The Artec 3D scanner is a hand-operated scanner manufactured by Artec Group. The Artec scanner is suited for scanning medium-sized (dormant or moving) objects without the need of reference targets. Depending on the configuration, a small, medium or large measuring range is possible. The flexible usable scanner registers objects in real time. Artec Studio software, which is used in combination with Artec 3D scanners, creates a realistic, colored 3D model based on the single measurements.
