This helps ensure that your device’s accuracy is not affected by temperature changes that might have subtle effects on readings from internal components. 3) Calibration Kit: Use this tool to recalibrate the scanner for applications where you absolutely need to make sure you get the most accurate results every time.

Sharper, Cleaner, And More Detailed Scan

Sharper, Cleaner, And More Detailed Scan Data—Even In SD Mode

Thanks to the new reconstruction algorithm, the data you capture with the Artec Leo is now sharper, cleaner and more detailed than before, all in SD mode.

Even Color, Every Time

Even Color, Every Time

Texture too dark or too light? Not a problem. Building on the scanner’s advanced color-capture capabilities, the 2022 Leo features algorithms to automatically adjust the brightness level when you’re 3D scanning. You get true-to-life, evenly lit color 3D models every time without the need for manual correction. In addition, the new texture optimization algorithm has reduced the size of the texture by 2x, making it faster to process and load data for creating 3D color models.


It Speaks Your Language

The 2022 Artec Leo’s interface is available in six different languages including English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. It makes this portable 3D scanner even more accessible to professionals around the world.

One Device, Countless Applications
