What is the Artec Micro?
The Cutting Edge of Desktop 3D Scanning.
Artec Micro brings the latest in scanning technology to your desktop. Its advanced twin cameras and blue LED lights are perfectly synchronized with Micro’s dual-axis rotation system (swing & rotation) to create the ultimate digital copy of your object with a minimum of frames captured.
Powerful robust software
Right out of the box, Micro integrates with the industry-acclaimed Artec Studio for real-time digital capture. See your scans coming to life on the screen. After scanning, Artec Studio makes it easy for you to process your data. Simply follow the same series of steps as you would with our handheld scanners, and then export the final 3D model to software such as SOLIDWORKS, PolyWorks Inspector, Control X and Design X.

Scanning, CMM, and Metrology possibilities are limitless
Whether you have a small part to reproduce for which no blueprint exists, or you need to quickly redesign or simply modify an existing part and either mill or 3D print it, Artec Micro desktop 3D scanner can do the job. Accelerate your design, prototype, and production cycle by weeks and save thousands in the process.
Quality Inspection / Metrology
Across a variety of industries, there is a growing need for ensuring that product quality levels are as high as possible. Delivering extremely-high-precision scans at up to 10 microns’ accuracy, not only can Micro “see” well below the human visibility threshold of 40 microns, but its 3D measurements are among the best in today’s cutting edge scanners, making it a perfect choice for inspection and much more.
Artec Micro is ready for today’s dental practice, creating precise CAD/CAM-ready 3D scans for lab use and 3D printing. Ideal for scanning single teeth, entire arches, or complex impressions.
Export from Artec Studio to ExoCAD and other dental software. Perfect for making exact digital reproductions and archival of crowns and bridges, inlays and onlays, dentures, custom abutments, implants, and more.
Heritage, Art & Design
Artec Micro gives you the power to make highly-detailed 3D models of a multitude of small cultural objects in just minutes. From there, these models can be archived, or easily shared with researchers and others either locally or around the world, or sent to a 3D printer for printing in a variety of materials.
Forget about the traditional method of calipers and tracing methods. In minutes, Artec Micro transforms intricate jewelry items into CAD/CAM data for design, modification, 3D printing, and casting. Saves hours of time in the design and production of complex and highly-detailed jewelry pieces such as rings, pendants, bracelets, cameos, and more.
