Artec 3D scanner reviews

Overall, we found the Artec Eva to be innovative, affordable for a scanner in its class and very easy to use, producing top quality results without having to be an expert in 3D scanning and telemetry. With all the wonderful features included in this package, we are glad to award the Artec Eva the top spot on our list of iReviews 2015 best 3D scanners under $50,000.

When you combine it with the Artec Studio software, you will get a very powerful solution useful for inventors, designers, engineers, or any other profession.

Artec Eva is the best handheld 3D scanner I’ve tested so far. It offers great geometric detail that’s suitable for a wide range of applications.

With the Space Spider you can make scans with a level of detail that you normally get from high-end, tripod-mounted scanners but with the added flexibility of a handheld scanner.

The Artec Eva has a lot to offer – it’s adept at scanning all kinds of textures, geometries, fabrics and even hair (hair!), but where its real value lies is in the Artec Studio software, a pricey, but powerful program that helps you to really perfect your scans.

The Artec Leo is an impressive machine that’s completely unencumbered by its predecessor’s cables and wires. Boasting a touchscreen and an intuitive user interface, the 3D scanner is easy to use and can run for up to six hours on one battery.

Developed to ISS specifications, the Artec Space Spider industrial handheld 3D scanner promises seamless quality and accuracy.

What really makes these devices stand out, however, is the Artec Studio software. This is what enables you to do all of your scanning work, work through alignment and registration and then clean up and export data — all via a single interface and a single product, with no need to purchase additional tools.

One of the strengths of the Artec Micro 3D scanner lies in its handling and the promise of being able to scan a part in one click. The Micro is presented as a fully automated fixed 3D scanner, allowing the scanning of parts up to 90 x 60 x 60 mm with an accuracy up to 10 microns and a minimum resolution of 29 microns.

With the Leo, the manufacturer Artec 3D offers the very first portable wireless model on the 3D scanner market, a technical feat that provides real added value compared to its competitors and that is based their years of experience in the development of 3D scanners.

Artec 3D has taken a big step forward with its first laser pulse 3D scanner. The Ray 3D scanner is an efficient and versatile piece of equipment that can scan large parts in less time, and is intended exclusively for professional users.

This 3D scanner is capable of producing 3D models with an amazing level of details of small and intricate objects.

The Artec Eva and its software suite is a very interesting product, tailored for 3D experts and other professional applications such as cultural heritage preservation, 3D body scanning, and even crime scene investigation.

The new Artec Studio 16 promises significant performance improvements and new features for inspection and reverse engineering. Additionally, Artec Studio 16 debuts the new Artec Cloud, an online platform that will allow users to process 3D scans in their browser and collaborate with other users.

With its NVIDIA processor, local scanning software, touchscreen display, Wi-Fi connectivity, and swappable battery, the Artec Leo is a true wireless scanner. The Leo also delivers on scan quality, with high accuracy (0.1mm) and fine resolution (0.2mm) thanks to Artec 3D’s AI-powered HD Mode.

After using the Artec Leo for a few weeks, I’m quite impressed. The device, although heavier than some other handheld units, makes up for that with the ability to scan very quickly.
