Objective

Design and build a scan to 3-D printing solution

With 3d printing becoming more and more accessible to the general public, Entrescan approached Revelry with an idea to scan images and 3d print them on-demand. While 3D printers have become more affordable, not many people have one at home. Entrescan wanted to build a software that would allow consumers to 3d scan images with their phone or scanner, and then submit them to be printed and shipped.

The Revelry team got involved early on, and built the core technology that allows someone to take a 3d scan, check it for completeness, and then finish incomplete scans so they can be easily and affordably printed. Revelry’s Startup Studio also worked alongside the founding team to create branding, logos, and design elements in addition to the MVP of the software. Entrescan has quickly scaled both the company, and it’s engineering efforts and is now widely accepted as the Shutterfly of 3d scans.

The initial build of the Entrescan software took 3 months to complete, but with a successful launch and continued growth of the business, Revelry remains heavily involved in the technical needs.

Challenge

Build and launch MVP in 3 months.

  • Displaying and manipulating 3D models in the browser without requiring any special plugins
  • Integrating with an external 3D rendering and processing service required for printing
  • Creating an interface that makes 3D scanning and printing easy for someone who has never done 3D printing before

I’m 100 percent satisfied with their project management, their ability to deliver assignments on time, and remain responsive throughout the deployment process. Feedback from end-users has remained overwhelmingly positive, too. Revelry continues to add value to our product offering.
