One of the more odd, or out there things I did during CES 2020 was to get a full 3D face scan. This was through the Bellus3D Arc which aims to provide more affordable options for heading scanning.

I was thinking of this being great for smaller indie developers that might need this type of tech but it does have other uses. Not only does it capture the face, it also scans the structuring whether you’re looking for teeth based print outs or even the more fine tuned elements of the face for other means.

They have an app for usage, this allows some tweaks such as setting a light source or seeing color-less scans as well. What makes this particularly interesting is that it only takes a few seconds, and they have some fill-in technology to capture the full showcase of one’s face. It can also automatically align with dental scans and CBCT scans.

The face exports can be sent out in .obj, .ply or .stl formats. It was interesting to check out, you can see my capturing and they nail some elements. I was fairly impressed with the nose capture and this could be a solution for a number of industries. This model, the Arc will be available for developers in Q1 2020 with multi-camera configurations starting at under $2500 USD.
