Artec 3D, a developer and manufacturer of professional 3D hardware and software, announces the addition of Artec Micro, an automated, metrology-grade desktop 3D scanner, to its portfolio of 3D scanning solutions. Equipped with cutting-edge twin cameras, Artec Micro is the company’s most accurate 3D scanner to-date. Complete with blue LED lights that are synchronized with the scanner’s dual-axis rotation system, Artec Micro creates the perfect digital copy using minimal frames. With a single click, this fully-automated, industrial scanner creates a high-resolution color 3D scan with a point accuracy of up to 10 microns (0.4 thou), a tenth the size of a single grain of table salt.
Users of all skill levels can learn to operate the Micro in minutes; initiating a scan only takes a few steps. After an object is placed on the circular scanning platform, the operator simply chooses from a variety of smart scanning paths and clicks to begin. The scanning process can be viewed in real-time within Artec Studio.
The Artec Micro scan data is processed in Artec Studio, following the same workflow as Artec’s handheld scanners. Afterwards, the final model can be seamlessly exported to popular CAD/CAM software, including SOLIDWORKS, Control X, PolyWorks Inspector and Design X.
