  • All tests were performed in Artec Studio 11.
  • Prices are listed approximately (before VAT).


Test 1

3D-scanning process:

  • 2000 frames are captured in total per every session,
  • FPS is measured at start and end of every session.
  • Scanning mode is default one ("Geometry+texture" tracking method).
Scanner Object

Test 2

Outdoor 3D-scanning of the statue with Artec Eva:

  • 13 separate scans
  • 7964 frames in total
  • Size of all scans loaded in RAM: 9204 Mb
Process \ Time, sec GIGABYTE P35V2 HP ZBook 15 G3
Fine registration 86 68
Global registration 228 196
Sharp fusion (1st test) not enough memory 592
Smooth fusion (2nd test) 1160 1005
Small object filter 2,7 2,7
Fast mesh simplification 179 155
Texture mapping 152 113


  • Both fine and global registrations were launched by geometry only.
  • Sharp fusion was launched with "watertight" parameter.
  • Number of triangles for Fast mesh simplification was set at 600 000.

So HP ZBook 15 G3 is a nice and powerful laptop which provides excellent performance in both 3D scanning and post-processing.
