Making Accurate 3D Models Has Never Been So Straightforward


An advanced smart mode which guides users through post-processing in a few easy steps, automatically selecting the most effective settings for your data and producing a high precision 3D model.

High precision

Whether you choose Autopilot or manual mode, Artec Studio never compromises on precision.

Optional advanced settings

Artec Studio has a full range of advanced settings, giving experienced users full control and flexibility.

Direct compatibility with CAD

Create a 3D model in Artec Studio and directly export it to SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD or Design X.

3D Radar for easy scanning

Color guided data visualization makes 3D scanning easy. Green tells you that you are holding the scanner at the optimal distance from the object, red means you are too close, and blue, too far away. Simple!

Create, edit and process even huge datasets

Artec Studio is so powerful that you can work with datasets of up to 500 million polygons. Perfect for scanning large objects and for making 3D models in maximum resolution.

Scan even black and shiny objects

Artec Studio features the most advanced algorithms for capturing hard-to-scan surfaces such as hair or shiny, black objects.

No need for markers

Artec's best in class color and geometry tracking means you don't need to stick targets on your object. Just point and shoot!

Glare-free scans

The Automatic Glare Removal feature uses advanced PBR algorithms to rid your scans of glare. Can easily save you hours of time.

Built with speed in mind

Powerful algorithms that process your data in seconds. Automated features to save you time.
