In certain markets, quality hair is in high demand. If you’re making a digital double for movie special effects, a character for a video game or a VR/AR application, or a 3D printed figurine for someone who’d like to have a personalized keepsake, you’ll probably need a quick head scan that won’t regress into hours and hours of meticulous hair modeling afterwards.
With hair (and other tricky surfaces) in mind, Artec software developers worked their fingers to the bone to max out the resolution of Artec’s most popular body scanners, Eva and Leo down to an astounding 0.2 mm. To show off the results, the furriest guy around was scanned with Leo. “No smoothing out those bangs!” was the motto of that scanning and processing session. The comb-over & fade along with the boxed beard were faithfully recreated in myriads of submillimeter-accurate polygons and packed into a free human 3D model file in .stl format ready for CGI use.
