About headus

headus supplies a comprehensive range of 3D scanning products and services to the Entertainment, Industrial Design and Health Care industries in Australia and around the world.

From our headquarters in Perth, Western Australia, we develop 3D focused software that has been used to produce visual effects for movies such as "Titanic", "Pitch Black" and "Avatar". Using our head and body 3D scanners based at Fox Studios, Sydney, we've scanned actors and props for movies such as "Superman Returns", "X-Men Origins Wolverine" and "The Hobbit".

headus was formed back in 1994 after the development and success of CySurf, a tool used to fit NURBS patches to 3D face and head scans. The scanning bureau was opened in 1995 to promote further development of the software. Since then we have acquired multiple 3D scanners, developed CyDir, CySlice and UVLayout, and became the exclusive distributor for Cyberware 3D Color scanners in Australia and New Zealand. In January 2000 we opened our second office, located at Fox Studios in Sydney.

Jill Smith - Managing Director
Jill manages the day to day operations of the scanning bureau. She also drives much of the software development and gets to test the results. Jill is also co-owner of a Perth based machining company. Before founding headus, Jill exhibited widely and is represented in several Australian Fine Art collections.

Phil Dench - Research and Development
Phil is responsible for the development and support of all of the headus software products. He also keeps the two headus office networks in order, and lends a hand when big 3D scanning jobs come through the door.
