Artec 3D more than doubles the resolution for Eva and Leo 3D scanners
With the new AI-powered HD mode, Artec offers detail-rich scans with extensive surface coverage and a minimal to no noise
Artec 3D announces the successful development of a proprietary AI Engine that more than doubles the resolution of its Eva and Leo handheld scanners, to 0.2 mm in a newly released HD Mode. Artec 3D is the first and only company to utilize deep convolutional neural networks to reconstruct 3D surfaces and improve the quality of 3D models. With HD mode, users can create exceptionally accurate, low-noise scans of smaller, more detailed objects with complex surfaces, as well as large, intricate objects. HD mode is free and now available for all Eva and Leo users via Artec 3D’s latest scanning and data processing software, Artec Studio 15.
The new mode in detail
Artec 3D’S team of AI experts worked with Apple to develop its Face ID. Now, Artec 3D has leveraged its expertise to apply AI not only to 3D faces, but to 3D objects of any kind. The convolutional neural network powering Artec 3D’s AI Engine in Studio 15 software has been trained using millions of data points and hundreds of thousands of 3D models to ensure optimum performance in HD mode.
When an Eva or Leo operator turns on HD Reconstruction, they can look forward to scans with unparalleled degrees of resolution, coverage and detail. They can also select the desired density for HD scans, from a standard 1X all the way up to an astonishing 36X for Eva and 64X for Leo. To experience the benefits of HD Mode, users must utilize computers with NVIDIA GPUs and 2 GB (Eva) / 4 GB (Leo) of video RAM for proper scanning and data processing. NVIDIA is the Artec 3D recommended graphics card brand for Artec Studio users.
HD Mode allows users to scan more detailed objects in over twice the resolution, with Eva and Leo scanners. This mode easily captures sharp and thin edges in higher definition. Even complex structures with various hard-to-scan surfaces, such as this featuring holes and gaps, varying depths and angles, and recessed areas are now systematically reconstructed in every single frame to deliver the best possible scan. With HD Mode, tricky surfaces, such as this that are deep black, shiny or covered in hair or fur, are also easier to digitize with incredible detail. HD mode has an elite level of noise reduction in both raw data and final model, making scanned objects ready for receivers engineering, as well as many other applications, without needing any editing.
Many practical advantages
- High resolution: Powered by Artec 3D’s AI neural engine, you’ll get stunning, sharp 3D scans with a resolution of up to 0.2 mm.
- Small elements: Capture smaller, thinner elements with your 3D scanner in HD, and with minimal noise.
- Sharp edges: with your 3D scanner, fine edges can be captured in high definition, and close to their original shape.
- Hard to reach geometry: Easily capture hard-to-reach areas with your 3D scanner as your scans are reconstructed with every detail, giving you complete surface geometry.
- Shiny, black surfaces: Grab your scanner and capture dark or shiny surfaces in high resolution, in their original shape, and with no extra steps.
- Clean data: With the Artec AI engine, little to no noise in raw data leads to cleaner processed data and time saved for your final 3D model.
