This recent project of Team Artec showcases the results you can get from combining close- and long-range scanning technologies when 3D digitizing an environment in minute detail. Quite a tricky object was chosen. As a matter of fact, there were two objects: the façade of a church near Artec 3D’s headquarters in Luxembourg, and a stele in front of it. Normally you’d use the long-range Artec Ray to scan façades. But in this case, a section of the surface was obscured by the stele, and that’s where a handheld scanner was needed. The most convenient solution to use for this kind of challenge is probably Artec Leo. This tetherless device can easily be brought to just about any site, where it will pick up details that escape the camera of a stationary scanner. Two datasets were made onsite using Ray and Leo. During the processing stage, each was merged into two separate scans, after which the two scans were fused into a 3D model. From start to finish, the job took less than 4 hours.
