Scanning artifacts at a major Peruvian history museum
Eva has been used to scan a total of 15 ceramic, stone and wooden artifacts at the Museum of the Nation in the Peruvian capital of Lima.
The models will be featured in the museum’s presentation on augmented reality and museography to be held through the Qhapaq Ñan (Great Inca Road) project during the Qhapaq Ñan week on November 3-8 and sponsored by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture. Most of them will be used for a 3D reconstruction of an Inca palace at Tambo Colorado, an adobe complex near Peru’s Pacific coast.
Check out the 3D models below (courtesy of Francisco Correa). You can rotate them and view them with and without texture.

Artec would like to thank Ms. Yanoa Pomalima, an archaeologist working at the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, for her invaluable help on this project.
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.
If you hear about something unexpected surfacing in Australia, no one would blame you for first thinking about some kind of wily mammal making its way into town, or an alarmingly large spider that you’d be better off leaving alone. In this case, the surprise came in the form of a boat.
3D scanning with Artec Eva helped a Silicon Valley dad invent the ultimate respiratory mask to protect children against air pollution and viruses.
