HD Scanning Benefits

With HD Mode, your Artec Eva or Leo handheld 3D scanner can capture a broad range of objects flawlessly and in high detail: from smaller, intricate parts like thin pipes or valve handles, to larger areas with fine details like car engines or skeletons.

  • 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.

  • Shiny, black surfaces

    Grab your scanner and capture dark or shiny surfaces in high resolution, in their original shape, and with no extra steps.

  • 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.

  • Sharp edges

    With your 3D scanner, fine edges can be captured in high definition, and close to their original shape.

  • Scanning hair

    Notoriously difficult to scan, hair is captured more accurately than ever in HD Mode. Expect more geometry of short hair, and separate strands captured.
