Artec 3D’s UK Ambassador to showcase the latest 3D scanning technologies at DEVELOP3D LIVE

When it comes to design and innovation, there are just a few key industry events to keep your radar on. And luckily, one of them is coming soon to the UK.

Hosted on April 16th at Sheffield University, DEVELOP3D LIVE is the UK’s leading conference and exhibition that celebrates design, engineering, and manufacturing technology and how it brings world-leading products to market faster. This year, the show is welcoming over 30 inspirational speakers, including designers, engineers, additive manufacturing specialists, and others to share the latest industry trends, technologies, insights, and challenges they face when designing new products.

Artec 3D scanners and technologies will be represented at DEVELOP3D LIVE by our UK Ambassador and Gold Certified Partner – Central Scanning Ltd, at Booth A25. Established almost a decade ago in Birmingham, UK, Central Scanning develops close working relationships with their customers by offering customized 3D solutions from globally known brands including Artec 3D, along with professional and efficient service. Whether you need a 3D model of an object as small as a coin or perhaps a slightly larger one, such as a passenger car, Central Scanning is able to provide full service, including 3D scanning, digitization, reverse engineering, and inspection.

Which Artec 3D scanners should you expect to see at Central Scanning’s booth?

The 1st two handheld scanners that usually come together in a duet when scanning medium and small-sized objects with complex geometry are Artec Eva and Artec Space Spider. Both scanners use structured-light technology (white and blue, respectively) to build high-precision 3D scans of up to 0.05-0.1 mm, and can be used on a standalone basis or together if the object has many intricate details that need to be captured thoroughly. Consider Eva if you need to scan a medium-sized object such as a car or a motorcycle, or a human body, and Space Spider if you need to scan a smaller machine part, a key, or a body part, for example, a human ear. If you’re looking for a go-to affordable professional 3D scanner for manufacturing, design, reverse engineering, and rapid prototyping, look no further and check out both scanners at Central Scanning’ booth.

Next comes Artec Micro – our first industrial desktop 3D scanner for capturing small objects such as compact machine parts, jewelry, and dental components with very high precision and accuracy of up to 10 microns. Like Space Spider, the scanner uses blue structured-light technology, and a dual-axis rotation system to create the ultimate digital copy of tiny objects with a minimal amount of frames captured. Introduced in 2019, Micro is a recent addition to the Artec 3D scanner family, and has already been welcomed by professionals far and wide for such tasks as reverse engineering small objects, quality control, inspection, dental procedures, design, and more.

Another device that you’ll get a chance to see at the show is our long-range laser scanner Artec Ray. A recent addition to the lineup of Artec 3D scanners, Ray was designed to capture large-scale objects such as buildings, aircraft, and large vehicles, as well as pipes and wind turbines, from a distance of up to 110 meters away, with submillimeter accuracy. Powerful yet lightweight, the scanner supports scanning both indoors and outdoors, and comes with a tripod that allows you to scan from the best scanning positions possible. And the best part is that you can control the scanner with the Artec Remote mobile app, so there’s no need to keep any computer around during your scanning work.

And finally, please make sure to check and see Artec Leo in action, the king of 3D scanners, and our first completely portable 3D scanner, which offers automatic onboard processing and doesn’t require any wires or cables or additional equipment to perform seamless scanning sessions. The scanner is equipped with a touchscreen display that shows you your scanned object appearing in real-time, and allows you to export it immediately following the scanning session to Artec Studio, thanks to Leo’s on-board Wi-Fi. Leo has already been acclaimed as a cutting-edge 3D scanner of choice by numerous industry award competitions such as the Golden Mousetrap Awards, TCT, and the NED Innovation Awards, and has been recently nominated as a 2020 Edison Awards Finalist in the Applied Technology category.

All Artec 3D scanners integrate with Artec Studio software for post-processing and fine-tuning your scans.

We hope you can make it to DEVELOP3D LIVE. Artec 3D Ambassador Central Scanning will be happy to meet you and tell you everything about our 3D scanners.

See you there!
