Scan with Artec Studio for fast and stunning results using Artec’s unparalleled algorithms. The software includes the following functionalities to make 3D scanning easy for people without prior experience:

  • Total control of your movements with powerful texture and geometry tracking, even with jerky movements
  • Immediately picks up scanning where you left off
  • Build a model while you scan with Real-Time Fusion mode
  • Turn off the flash for scanning photosensitive objects

Autopilot Makes 3D Scanning So Simple

Advanced smart mode guides users through post-processing in four easy steps. It automatically selects the most effective settings for your scan data and produce accurate, watertight 3D models.

Make 3D Models in 3 Ways

Workflow 1:

Best for beginners
Accurate results in easy, automated steps
Accurate results in easy,
automated steps

Users are guided through a few questions about the object. The software deletes any unwanted captured data, auto-aligns the scans with one click, and instinctively selects the most effective 3D algorithms to create a high precision 3D model.

Workflow 2:
Manual Mode

Best for Advanced users
Full control and flexibility during the process
Full control and flexibility
during the process

Scan your object and choose the post-processing settings yourself. Advanced users have a full range of powerful tools to manipulate 3D scanned data exactly as they like, helping them get the best 3D scanning results.

Workflow 3:
Real-time Fusion

Best for Simple Objects
Enhanced Auto-Align Feature
Build your 3D model
as you scan

With Real-Time Fusion scanning mode, move the scanner around the object and see your model being built as you go. Perfect for scanning simple objects, such as limbs or torso, or for getting a quick preview.

Post-Processing of Scanned Data

Post-processing in Artec Studio is much faster and easier thanks to these features.

Automatic Base Removal
Smart Base Removal Tool

The software deletes flat background (i.e. floor, table) and now even curved or uneven base types automatically.

Simplify mesh
Simplify Your Mesh in a Flash

Optimize file size by reducing the number of polygons from millions to thousands, while maintaining high quality mesh.

Texture mapping
Texture Mapping at Lightning Speed

Texturing algorithm uses your videocard in the most efficient way. Add high quality texture to your model in no time.

Analyze Your 3D Models


Artec Studio comes with basic deviation analysis tools for measurement analysis:

  • Measure the surface and volume of your 3D model
  • Export linear, geodesic, and sections measurements in DXF, CSV and XML
  • Annotate your 3D model
  • Compare scans and models with surface distance maps

Scanning Difficult Objects

3D scanning black, shiny objects, or hair is no challenge for Artec 3D scanners. Artec Studio analyzes the surface of your object and automatically adjusts the sensitivity of your scanner to pick up even tricky areas for 3D scanning. Even new users can scan complicated objects without problems!

Added CAD/CAM Functionality

Direct Export to SOLIDWORKS and AUTOCAD

For users exporting files over to SOLIDWORKS or other CAD/CAM applications, you can now fluidly export unlimited numbers of open and closed contours as CSV or DXF files. This feature empowers you to reverse engineer simple shapes fast using only Artec Studio and SOLIDWORKS or AutoCAD. There’s no need for additional software. It’s a real time-saver and ideal for engineers, packaging makers, alike.

Export for Industry Use

Once post-processing is complete, export your 3D models and use them in your favorite software application, for fastest and smoothest path from 3D scan to CAD or advanced 3D modeling.

  • Direct Integration with CAD Systems
    Direct Integration with CAD Systems

    One button export makes it a seamless scan-to-CAD experience directly into Geomagic Design X. Install Geomagic FOR SOLIDWORKS (plugin) and your 3D models is just a click away from landing in SOLIDWORKS. It’s now even possible to work directly with SOLIDWORKS or AutoCAD by exporting multiple sections of your models from Artec Studio.
