3D digitizers and 3D scanners are now able to produce accurate 3D images and models so quickly that anyone can scan a person (or even a cat or dog) in seconds, and then output it (while that person waits just a few minutes) as an engraving into glass, plastic, metal, 3D stereo pictures (lenticlar frames), or even deep inside a glass Crystal object with truly amazing quality.

Sub-Surface Laser Engraving or SSLE is an exciting, profitable new industry that is growing with businesses and entrepreneurs all over the world! A high resolution 3D image can actually be etched/engraved with a laser deep inside the center of a glass crystal object without any scratching on the surface. The results are exciting - and can only be appreciated when you see your 3D portrait scan in crystal!


GHOST 3D provides SSLE solutions and consultation, in addition to offering a variety of Optical 3D scanners and 3D camera systems that are suitable for SSLE and 3DSP applications.

GHOST 3D System OICS-CYCS1 (SSLE) and
GHOST 3D System OICS-CYCS2 (3DSP):
A truly dedicated solution for SSLE and 3DSP is the 3D Cyclops.

An easy and ready-to-use solution that anyone can operate for capturing 3D images of human and 'live' subjects, the 3D Cyclops is a great addition to GHOST 3D's extensive G3D Systems Optical & Laser Solutions - specifically for 3D image capture and output as 3D portrait models, 3D Stereo Portraits printing (3DSP), relief engravings, sub-surface laser engravings (SSLE), etc.
