What is Artec Cloud? A new way to work.

Here’s your answer to 3D scan data viewing, collaboration, and processing right on your browser. Whether you’re scanning out in the field and require quick responses, or are working with teams based in different locations, Artec Cloud makes your data accessible and downloadable to you, your colleagues or your clients, wherever they are.

Operating as a server that allows you and your team to upload, download, import, export, view, comment on, share, and process 3D scan data, Artec Cloud is an easy-to-use and real time collaborative platform that brings more flexibility to your 3D data workflow.

Efficient

Sharing 3D scan data and models with your team directly in Collaboration and Processing mode makes your workflow that much more efficient. Your colleagues or your clients will be able to actively contribute to the process either by viewing, commenting on, or processing your captured 3D scan data. With any account, they’ll be able to submit requests and leave comments, and you’ll be able to produce the results, saving you time and resources while cutting out additional trips to the site of your scanning. This can save you hours if not days of work.

Immediate

Gone are the days when your workflow of scanning, processing, and discussing the results with your team could only be done separately, or with lengthy delays due to the transfer time required when sending large files. Scan an object or an environment with any Artec 3D handheld scanner and upload your data to Artec Cloud right away. Here, the next stage starts as your clients instantly access your work right from their browsers — and so begins the collaboration.

Accessible

Your data is now available faster, too. In Artec Cloud, data is presented in a new, cleaner look. Any noise captured is smoother, which immediately gives you a better understanding of the scan quality. This is all due to the use of 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 to view in Viewer mode, work on in Collaboration, and process in Processing mode. 

Process projects simultaneously

With Artec Cloud, save time as you process numerous projects at the same time. With your CPU, GPU, and memory left unoccupied, you’re free to work on other tasks as Artec Cloud does all the hard work — or just come back to find your projects processed and ready to go.

Easily integrated

Artec Cloud gets along easily with Artec Studio 16, or it can be used as a standalone. This platform allows you to simplify and expedite your work process and collaborative efforts for larger projects, or redefine it completely for smaller tasks.

How can Artec Cloud work for me?

You’ve always been able to bring your handheld Artec 3D scanners anywhere in the world. Now, you can take your team with you, too.

Quick communication

Forget the days of snapping screenshots to demonstrate which scan area you mean, or utilizing numerous platforms to have the conversations you need. Now, you can pin context-dependent comments and images directly onto the 3D data with any Artec Cloud plan, making your feedback clearer than ever. This is your new way to communicate.

Real time responses as you train or teach

With Artec Cloud, you can receive real time comments, questions, and feedback as you process captured data or launch new projects. Whether your focus is sharing scans and models you’ve uploaded and receiving comments and feedback in any mode, or diving into new projects and processing captured data with your colleagues and clients in paid Processing, the tools offered within Artec Cloud are catered to your training and business needs.

Easily compatible

Artec Cloud is compatible with Leo, Eva, and Space Spider, can be accessed on all major browsers, and runs on Windows and macOS. Using Artec Leo, you’ll be able to upload your projects directly to Artec Cloud without needing SD cards or cables, while Eva and Space Spider support upload from Artec Studio. Download projects from Artec Cloud onto your computer when you need to!

With an easy-to-use interface and a simplified processing workflow, everyone from a scanning expert to your new client will be able to benefit.

Choose the plan that works for you

To cater to the varying needs of yourself, your colleagues, and your customers, Artec Cloud comes in three different price plans: Viewer, Collaboration, and Processing.

All Features, Explained

Based on the plan you choose, you and your team can access, view, comment on, and process 3D scan data directly from your browser. Have a look at the top features you can add to your workflow with Artec Cloud.

Access

With any plan in Artec Cloud, you’ll be able to view and comment on existing projects from any browser.

Project Browser

With easy viewing that you’d expect to see in any standard application or program, you’ll be able to browse through and find the project you’re looking for on any plan.

With the Collaboration and Processing accounts, you’ll also be able to organize folders and line them up exactly as you need them.

Project View

Within these folders, you’ll be able to view both previews and detailed information about your scans, and see who has access to these projects – it’s like any drive you’ve used before, but made with your scan data in mind.

Hover

Have you ever had a scan that was almost perfect – but ‘almost’ wasn’t good enough? 

With Artec Cloud’s Hover feature, you’ll be able to single out which scan needs correction simply by mousing over the part in question and then leaving a comment with your instructions.
 
Using the Hover tool, you can advise your colleagues or scanning service provider to redo a certain part, clean up noise, and more.
 
With your comments directly on the parts that need attention, and kept within the software interface, your communication is now more seamless and clearer than ever before.

Collaboration

In Collaboration mode, expect no more missed messages, messy project management, or poor coordination. Here, entire projects can be worked on in one place, making it far easier to coordinate among your team. 

Working together

Scans can be uploaded, comments can be left, and essential conversations can be had – you’ll even be able to share images with your co-workers for reference or inspiration. If you need to have something scanned, start a new project on Cloud, upload a photo for reference, send it to your teammate – they’ll be able to receive your task, respond to your message, and get right to work.

Save your work

With Collaboration, you won’t miss anything, either; a full history of your discussions and communication will stay right here. With all your data and previous work kept in one place, you can expect easy reference and excellent communication within your team.

Attach images

If you or your client has a visual of what they’d like to be scanned, an image can easily be attached into your project, too. Send the project and an invitation to your client or 3D service provider, and so begins the work. Artec Cloud is now the only platform you need for communication and collaboration to take place.

Import & Share

If you are on a Collaboration or Processing plan, then you’ll be able to upload and download 3D data and models. Supported files include Artec Studio data formats and popular 3D model formats such as OBJ, PLY, STL, and WRL.

Once uploaded, your data is available online immediately, and you’ll be able to view it right away.

If you’re working with one Collaboration account and one or numerous Viewer accounts, you’ll be able to share your work – and your colleagues will be able to view and comment.

Artec Cloud is an exceptional opportunity for work between educators and students, or 3D scanning specialists and new teams they train.

Processing

With Artec Cloud, you now have easy processing with the tools you need most, right on your browser. 

Key features

If you’ve gone all in with a full-access account, your processing options are similar to Artec Studio – choose between Manual and Autopilot. On a Processing account, you can process up to 20 projects per month – and since you don’t have to use up your computer memory, GPU, or CPU, you can process as many as you like at a time.

In manual mode, you’re presented with five stages of processing: Align, Prepare Scan, Make Model, Adjust Model, and Export.

The alignment tool is made with ease of use in mind: Choose between manual and auto to align multiple scans according to your needs or preferences.
With fewer actions and steps, there's no need to switch between panels or different groups of algorithms, making it that much easier for new users while saving time for all. When selecting Key Frames, type the number you want, or move the slide to the desired digit.
The Make Model process corresponds with Fusion in Artec Studio. Here, you can fuse your scans and create your 3D model before proceeding to the next stage.
The final step in processing is to adjust your model. Here, you can work on texturing, mesh simplification, and removing any unnecessary noise to clean up your final model before you’re ready to share, export, or send it.
Your processed 3D models can be exported with your chosen level of granularity in OBJ, STL, PLY, or VRML, while high-resolution screenshots take the form of JPG, PNG, or WEBP.

Manual editing

Also powering up the Processing plan is manual editing. Here, you’ll have the ability to utilize the most essential tools from Artec Studio, which you can use at any stage of Processing. 
 
Edit your data with the Eraser, Position, Transformation, Smoothen, and Mirror tools.

Remove unnecessary or unwanted data from your 3D scanning scene to create crisp, clean 3D models.
Reposition or center your objects as you require during your processing. The Position tool is useful for when you work with several objects, or need to center your objects within a coordinate system.
Within Artec Cloud, you are able to change the size of your scanned objects should you need them on the same scale as one another, or larger or smaller than they appear.
This tool is useful for when you need to smoothen scanning defects, which may at times occur when scanning tricky surfaces or hard-to-reach areas.
Particularly useful in reverse engineering, the Mirror tool lets you flip your scan data to create a mirrored version of the objects you have scanned.
