Artec 3D Scanner

Optical 3D-Realtime-Scanner

A new dimension for 3D-Technology!

 High speed and accuracy

Thanks to an outstanding measuring speed of up to 1.5 million points per second, the Artec 3D scanner performs mearsurement acquisition dozen times faster than laser scanners, while providing high resolution (up to 0.2 mm) and high accuracy (up to 0.02 mm).

Scanning of moving objects

Since the Artec 3D Scanner is in fact a 3D camera, it can be used to scan dynamic object as well as stationary ones. This can be especially useful in medical applications and movie production where it is vital to capture a human body shape in motion.

New Opportunities

The number of uses for the Artec 3D Scanner is only limited by your imagination: architecture, medicine, prototyping, sport, education, manufacturing quality control, film industry, animation and computer graphics, fashion - is just a short list of applications in which our scanner will become your indispensable business partner.


Artec L


The Artec L™ 3D Scanner has the largest field and depth of view in Artec’s product line. This means that it can digitize large portions of an object in seconds. The scanner is best used to capture large objects such as the full human body, a car exterior, or a large statue.

Artec EVA

Artec Eva 3D scanner is the latest addition to Artec's the model line-up. This scanner is the ideal choice for those that need to receive a quick, textured and accurate scan. Eva doesn't require markers or calibration. It captures objects quickly in high resolution and vibrant color, which allows for almost unlimited applications.

Artec Spider

Artec Spider is a new 3D scanner designed specifically for CAD users and perfect for reverse engineering, product design, quality control and mass production. Together with Artec Studio software, it is a powerful, desktop tool for designers, engineers and inventors of every kind.
