The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Centre for Innovation (CFI) has received Artec’s 3D handheld scanner that can capture objects with a point accuracy of up to 0.1mm.

Known as Eva, the general-purpose white light scanner will enable the RAN to make a quick, textured and accurate 3D model of scanned objects using a 3D printer. The tools are part of a test programme that will enable the RAN to make replacement parts and prototypes of equipment to facilitate repairs at sea.

The CFI is a space that provides an opportunity for the naval community to brainstorm, develop and prototype ideas, turning them into practical solutions. The collaborative office/workshop space can facilitate design sprints, rapid prototyping and collaboration.
