Artec Group and Autodesk announce collaboration over integrating Autodesk Reality Computing software and Artec’s Eva and Spider
Artec Group and Autodesk are pleased to announce the beginning of their collaboration to integrate Autodesk Reality Computing software and Artec’s hand-held 3D scanners Eva and Spider. The project involves tight integration between capture devices and post-processing software to provide users with the best integrated experience and all-in-one solution. The collaboration will be initiated with the integration of Artec’s handheld scanners in Autodesk’s Project Memento. It will be marked by the presence of Artec’s Shapify body scanning booth at the Autodesk Pop-up Gallery in Paris, France on October 9-23, 2014.
Project Memento aims to offer an end-to-end, all-in-one solution for converting any reality capture input (photos, scans) into high-resolution 3D mesh models. Its core engine and data structure are built from the ground-up to support huge mesh datasets that are the standard result when converting reality data into a mesh. Memento has a focused toolset to clean up, fix mesh errors, and prepare /optimize the generated models for the Web and for mobile experiences, further design, or for fabrication.
Artec’s hand-held 3D scanners boast both high accuracy and high resolution. They can be used with CAD applications, for quality control purposes, and highly-detailed CG scenes. Recently, Artec’s latest product, the Shapify Booth body scanner, was installed in UK supermarkets Asda, delighting shoppers by making precise 3D-printed selfies — “shapies” — of them and their families.
