How Artec 3D is supporting Ukraine

New York Times writes about Artec

Recently the New York Times – one of the most widely read newspapers in the United States – published an article about Artec 3D and its handheld 3D scanners. Artec 3D’s founder and chairman, Artem Yukhin, told the correspondent about the company growth, about what is possible to achieve with Artec 3D scanners, and even shared the company’s plans for the future.

Artec Group makes three-dimensional imaging systems that are getting increasingly small and cheap. While industrial systems can run $50,000 or more and fill most of a room, their new model is handheld and runs $15,000. Over time, the company thinks it can get the price to $1,000 or less.

“The current customers are doctors making orthopedic equipment, architects modeling houses, and industrial companies like automakers,” says Artem Yukhin, Artec Group’s founder and chairman. “For sure, we can bring down the price and broaden the market.”
