Artec scans fully body-painted model
In military combat scenarios, it is usual for soldiers to paint their faces in natural colors for camouflage reasons. The fully body-painted model at the Forma Tool fair in Slovenia, certainly wasn’t looking to hide herself. Being captured with an Artec MHT, she was the centre of attention.
IB-PROCADD, Artec’s authorized partner in Slovenia, was showcasing the MHT scanner at Forma Tool, an international fair featuring tools, tool making and tooling machines.
On average full body painting takes about two and a half hours with no limits for creativity. Its scanning process lasted no longer than 3 minutes, though.
To seize the beauty of the artwork and to demonstrate Artec’s innovative scanning technologies, IB-PROCADD used an MHT, who not only acquires geometrical 3D data of the object, but also its texture. This type of scanner captures brilliant color up to 24 bits per pixel. Its results can compete with images shot with a modern video camera.
It takes 3 minutes to fully scan a human body with an MHT, be it painted or not. Thanks to real time scanning, incoming 3D frames are aligned into a coherent model while recording. So that the audience could see the model being constructed as the scanner moved along the body.

CAD and engineering publications pick up on our story about making use of 3D technologies to protect children against air pollution and viruses.
3D scanning with Artec Eva helped a Silicon Valley dad invent the ultimate respiratory mask to protect children against air pollution and viruses.
University medical art students need accurate 3D models as a foundation for their work as medical illustrators. The University of Dundee teaches them how to use Artec Eva and Space Spider for creating 3D models.
