On the face of it, capturing this impressive replica of a traditional Italian divers’ helmet would appear a mammoth task. Originally designed for deep-water diving, the vintage headgear has a reflective brass exterior and glass faceplate – surfaces that are often a nightmare to scan.
With Artec Leo, however, these issues can be made a thing of the past. Using the world’s first wireless, AI-powered 3D scanner, it’s proven possible to capture every intricate detail, from the helmet’s viewport and oxygen supply connectors, to its front-mounted branding plate. The device’s HD Mode was instrumental in this, as it enabled all the glossy details to be picked up.
Artec Studio also allowed frames to be fully aligned, so that this model of the helmet’s collar – the part that sits on their shoulders – had uniform thickness all the way around. As a result, if you were to reproduce the retro-looking diving gear, you would find it fits just like the original. So, if you’re seeking an incredibly realistic maritime model, look no further.
Likewise, if you have any other shiny, dark, or reflective item that needs measuring or digitizing, the creation of this impressive model without the aid of any scanning spray, proves that Artec Leo is the 3D scanner for you.
