Because You’ll Get More Value and Longevity Compared To Other 3D Scanners In the Market.
Artec continues to be at the forefront of 3D scanning development with new innovations coming out every year that pushes the technology to new heights. Here are the top reasons why you should invest in an Artec 3D scanner.
Not all 3D scanning software is created equal and Artec Studio is not your typical 3D scanning software. Actions say a lot when Artec continuously devotes its resources to R&D. The 3D scanning software undergoes one major version update once a year to ensure new and existing customers get the most out of their 3D scanners. With new updates happening every year, Artec Studio’s algorithms (especially the AI ones) get even better scan results with new features and added functionalities.
Artec Studio excels as the industry-leading 3D scanning software because it’s not just a 3D capturing and scan data post-processing software. With even more reverse engineering, inspection, and CGI tools inside the new Artec Studio 18 (AS18), you get a lot out of an Artec 3D scanner.
Artec Studio’s user experience is one of the best 3D scanning software you can find in the market. Let Artec Studio do all the hard work so you don’t have to.
3D Scanning + Post-Processing
Reverse Engineering Tools
3D Inspection Tools
Transform physical objects into digital 3D models. It’s as simple as point and shoot.
Whether you’re a power user or just starting out, you can have complete control with the Manual Mode or the Autopilot Mode to create amazing accurate 3D models in the shortest amount of time.
Speed up your design process by using 3D scan data as a guide for CAD (Scan-to-CAD).
Artec Studio’s Auto Surface tool enables one-click conversion of complex organic shapes into solid CAD models. It also has Boolean operations so users can modify models with CAD entities and meshes using the Union, Subtract, and Intersect tools.
Compare 3D scan data with CAD model or a golden standard with color maps.
Datum alignment allows you to align meshes and CAD models using key geometric features in just a few clicks. You can do quick measurements and mesh-to-CAD analysis right inside the software. It’s fully integrated with Geomagic Control X for inspection directly inside the Artec Studio interface.
Get amazing realistic, full-color 3D models.
Every Artec scanner captures texture data in full color. Use Artec Studio’s CGI toolsets— including full-color 3D scan data, texturizing via photogrammetry using digital SLR cameras or mobile phones, and auto glare removal—to create replica 3D models with perfect geometry and color representation.
Say goodbye to clunky workflows or using multiple programs to work with others. With Artec Cloud, you can now store all your models without dealing with FTP or other third-party storage services. The recipient(s) of your files would be able to access or view the 3D models using a browser with Artec Cloud.
The new Artec Cloud online collaboration platform empowers you, your colleagues, or your clients to upload, view, and discuss scans and 3D models—all in one central location.
You can even process your scan data directly on the web browser, or download them onto your desktop for further viewing or processing with Artec Studio!
New! Now all plans have the same features (Viewer, Collaboration, and Processing capabilities)—including the free plan. They only differ by the amount of storage capacity.
There’s a common misconception that hardware needs to be the latest and greatest to achieve amazing 3D scanning results. In our lab, we had our Artec Eva for more than 6 years. Simply by upgrading our Artec Eva to Artec Studio with HD Mode, it feels like a new scanner in terms of performance. Artec Studio’s HD Mode uses AI neural network to capture high-resolution HD data for ultra-sharp, clean, and detail-rich scans. With game-changing features such as cutting down processing time and doubling the resolution with HD Mode, you’ll be glad you own an Eva or Leo.
Instead of buying a brand new scanner every couple of years, why not invest in an Artec 3D scanner? Artec’s HD Mode clearly demonstrates that the power is in the software. Just by upgrading to the latest version of Artec Studio with HD Mode, you can get the best 3D scanning results out of the Artec Eva or Leo.
If you think about it, upgrading the software is only a fraction of the cost of buying a completely new 3D scanner. Updating to the latest version extends the life of the system. Buying an Artec 3D scanner saves you money in the long run.
Typically, the Artec Eva is an ideal 3D scanner for scanning medium sized objects (i.e. Gearboxes, construction equipment, castings, alloy wheels, human body, furniture, statues) but our team is always looking for ways to push the limits of what a 3D scanner. Therefore, we scanned a small object with the Eva.
We scanned the same object using these settings.

|Scan results you would get before Artec Studio 15
|Scan results from Artec Studio 15 (When HD Mode was first introduced.)
|Scan results from Artec Studio 16 (We did this test when Artec Studio 16 came out. The latest version of Artec Studio is 18.)
Comparing the scan results, you can see how just by upgrading the software—while using the same hardware—drastically improves scan results. The details are much sharper and cleaner in Artec Studio 16. The biggest leap in improvements is from Artec Studio 14 (and previous versions) to Artec Studio 15 (when HD Mode was first introduced).
With the latest version of Artec Studio 18, speed improvements for HD reconstruction is now 4x faster compared to previous versions of the software. As a result, you can significantly accelerate your processing workflow, and do so much more in far less time.
We’ll keep this one short and let the results speak for themselves.

Artec has all the 3D scanners you need to do the job. You can scan everything you need from as small as a tiny screw to as large as a football field.
Artec’s desktop, handheld, and Lidar 3D scanners all use the same 3D scanning software, Artec Studio. That means all you have to do is learn one software. You can use two or more Artec 3D scanners (i.e.: pair the Leo/Eva with Space Spider, or Ray with Leo) and combine the scan results to get the best of each system.
Because of the range of 3D scanners Artec offers, you can use their systems for a variety of applications. Whether you need it for reverse engineering, quality inspection, scientific measurement, forensics, and VR/AR, there’s a system for you.
