Get Scan Data Faster

Artec Cloud uses surfels, or surface elements, an alternative to polygonal modeling. Surfels increase the speed at which data is loaded, so even when you’re working on the web with your projects stored on a server, your data is within moments available for you. Data is also presented in a new, cleaner look. Any noise captured is smoother, which immediately gives you a better understanding of the scan quality.

Manual Mode

In the Manual mode, you’re presented with five stages of processing: Align, Prepare Scan, Make Model, Adjust Model, and Export. Once you processed the 3D models, you can be export with your chosen level of granularity in OBJ, STL, PLY, or VRML, while high-resolution screenshots take the form of JPG, PNG, or WEBP. Once that’s done, you’re ready to share, export, or send it.
