Artec Leo review

The Artec Leo is a professional portable 3D scanner made by Artec, a manufacturer based in Luxembourg.

The Artec Leo uses the structured light technology to 3D scan a wide variety of subjects and their textures (colors): objects, mechanical parts, people, vehicles and environments. A specific pattern of light is cast upon the surface to 3D scan. The deformation of the pattern is then analysed and the properties of the 3D surface is registered. The Artec Leo relies on VCSEL light source. VCSEL (Vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) technology is a type of semiconductor laser diode with laser beam emission perpendicular from the top surface. This makes the Artec Leo capable of operating under a wide variety of lighting conditions. Moreover with the 3D HDR technique developped by Artec the Leo can capture even the difficult to 3D scan black and glossy objects or parts.

Another key feature of the Artec Leo is its embedded IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) of 9 Degrees of Freedom inertial system, including an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a compass. With this equipment the Artec Leo does not require additional markers (or trackers) and instead relies on a mix of texture and geometry tracking.

This 3D scanner is optimized for portability wireless 3D scanning. The Artec Leo is equipped with a NVIDIA Jetson mobile platform (including a FPGA, a quad-core CPU and a 1 teraflops GPU processor). It includes a build-in-battery. With the Artec Leo there is no need to connect the 3D scanner to a laptop or tablet while 3D scanning, a true advantage compared to less portable solutions.

For easier 3D scanning process the Artec Leo is capable of performing onboard Real Time Fusion of data. Thanks to a large half HD touch screen of 5.5″ it is now more intuitive for the operator to stay on track during the 3D scanning process. In addition the Leo will be available with the latest developments of the Artec sofware, called Artec Studio 12 and released in April 2017.

Compared to the Artec Eva the Artec Leo is 5 times faster (80 frames per second vs 16 frames per second) and has a twice faster data acquisition speed (up to 4 million points per second). The texture resolution also has been dramatically improved, with a 2.3 MP capabilities, compared to the 1.3 MP of the Eva. Another great upgrade is the large field of view of the Artec Leo, 6 times larger compared to the Eva. The volume capture zone is 173,000 cm3 (approximately a whole bathtub), enough to capture large objects in a few steps. The ultra fast exposure time (between 0.0001 and 0.0002 seconds) offers less sensibility to environment variations.

The Artec Leo is a great fit for engineers working on large pieces, architecture, aerospace applications and criminal investigation.
