Artec 3D’s revolutionary scanner Artec Leo announced as a 2020 Edison Award finalist
Artec Leo’s breakthrough 3D capture technology propels it to the Edison Award shortlist.
We’re happy to announce that Artec Leo has been nominated as a 2020 Edison Award Finalist in the Applied Technology category (Subcategory: AI UX (User Experience)). In the weeks to come, a panel of 3,000 industry professionals and experts will decide upon the winners of the gold, silver, and bronze medals for each category. The list of award winners will be revealed in April.
Artec Leo makes 3D scanning as easy as shooting a video: watch your 3D model being created in real time on Artec Leo’s touchscreen.
The Artec Leo is the first AI-based 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing. It can provide the most intuitive workflow, making 3D scanning as easy as taking a video. As you scan your object, you can see the 3D replica being built in real time on Leo’s touch panel screen. Leo’s ease-of-use combined with its cable-free portability and stunningly fast, high-resolution capture technology distinguish it from other 3D scanners. Total beginners and scanning pros alike now have the ability to easily turn real-world objects into lifelike 3D models in minutes, which makes Artec Leo an ideal tool for reverse engineering, quality inspection, medical applications, VR, and beyond.
“It’s an honor for us to be recognized for this esteemed award,” said Art Yukhin, CEO of Artec 3D. “When we set out to design Artec Leo, we didn’t want to merely improve upon our existing scanners. Instead, we decided to take a long view into the future. We wanted to create a revolutionary professional-grade scanner that not simply meets the stringent digital capture demands of today, but also unlocks a wide spectrum of possibilities for anyone, regardless of experience level, to easily create high-quality 3D models for manufacturing, science, healthcare, education, and more.”
The 2020 Edison Award Finalists have been selected from today’s most exciting, world-changing innovations in 16 separate categories. Past winners have included Fortune 500 companies, as well as trailblazing start-ups and other forward-thinking organizations.
When a scanner is used on a moving body, it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, so instead of a homogeneous shape, a three-dimensional “motion blur” is the result. In this case, digitally capturing the horses as perfectly as possible was a must.
They say that all roads lead to Rome. And in one case, a smooth journey from Canada to the Vatican was ensured via the use of 3D scanning.
