This is one of the most precise handheld 3D scanners available on the market. Designed specifically for close-up scanning, the resolution of 0.1mm is a great result for a handheld 3D scanner. As long as you can keep the scanner between 0.2m-0.3m from the object, you’ll have great results.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great scan resolution
The 0.1mm resolution is the best available for a handheld 3D scanner. This scanner combines the freedom and versatility of a handheld scanner with the accuracy of a stationary unit.
Pro Companion software is great
Artec Studio, the official software for this scanner, is versatile, user friendly, and very well documented. Every aspect of the software is described well on the official documentation. It’s also powerful and intuitive, making it quite worth the hefty price.
This device is quite expensive, making it a purely industrial product, as only medium or large companies are able to afford it.
Con Scanning distance is quite limited
In order to get maximum precision, you need to make sure the scanner stays within the 0.2 m - 0.3 m range distance from the target object. This 0.1 m margin is low for a handheld device and can be an issue, especially since it takes several minutes to complete a scan.
Con Official software requires an extra investment
As with other Artec scanners, purchasing an Artec Studio annual license costs $400.
