VW bus scanned with Artec Eva 3D model

This hippie bus was scanned with Artec Eva, and then the bottom parts that could not be accessed with the scanner were modeled in third-party software.

Tower Well Valve 3D model

An early 1900’s tower well valve scanned on-site with an Artec Eva, connected to a portable battery and a tablet.

Hydrant 3D model

This is a 3D model of a working hydrant on a street in Palo Alto, CA. To scan it, we used an Artec Eva connected to an Artec battery and a tablet.

Engine 3D model

The body of the engine and the larger details were scanned with Artec Eva. Spider was used to capture the more intricate geometry.

Medium-sized screw 3D model

This screw was scanned with Artec Spider after being sprayed with gloss reducing powder. A pair of pliers held the bolt vertically.

Gear 3D model

A good example of a symmetrical object, which is impossible for other scanners to capture without the application of stickers.

Compressor 3D model

This car compressor was placed on a rotating platform, which made scanning easy and fast. A very noticeable feature on this model is the holes.

Transmission 3D model

An old transmission box, scanned with Eva. A good example of a challenging object, since it has a lot of deep holes.

Spanner 3D model

A relatively easy object for scanning - the only challenges were its shiny surface (easily countered by anti-gloss spray) and the thin edges.

Power drill 3D model

Well used Rigid power drill scanned with the Artec Spider.

Ball joint 3D model

A very simple part to scan and a good example of scanning holes.

Panasonic GH4 3D model

We scanned our Panasonic GH4 with our Artec Space Spider. This was an untreated scan, so we scanned the camera as-is with no prep.

Eva 3D model

Have you ever scanned a scanner? We have! There were a few areas on the scanner with little geometry and texture variation.

Measuring Tape 3D model

This measuring tape was scanned as a potential demo object.

Stanley screwdriver 3D model

Small ratcheting screwdriver scanned with the Artec spider. Scanned in two passes, both laying on its side.

Steering joint 3D model

This part has a cylindrical shape, which is difficult for any scanner. But we found an easier way to scan it.


Torso 3D model

A popular application of Eva is making a fast scan of a torso to develop a diet plan or design an orthopedic corset.

Bust 3D model

This 3D model shows how well Artec Eva renders hair, a tricky area for some 3D scanners.

Arm 3D model

It's not easy to keep your fingers apart for a long time, so the scanning should be done as quickly as possible.

Full body scan 3D model

We used a tablet and the Artec battery pack so the scanning was really fast. It took only 4 minutes.

Eye 3D model

A quick self scan of an eye. A very noticeable thing here is that Spider has scanned past the natural eye lens and captured the correct position of the iris.

Ear 3D model

Scanning ears is a popular solution for making prosthetics: the detailed geometry of a healthy ear can be mirrored and made into a perfect replica.

Top of hand 3D model

A quick scan of the top of the hand with Spider allows you to see the fine details of the skin and nails.

Foot mold 3D model

This metal mold of a child's foot was scanned with Spider in less than one minute.

Science and education

Fish 3D model

A fish can be tricky to scan, since it's body geometry changes when you turn it over to scan the other side, unless it's frozen (and in this case it was not).

Damaliscus Korrigum 3D model

A beautiful skull of an African antelope, captured with Eva in two scans: the front and the back. These were then automatically aligned in Artec Studio.

Spinal bone 3D model

Although being slightly bigger than the original, this object still disproves the myth that Eva is only suitable for large objects.

Fox skull 3D model

This small and fragile skull of a desert fox was scanned with Artec Spider. While the model looks complicated, there were no challenging areas to scan.

Turkana Boy 3D model

Just like the Fox Skull, Turkana Boy skull consisted of two separate parts that were scanned separately, and aligned afterwards.

Sea shell 3D model

Even though the sea shell has complex geometrical curves and arms, its surface was easily captured with Artec Spider.

Product part 3D model

Product part made of plastic. Scanning time was around 5 minutes, and post-processing took about 20 minutes. This is a good example of fast reverse engineering.

Starfish 3D model

The object has a lot of fine geometry and small complex sections for scanning.

Art and design

Golden column 3D model

An architectural element, scanned with Eva in under 2 minutes. After scanning it was slightly adjusted in 3D modeling software and carved in styrofoam.

Napoleon 3D model

A 3D model of a 4.5-meter tall monument to Napoleon on horseback made by the French 3D visualization company IMA Solutions using an Artec Eva.

Striped Shoe 3D model

Leather surfaces often reflect the white glare from a scanner's flash. In order to prevent that we slightly tilted the scanner to avoid scanning at a 90° angle.

Chair 3D model

A wooden chair scanned with Eva. To scan the thin parts, we laid it onto the floor in order to get a background surface.

Chinese coin 3D model

This coin was thick enough to stand its side and was captured in just two scans. The second scan was to cover the side that the coin stood on.

Centurian helmet 3D model

The inner side of this old bronze helmet is very narrow. Artec Spider was able to scan it perfectly and in high detail.

Bronze statue 3D model

This small figurine of a Chinese horseman warrior was scanned to make perfect replicas in different sizes.

Decorative plate 3D model

Even though this plate has a thin and narrow edge, Artec Spider scanned it with ease, using the texture of the background.

Orange armchair 3D model

Sixties style chair from one of our office conference rooms. Scanned as-is with no modifications needed for tracking.

Grey armchair 3D model

The texture of the armchair may seem repetitive, but the pattern is actually unique and provides easy and reliable texture tracking.

Borderlands cosplayer 3D model

A cosplay of an armed mercenary girl from a popular videogame Borderlands.

Deathstroke cosplayer 3D model

A cosplay of a ruthless mercenary from DC comics universe - Deathstroke.

Harley Quinn cosplayer 3D model

A cosplay of a notorious super villain from DC comics universe - Harley Quinn.

Decorative vase 3D model


The symmetrical geometry of this vase could have made it difficult to scan, but thanks to its rich texture, capturing it with Eva was fast and very easy.

Bronze sculpture 3D model

The statue is very rich geometrically, and despite some large flat areas, the aged bronze provided plenty of texture, so tracking wasn't an issue.

Lu Yu 3D model

A statue of the Chinese Sage of Tea scanned with Artec Space Spider.

Dragon 3D model

A plastic figurine of fantasy dragon. It was made in black plastic, but no scanning spray was needed, since plastic was mat.

Dragon Chalice 3D model

A novelty chalice, made of plastic, with metal cup inside.

Dagger 3D model

A sharp dagger with fine woven metal mail on the handle.
