Artec Studio

Easy scanning.
No compromise precision.

Easy 3D scanning in Artec Studio

Powerful 3D imaging software is critical to a smooth scanning experience. It quite literally controls how the scanner captures data and with what level of precision. Artec Studio features the most advanced 3D data algorithms which give you high precision in your results, while at the same time make 3D scanning intuitive and user-friendly.

It’s very simple to scan in Artec Studio thanks to its 3D Radar mode. Artec Studio will show you that you are holding the scanner at the optimal distance by visualizing the real-time 3D data in green. Move the scanner a little too close and the image will turn red, a little too far back and it will turn blue. Keep the data capture green to be sure you are getting the best results.

Powerful algorithms for fast, intuitive scanning

  • No need to prepare your object in advance, just point the 3D scanner and shoot.
  • Best in class texture and geometry tracking algorithms for the quickest and smoothest scanning experience.
  • Auto-continue allows you to stop scanning and then instantly pick up where you left off.
  • Intuitive algorithms for scanning black, shiny, or fine objects with ease.
  • Smart Base Removal automatically eliminates the base on which your object is standing, even if that surface is curved, and deletes everything below this section. This leaves you with just the data you need, without having to edit it out.

Even new users can 3D scan black, shiny or fine areas

Artec Studio 15 analyzes the surface of your object and automatically adjusts the sensitivity of your scanner to pick up even tricky areas for 3D scanning. As a result, even new users can digitize black, shiny objects or hair with ease!

Scan on a Mac

In addition to installing Artec Studio via Bootcamp, Mac users can also make high quality, accurate scans using our free ScanApp standalone application. Both new and experienced users will appreciate the easy way to scan, as well as the clean, ergonomic interface. Users can perform basic model processing in ScanApp and then export the results for more extensive processing in Artec Studio on a Windows PC or their Mac via Bootcamp.

Eva & Leo: astounding high-resolution scans like never before


Stunning high resolution up to 0.2 mm

Unprecedented levels of resolution with every scan

Whether you’re capturing an intricate machine part or a meters-long section of an ancient Roman castle, high resolution is key. But not at the expense of accuracy. Thanks to HD Mode’s enhanced AI neural network, all your data will have both, effortlessly delivering production-ready results.


Distinctly clean data

Wicked-smart noise filtration for faster processing

Even for an expert user, time spent cleaning up your raw data can tap the brakes on your workflow. But now, Artec Studio’s AI engine transparently optimizes your data, filtering out unwanted data points while preserving accuracy. So when it’s time to process your scan, there will be nothing extra to slow you down.


Deep geometry capture

Easily scan those hard-to-reach surfaces

Some deeply-recessed parts and geometries, especially from an angle, can be challenging to fully capture. In the end, these often have to be modeled manually. That was then. Now with AI-enhanced coverage, these much deeper surfaces are now captured from the first scan and reconstructed in lifelike, geometry rich detail.


Preserve sharp edges

Capture hairline edges and shapes

Capturing sharp edges is essential when scanning myriad objects for aerospace, reverse engineering, quality inspection, etc. When you need precision down to the submillimeter, there’s no place for «almost exact.» Now with HD Mode’s AI algorithms, all those edges and surfaces are captured in high definition and reconstructed in your final scan.

All New User Experience. From Raw Data to Finished 3D Model in Minimum Steps

Faster, simpler data processing
Intuitive data organization
Easily combine data from multiple scanners

Group 3D data into folders and process it as one unit

Artec Studio 15 unveils a groundbreaking way of working with your scans. Creating 3D models won't merely be faster and better organized, but also that much easier to manage — and especially when you're scanning large objects. Now you no longer need to work with each separate scan individually. Your scans are grouped together and you process them as you would one single scan. All changes you make to a group are instantly propagated across all the scans within.

Auto-group for Eva, Space Spider and Leo data capture

When using Eva or Space Spider, press Start Scan, and Artec Studio will automatically group all captured data, even after auto-tracking recovery.

With Leo data, all scans will be grouped together by default on import. Any scans created separately, by using the Add New Scan button on Leo, will be grouped separately.

Custom create groups for easy data management

You can drop-down-menu group or drag and drop your scans into custom folders, and also group your scans according to specific sections of the object. You can even create nested groups, making your workflow all the more organized and efficient.

Easily align multiple scans in one click

No need to align scans individually. Now you can align groups of scans together. If needed, you can always ungroup in order to work with individual scans.

Automatically group scan data and primitives

Whenever you fit a primitive to a 3D model, a new group is created. This makes it a piece of cake to find everything in one place. Even if you create dozens of primitives, all your data stays well organized, right where you need it. And anytime you've added in primitives to multiple fusions in your workspace, each and every primitive will visually correspond to its respective fusion.

Precise Positioning and Groups

Precisely position a set of grouped data. Add new data to this group and it will be automatically positioned accordingly.


Vivid texture for CGI and beyond


Enhanced color reproduction

Effortlessly create correctly-textured models

With this step-saving feature, any unwanted colors from the background behind the object are automatically suppressed, without having to manually predefine the area of application. Simply adjust the suppression level slider and go. Artec Studio's refined algorithm ingeniously searches across multiple scans for the correct color to substitute. This feature works very much like Glare Reduction, and is the next leap towards achieving perfect textures.

Model-to-model texture transfer

Instantly clone any texture over to your other models

In earlier versions, whenever you wanted to apply texture to your model, you had to select specific scans for indicating the texture to be used.

Now, as long as you have an existing textured model, you can select that instead of your scans, and its texture will then be transferred right over to your new model. This can be a real time saver, especially when you’ve invested loads of time editing the texture for a model, for example by using Artec Studio’s Texture Healing Brush, or using advanced tools in 3D modeling software or graphics editors. Now you can simply clone that brilliant texture over to your other models, just like that.




Unless your 3D scans are accurate, little else matters. That’s why we’ve made the best even better, and these accuracy-honing features and updates put you on the easiest path to pristine scans and models.

Auto temperature stabilizer for Eva

Easy-to-achieve maximum accuracy

An Eva-specific feature that makes it even easier to achieve the scanner’s maximum accuracy throughout your entire scanning session. The effects of the temperature stabilizer are particularly marked when scanning large objects, as error typically accumulates over distance. With the push of a button, after a brief warm-up period, Artec Studio starts detecting Eva’s temperature and makes adjustments in the scanning algorithm as needed. Eva will then maintain an optimal scanning temperature as long as it’s plugged in, ensuring the most precise data capture.

Next-generation registration

Expert results faster and easier across all registrations

Every registration type has been evolved for Eva and Space Spider in Artec Studio 15, and that means Rough, Fine, and Global, with the primary improvement being more steadfast texture registration, particularly with scans that have less-than-ideal textures.

As well, users can expect to see upgraded texture registration accuracy for scans of larger objects (>2 meters). Results are noticeable even at low key frame ratio settings.

Additionally, Global Registration now has an optional setting for geometry-rich surfaces with little variation in texture. Select it, and results are dramatically improved for these types of objects.

Boosted Autopilot for Leo

The King of the Jungle has found an even sharper set of claws

Highly enhanced thanks to the specific feedback we received from our Leo user base, the new Leo Autopilot delivers unwavering results better than ever. We’ve also optimized multiple features including Registration, Outlier Removal, Fusion Resolution, and Small Object Filter.


Once you get used to these genius features, there’s no turning back. Whether you’re a Micro user jazzed up about the gorgeous high-resolution scans with minimal numbers of frames, or you’re scanning with one of our handheld scanners and saving gallons of time and effort with the new automatic Scan Groups and Scan Size Optimizer features, there’s something here for everyone!

Smart Scanning for Micro

Create 3D models in half the time using Artec Micro’s new Smart Scanning mode.

Now Micro captures the optimal quantity of surfaces and data in the least amount of frames with every object you scan, resulting in fully-automatic, ultra-high-resolution scans that are lean and extremely accurate. Using new, ground-breaking algorithms, Artec Studio calculates the most effective scanning path for your object, ensuring that its every single angle will be covered.

This smart mode now makes it extremely easy to scan even the most complex objects. And since only the necessary frames will be captured, processing time is slashed and memory usage reduced. As a result, the workflow from start to finish is now up to 100% faster.

Scan Size Optimizer

Leaner scan sizes = easier processing = effortless time savings

A hot feature to make working with your scans that much more systematic, now you have the choice of fine-tuning the number of frames per scan. Once that number is reached, a new scan is automatically launched. The process consistently repeats as long as you keep scanning, with all new scans being auto-aligned and grouped together. And when it comes to data processing, smaller scan sizes make it easier to isolate any imperfections and quickly weed them out. Used in conjunction with the new Groups feature, all of your smaller scans will be gathered together into the same, easy-to-manage group.

30% more effective Auto-align and at 2X the speed

Auto-align now boasts new, more powerful algorithms

An enhanced feature for users of Eva, Space Spider, and Leo. More accurate and easy to use, with razor-sharp algorithms that deliver spot-on alignments 30% more effectively and up to 2X faster than before.

Autopilot now even more powerful

Taking you up to new heights of productivity

As a result of the new and advanced Auto-align, Autopilot now is even more reliable for all Artec handheld scanners, which is super helpful, especially for less experienced users.


Because who doesn’t want to scan faster? We know that when it comes to 3D scanning, it’s just one part of your digital capture workflow. The sooner you can capture your object or area and turn it into a stunningly-precise 3D model, the easier your project will be.

2–4 X faster Artec Ray scan import

Load scans faster

Users of Artec Ray can look forward to significantly accelerated import speeds. This is particularly useful when importing scans of massive objects and environments such as airplanes, factory floors, and large-scale architecture.

Faster project loading

Each scan loads via a dedicated CPU core

Open your projects much more quickly than before, expedient for multi-scan projects. When opening a project with several scans, now each scan will be imported by a dedicated CPU core, whereas in the past all cores were loading just one scan. The result? For example, a project with 10 scans will open 10 times faster on a PC with a 10-core CPU.



Our developers are constantly burning the midnight oil in their quest to come up with whip-smart algorithms to make Artec Studio easier and more aerodynamic than ever. Once you dive in and give these clever features a try, you’ll know exactly what we mean.

Superior hole-filling

Mends holes more naturally

Now with a heightened algorithm, this feature, available via the Tools tab, delivers more organic hole filling with improved loops.

Improved Lasso

Even cowboys never did it so good

One of the most highly-used tools in the menu, Lasso’s power is without question, and now it’s just gotten that much easier to wield. Whether you want to make perfectly straight lines of any length or simply draw curved lines by hand, the choice is yours.

Size-sensitive Max Error mode

Enhanced feature for flagging problem areas

This much-loved feature that color-codes frames with max errors has been expanded for working with objects of all shapes and sizes. Now when scanning larger objects, the acceptable error rate is increased in accordance with the object’s magnitude.



We’ve methodically fine-tuned the ergonomics of Artec Studio so scanning pros can achieve dazzling levels of productivity, while complete beginners will find themselves ramping up from zero to competent in mere hours.

In only a few clicks, you can customize and streamline your Artec Studio workspace for maximum time saving and effortless ease of use.

Visually redesigned workspace

Kick your workflow up to next-level velocity and comfort

With a new ergonomic and spacious view, based on the best in UX design and oodles of user feedback, welcome to a more intuitive and efficient Artec Studio! Updated buttons and icons in one visual-oriented, easier to read, enhanced interface.

Especially for users with tight deadlines and demanding projects, every extra effort saved is an incremental gain that frees up your workflow and keeps you focused on what matters most.

Swipe selection

Just one click selects that much more

Saves you from having to click every time you want to select an object, making it simple and fast to select or deselect multiple items in only one swipe. With the average user clicking dozens if not hundreds of times per project, this little feature is worth its weight in gold.

Convenient mass rename

Rename droves of scans in seconds

A real time-saver for larger projects with significant numbers of scans. Artec Studio 15 lets you easily rename a range of scans in a series to distinguish them. It also lets you search for user-specified keywords in scan names and then rename your scans in custom ways.


Since a cleaner workspace = a faster workspace

Hide the columns that you don't want to see, and configure the ones you're working with for a faster and more visually-accessible experience.

Easy-access workspace

A wealth of scan info on demand

Now you can customize your scans summary to give you all the info you need in one quick glance. In only a few clicks, via drag and drop selection, it's easy for you to sort your list according to scanner type, texture frames, etc.

New color picker

Easy real-time color selection

When it comes to changing the color of your scans, one look is usually all it takes, especially when it’s in real time. This handy upgrade lets you keep the color picker open during color selection to see exactly how your scan looks in that color. Now you’re free to select any color on the screen and pick that, including the color of any other scan.

In-depth & advanced information

Every key scan detail at your fingertips

No more digging for your scan details when you need them. Now with just a click of the mouse, you can add new kinds of columns that display all the crucial properties of your selected scan, from polygons and scanner type to frames, texture frames, failed frames, size, and more. And for particular, type-sensitive items, you can toggle an information summary at the bottom of your workspace.


See only the scans you want, when you want

Ideal for projects with larger numbers of scans, now you can hide the items you don't need right now, giving you a streamlined workspace that works with you and never slows you down. Filter and display everything from all your objects, scans, models, CAD objects, and point clouds.
