This human face 3D model was captured with an Artec 3D Scanner.
- Scanning time: 1 min
- Processing time: 4 min
- Scanner used: Artec Eva
Human face scanning can be required for oral and maxillofacial surgery or for other medical purposes. With Artec Eva it is really quick and easy – the scanning of this male head took less than a minute and the processing lasted for only 4 minutes.
The use of structured light scanning technology makes it possible to 3D scan the human body with all of its anatomical complexities for a wide range of healthcare applications, including facial augmentation and reconstruction, plastic surgery and more.
3D facial scanning is just one area in which Artec’s scanners have become indispensable tools to medical personnel. In a recent study, Artec’s Eva was used to scan a human face in order to examine the effect of sitting, standing and supine positions on facial soft tissue.
Before the introduction of 3D scanning, medical personnel had to rely on the use of conventional cephalometric techniques to get the required measurements of the human face. This was both unreliable and time consuming since it had to be done manually, leaving room for error. Getting precise measurements is paramount to the success of any healthcare application that requires manipulation of the human body, especially when the face is the area in concern. Since 3D scanning a face takes only an instant, the possibility of errors is minimal.
