    Scan the object

    Distance color map to aid scanning

    To help you keep the optimal distance to the object during scanning and thus capture more data in less time, Leo has visual aids in place. The surface you're scanning will be displayed in red on Leo's screen if you're holding the scanner too close to it, or blue if the distance is too great. And if it’s green? You're doing everything right.

    Scan the object

    Never miss a spot

    Smart surface quality indicator on the display lets you see which areas have been captured completely, and which require additional attention, for example more frames or more coverage from different angles. It also gives you hints if you are scanning too fast or holding the scanner too far.

    Smart data capture, no targets needed

    Leo’s state-of-the-art hybrid geometry and texture tracking frees you up from using any additional equipment like targets or markers for stable scanning. You can just point it at the object and start scanning. It’s that easy.

    Got a Question About the 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.

    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.

    To learn more about scanning people with Artec Eva, visit our Support Center.

    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.

    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.

    Scan the object

    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.
