A car so classic it’s been featured in famous films ranging from Lethal Weapon to Ocean’s Eleven, the Mercedes-Benz CLK 430 has had plenty of time in the spotlight. And its portfolio is now significantly expanded with the car being digitally captured in full form for our 3D model viewing pleasure. Scanned with a Leo in HD Mode, this beauty was full of both large, sleek surfaces and small, intricate details. Observe its glossy sides for a good idea of how well Leo captures shiny surfaces: In a case like this, it was also incredibly useful that with Leo you’re able to stop the scan at any moment, and continue right where you left off. This continuous scanning feature automatically recognizes previously scanned areas, allowing scanning to continue seamlessly while you see it all built in real time on Leo’s touchscreen display.
Leo’s versatility and ability to accurately capture smaller parts is at its best here: Zoom in to the dashboard details and investigate the detailed tire markings and fine lines of the Mercedes logo on both the front and back of the car, and on its steering wheel.
With scanning taking 1.5 hours and processing in Artec Studio complete in 6 hours, reconstruction in HD Mode for Leo added another 3.5 hours, and the results speak for themselves. Take this car for a spin and have a look from every angle — it’s as smooth a ride as they say, and it’s now all yours to behold and explore.
