Welcome to the 3D Scanning Frontier

The 3D Program is a small group of technologists working within the Smithsonian Institution Digitization Program Office. We focus on developing solutions to further the Smithsonian's mission of "the increase and diffusion of knowledge" through the use of three-dimensional capture technology, analysis tools, and our distribution platform.

This site is one of many ways to access the Smithsonian's 3D content which covers an array of topics such as sports, portraiture, fashion, and outer space. You're welcome to freely explore or check out one of our curated collections. While you’re here, don't forget to stop by the Labs page to play with some of our latest experiments!
