Got a question about 3D scanners?

How can I choose the best 3D scanner for my tasks?

There are many aspects to consider when choosing a scanner for your task, such as the type of object/s that you need to scan, the required technical specifications (accuracy, resolution, texture, etc.), the price of the equipment, and many other factors. For this reason, we have created a guide that can help you better understand which 3D scanner is most suitable for what you need. Consult the guide.

Do you need to be a professional to use Artec 3D scanners?

No. We design our scanners so that any person, even with little to no 3D scanning experience, is capable of using them.

What software can I use with Artec 3D scanners?

When you buy an Artec scanner, you also need to purchase an Artec Studio software license, which allows you to process the data captured with a scanner into a final 3D model. The software is a single application which, once purchased, can be used across the entire spectrum of Artec scanners that you may be purchasing later.

Besides working in Artec Studio, the final model can be exported directly into Geomagic Design X and SOLIDWORKS, as well as uploaded to other reverse engineering and 3D modeling software such as Geomagic Control X, Autodesk, Blender, ZBrush, and many others.
