Artec Eva

Fast 3D scanner for professionals

  • Named best 3D scanner under $50,000 by iReviews.

This structured-light 3D scanner is the ideal choice for making quick, textured, and accurate 3D models of medium-sized objects such as a human bust, an alloy wheel, or a motorcycle exhaust system. It scans quickly, capturing precise measurements in high resolution.

Light, fast, and versatile, Eva is our most popular scanner and a market leader in handheld 3D scanners. Based on safe-to-use structured-light scanning technology, it is an excellent all-around solution for capturing objects of almost any kind, including objects with black and shiny surfaces.

Industry-standard handheld 3D scanner

Artec Eva’s ease of use, speed and precision has made it an essential product for a wide range of industries. From rapid prototyping to quality control, CGI to heritage preservation, the automotive industry to forensics, medicine and prosthetics to aerospace, the device is used to customize, innovate and streamline countless forward-thinking industries. Eva was even used to scan Barack Obama and help make the very first 3D portrait of an American president.

Tablet and battery compatible for true portability

Link up the 0.85 kg 3D scanner to a tablet and the Artec battery pack, which provides up to 6 hours of power, and you can scan practically anywhere, even in areas where there is no source of electricity.

Safe to use

Eva uses white structured light technology, making it totally safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.

No targets & calibration. Just point and shoot

No need for preparation, just plug in the scanner and point it around the object as you would with a video camera. Simple.

Bundling and easy integration

For capturing larger 3D objects or for creating an automatic scanning system, several scanners can be bundled and synced together. You can also integrate the scanners into your own customized solutions using the free of charge Artec Scanning SDK.

Powerful hybrid geometry and texture tracking and capture

Eva is able to read both the geometry and color of the object being 3D scanned. As a result, it collects two sets of data by which to track and perform data processing.

  • Easier, smoother 3D scanning
  • Faster processing of 3D data
  • Achieve best possible results with geometry and texture data combined
  • Scan even large, featureless objects using color differentiation
  • Option to scan with targets

Got a question about Artec Eva 3D scanner?

What is HD Mode for Artec Eva?

HD is a scanning mode powered by artificial intelligence algorithms that allows you to create sharper, cleaner, and far more detailed 3D models with a resolution 2X higher than the original SD data. In HD Mode, a resolution of up to 0.2 mm can be achieved, and your Eva can capture much smaller and thinner elements, hard-to-reach areas, black and shiny surfaces and other parts that were difficult or impossible to capture before. HD Mode is available for Leo and Eva scanners running Artec Studio 15.1 or higher.

Visit here for more information about HD Mode.

Is Artec Eva safe for scanning people and animals?

Yes! Eva uses white structured light technology, which is absolutely safe for scanning any living creature. To get the best results, make sure that the person or animal holds their pose for the entire scanning process to avoid any artifacts or noise on the final model. Animals, fidgety as they tend to be, are often very tricky to capture so we recommend scanning them while they sleep.

Does Artec Eva need targets or calibration?

No. Eva requires neither targets nor calibration to get started. The scanner uses powerful hybrid geometry and texture tracking to capture the objects in 3D — even those with minimal features. Eva collects two sets of data by which to track and perform processing, which results in much easier, faster, and smoother 3D scanning, as well as faster 3D data processing in comparison to scanners that require targets for scanning.

Smart and easy 3D data processing software

Enjoy the full range of advanced tools with the most comprehensive 3D data processing software available today.

Working with 3D scanning data has never been easier thanks to the smart Autopilot mode which ensures the most seamless workflow for new and experienced users alike, by automatically guiding them through all of the processing steps. This revolutionary mode applies the best possible algorithms to your scan data in order to build a perfect 3D model right before your eyes.
