A question that comes up a lot is what is the difference between the Artec Eva 3D Scanner compared to the Artec Eva Lite.

Watch the vide below as TriMech 3D Scanner Product Sales Specialist, Brian Metzger, explains the differences between the two 3D Scanners:

What is the Artec Eva?

Artec Eva High Definition handheld 3D scanner is the ideal choice for those that need to receive a quick, textured and accurate scan. Eva doesn’t require markers or calibration. It captures objects quickly in high resolution and vibrant colour, which allows for almost unlimited applications.

How is the Artec Eva used?

Based on safe-to-use structured light scanning technology, the Eva is an excellent all round solution for capturing objects of almost any kind, including objects with black and shiny surfaces.

Artec Eva’s ease of use, speed and precision has made it an essential product for a wide range of industries. From rapid prototyping to quality control, CGI to heritage preservation, the automotive industry to forensics, medicine and prosthetics to aerospace, the device is used to customize, innovate and streamline countless forward-thinking industries.

What is the Artec Eva Lite?

The 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 provides geometry only tracking and capture. Does not capture texture or colour.

How is the Artec Eva Lite used?

This affordable 3D scanner can be used for making high quality textureless 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 colour, it collects significantly less data. As a result, it is less power hungry and can be combined with a more affordable computer.
