Artec Eva Lite 3D Scanner

Artec Eva is an entry-level professional 3D scanner and the budget version of the bestselling white light Artec Eva. Featuring the same accuracy specs, but with reduced functionality. The Eva Lite provides geometry only tracking and capture. Does not capture texture or color. This affordable 3D scanner can be used for making high quality texture-less 3D scans, such as the human body.

The Artec Eva Lite is an attractive inexpensive option for companies with limited budgets who are looking to get into 3D scanning. Since the Lite version of the scanner does not capture color, like the Artec Eva, it collects significantly less data. As a result, it is less power-hungry and can be combined with a more affordable computer. If your budget allows it at a later point, you can easily get the full functionality from your 3D scanner with a simple upgrade.

  • Fast Scanning Speed at 16 fps: Capturing and simultaneously processing up to an impressive two million points per second!
  • High 3D Point Accuracy at 0.1 mm: Artec Scanner provides high accuracy for scanning objects.
  • Impressive 3D Resolution at 0.5 mm: Scan in high 3D resolution. Capture geometry easily.
  • Safe to Use White Light: Eva uses white structured light technology, making it totally safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.

Ideal for education and research

3D scanning is an effective and innovative approach to gathering, presenting and analysing 3D data for education and research purposes. The Artec Eva Lite is ideal for schools and universities, providing students with high tech professional equipment, which has now become even more affordable.

As part of the Artec Educational Package, the price for Eva Lite is even more accessible and also includes:

  • 20 licenses of Artec Studio

  • Two year guarantee

Requires Artec Studio Professional Software.

What is the difference between Artec Eva and Eva Lite?

The main difference between Artec Eva and Eva Lite is that Eva Lite doesn’t capture the color of an object due to a disabled color camera. It can only capture the geometry of an object, and with half the 3D resolution, compared to Eva — 0.5 mm vs. 0.2 mm (in HD). Because color tracking is not available, it’s harder for Eva Lite to keep the track of an object while scanning, and it works best for objects that don’t have textured features, or unique or rich geometry. Also, there are a few differences in the software functionality. For example, «Auto-Alignment» of scans is not available for Eva Lite, as well as «Fine» and «Global Registration» for texture in Artec Studio and adding texture («Texturing») once the data has been captured.

Is Artec Eva Lite the best affordable 3D scanner?

The answer to this question very much depends on what scanner/scanners you compare it to. Eva Lite is a budget version of Artec’s award-winning handheld Eva 3D scanner which is used by thousands of major companies worldwide. It features lots of the functionality of Eva which is sufficient for many applications, including healthcare, education, and research. At any point Eva Lite can be upgraded to Eva, which is capable of capturing a wider range of objects in color and at a higher resolution, sharpness, and quality (in HD Mode).
