Scanned using Artec 3D technology
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.
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.
An elegant upholstered chair. A fairly complicated object to scan — the polished black wood and the thin back and arms required a special approach.
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.
A copper key scanned with Artec Micro. The key had to be sprayed due to its reflective surface.
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.
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.
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.
A plastic figurine of fantasy dragon. It was made in black plastic, but no scanning spray was needed, since plastic was mat.
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.
Have you ever scanned a scanner? We have! There were a few areas on the scanner with little geometry and texture variation.
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.
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.
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).
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 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.
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.
We used a tablet and the Artec battery pack so the scanning was really fast. It took only 4 minutes.
A good example of a symmetrical object, which is impossible for other scanners to capture without the application of stickers.
An architectural element, scanned with Eva in under 2 minutes. After scanning it was slightly adjusted in 3D modeling software and carved in styrofoam.
Anything that moves is challenge to scan because of its changing geometry.
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 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 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.
Sixties style chair from one of our office conference rooms. Scanned as-is with no modifications needed for tracking.
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.
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.
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?
Even though the sea shell has complex geometrical curves and arms, its surface was easily captured with Artec Spider.
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.
A relatively easy object for scanning - the only challenges were its shiny surface (easily countered by anti-gloss spray) and the thin edges.
Although being slightly bigger than the original, this object still disproves the myth that Eva is only suitable for large objects.
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.
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.
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.
