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.
A beautiful statuette made out of bronze, depicting two mythological creatures that symbolize divine powers in ancient China — a dragon and a phoenix, and between them a huge pearl.
A novelty chalice, made of plastic, with metal cup inside.
Scanning ears is a popular solution for making prosthetics: the detailed geometry of a healthy ear can be mirrored and made into a perfect replica.
The body of the engine and the larger details were scanned with Artec Eva. Spider was used to capture the more intricate geometry.
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.
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.
This metal mold of a child's foot was scanned with Spider in less than one minute.
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.
A good example of a symmetrical object, which is impossible for other scanners to capture without the application of stickers.
Anything that moves is challenge to scan because of its changing geometry.
A quick scan of hand bones with nails made with Artec Spider. The object was scanned in three passes over just 8 minutes and processed afterwards for 30 minutes.
Captured with Artec Space Spider. This hub cap features a lot of rather flat monotone surfaces.
Infant skull, scanned with Artec Spider in three passes. The scanning took approximately 5 minutes and processing 25 minutes.
The intricate geometry of the frog’s skin was captured by Artec Spider in just 6 minutes! The model was scanned in two passes.
This highly precise 3D model of a mid-size leather bag was made using 3D data from an Artec Space Spider and photogrammetry, with over 450 pictures taken during a period of 15 minutes.
A statue of the Chinese Sage of Tea scanned with Artec Space Spider.
Need to scan a transparent object? Use an Artec 3D scanner. This model of a transparent magic potion bottle was created with Space Spider.
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 screw was scanned with Artec Spider after being sprayed with gloss reducing powder. A pair of pliers held the bolt vertically.
This cutting blade was a great training instrument for scanning thin objects.
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.
This pleurotus eryngii mushroom was very easy to scan due to its size and thickness.
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.
The backbone and ribs turned out to be an easy job for Spider, since even though the model is geometrically rich, it did not contain any particularly hard to scan surfaces.
A precise scan was created with Spider in just 6 minutes, with 25 minutes of processing time, including texturing.
Well used Ridgid power drill scanned with the Artec Spider.
Product part made of plastic. Scanning time was around 5 minutes, and post-processing took about 20 minutes. This is a good example of fast reverse engineering.
A taxidermy porcupine fish, scanned with Space Spider. A somewhat challenging object due to its semi-translucent skin and difficult geometry.
To create this high-quality 3D model, both the interior and exterior of this bright orange pumpkin were scanned using Eva and Space Spider.
Even though the sea shell has complex geometrical curves and arms, its surface was easily captured with Artec Spider.
This highly precise 3D model of a sneaker was made using 3D data from an Artec Space Spider and photogrammetry, with over 300 pictures taken during a period of 15 minutes.
A relatively easy object for scanning - the only challenges were its shiny surface (easily countered by anti-gloss spray) and the thin edges.
Small ratcheting screwdriver scanned with the Artec spider. Scanned in two passes, both laying on its side.
The object has a lot of fine geometry and small complex sections for scanning.
This part has a cylindrical shape, which is difficult for any scanner. But we found an easier way to scan it.
The Stegosaurus from the Denver museum of the Nature and Science is more than 26 feet long and over nine feet tall.
Scanned with Artec Eva and Space Spider. Eva was used to scan the entire stone, resulting in a superb digital replica, while Space Spider scanned the runes themselves, for a deeper view of the engraving marks and the surrounding stone, after which all scans were combined into one final model.
A quick scan of the top of the hand with Spider allows you to see the fine details of the skin and nails.
