Today, I wanted to talk to you about Artec Studio 9’s (AS9) temperature adjustment algorithm. This new feature is not well understood, so I would like to clear things up.
All 3D scanners on the market suffer from the same ailment: as the scanner heats up, the calibration of this highly sensitive optical equipment gets skewed. The longer the scanner is on, the more inaccurate it becomes. This is true for all optical 3D scanners. Most manufacturers measure accuracy and then pass on this information to the consumer in the form of technical specifications. The problem is that the measurements are done while the scanner is still relatively cool. Unless the hardware and/or software have a way to compensate for this temperate fluctuation, accuracy will worsen over time. This is why we are excited to add the new temperature adjustment feature into the latest release of Artec Studio. This algorithm takes into consideration the internal temperature of our Artec Eva 3D scanner and makes necessary, automatic adjustments. This not only improves accuracy over distance, but also over time.

A research group in Belgium is boosting the capabilities of powered exoskeletons by customizing their design with the help of 3D scanning, CAD and 3D printing.
Valentin Vanhecke of the Dutch company 4Visualization has scanned the astonishingly well preserved skeleton of a giant dinosaur that lived 66 million years ago. The newly mounted skeleton is now on display at a local museum.
The combination of 3D scanning and reverse engineering makes it possible to quickly repair or replace critically important parts of vessels of the Dutch Royal Navy.
