What is Plinth?

Plinth is an end to end digital service for the Fine Arts that constructs high-end 3D assets based on photographic documentation provided by clients. It produces full 3D volumetric digital representations of artefacts, sculptures, paintings, installations and objects.

Why Plinth? What are the advantages?

As a collector you might already be viewing works from your collection, online or a commercial art gallery building virtual viewing rooms. Is there consistency in the quality of your artwork representation? Is there a good perspectival view? Would you like to pivot around the artwork?

In a rapidly developing digital world where online engagement is essential, the best digital representation is key. To enable the latest augmented and virtual reality technologies, the first step is to create 3D contents. Plinth creates volumetric 3D digital replica of your art pieces which can be viewed on a variety of platforms including websites, apps, AR, and VR. In essence, it reproduces reality.

3D digital assets created by Plinth, are super high resolution (16K) and compatible with future technology. Not only, to be viewed on current 2D (phones, tablets, computer screens) and 3D (virtual reality headsets, augmented reality glasses) displays, the 3D assets run on software that is compatible with future products such as Apple Glass. Plinth is the future for the best digital representation of your artworks.

What's the difference between Plinth's 3D constructions and the virtual gallery tours I see, frequently online?

Most virtual gallery tours use a 360-degree photography technique presented in a flat linear plane, whereas Plinth provides an additional dimension which provides image-depth therefore enabling AR and VR compatibility. Also, Plinth enables viewing of artworks, piece by piece.

With Plinth your art pieces are captured in true 3D which can be easily incorporated into websites, AR, and VR.

Is any artwork suitable for the service?

Most artworks are suitable for the service, including sculptures, paintings with texture, and art pieces with elaborate frames. For pieces that are completely flat such as photographs, prints, and illustrations, we suggest that you contact us for alternative solutions.

How does Plinth work?

Three simple steps:

Step 1
Take photographs of the art piece following our guideline/tutorial.

Step 2
Upload your pictures to our secured site.

Step 3
Download the digital file of your 3D art piece from your secured account within 72 hours.

So, all I need is to provide photos. How should the photos be taken?

Capturing the images is simple and can be done by anyone with basic photography skills. We will provide comprehensive guidelines and tutorials, and, offer one to one client support.

What can I use 3D files for?

There are numerous uses including but not limited to:

  • Embedded in website
  • Dedicated App
  • Embedded in Microsoft Office Documents
  • Augmented Reality using phones or tablets
  • Augmented Reality using AR glasses
  • Virtual Reality and beyond


We provide consultancy on how to seamlessly implement the 3D digital files into your current systems/websites and incorporate them into future products.

How much does it cost?

Contact us for a trial.

How long does it take?

The usual turnaround time is 72 hours. Rush service is also available.

My product is not art, can I still use your service?
