Artec Studio 10 3D scanning software.
3D scanning solutions specialist Artec 3D has introduced two new products to its high-performance 3D technology line today with the cutting-edge 3D scanner, Space Spider and Artec Studio 10 software.
Building on the popular Spider 3D scanner, the Space Spider takes inspiration from the precision and easy of use needed in the space industry to produce a tool that can ensures unfaltering, high accuracy.
The scanner is also equipped with an intuitive cooling system which enables the scanner to reach optimal operating temperatures faster and maintain a constant temperature throughout the entire scanning process, reducing scanning time, ensuring there is no need to recalibrate the scanner and guaranteeing maximum accuracy.
Using blue LED lights, Space Spider can capture high resolution scans of a variety of objects of all sizes including sharp edges, moving parts and textured surfaces with an accuracy of up to 50 microns and resolution of up to 100 microns.
Artec’s latest 3D scanning software, Artec Studio 10 is also new to the market and offers optimised algorithms to ensure the highest speed, accuracy and ease of 3D data collection and editing.

New to Artec Studio 10, the user can keep total control of tracking even when the scanner is shaken or turned. Should the user make larger movements that may disrupt the scan, the continuous scanning algorithms are able to automatically adjust and pick up where the scan left off. In addition, Tracking Alignment Correction will identify tricky scanning areas and automatically realign scans during the scanning procedure itself, substantially reducing the time needed for post-processing the data.
The new version of Artec Studio also boasts mesh simplification up to 90 per cent faster and texture colour mapping five times faster than before. Texture editing has become easier and the user now has the ability to automatically remove targets when photogrammetry solutions are used.
Artec Studio 10 is available in two editions: Professional and Ultimate. The Professional edition is available as the usual one-time purchase or, for the first time, as a yearly subscription. Artec Studio 10 Ultimate is available by a yearly subscription only and the software is compatible with all Artec scanners as well as a variety of sensors including Kinect for Windows V2, Intel F200 (IVCAM) and ASUS Xtion.
Artec will be offering special upgrade terms for existing customers until August 1, 2015.
