Artec 3D to showcase breakthrough scanning solutions at DEVELOP3D LIVE

At the end of March Artec 3D will be exhibiting at UK’s leading design, engineering and manufacturing tradeshow DEVELOP3D LIVE along with our partners Central Scanning, Europac and Patrick Thorn & Co.

The show will see the British premiere of Artec Leo, the most advanced handheld 3D scanner on the market to date. Building on Artec’s scanning expertise, this scanner revolutionizes the industry. Leo features an in-built touchscreen and battery, which gives you unparalleled freedom of movement – no need to connect the scanner to a laptop or tablet during scanning.

Data is processed onboard, meaning you can see scans captured in real time on Leo’s screen. The scanner features the NVIDIA Tegra mobile platform, which is its own internal computer with FPGA, CPU and GPU processors running Leo’s own software. You can get a preview or a ready-for-print model of your object, and if you need to modify the scans, simply transfer them to your computer via Wi-Fi, Ethernet streaming or the scanner’s SD card.

With the 80 frames per second capture rate and enlarged field of view, you can scan much faster than before. Together with the new approach to data processing and the sleek hardware design, you get the impressive 3D resolution of up to 0.25 mm and 3D point accuracy of up to 0.1 mm, which guarantees sublime quality of scans.

Come by our stand to try out Artec’s award-winning handheld 3D scanners Eva and Space Spider. With these scanners you can obtain high-precision 3D models of objects with simple and complex geometry, ready for printing and exporting into reverse engineering and CAD software, such as Geomagic Design X, SOLIDWORKS, ZBrush and other industry acclaimed programs.

Creating 3D models with Artec’s portable scanning solutions is quick and easy, even if you have no experience at all. Artec Studio 11 3D scanning and processing software streamlines most of the operations. Even if you make a shaking movement with the scanner, you can rest assured that the software’s continuous scanning algorithms will pick up the scan, retaining tracking. Once the data has been collected, you choose to process it manually or using the Autopilot mode, where the program will ask you a few questions about your object and then automatically build a quality 3D model.

Artec will also present RoboticScan, which is new major step in 3D scanning automation. RoboticScan consists of a UR3 robotic arm with Artec Space Spider 3D scanner mounted to it. The robot moves the scanner around the object taking shots from all sides. The system can scan in autonomous mode, controlling the robot and moving the scanner along the optimal trajectory. Alternatively, the user can program the trajectory for the robotic arm to follow.

The autonomous mode is particularly useful for scanning large sets of objects of different shapes and sizes, like museum exhibits or archaeological finds. The programmed mode is great for scanning the same class of objects in big quantities and is particularly effective for ensuring quality control at production facilities, for example, on conveyor belts, where items need to be scanned in the shortest possible time.
