3D Scanning Adidas & Efficacy 4D

Europac 3D recently visited Berlin and scanned over 100 swimmers to optimize product design for elite athletes in collaboration with Adidas and Efficacy 4d. Athletes were able to be scanned free of charge and received gifts such as goggles and bathing caps.

Using the Artec™ Eva 3d scanner, a fast and hand held scanner, Shaun from Europac 3D was able to capture the swimmers accurately, transforming them into 3d models with all their measurements captured within the computer.

Artec™ Eva 3D Scanner is similar to a video camera which captures in 3D. Simply turn it on and walk around the object recording. The scanner captures up to 16 frames per second and each frame is a 3D image. These frames are aligned automatically in real-time. This means that during scanning, you see what you have already captured and which areas of the object need more attention. This real-time feedback makes scanning easy and fast.

Capturing and simultaneously processing up to 288,000 points per second, Eva scans a dozen times faster than a laser scanner, while providing high resolution (up to 0.5mm) and high accuracy (up to 0.1mm). Essential for the scanning of data such as human bodies.

The Artec Eva being completely portable also had great advantages when it came to scanning a whole lot of swimmers all the way over in Berlin.

Scanning such a vast range of athletes enabled the team to put together some impressive data of athlete bodies! This data will be used to help design the best sport wear for the next generation.
