PLY 3D Models

Scanned using Artec 3D technology
Leo
Car Body 3D model

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.

Eva
Classic chair 3D model

An elegant upholstered chair. A fairly complicated object to scan — the polished black wood and the thin back and arms required a special approach.

Eva
Classic side table 3D model

A small bedside table, quickly scanned by Artec Eva in three scans. The thin legs might have been a challenge if they had not been scanned in front of a background (the wall and floor). Otherwise, a very easy to scan piece of furniture.

Micro
Copper key 3D model

A copper key scanned with Artec Micro. The key had to be sprayed due to its reflective surface.

Leo
Crocodile Statue 3D model

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.

Eva
Damaliscus Korrigum 3D model

A beautiful skull of an African antelope, captured with Eva in two scans: the front and the back. These were then automatically aligned in Artec Studio.

Combo
Doom combat scene 3D model

The craftsman who created this feast for the eyes definitely put a great deal of effort into their work. So did Artec Space Spider and Eva, the two handheld 3D scanners which were used to capture everything down to the finest features of this geometry-rich object in order to make the 3D model look as impressive as the original work of art, inspired by Doom, the epic shooter.

S. Spider
Dragon 3D model

A plastic figurine of fantasy dragon. It was made in black plastic, but no scanning spray was needed, since plastic was mat.

Micro
Drain Weasel wand connector 3D model

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.

Leo
Dual-clutch gearbox 3D model

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.

Micro
Electrical outlet 3D model

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.

S. Spider
Eva 3D model

Have you ever scanned a scanner? We have! There were a few areas on the scanner with little geometry and texture variation.

S. Spider
Eye 3D model

A quick self scan of an eye. A very noticeable thing here is that Spider has scanned past the natural eye lens and captured the correct position of the iris.

Eva
Face 3D model

Human face scanning can be required for oral and maxillofacial surgery or for other medical purposes. With Artec Eva it is really quick and easy.

Eva
Fish 3D model

A fish can be tricky to scan, since it's body geometry changes when you turn it over to scan the other side, unless it's frozen (and in this case it was not).

S. Spider
Flower 3D model

Scanning this flower with Artec Space Spider was fairly easy — one just needed to be mindful of  perspective change in geometry of the petals once the object was turned over.

Leo
Fountain Basin 3D model

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.

S. Spider
Fox skull 3D model

This small and fragile skull of a desert fox was scanned with Artec Spider. While the model looks complicated, there were no challenging areas to scan.

Eva
Full body scan 3D model

We used a tablet and the Artec battery pack so the scanning was really fast. It took only 4 minutes.

S. Spider
Gear 3D model

A good example of a symmetrical object, which is impossible for other scanners to capture without the application of stickers.

Eva
Golden column 3D model

An architectural element, scanned with Eva in under 2 minutes. After scanning it was slightly adjusted in 3D modeling software and carved in styrofoam.

S. Spider
Hand 3D model

Anything that moves is challenge to scan because of its changing geometry.

Leo
Large iron machine part 3D model

Artec Leo is often called in when the height of the object to be 3D scanned approximates that of a Yeti. Why?

Leo
Lion statue 3D model

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!

S. Spider
Makita Case 3D model

This section of plastic casing for an electric screwdriver is a very interesting object from a 3D scanning point of view.

S. Spider
Measuring Tape 3D model

This measuring tape was scanned as a potential demo object.

S. Spider
Metal cutting blade 3D model

This cutting blade was a great training instrument for scanning thin objects.

Micro
Metal nut 3D model

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.

Combo
Motorbike 3D model

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.

Eva
Orange armchair 3D model

Sixties style chair from one of our office conference rooms. Scanned as-is with no modifications needed for tracking.

S. Spider
Panasonic GH4 3D model

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.

Leo
Part of a mining machine 3D model

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.

Micro
Pipe bend 3D model

A pipe bend, scanned with Artec Micro. It took only two scans using the simple trajectory to get the full shape of the pipe.

Micro
Plaster cast of teeth 3D model

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.

Micro
Plastic Bolt 3D model

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.

S. Spider
Power drill 3D model

Well used Ridgid power drill scanned with the Artec Spider.

Micro
Screw 3D model

Small object — big challenge. How do you capture the thread of this 10 mm long screw using a 3D scanner?

S. Spider
Sea shell 3D model

Even though the sea shell has complex geometrical curves and arms, its surface was easily captured with Artec Spider.

Micro
Shampoo bottle cap 3D model

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.

S. Spider
Spanner 3D model

A relatively easy object for scanning - the only challenges were its shiny surface (easily countered by anti-gloss spray) and the thin edges.

Eva
Spinal bone  3D model

Although being slightly bigger than the original, this object still disproves the myth that Eva is only suitable for large objects.

S. Spider
Stanley screwdriver 3D model

Small ratcheting screwdriver scanned with the Artec spider. Scanned in two passes, both laying on its side.

S. Spider
Steering joint 3D model

This part has a cylindrical shape, which is difficult for any scanner. But we found an easier way to scan it.

Leo
Troll 3D model

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.

S. Spider
Turbine 3D model

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.

Eva
VW bus 3D model

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.
