Artec Studio Professional software gives you the complete set of tools to scan with Artec 3D scanners and then export the results into one of several popular 3D formats (OBJ, PTX, STL, WRML, ASCII, AOP, CSV, PLY, XTYZRGB, 57) to work with a variety of 3D applications, such as Autodesk Maya, 3DMax, Autocad, Pixologic ZBrush, Blender, XSI, Mudbox, Picasoft-Mayka, Leios, Geomagic, Rapidform, Rhino3D and many others.
Scan whatever you want !
These are just a couple of things we have scanned and uploaded to display on Sketchfab.
There are a lot more to give you some ideas on how 3D scanning may help you.
Why not upload a few of your scans and 3D models with our link to a Free Sketchfab account.
If we could list all the application’s we would need a book. So here are a few.
Artec Studio 13
The Best Just Got Better: Work more Efficiently, Achieve more, Save time !
After a year of major development and in response to customer feedback, Artec Group have released the all new Artec Studio 13, the best ever 3D scanning and data processing software. Available in 2 versions: Professional for Artec 3D scanners and Ultimate with the added support for 3rd party sensors.
We have been privileged as Artec Gold Partners to have been beta testing this version for many months before its release. It is incredible what the Artec Team have done in making 3D scanning and post processing so easy, yet retaining crucial tools the expert is accustomed to.
Users of 3D scanning will be acquainted with the processes of scanning, multiple alignments, fusion, mesh simplification etc etc. This has been a relatively easy process to learn especially with previous versions of Artec Studio being focused on the users requirements, rather that taking a long laborious technical approach seen in some solutions.
So with ever more powerful computing power, why should you have to click that mouse more times than necessary to perform each task. Not anymore as Artec Studio 11 brought you “AUTOPILOT” and this was a revolution in scanning.
Now Artec Studio 13 brings you :-
Speed, 3D Intelligence and Ergonomics.
The details could be repeated here, however, following the link at the bottom of this page to the Artec site explains all.
Here we took AUTOPILOT for a test drive when a prospect said they assumed scanning a black camera would cause many issues, well it did not. Here are some images to illustrate what can be easily achieved by you !.

Amalgam are leading modelmakers, that work with all sorts of creative industries. Probably more well known for their large models for The Bristol Arts Trail with characters like Ardmans Wallace & Gromit.
Liverpool John Moores University – Face Lab, uses Artec Spider for forensic and archaeological research, installation art, as well as a new post-graduate MA program in Art Science.
Sir David Attenborough tells the story of the discovery of the largest animal to ever walk the Earth – and Artec Spider helped with the data capture.
See it all on the BBC website and BBC iPlayer.
Artec EVA with or without a turnable, enables you to scan complete bodies for medical, custom clothing, sport and artistic purposes to mention a few.
