Course details

3D Optical digitalization 1

1ODI-Z FaVU 1ODI-Z Acad. year 2023/2024 Winter semester 2 credits

The basic course of 3D optical digitization (3D scanning) is designed to familiarize students with the capabilities of scanning systems available at the FFA BUT (ATOS 1, Artec EVA) and the basic processing of 3D models obtained by 3D scanning technology. Students of the basic course will get acquainted with scanning of a figure and portrait with the Artec EVA system. The core part of the course focuses, both in lectures and practical exercises, on the basic processing and editing of data obtained using 3D scanning technology in Gom inspect 2017 software. The basic course taught in the winter semester is followed by the summer semester, which builds on the knowledge acquired in the first semester and focuses mainly on independent practical exercises and students' own creative activities.



Language of instruction




Time span

  • 6 hrs lectures
  • 20 hrs exercises



Learning objectives

The course is intended to introduce students to the technology of 3D optical digitization and its use for scanning spatial objects. Based on practical exercises, students should gain the necessary knowledge for further independent work in the processing of 3D scans, creating interactive models and sculpting using current technologies.


Students will get basic orientation in the use of optical digitization system at FFA BUT and in processing of 3D models in Gom inspect 2017.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Basic knowledge of working with a personal computer, patience and interest in 3D technology. Experience with 3D programs is welcomed. Basics of English.
