Artec 3D Scanning Helps Create Hybrid Reality at NASA

A tool like this Olympus Delta X-ray fluorescence (XRF) metals and alloys analyzer is likely to be used on Mars in order to determine the mass ratio of different elements in samples of rock collected on the Martian surface.

With the Artec Eva 3D scanner, engineers at NASA’s Hybrid Reality Lab are able to scan tools and other assets that are used in space and create 3D printed trackable versions that can be used to enhance training.
