Scanned using Artec 3D technology
Full of smaller, finer details as well as holes, fine lines, sharp edges, and smooth, possibly shiny surfaces, the dual-clutch gearbox becomes a lot easier to scan with Artec 3D’s new HD mode.
Hollow areas or surfaces inside the rim that were previously quite tricky to capture in one go have been reconstructed in full detail with no artifacts or noise.
Whether intended for reverse engineering or quality inspection, this impressive 3D printable model of compressor would easily fit the bill.
Effectively 3D scanning such a diminutive 6" × 6" × 4"(15 cm × 15 cm × 10 cm) powerhouse, with its diverse and sundry assemblage of parts, is a formidable challenge for a quality inspection or reverse engineering workflow.
Have a good look around this model and have a look at the lines, the details, the form, and the fact that the 3D model represents the original object with astounding accuracy.
Boosted by the AI-injected feature of Artec Studio 15 called HD Mode, the scanner managed to capture all the teeny details of the engine in high resolution with no help from scanning spray or markers.
Just a few minutes of scanning was enough to capture a significant portion of the frame’s geometry for a vivid example of what HD Mode is all about.
Scanned with Artec Eva, two common scanning challenges were overcome: Black surfaces, and shiny objects.
With noise levels at an absolute minimum, holes become that much easier to scan, as can be seen here.
This 3D model was created via a synergy of 3D data from an Artec Leo combined with texture from photogrammetry.
The texture of this 3D model of a Klemm L25d VIIR LX-MA airplane was created using the BPR render settings in Sketchfab. We used three main settings: specular, color and glossiness.
This Klemm L25d VIIR LX-MA airplane is an exhibit at the Aviation Museum in Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxeumbourg. The airplane is hung from the ceiling of the tall museum building and would therefore be an insurmountable challenge for a short-range scanner, but not for Artec Ray, which can scan an object from up to 110m away!
A very simple part to scan and a good example of scanning holes.
Taking only 20 minutes to scan the whole car, and just under one and a half hours to process the captured 3D data, this highly accurate 3D model was ready in under two hours from start to finish.
The complex geometry of this carburetor makes it a very simple object to 3D scan!
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.
A watertight 3D-model of a plastic cube produced by ProtoLabs.
Owing to the grainy structure of its texture this compressor makes an excellent scanning object.
While this object may appear to be an insignificant little chunk of plastic, it’s actually part of an uber-useful device for vanquishing nasty clogs from drains. Known to millions around the world as the Drain Weasel, this sink snake thrusts the power of modern plumbing wizardry into your very hands.
Yes, this is one of those dandy not-so-little devices that no one wants to hear their mechanic talking about, especially not while he’s rubbing his hands together and has a certain little gleam in his eye.
Plastic can reflect light directed at it. That’s simple yet very useful info for someone who wants to have an electrical outlet 3D scanned.
The body of the engine and the larger details were scanned with Artec Eva. Spider was used to capture the more intricate geometry.
Have you ever scanned a scanner? We have! There were a few areas on the scanner with little geometry and texture variation.
A good example of a symmetrical object, which is impossible for other scanners to capture without the application of stickers.
Captured with Artec Space Spider. This hub cap features a lot of rather flat monotone surfaces.
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 for full scanning mobility.
Artec Leo is often called in when the height of the object to be 3D scanned approximates that of a Yeti. Why?
This section of plastic casing for an electric screwdriver is a very interesting object from a 3D scanning point of view.
This measuring tape was scanned as a potential demo object.
This screw was scanned with Artec Spider after being sprayed with gloss reducing powder. A pair of pliers held the bolt vertically.
This cutting blade was a great training instrument for scanning thin objects.
A metal nut, just over 15 mm, easily scanned with Artec Micro in just two scans. Unlike handheld scanners, Micro was able to scan this piece without the need for any additional features or background.
This motorcycle was scanned with both Eva and Space Spider. Eva allowed for fast and easy acquisition of the overall shape, while Space Spider was used to scan the intricate geometry of the wheels and the sides.
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.
A junkyard is what awaited one mining machine whose glorious times had been forgotten to the junkyard of history... until one day a knight in shining armor appeared on the doorstep of a mine in southern Luxembourg.
A pipe bend, scanned with Artec Micro. It took only two scans using the simple trajectory to get the full shape of the pipe.
Despite its complex geometry and reflective surface, this 1.5 cm plastic bolt was captured using the ultra-precise Artec Micro in just three scans.
Well used Ridgid power drill scanned with the Artec Spider.
Small object — big challenge. How do you capture the thread of this 10 mm long screw using a 3D scanner?
The complete model of this Smart car was created from approximately 10-13 scans taken from various positions around all sides of the vehicle. We also took two scans from below, with the car raised on a car lifter.
A relatively easy object for scanning - the only challenges were its shiny surface (easily countered by anti-gloss spray) and the thin edges.
Small ratcheting screwdriver scanned with the Artec spider. Scanned in two passes, both laying on its side.
This part has a cylindrical shape, which is difficult for any scanner. But we found an easier way to scan it.
An early 1900’s tower well valve scanned on-site with Artec Eva, connected to a portable battery and a tablet.
An old transmission box, scanned with Eva. A good example of a challenging object, since it has a lot of deep holes.
This small turbine was scanned in three passes using a rotating table — this enabled the operator to easily capture all the curves from different angles with less hand motion.
This hippie bus was scanned with Artec Eva. The bottom parts that could not be accessed with the scanner were modeled in third-party software.
