Whether in the classroom, museum, or in the field, Artec 3D scanners and its 3D scanning software are used by science and education professionals around the world to discover, preserve, and explore historical artifacts, reconstruct crime scenes, study extinct animal species or entire civilizations, and more. Learn how portable 3D scanning solutions are being used in these fields to collect highly accurate, high-quality 3D scan data. 

Artec Studio

Versatile and reliable software, based on the integration of Artec Studio and Artec Cloud, it allows users to scan directly to the cloud, remotely control the scanner, and create their own functionality with a dedicated API and SDK. Artec Studio’s transformative features offer an accelerated workflow in which Leo speeds up the data acquisition process and transfers scan data to Artec Studio for mesh-to-CAD analysis, easy adaptation of primitives, and many other advanced operations. 

Leo does all the hard work: you just point and scan. Real-time scanning suggestions, hybrid "markerless" tracking system, smart scanning modes for faster data processing... these are just a few features that make Leo super easy to use. Just pick it up, point it at what you want to scan, and press the start button. Leo will take care of the rest.

Scan anywhere. No computer. No wires. Always connected to the cloud, Wi-Fi compatible and completely wireless Leo allows you to take large scanning capabilities wherever you need them without the need for a computer. When it comes to 3D scanning of medium and large objects, portability is key. You can walk around the object holding Leo as you would a video camera.

Artec Leo 2022 remains at a stable and optimal temperature throughout the scanning process, while Leo's calibration kit ensures the highest quality at every stage of the process. Up to 0.1 mm 3D point accuracy.

Artec Leo contains high technology, including the NVIDIA® JetsonTM mobile platform, a computer built into the scanner that features the following processors: Quad-core ARM® Cortex®-A57 MPCore CPU and NVIDIA MaxwellTM 1 TFLOPS GPU with 256 NVIDIA® CUDA® Cores. 

Powered by the most energy-efficient integrated NVIDIA Jetson TX2 processor and state-of-the-art algorithms, Leo is among the best wireless scanners in terms of performance, accuracy and durability. A reconstruction rate of 80 frames per second makes Artec Leo the fastest handheld 3D scanner on the market. And for even greater accuracy, the scanner can be moved closer to the object being scanned to detect, like a camera zoom, the most intricate details.

While scanning the object, the 3D preview is built in real time on the touch screen. Simply rotate the 3D model, check if all areas have been captured, and film any missing parts, making scans as easy as filming a video.

For perfect representation of geometry and color, with VCSEL's disruptive light technology, Leo excels in the ability to digitize hard-to-scan textures, adapt to lighting conditions, perform precise mapping, and adjust flash intensity to further improve color capture quality.

Based on the integration of Artec Studio and Artec Cloud, this versatile scanner is even more powerful. The software allows you to scan directly into the cloud, control the scanner remotely, and even create your own functionality with a dedicated API and SDK. Leo is also updated regularly with performance enhancements and stability improvements.

With a capture area of 160,000 cubic cm, it excels at capturing both medium-sized (20-50 cm) and large (50-200 cm) objects and surfaces. When combined with a powerful computer, it can also deal with very large objects (200 cm+) or even entire spaces, such as rooms or crime scenes.

A versatile and comprehensive scanning solution for a wide range of industries and applications. From manufacturing to healthcare, art to design, forensic investigations to e-commerce, Leo helps thousands of businesses and professionals get their work done faster, better and more efficiently.

With its powerful built-in processor and battery, Artec Leo offers total freedom in 3D scanning. Without the need to connect to a computer or power source, you can hold Leo in one hand and walk around freely, scanning the object without the hindrances of wires or additional equipment. Additional batteries can be purchased for unlimited 3D scans during expeditions to remote areas without electricity.

With a built-in battery, touch screen, and wireless connectivity, Artec Leo takes manual 3D scanning to a new level. In addition to complete freedom of movement during scans, it enables streaming video playback to a second screen via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, and allows data to be uploaded at the push of a button. These features, together with a carefully balanced ergonomic design engineered to make 3D scans easy and comfortable, configure the most advanced professional 3D scanner built with ease of use in mind.

The internal accelerometer, gyroscope and compass make Artec Leo the only handheld 3D scanner that can determine its exact position in comparison with its surroundings and allow it to detect the difference between horizontal and vertical surfaces, such as floors and walls.
