3D scanning and printing

3D scanner

Escáner 3d Artec

The center has the Artec EVA 3D scanner, a portable scanner that can be held with one hand.

Artec EVA is ideal for making a quick, textured and accurate 3D model of medium sized objects. The scanner allows to quickly obtain models in high resolution and vibrant colours, thanks to its features this scanner can be used in an endless number of applications:

  • From rapid prototyping to quality control.
  • CGI.
  • Heritage preservation.
  • Automotive industry.
  • Forensic Science.
  • Medicine Science.
  • Prosthetic design.
  • Aerospace industry.
  • ...

Mobile workstation

The center has a Dell Latitude E5440 laptop that works as a mobile workstation for the 3D scanner.

The compact size of this equipment, the great duration of its battery and its high resolution touch screen make it the ideal equipment to work with the scanner anywhere.

EThe equipment has the Artec Studio 10 scanning software, a complete suite to manage the 3D models captured with the scanner.


  • Battery: 9 cells
  • Screen size: 14 "(1366x768 pixels)
  • Processor: i5-4310U
  • RAM: 4GB
  • HDD: 500GB
  • Operating System: Windows 7

3D Printer

​In addition, the center has a BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos printer in which prototypes and parts already designed or scanned by the 3D scanner can be printed.

3D printing is one of the most disruptive technologies, with an annual growth forecast of 50% during the next five years.

The resolution is one of the novelties that characterizes this printer, that can be adapted to different levels of detail ranging from 60 to 300 microns. These microns are easily configurable through the screen included in the BQ Prusa.


  • Print speed: 80-100 mm / s
  • Print resolution: 60 micron
  • Materials: filament 1.75-mm: PLA, wood, bronze, copper and Filaflex
  • Controller: BQ Zum Mega 3D of own design
  • Software: Marlin designed by BQ
  • Cards: SD
