Integration of X-Ray mode, 3D Radar mode, new high-power algorithms, and Global Registration upgrades make handling large, highly detailed 3D data quicker and easier
Santa Clara, Calif., September 10, 2018 – Artec 3D, a world-renowned developer and manufacturer of professional 3D hardware and software, today unveils the high-tech and streamlined Artec Studio 13 software. New high-powered algorithms allow users to produce, edit and process 3D data with ease, no matter an object’s size, nor resolution. Even a 500 million polygon data-set is no challenge for the software. Global registration, a tool needed for the creation of every model, can successfully assemble up to 250 percent more object types, even when scanning conditions were subpar. In addition, the tool is now up to double the speed and fine registration is up to 50 times faster, so that users can quickly jump to the next stage in data processing.
This latest software release also incorporates a new X-ray Mode, a first-of-its-kind feature that provides users the ability to examine raw scan data for potential problem areas, prior to entering the processing stage. The new X-ray Mode makes raw scan data semi-transparent and deletes all the noise around a scanned object, showing users the data that they want to see. As a result, it’s much easier to judge the quality of scan data right after capture, without the need to process it first. Users can immediately identify if areas of an object were missed, or if there were holes, misalignments or other issues that occurred during the scanning process. This makes scanning even the most complex objects a simple task.
“The fact that Artec Studio is now able to flawlessly handle data sets that allow an individual to capture and process large objects without limitation and in high resolution is incredible,” said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. “From X-Ray Mode to new algorithms to an advanced Global Registration tool, all the new features that are now available make working with scans of a large or highly detailed object much more streamlined and less time-intensive, no matter a user’s skill level. It’s the perfect complement to unleash the potential of our full line of 3D scanners.”

Artec Studio 13 includes smart 3D rendering to automatically detect the user’s computer specs. If the user’s computer lacks in power, smart 3D rendering will adjust accordingly to use less RAM, yet still provide the smoothest possible user experience when working with large volumes of data. Additionally, users can easily make DXF sections of any 3D model and can export even open contours to CAD software such as Design X or SOLIDWORKS. Artec Studio 13 supports Artec’s full suite of long-range and handheld 3D scanners, including the latest Artec Ray and Artec Leo.
