[Update] January 18, 2018
The Teguar team provided us with one more tablet to be tested with our 3D-scanners, so we had a chance to check TRT-3012-II together with Eva, Eva Lite, Space Spider and Artec Studio 12.
The tablet specifications are as follows:
- 11,6” touch screen
- Windows 10
- i5-5200U @ 2,20Ghz (with its 4 threads, utilized by Artec Studio)
- 8Gb RAM
- Intel HD Graphics 5500, driver version 22.214.171.12435
As we see, the current processor (i5-5200U) is less powerful, comparing to the one installed in TM-3110-22F (i7 5700HQ). As the result, FPS is at its maximum only if 3D scanning session is made with Eva Lite.
|Scanner type||Tracking type||FPS during the test||N of frames, captured during the test|
|Artec Eva Lite||Geometry only||14.5 of 16||4000|
|Artec Eva||Geometry + Texture||8 of 16||3600|
|Artec Space Spider||Geometry + Texture||5 of 8||4000|
In general we do not recommend using 8 Gb and less, since it is below the minimum requirements.
Also, note that such significant amount of Spider raw data might occupy most part of free RAM on this tablet. So if you are willing to use Artec Spider for continuous scanning sessions of 4000 captured frames and more, it is highly recommended to stop 3D scanning at some point, unload the captured data from RAM and then continue your scanning session.
Overall we'd recommend TRT-3012-II medical tablet to be used with Eva Lite, which is frequently used in medical applications by our worldwide clients. In this case, its hardware specifications are sufficient for both 3D scanning and post-processing.

Today we had a chance to test the Teguar TM-3110-22F tablet alongside the both Artec Eva and Space Spider. We really loved its performance, so take a look at our observations below!
About the tablet:
The Teguar TM-3110-22F is a fanless medical computer with a large touch screen and silent operation, thus, it's perfect for use in surgical suites, radiology labs, and other treatment environments.
We tested a model with the following specifications:
- 21.5" HD touchscreen
- Windows 10 Pro
- USB 3.0.
- Intel i7 5700HQ 2.70GHz processor
- 16 GB RAM
- Intel HD Graphics 5600 (we used driver version 126.96.36.19931)
Scanning performance test
- First, we checked Geometry+Texture mode and captured about 4,000 frames using Artec Eva to determine the average scanning speed. The result (15.4 FPS) was close to the scanner’s maximum (16 FPS) during the entire test.
- Because real-time fusion mode uses the video card intensively, we also tested the tablet in that mode to evaluate the performance of the Intel HD Graphics 5600. We captured a large scene (about 1,600 frames in total) and achieved 15–15.4 FPS throughout the scanning session.
- Artec Space Spider operates at its maximum FPS on this tablet, as well (both in regular scanning mode and in Real-time fusion mode).
Post-processing performance test
- We ran a full postprocessing cycle over all the data we captured with Artec Eva during the scanning-performance test: fine and global registration, sharp fusion, and mesh simplification. Since the speed of these algorithms depends on the number and power of the CPU cores, this Teguar model with the high-performance Intel Core i7 processor easily handled all our calculations for the scanned data. Global registration and sharp fusion are usually the longest and most resource-intensive processes, but not in this case; they took just 3.5 minutes and 4 minutes, respectively.
- The maximum output texture size depends on the video card’s capacity; our tests showed the Intel HD Graphics 5600 can generate up to 8,192 x 8,192 textures. Also, we confirmed that texture mapping runs flawlessly on this tablet.
The Teguar TM-3110-22 is a good example of a powerful tablet that delivers high performance. It can perform medical 3D scanning and quick postprocessing of captured data. We expect that combining this tablet with some kind of hospital monitor arm, like the one below, is a good idea:
The tablet will be especially beneficial for operators who are using Artec Eva and can quickly move around the patient or scene they’re scanning, capturing all details at maximum FPS and with total flexibility
