Eva Lite is the budget version of the bestselling white light Artec Eva 3D scanner. It features the same accuracy specs, but with reduced functionality: Eva Lite has geometry only tracking and capture. As a result, this affordable 3D scanner can be used for making high quality texture-less 3D scans when scanning geometrically rich objects, such as the human body.
This makes Eva Lite an attractive and inexpensive option for healthcare clinics with a limited budget or indeed anyone who is interested in purchasing a professional white light 3D scanner with minimal funds.
Additionally, since Eva Lite does not capture color, it collects significantly less data. As a result, it is less power hungry and can be combined with a more affordable computer. See details on recommended makes and models in our support center or contact our support team for individual queries.
The Artec Eva Lite features:
Accuracy of up to 0.1 mm with no need for targets
3D resolution of up to 0.5 mm
Industry leading 2-year warranty
Eva Lite can be upgraded to Eva at any point for the price difference between the two scanners
So if the budget allows it at a later point, you can easily get the full functionality from your 3D scanner.
And for schools and universities, providing students with high tech professional equipment has now become even more affordable. As part of the Artec Educational Package, the price for Eva Lite is even more accessible and also includes 20 licenses of Artec Studio, two years free upgrade and a two year guarantee.
Artec Turntable is a smart rotating platform that’s fully-automated and integrated with Artec Studio software. Powered by Bluetooth for out-of-the-box 3D scanning, Artec Turntable is the perfect companion for the ultra-resolution handheld 3D scanner Artec Space Spider.
Its synchronized rotation system with auto-tracking recovery is designed to enable beautiful, full-coverage 3D scans of your small objects quickly and easily. If tracking is lost anytime during scanning, the platform simply pauses and turns back about 15 degrees, continuing once tracking has been regained. This way, you’re ensured flawless digital captures every time!
With any plan in Artec Cloud, you’ll be able to view and comment on existing projects from any browser.
With easy viewing that you’d expect to see in any standard application or program, you’ll be able to browse through and find the project you’re looking for on any plan. The Collaboration and Processing account is required to organize folders
Within these folders, you’ll be able to view both previews and detailed information about your scans, and see who has access to these projects – it’s like any drive you’ve used before, but made with your scan data in mind.
Have you ever had a scan that was almost perfect – but ‘almost’ wasn’t good enough? With Artec Cloud’s Hover feature, you’ll be able to single out which scan needs correction simply by mousing over the part in question and then leaving a comment with your instructions.
In Collaboration mode, expect no more missed messages, messy project management, or poor coordination. Here, entire projects can be worked on in one place, making it far easier to coordinate among your team.
Scans can be uploaded, comments can be left, and essential conversations can be had – you’ll even be able to share images with your co-workers for reference or inspiration. If you need to have something scanned, start a new project on Cloud, upload a photo for reference, send it to your teammate – they’ll be able to receive your task, respond to your message, and get right to work.
Save your work
With Collaboration, you won’t miss anything, either; a full history of your discussions and communication will stay right here. With all your data and previous work kept in one place, you can expect easy reference and excellent communication within your team.
If you or your client has a visual of what they’d like to be scanned, an image can easily be attached into your project, too. Send the project and an invitation to your client or 3D service provider, and so begins the work. Artec Cloud is now the only platform you need for communication and collaboration to take place.
Import & Share
If you are on a Collaboration or Processing plan, you’ll be able to upload and download 3D data and models. Supported files include Artec Studio data formats and popular 3D model formats such as OBJ, PLY, STL, and WRL. Uploaded data is available online immediately for viewing right away. You can share your work with colleagues on Viewer accounts and they will be able to view and comment on it.
With Artec Cloud, you now have easy processing with the tools you need most, right on your browser.
If you’ve gone all in with a full-access account, your processing options are similar to Artec Studio – choose between Manual and Autopilot. On a Processing account, you can process up to 20 projects per month – and since you don’t have to use up your computer memory, GPU, or CPU, you can process as many as you like at a time.
In manual mode, you’re presented with five stages of processing: Align, Prepare Scan, Make Model, Adjust Model, and Export.
The alignment tool is made with ease of use in mind: Choose between manual and auto to align multiple scans according to your needs or preferences.
With fewer actions and steps, there's no need to switch between panels or different groups of algorithms, making it that much easier for new users while saving time for all. When selecting Key Frames, type the number you want, or move the slide to the desired digit.
The Make Model process corresponds with Fusion in Artec Studio. Here, you can fuse your scans and create your 3D model before proceeding to the next stage.
The final step in processing is to adjust your model. Here, you can work on texturing, mesh simplification, and removing any unnecessary noise to clean up your final model before you’re ready to share, export, or send it.
Your processed 3D models can be exported with your chosen level of granularity in OBJ, STL, PLY, or VRML, while high-resolution screenshots take the form of JPG, PNG, or WEBP.
Also powering up the Processing plan is manual editing. Here, you’ll have the ability to utilize the most essential tools from Artec Studio, which you can use at any stage of Processing.
Edit your data with the Eraser, Position, Transformation, Smoothen, and Mirror tools.
Remove unnecessary or unwanted data from your 3D scanning scene to create crisp, clean 3D models.
Reposition or center your objects as you require during your processing. The Position tool is useful for when you work with several objects, or need to center your objects within a coordinate system.
Within Artec Cloud, you are able to change the size of your scanned objects should you need them on the same scale as one another, or larger or smaller than they appear.
This tool is useful for when you need to smoothen scanning defects, which may at times occur when scanning tricky surfaces or hard-to-reach areas.
Particularly useful in reverse engineering, the Mirror tool lets you flip your scan data to create a mirrored version of the objects you have scanned.

Got a Question About the Artec Eva Lite?
The main difference between Artec Eva and Eva Lite is that Eva Lite doesn’t capture the color of an object due to a disabled color camera. It can only capture the geometry of an object, and with half the 3D resolution, compared to Eva — 0.5 mm vs. 0.2 mm (in HD). Because color tracking is not available, it’s harder for Eva Lite to keep the track of an object while scanning, and it works best for objects that don’t have textured features, or unique or rich geometry. Also, there are a few differences in the software functionality. For example, «Auto-Alignment» of scans is not available for Eva Lite, as well as «Fine» and «Global Registration» for texture in Artec Studio and adding texture («Texturing») once the data has been captured.
The answer to this question will very much depend on the task you want to accomplish, the size and the geometry of the object that you need to scan, and the results you want to achieve. Unlike other Artec scanners, Eva Lite doesn’t capture the color of an object, so to scan the object successfully, the object itself must have unique and rich geometry so that the scanner can «see» and capture it from every angle. Make sure that the object you want to scan meets the following criteria, and check other parameters that are essential for you, such as the scanner’s recommended object size, accuracy, and resolution.
The answer to this question very much depends on what scanner/scanners you compare it to. Eva Lite is a budget version of Artec’s award-winning handheld 3D scanner Eva which is used by thousands of major companies worldwide. It features lots of the functionality of Eva which is sufficient for many applications, including healthcare, education, and research. At any point Eva Lite can be upgraded to Eva, which is capable of capturing a wider range of objects in color and at a higher resolution, sharpness, and quality (in HD Mode).

Updated yearly with new and exciting features
The possibilities of what you can do with your scanner are constantly growing with annual updates to Artec Studio. You’re essentially upgrading to a new scanner every year, with game-changers such as slashing processing time and doubling the resolution of your Eva or Leo scanner with HD Mode.
Scan-to-CAD for reverse engineering
The right features can make scan-to-CAD for reverse engineering a breeze, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with Artec Studio. Expect high-speed alignment, primitives fitting, and advanced plane functionality for quick and excellent results. Export your scans and CAD objects to SOLIDWORKS in just one click.
As a rule of metrology, even when your scan is an impeccable digital twin of a part or object, if it isn’t properly aligned with its corresponding CAD reference model, any variances that show up can be unreliable due to misalignment.
With Datum alignment, all it takes is a few clicks to fully align your meshes and CAD models using key geometric features.
Enhanced targets support for metrology
Gain better manual control over reference objects for data registration such as circular targets, spheres, or checkerboards, if your scanning workflow requires it.
See them in 3D as part of your workspace, choose spheres or circular targets for registration, measure the distance between them, identify which are out of place or missing, and exclude them from registration. In addition, you can now import and choose multiple reference target clouds into the workspace.
Convert complex organic shapes into solid CAD models in one click with the new Auto Surface feature. Facilitate reverse engineering of complex geometries and create referential CAD surfaces for in-depth RE workflows in third-party CAD software.
Modify your models with CAD entities and meshes, using industry-standard boolean operations: Union, Subtract, and Intersect. Build molds, create complex shapes, fine-tune meshes to match the design intent, and more.
Independent CAD shapes
Easily create, resize, and reposition primitive solid shapes into any part of your mesh, with no need to specify the required area for fitting. Just select the primitive you want to add, including the new cube shape (box), and that’s it.
Artec Studio now keeps a history of the conditions and relations specified for each primitive, so you can save, edit, and refit them anytime – even outside the Construct panel. In addition, it allows you to base new constraints on the ones you imposed in previous sessions.
Mesh splitting for 3D printing
For AM professionals, preparing meshes for 3D printing is easier than ever thanks to the new Split by plane feature. This allows you to quickly and precisely break your mesh into manageable chunks, using a pre-fitted plane.
Improved Segment Brush
You can now change the size of the selected region dynamically with the Segmentation sensitivity slider. Simply mark the area you’d like to construct the CAD primitive in, and adjust the degree of expansion area with the slider.
Erase via Object selection
Your mesh editing process is now even faster thanks to the new Eraser selection mode “Object selection.” Instantly remove any unwanted elements from the scene by simply selecting separate parts of the mesh and removing them.
New Hole Filling tool
An updated Hole Filling algorithm lets you create smooth patches over any missing areas on a model. You can now choose between Flat and Smooth types of hole filling to restore the missing surfaces more precisely.
Perfect your 3D model texture for CGI
Working with photos is now even better thanks to improvements in our photo-texturing algorithm. You can now easily preview photos taken for the texture via the new photo-viewing mode and see how they fit into the texture.
Register photos in Artec Studio
Remove photos with any defects, overexposure, or ones that are poorly lit or taken at a suboptimal angle and see how they impact your final texture. With the new algorithm, images are sorted into groups: by size, camera type, or focal distance, allowing you to register them separately, and use all of them for texturing.
Artec Studio 17 Features
3D scan black, shiny, or fine areas
Artec Studio analyzes the surface of your object and automatically adjusts the sensitivity of your scanner to pick up areas that are tricky for 3D scanning. As a result, even new users can digitize black, shiny objects, or hair with ease.
Speed up your workflow by performing reverse engineering operations right in Artec Studio. A full range of primitives including freeform fitting, will have you zooming along from fitting to constraining to CAD export.
Integration with SOLIDWORKS
With such an easy shift to SOLIDWORKS, your process is more streamlined than ever. In Artec Studio 16, you're never more than one click away from export to SOLIDWORKS.
Photogrammetry + scan data
Scan data and photogrammetry can now be combined in Artec Studio, making it possible to create accurate, high-res, and picture-perfect 3D models ready for use in CGI, VR/AR, and animation.
