New 3D Scanner Captures Color and Texture

Cincinnati, Ohio –  These enhanced capabilities make the MHT 3D Scanner ideal for a variety of applications including computer graphics & animation, archival, prototyping, and more.
The Artec MHT 3D Scanner captures a brilliant spectrum of colors (up to 24bpp). Capturing both color information of the object’s shape and its geometry results in fine textured models, which can then be opened and post-processed by a number of 3D software packages. Complete MHT systems including hardware, software, and training start at just $20,900.

As with other Artec 3D Scanners, the MHT requires no mounts or markers. It works just like a regular video camera, but instead of a two-dimensional image, the result is a three-dimensional image captured at speeds of up to 15 surfaces per second. The scanning process is extremely straightforward: simply walk around the object and scan it from various angles, while the accompanying software combines all the scanned images into one.
