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.
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.
A researcher focused on high-throughput phenotyping of perennial ryegrass needed a way to non-destructively measure 160 individual plants in the field 6-8 times over the duration of his project, to help identify specific plants with the most desirable traits for plant breeders and farmers.
Artec Eva is regularly used both in-house and at client locations for scanning difficult-to-3D model objects, particularly those with complex geometries, after which these scans are transformed into AR/VR-ready 3D models.
