Scanning this folding wooden chair with Leo may not have carried the same level of complexity as capturing a small industrial object with multiple thin ribs and recessed surfaces, but even so, the chair’s crisp edges along its cross rails, legs, and stiles, together with its precise interfaces among components, called for a high degree of precision, especially if the 3D model were to be used for an application such as reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, quality control, or anything demanding such a measure of exactitude.
While such an object could very well be 3D modeled from scratch, let’s say, for use in a VR product catalog, an AR furniture picker app, or as a CGI element, doing so would take extensive time and a suitable level of experience to achieve realistic enough effects. Leo makes fast work of the task, in minutes scanning the chair from top to bottom, with no surface left uncaptured.
And combined with Artec Studio 15’s HD Mode, the result is a scan with extraordinary heights of sharpness, precision, and immaculate surfaces. Even the natural complexity of the wood grain itself was captured, although this intensity of detail goes above and beyond what’s needed for all but the most demanding of 3D models. Processing in Artec Studio was reduced to a fraction of the usual, due to the advanced level of the scan from its earliest stage. This free chair 3D model is perfectly suitable for applications ranging from CGI to quality inspection, design engineering, and beyond.
