3D PRINTED PUPPETS - From clay, to zbrush to plastic

Zambini Brothers (creators and performers of splendiferous puppets, big and small) set off to put on a colorful salmon-themed parade for Surrey's "Party for the Planet" Earth Day festival. We took their salmon head clay sculpture, 3D scanned it and produced dozens of 3D printed replicas using our 3D printer manufacturing facility. Click here to learn more about Zambini Brothers.

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 had our file produced in metal.

PRE-PRODUCTION - Video Game Pitches

Digital Double is often involved in early pitch meetings for various video game and new media projects. Microsoft's Sunset Overdrive was a fun one. I mean let's face it, who doesn't want to spend hours drawing zombies sprawling through futuristic cityscapes? To the left are just some of the panels we created.

A9 RIG, the world’s finest customizable and fully posable art manikin


A customer contacted us three weeks prior to needing half of his right hand amputated due to a rare cancer. Despite this unfortunate turn of events, he 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.

Given how difficult it is to scan the human hand we first made a mold and scanned a cast instead. These pictures show the excellent results we got. See larger images here. Click here to learn more about our 3D scanning services.

WALLYKAZAM WORD HUNT - 3D Character Animation & Sprite Rendering

Working with Smashing Ideas is always a lot of fun because you never know what spells and potions they're going to have us conjure next. Getting to work with this unique property by Nickelodeon featuring the cast from Wallykazam was incredible fun. We did a lot of animation and rendering for the project.


Digital Double has years of experience producing state of the art digital doubles. Since 2004 we’ve been developing an extensive 3D library including people, vehicles and a number of organic and man-made objects. These animatable reproductions are built for pre-rendered, real-time and AR (Augmented Reality) applications.

Access to this exclusive library provides a point of departure for your projects making it possible to achieve great results in the shortest amount of time.

USER INTERFACE - Icon and Background Design

Often companies come to Digital Double as a solution for their user interace design needs. We've produced detailed paradigm design with animated UX (User Experience) storyboards, fleshed out entire app designs along with delivering working prototypes and often are asked to create the final icon and button graphics. We specialize in raster and vector graphics and have even devoted significant time delivering 3D animated UI designs for 3D displays (See the work we did for Panasonic below).

VEHICLES - Modeling & 3D Scanning

Digital Double has leveraged its 3D scanning and retopology capabilities for years to gradually build a library of highly detailed digital doubles of vehicles. Models include exteriors, interiors and in some cases, actual engines. You can see some videos by visiting our YouTube channel here

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. 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 requested our assistance producing a top of the line app for Discovery's Shark Week program, we knew we had a fun challenge ahead of us. We created digital doubles of dozens of sharks including anatomical diagrams for each, featuring muscle and organ layers. 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 - From cards to avatars

Wizards of the Coast approached us to aid in exploring 3D character development as part of their cinematic art pipelines. We got to work closely with Wizard's concept artist to develop the first 3D version of Elspeth, entirely from scratch.

Our raw 3D scan data has come a long way here at Digital Double. When Olympic hopeful Norris Frederick asked us to create a digital double for him, we took this as an opportunity to test out new scanning and fusing pipelines that render very clean raw scan topology and texture data ready to use in most real-time 3D applications.

Norris spent an hour with us at the studio and these images show the result. Click here to learn more about our 3D scanning services.

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.Click here to learn more about our 3D scanning services.

DANCING WITH LIGHT - Performing Arts

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 performing arts field.

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.

3D PRINTING - Customized Services

With over 40,000 3D printed parts made to date, Digital Double has quickly become the leading 3D printing service provider in the Seattle area.

With eleven FDM 3D printers we can create shapes using ABS and PLA plastic both of which are very strong and durable. Printer resolution can range between 15-400 microns per layer. To put that in perspective, 15 microns is less than half the thickness of a strand of hair. Prints can take anywhere between 8-48 hours or even longer to complete + shipping. Clients should expect a 4-14 day turn-around depending on current client workload and project complexity and scope. Visit our 3D printing page for more info.

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.
