop a 3D version of Elspeth, entirely from scratch.

While we prefer to leverage internal assets developed form our Digital Double library, it's not unusual for clients to want works that they can claim entirely as their own, including moral rights to the work; for unlimited future use. In such cases, we'll develop everything from scratch and assign all rights to the customer, including source files and documentation on how to operate them. This was the case for Wizards.

Our raw 3D scan data has come a long way here at Digital Double. When Olympic hopeful Norris Frederick approached us interested in getting his digital double made, we took this as an opportunity to test out new scanning and fusing pipelines that render very clean raw scan topology and texture data that you could take into most 3D applications and use as a great starting point for your characters or digital sculptures.

Norris spent an hour with us at the studio and these images show the result.

3D SCANNING Laser / Optical

Digital Double is one of the only quality providers of optical/laser-based 3D scanning services in the Seattle area.

Recently we've applied new methods for fusing and creating watertight raw 3D scan data. Our data is incredibly smooth and realistic. We can also create animateable (edge looped) versions of the models ready for your production pipeline. We can generate the model, uv's and even convert the highly detailed point-cloud data into texture data for real-time optimization.


In 2010, Digital Double produced a work titled “Dancing With Light” in collaboration with Melissa Farrar (dancer & choreographer). The work was featured in the 2010 and 2011 Digital Art Festivals and broke new ground in the field of the performing arts.

In this piece we explored a blend of dance, motion capture and special effects to create an analog augmented reality experience for live audiences that required no glasses or displays.

We did all the motion capture in our studio in Redmond.


In 2008 Digital Double became the first company in the US to offer markerless motion capture services. The system is composed of fourteen StageView Fire-100 cameras enabling the capture of a performer in real-time. Frame rate captured ranges between 60-120 fps with real-time targeting onto an avatar of your choice. Our Redmond mocap studio is convenient to Seattle, Bellevue and Kirkland, within close proximity to numerous video game studios including Microsoft, Bungie, Valve, Nintendo, and others. Our system is perfectly suited for animations, video game prototypes, films and more. For rates visit our FAQ section.

ARMATURE NINE 3D Printed Product

Armature Nine is our toy factory flagship product produced entirely through 3D printing. Digital Double broke new ground when it became the first company to produce a 3D printed retail product sold en masse around the world (over 30 countries and counting).

425 Magazine described it by saying: “Digital Double, a Redmond company, has developed the drawing mannequin of the future.” Comic book artist Fletcher Horton had this to say:
"...this tool has truly been a life saver on most of my projects!"

Modeling by Royal Winchester - Storyboards by Monte Michaelis


Classic Foundry approached Digital Double seeking assistance with a life size statue to be manufactured with a CNC machine. After we 3D scanned the artist's base clay sculpture, we took it into ZBrush and carefully integrated additional details based on the art direction provided by the artist. This mesh was then exported into a format they could read with their CNC machine, and voila, a large wooden statue emerged.

PHOTOS FOR ARTISTS Create Derivative Works!

Over the last ten years, Digital Double has produced an impressive library of photographs and devoted countless hours to sifting, sorting and tagging thousands of images.

Internally we have amassed close to 20,000 photographs and released close to 5,000 of these on our online storefront, and continue to release more as time permits. Unlike most royalty-free services, these images are meant for studios and artists to use as points of departure for their creations.
