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.
With a background in computer games and a love for building cars, it didn’t take long for Chris Ashton to find his way into the 3D scanning world, combining both profession and passion.
With the high-resolution 3D scans of hundreds of thylacine specimens, the research team veraciously measured each specimen, and then used the 3D scans of full thylacine skeletons to digitally sculpt a lifelike 3D model of a thylacine for digital weighing.
Back in the 1500s, the citizens and members of Mantua’s Jewish community couldn’t even imagine that their descendants would one day not merely be able to see their community’s signature artifact all in one piece, even after 500 years, but also be able to explore it up close in 360 degrees without even leaving their homes.
