We have recently closed an investment in Fuel 3D for the Parkwalk UK tech Fund V and the Parkwalk Opportunities EIS Fund.

Fuel 3D offers an affordable handheld 3D scanning system that delivers extremely high quality 3D shape and color capture for a range of creative applications. The Fuel3D handheld scanner is a point-and-shoot 3D scanning system that captures extremely high resolution mesh and color information of objects. Fuel3D is the world’s first 3D scanner to combine pre-calibrated stereo cameras with photometric imaging to capture and process files in seconds.

Developed at the University of Oxford, Fuel3D has been developed by an expert team of hardware and software engineers and scientists. Originally developed for the medical imaging sector, the technology has been adapted for the broader 3D market, with the goal of bringing the benefits of point-and-shoot 3D imaging to consumers and professionals alike.

Originally developed by Professor Ron Daniel, Lecturer in Engineering Science at Oxford University, Fuel3D is today led by Stuart Mead, CEO, a veteran of several successful global technology ventures.
