About Duplicate 3D

What is Duplicate 3D?

The name Duplicate 3D comes from the idea that everything can ultimately be duplicated in 3D with 3D scanning.

Duplicate 3D was originated from a growing demand for editing sculptures, art pieses and objects on the computer.

Helping people out with my knowledge as a 3D designer and 3D Scan specialist is the solution.


Just like a chisel for a sculptor. A computer is a tool for a 3D design.

Developing ideas on the computer gives an enormous creative freedom. Despite this, many are faced with a challenge to start using these new techniques. Duplicate 3D guides you here.

Ik vind het belangrijk dat uw creativiteit door komt tot een geslaagd eindresultaat. Daarom is het mogelijk om gezamenlijk met mij uw digitale replica in 3D te bewerken.

About Me

My name is Sander Mettes. 3D scan specialist, 3D designer and founder of Duplicate 3D.

Everything that has to do with technology is fascinating to me. I photography, am fond of film, music and film music and actually everything in between.

Oh, Did I mention that I find 3D designing super awesome?

For more than 10 years I have been designing 3D models with passion. I started making visual effects for film and commercials.

After that I had my own 3D printer at my disposal. I started to focus on making 3D models suitable for 3D printing. Many of those models I have shared with the world on Thingiverse..

3D scanning has gradually been added. The combination of something to be 3D scanned, edited and than be 3D printed with a 3D printer is a process that is inspiring and offers endless possibilities.
