3D scan of a 2 Euro coin

The TetraVision team digitized a 2 Euro coin.
The scan is categorized under small objects scanning and is very detailed.


  • Clamping of the coin in a fixture with reference points on the fixture
  • Spraying of the coin with water based anti-reflex spray
  • Digitizing of the coin

Used technology

  • GOM Atos III triple scanner with a 60MV
  • Automated tilt and swivel unit in combination with a lift for the scanner

Post processing

We only needed to close very few holes and then of course the ones where the needles of the fixture touched the coin.
