Turn Your CNC Into A 3D Scanner

The CarveWright Scanning Probe opens up the world of 3D scanning to anyone. Now you can reproduce original pieces, repair antique furniture, even copy trim and moldings with ease. Almost any material can be scanned, even soft materials, such as clay or wax. Just plug the probe into the CNC, set the desired scan area, and watch it go to work.

Scanning Probe Action

From the Real World, to the Digital World

Scanning Sled


Select any relief object to scan and secure it to a scanning sled. The sled is a simply constructed carrier board for holding the object while it is scanned in the CarveWright Machine. (Instructions for building this sled are included in the manual.)

Scan Object


Load the sled into the machine just as you would a board for carving, crank the head down, and plug in the scanning probe. The menu on the machine will default to the scan menu, so you can choose your scan settings and begin the scanning process.

Edit Scan


Once the scan is finished, the scan data is contained on the memory card. Plug the memory card into the card reader on your computer and from Designer, download the scans. This download scan software has tools for doing a quick clean up of the scans. If you have Pattern Sculptor, the scans will automatically download into this software, where more advanced editing features are available. Learn More


When the editing is finished in Pattern Editor, the scan is then saved into your pattern library where it becomes just like any other pattern for carving. You can add it to your designs, change the depth, height, scale, and then carve it out.

Probe tips

Scanning probe tips help to protect more delicate scanning surfaces from scratching and gouging. We recommended using a protective tip when scanning surfaces such as plaster or antiques.
