Artec 3D’s Handheld Scanner Artec Leo Captures the Gold in the 2020 Edison Awards!
We’re excited to announce that Artec Leo has done it again, this time grabbing the Gold in the 2020 Edison Awards Applied Technology category (Subcategory: AI UX (User Experience)). After careful deliberation, this AI-based 3D scanner with onboard data processing was selected from a shortlist of other trailblazing innovations for the highest award in its respective category.
Since 2008, Artec 3D has been creating state-of-the-art 3D scanners. Today, Artec 3D scanners are busy scanning objects of all kinds around the globe in industries as diverse as automotive, education, healthcare, reverse engineering, quality inspection, and beyond.
The Artec Leo is a quantum leap forward in 3D scanning, giving users of all skill levels the power of professional, high-resolution 3D scanning with fully wireless, onboard automatic processing. Regardless of industry, users can now easily capture objects in vivid color 3D and watch a digital replica of the object appear in real time on Leo’s rear touch panel screen. In mere minutes, it’s possible to create stunningly accurate 3D models of everything from the human body to high-performance bicycle frames to priceless art objects, and much more.
The Artec Leo has been engineered from the ground up to deliver the most intuitive scanning experience from beginning to end. This translates to unparalleled ease-of-use, where even newcomers to 3D scanning can be capturing objects within their first few minutes of use, while veteran scanning pros find their workflows to be more productive than ever before, especially with the Artec Leo’s ultrafast 3D capture rate.
From industrial design to manufacturing to healthcare or CGI, with Artec scanners, ‘impossible’ is a word that we have little reason to use.
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.
