Tessa Essers graduated from the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology in September 2016. During her graduation, she developed for the 3D Fine Art Reproduction project an integrated system of the 3D fine art scanner and the gloss scanner to capture simultaneously colour, surface relief and gloss variations.  

Currently, Tessa works as technical support 3D printing in the applied labs where she is responsible for the 3D printing facilities of the Digital Fabrication Lab. Next to that she collaborates with several research projects, for example in the 3D Fine Art Reproduction project were she helps to further develop the scanning method to capture the material appearances of oil paintings.
