Artec 3D scanners are versatile, professional, and easy-to use portable scanners. They make it easy for you to capture professional scan data for any object.


The Undisputed Leader in 3D Scanning Versatility

Artec 3D provides incredibly versatile, professional 3D scanners. These scanners can quickly capture industrial parts, customize devices for healthcare applications, explore historical artifacts by recreating archeological finds, and are even the go-to technology choice for Hollywood’s visual effects. The Artec 3D scanners can be used alone or in combination with other Artec scanners for a customizable balance of speed, resolution, and file size.

Artec scanners are popular for reverse engineering but also have unique features that help to facilitate applications that are not often possible with other scanning technologies. Some offer LiDAR systems that are suitable for large objects like buildings and construction sites, while other ultra-high-resolution scanners can capture details as small as your fingerprints.

No matter your industry, application, or object size, the team at Hawk Ridge Systems can help you find the perfect 3D scanning solution.

Can I combine data from more than one 3D scanner?
Yes, data from any mix of Artec scanners can be combined in Artec Studio for maximum scanning efficiency and the ideal balance of detail vs file size.
What size range does Artec cover?
Artec has options like the Ray (using laser-based LiDAR technology) for very large objects and various options for small, detailed items like electrical connectors, and every size range in between. There is no hard size limit and Artec studio allows large bodies of data to be processed in segments so you can work with virtually unlimited amounts of data, regardless of your available computing power.
What kind of computer do I need?
Artec scanners do not require an especially high-performance computer, though investing more in certain components - like the GPU - can result in greatly reduced processing times. Artec has produced extensive documentation on this topic, which you can review if you have questions or concerns.
Can Artec scanners produce CAD files?
While there is no scanner that automatically outputs CAD data from a scan, Artec Studio includes tools to help you reproduce an item in CAD with minimal efforts, such as extracting cross-sectional sketches directly from the scan data and fitting basic CAD bodies like planes, cylinders, cones, and spheres, which can all be exported into any major CAD software in a variety of universal file formats. For more advanced scan-to-CAD functionality, consider a dedicated software like Geomagic.
Can Artec handheld scanners be used with positioning targets or stickers?
Yes. While one of the main draws of Artec’s handheld technology is the ability to scan without targets, it is compatible with various 3rd party photogrammetry kits which allow it to be used with targets for enhanced dimensional accuracy.
Are Artec 3D scanners laser-based?
The Artec Ray is laser-based (using LiDAR technology), but all other Artec scanners are based on structured light, or in the case of the Leo, a combination of structured light and an infrared laser. All Artec scanners are safe for your eyes.
What is structured light?
Structured light scanners use a flashing projector to repeatedly project a pattern onto surfaces. The shape, size, and distance of the object can be calculated based on the enlargement and distortion of that known pattern.
What is HD mode?
HD mode employs advanced machine learning algorithms to filter and process the raw scan data, resulting in significantly higher resolution (ability to capture detail) and noise reduction at the expense of increased computer power and processing time.
