Unveiling the Beauty of a Sabertooth Tiger Skull: Journey into Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry

Welcome to the latest update from SIAD Studio! We are thrilled to share with you the incredible opportunity we recently had to scan and recreate a breathtaking Sabertooth Tiger Skull. Through the combined power of laser scanning and photogrammetry, our team at SIAD Studio utilised advanced software like Capturing Reality to transform this historical object into a mesmerising 3D model.


Marvels of Photogrammetry:

Photogrammetry, an innovative process at the forefront of digital reconstruction, enables us to capture precise measurements and intricate details by analysing multiple overlapping photographs. It's a technique that merges art and science, allowing us to recreate objects with unparalleled accuracy and realism. Through the meticulous extraction of key data points, a highly detailed 3D representation emerges, taking us on a visual journey through time.

Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry Connection:

Our team combined the power of laser scanning with photogrammetry techniques to bring the Sabertooth Tiger Skull to life. With the help of laser scanning technology, we acquired accurate scan data of the skull's surface. We then accompanied this information with hundreds of carefully captured photographs, merging the precision of laser scanning with the photogrammetry.

Magic Unveiled: Witness the 3D Model:

Our collaboration between laser scanning and photogrammetry has resulted in an impressive 3D model of a Sabertooth Tiger Skull.


Every minute detail, from the sharp teeth to the intricacies of the bone structure, has been recreated, giving us a glimpse into the amazing world of these ancient predators.


The Sabertooth Tiger Skull stands as a testament to the incredible capabilities of laser scanning and photogrammetry. Through the convergence of accurate scan data and precisely analysed photographs, we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible in digital reconstruction.
