Exact Metrology, a division of In-Place Machining Company and a comprehensive 3D metrology service provider and hardware sales company, now offers the 2022 Artec Leo from Artec 3D. With the new modifications, the company says better accuracy, more power, improved vibrant color capture and multi-language interface are possible.
The new NVIDIA Jetson TX2 processor in this new version runs at more than twice the power of its predecessor, while consuming less than 7.5 watts. Additionally, it’s equipped with multi-core processing with the NIVIDIA Denver 2. This adds two cores and even more horsepower to what’s now a Heterogeneous Multi-Processor Architecture, with 2GHz on each of the six cores. The 2022 Leo also features a new 3D scanning experience with a fresh new user interface and a screen that’s easier to use.
Accuracy is guaranteed with a new calibration certificate. To test the accuracy, every scanner is calibrated with highly precise reference objects in different positions within the scanner’s working volume, using different parts of the scanner’s sensor and at different distances. A calibration kit has also been introduced so users can independently check the scanner accuracy and adjust the parameters. The new Auto Temperature Control enables the scanner to regulate its operation and keep its components at optimum operating temperature for capturing data at maximum accuracy.
Building on the scanner’s advanced color-capture capabilities, the 2022 Leo has algorithms to automatically adjust the brightness level when scanning, providing true-to-life evenly lit color 3D models without the need for manual correction. The new texture optimization algorithm has reduced the size of the texture by two times, making it faster to process and load data for creating 3D color models.
The scanner’s interface is also now available in six different languages including English, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French and German.
