3D Scanning Workflows

3 different ways Artec Studio can make a 3D model of your object

Artec workflow 3


For highly accurate results in a few easy, automated steps.

Scan your object and then enter Autopilot to process all your data automatically.

Perfect for beginners to achieve professional, high precision results. A great time saver for advanced users.

Artec Workflow 2

Manual Mode

For highly accurate results, with full control and flexibility during the process.

Scan your object and choose the post processing settings yourself.

Advanced users have a full range of powerful tools to manipulate their 3D data exactly as they like.

Artec workflow 1

Build as you scan

For instant results, with no post-processing

Build your 3D model as you scan. Using Real-Time Fusion scanning mode, move the scanner around the object and see your model developing as you go.

Ideal for making 3D copies of simple objects, such as the human body, or for getting a quick preview.
