Accuracy improvement through temperature adjusting algorithm in Artec Studio 9

14/11/2012

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.
