ABOUT US

Since its inception ACME Digital Content has specialized in vehicle 3D Data Capture, 3D Modeling, Data Prep and related services for print, broadcast & Real-time applications. Our mission is to provide the superb vehicle assets, tailored to our clients needs.

EXPERTISE

Plain and simple, our expertise is automotive. From the earliest CG renders and 360 spins in the 90’s, to the first real-time vehicle web apps in 2006, to the award-winning Genesis.com WebGL site in 2019, ACME artists and assets were there. That experience matters and is evident in the assets ACME delivers to its clients. It cannot be cultivated in a few months or replicated in an automated software.

SERVICES

ACME provides a range of Services, all of which are geared towards the output of superb CG vehicle assets. Whether the reference is the physical vehicle, OEM CAD, or CAD-converted triangulated data, ACME has the experience and proprietary tools to produce the asset or Cross-Platform asset for any application.

VEHICLE DATA PREP

New technologies like WebGL, AR and VR are rapidly expanding the need for real-time vehicle assets. For 16 years ACME has specialized in the creation of real-time vehicle assets and has developed proprietary tools for their expedited creation from OEM CAD data. The results of this expertise and these innovations can be seen in sites the award-winning Genesis.com site.

Vehicle Sourcing

3D DIGITIZING/MODELING

ACME's proprietary digitizing software enables efficient 3D data capture to 0.012" accuracy. The process utilizes 3M Fineline tape, made specifically for use on all automotive surfaces; exteriors, interiors, engine bays, etc. Using this process ACME has captured more than 500 vehicles.

VEHICLE SCANNING

Historics motor sports introduces significant potential risk for the value and provenance of these vintage vehicles. Accurate 3D Documentation insures that, should the unthinkable occur, they can be returned to their original form.
