Whether it’s breathtakingly mesmerizing special effects in movies, cutting-edge computer graphics in a super-realistic computer game or fabulous VR design, the world of entertainment wouldn’t be what it is today without theapplication of 3D technologies. Due to their high precision and ease of use, Artec scanners are Hollywood’s go-to tool for creating advanced special effects and transferring creative ideas to the silver screen.

Thanks to their advanced capturing technology, user-friendliness and portability, Artec’s 3D scanners make hard-to-scan surfaces a thing of the past and as a result, can digitize almost anything. Set your creative genius free with the ability to effortlessly capture organic shapes in almost any environment both indoors and outdoors and process the acquired 3D data onsite.
