3D lab equipment
We use different surface scanners based on projected structured-light for different animal/object size and in order to achieve different levels of detail.
Schematic 3D scanner using projected light patterns and 2 cameras. More about structured-light 3D scanners at Wikipedia.
Artec 3D Space Spider
The Artec 3D Space Spider is a handheld and (optionally) battery-powered scanner used for medium-sized objects (10—50 cm). It can be easily transported and used in the field. It provides with colour texture and features a resolution of 0.1 mm with accuracy up to 0.05 mm.
GOM ATOS I SO
The GOM ATOS I SO is an industrial optical 3D scanner mounted on a motorized mechanical harm and used in the lab for small sized objects (1-10 cm) with accuracy better than 0.005 mm.
For scan examples, see our 3D gallery at Sketchfab.
We have a Windows 10 Pro based Super Micro workstation for 3D image analysis equipped with two quad-core Intel Xeon Gold CPUs, 256 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce TITAN Xp GPU and 32” 4K EIZO EV3237 display.
