Applications

If we could list all the application’s we would need a book. So here are a few.

Artec Studio 14
Work more Efficiently and Automatically, Achieve more, Save time !

Artec Studio 14

The continuous development in Artec Studio is due to customer feedback and technological advancements. This is why Artec continue to release a new Artec Studio Proffessional every year. Artec Studio 14 brings you the very best in 3D scanning and data processing software.

We are privileged as Artec Gold Partners to have been testing the latest 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 “AUTOPILOT” is a revolution in scan post processing.

Now Artec Studio 14 ramps up the speed and quality of producing your end results by intelligently looking at your scanned data as it processes you the perfect model.
