Scanned using Artec 3D technology
For a significant scanning challenge, it was time to get up close, for a highly-detailed model of this industrial clamp.
Easily captured with the desktop high-resolution 3D scanner Artec Micro, this tiny plastic wand connector section of a Drain Weasel would be a challenge for many other 3D scanners.
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.
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.
This diminutive skull's 55mm length, 26mm height, and 34mm width, together with its ample degree of geometric complexity, made it a fine choice for scanning with Micro.
A copper key scanned with Artec Micro. The key had to be sprayed due to its reflective surface.
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.
A pipe bend, scanned with Artec Micro. It took only two scans using the simple trajectory to get the full shape of the pipe.
This object is considered as «large» for trajectory purposes. Although we used only a «simple» type of trajectory, with fewer frames, all of the intricate curvatures were successfully captured.
Small object — big challenge. How do you capture the thread of this 10 mm long screw using a 3D scanner?
The cap was made of semi-transparent plastic and required a bit of dusting with an airbrush. Then it was mounted on the scanner’s rotating platform with a clamp. A couple of mouse clicks — and scanning commenced.
