September 04, 2015

We performed some extensive tests with Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 and Artec scanners.

We used the tablet with the following specs:

  • Cintiq Model Number: DTH-W1310H
  • OS: Windows 8.1 Pro
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • Vieocard: Intel® Iris™ Graphics 6100
  • USB: 3 USB 3.0
  • SSD: 512 GB

Artec Studio 10

Both Artec Eva and Artec Spider were tested in Artec Studio 10 (version 10.1.0.92). During all tests in "Geometry+texture" scanning modes both Eva and Spider were capturing at good FPS:

  • Eva: 13-14 FPS, approximately 2200 frames were captured.
  • Spider: 6-7 FPS, approximately 1000 frames were captured.

Artec Studio 11

  • Scanner: Artec Eva
  • Artec Studio 11 version: 11.1.0.107
  • Scanning in "Geometry + Texture" mode (without real-time fusion):
    • 14 FPS, when you start the session.
    • After 3000 frames are captured (in total), FPS decreases up to 12.
    • After 4500 frames are captured (in total), FPS decreases up to to 7.
  • Scanning in "Geometry only" mode (without real-time fusion):
    • 14 FPS, when you start the session.
    • After 4500 frames are captured (in total), FPS decreases up to 7.
  • Scanning in real-time fusion mode:
    • 12 FPS, when you start the session.
    • After 500 frames are captured (in total), FPS decreases up to 9 (due to Intel card).
    • After 4500 frames are captured (in total), FPS decreases up to 5 (due to Intel card).
  • Main post-processing algorithms work correctly (align, global registration, sharp fusion, etc).
  • Texture mapping can also work on Intel card in Artec Studio 11. Maximum size of texture atlas available for this card is 4096 x 4096.

The tablet performance is excellent and what we especially liked is set of SHIFT/CTRL buttons right on the front panel. These buttons are extremely useful for Editor section in Artec Studio 11 while working with manual tools like Eraser or Defeature.
