Scanned using Artec 3D technology
Shiny parts and repetitive patterns might seem like an obvious challenge for many, but with the 2022 Artec Leo, this axle shaft was captured in fine detail in just 10 minutes.
The comb-over & fade along with the boxed beard were faithfully recreated in myriads of submillimeter-accurate polygons and packed into a 3D model file in .stl format.
This detailed, high-resolution model of a shiny piece of metal with lots of holes and hard to reach areas was created, start to finish, in a total of about 35 minutes.
This popular and versatile model of a skid-steer loader was captured in high-resolution 3D with Artec Leo in HD Mode within 90 minutes.
This small and lightweight off-road vehicle was manually assembled pretty much from scratch by its owner – and its journey didn’t end there.
Shiny parts with lots of small details, holes, fine lines, and sharp edges are no longer something to fear, as demonstrated in this 3D scan of an engine.
All the thin edges and angled surfaces of the crankcase, together with its individual structural reinforcements, were captured with unmistakable fidelity.
In just 8 minutes this crankshaft, a core part of a 6-cylinder internal combustion engine, was scanned with Artec Leo in HD Mode.
Thanks to Artec Leo’s onboard automatic processing and in-built HD display, scanning was done in a flash and with no need to worry about any details missed.
Using the new, AI-powered HD Mode, all the thin edges, including the internal reinforcements, as well as the holes of various diameters, and the long, sweeping curves of the aerodynamic exterior were easily captured.
If you zoom in real close to this goat skull, you may end up immersed in incredible detail for longer than the two minutes it took to scan with the new 2022 Artec Leo.
Scanned with a Leo in HD Mode, this beauty was full of both large, sleek surfaces and small, intricate details.
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.
Can you capture color? With the new Leo, texture stands out vibrantly and bold, while fine lines and surfaces are accurately captured for a true-to-life 3D model.
With noise levels at an absolute minimum, holes become that much easier to scan, as can be seen here.
Just one look at this detail-rich 3D model of a snowmobile gives you an idea of how challenging the original object could have been to 3D scan.
The chair’s crisp edges along its cross rails, legs, and stiles, together with its precise interfaces among components, called for a high degree of precision.
What appears to be a normal, everyday office chair, plucked from the glass and steel confines of a typical high-tech office in sunny California, serves as a fine example of capturing modern furniture with Artec Leo.
This 3D model was created via a synergy of 3D data from an Artec Leo combined with texture from photogrammetry.
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.
Now, if this hyper-realistic 3D model of an adorable bear doesn’t conjure thoughts of a jolly Christmas, what will?
Team Artec is constantly putting 3D scanners through all sorts of tests to see how well they handle a wide range of objects, as well as to delineate the best path to follow for delivering the most accurate results. One such test project is showcased here on this page.
We used Artec Space Spider’s exceptionally high resolution and Artec Leo’s large field of view & high scanning speed to create a remarkably precise model from the combined raw data.
Part of an outdoor fountain basin, this 3D model of a croc was created with the Artec Leo 3D scanner and the powerful Artec Studio software.
Leo was able to scan this fountain’s 7-meter basin in just under fifty minutes, with no need for additional preparation or the use of extra features to improve the scanner’s tracking.
As a vivid example of what’s possible using a combination of two handheld 3D scanners, this 3-meter-long kayak was scanned and transformed into a highly-accurate, ready-for-VR 3D model.
Artec Leo is often called in when the height of the object to be 3D scanned approximates that of a Yeti. Why?
This lion is one of two nearly identical bronze animals prowling alongside the steps of a town hall. Mounted on a pedestal, it was a bit hard to reach, but not for Leo — its namesake!
This bronze monument overlooking San Francisco Bay was captured in full daylight with Artec Leo in only 45 minutes, as the sun was rising up above the water.
This tall statue in central Luxembourg, which commemorates one of the most famous local writers, was easily captured using a synergy of the wireless handheld 3D scanner Artec Leo and the tripod-mounted laser scanner Artec Ray.
Lucy, a 7-month-old puppy, was tired during her scan. Late one evening, after a full day, Lucy jumped onto an ottoman, ready to snooze. Thus a perfect Leo scanning moment appeared!
Wilson, a 7-year-old Ivory Lab, is very food-motivated. Without an ample supply of treats, this scan wouldn’t have happened.
This 3D scanning project embodies a confluence of factors that could have complicated effective capture and reconstruction of the wild variety of shapes that needed to be captured and reconstructed in this case.
To demo Artec Studio’s Photo Texture feature, we combined Artec Leo’s precise geometric scan data with an iPhone camera’s photographs.
This ordinary office Troll was scanned with an Artec Leo 3D scanner. In exchange for the promise of some meaty morsels, the troll agreed to pose for the scanning by leaning on a chair that was later removed during post-processing in Artec Studio.
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.
