Artec Studio 18. The power is in the software.

Transform your 3D scanner with industry-acclaimed software for professional 3D scanning and data processing. Easy 3D scanning. High-precision results.

Automatic processing

Speed up your scan-to-mesh workflow with Autopilot. With a few simple questions, the software will select the most effective 3D algorithms for the data at hand.

Powered by AI

Easily capture hard-to-reach areas, sharp edges, and small and thin elements in high-resolution 3D with Artec Studio’s AI neural engine.

Easy to learn

Artec Studio is designed to be intuitive and easy to use and learn, so all your attention can be focused on your work.

Introducing multi-resolution fusion

Combine different resolution scans in a single step with Artec Studio Smart Fusion. Now, you can capture the bigger picture with long-range Ray II, fill in any gaps with the handheld Leo, then create a model using the highest resolution data from each.

One software. Multiple workflows

  • Scanning & processing

    Capture any physical object with a 3D scanner, create an accurate and high-resolution 3D model.

  • Essential workflows

    Convert scan data to CAD for reverse engineering or inspection, or prep it for animation and CGI.

  • Integrations

    Export your data to any industry-leading reverse engineering, inspection, or 3D modeling software.

Updated yearly

The possibilities of what you can do with your scanner are constantly growing with annual updates to Artec Studio. You’re essentially upgrading to a new scanner every year, with game-changers such as slashing processing time and doubling the resolution of your Eva or Leo scanner with HD Mode.

3D scan black, shiny, or fine areas

Artec Studio analyzes the surface of your object and automatically adjusts the sensitivity of your scanner to pick up areas that are tricky for 3D scanning. As a result, even new users can digitize black, shiny objects, or hair with ease.


HD Mode

If you’re after the highest quality, we’ve got good news: Artec Studio operates in High-Definition Mode. Step up your scanning with Artec Leo and Eva to capture high-resolution HD data for ultra-sharp, clean, and detail-rich scans

Scan-to-CAD for reverse engineering

The right features can make scan-to-CAD for reverse engineering a breeze, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with Artec Studio. Expect CAD-editing tools for hybrid reverse engineering, high-speed alignment, boolean operations, automatic scan-to-CAD conversion, and advanced plane functionality for quick and excellent results. Export your scans and CAD objects to SOLIDWORKS in just one click.

Advanced scan-to-CAD tools

Speed up your workflow and save effort by performing reverse engineering operations right in Artec Studio. Modify your mesh through boolean operations, or automatically convert free-form meshes into solid CAD models in one click.

Integration with SOLIDWORKS

With such an easy shift to SOLIDWORKS, your process is more streamlined than ever. In Artec Studio, you're never more than one click away from export to SOLIDWORKS.

Advanced quality inspection. Streamlined.

When it comes to quality inspection, Artec Studio offers the tools you need for streamlining your pre-production, inline, and final inspection workflows: precise measurements, fast, accurate mesh-to-CAD alignment, and mesh-to-mesh or mesh-to-CAD deviation maps.

Mesh-to-CAD comparison

For a faster, more streamlined workflow, import STEP, IGES, or X_T CAD files and align your scan mesh to a CAD model without having to leave Artec Studio.

Control X integration

Create customized reports with Artec Studio by selecting the object or objects you need to inspect while Control X runs in the background. The reports most essential to your work will be generated for you.  

Picture-perfect CGI with photogrammetry + scan data

Create accurate, high-res, and picture-perfect 3D models ready for use in CGI, VR/AR, and animation. In Artec Studio, you can now combine your scan data and photogrammetry all in one place for both best-quality texture and highly accurate geometry.


Sync scans seamlessly with Artec Cloud

Synchronize your workflow with Artec Cloud, backing up and sharing Artec Studio projects in a single click, so you can work remotely, collaborate on a single unified platform, and utilize a revamped UI to establish a 3D scan processing HQ.

Rapid Scan 3D has been an Artec Ambassador and Gold Certified Reseller for over a decade.
