Leo does the heavy lifting. You just point & shoot
Interactive real-time scanning hints, hybrid target-free tracking system, smart scanning modes for faster data processing – just a few things that make our Leo the easiest 3D scanner to use. Just pick it up, point at whatever you want to scan, and hit that start button. Leo will take care of the rest.
Seamlessly pause and resume scanning whenever you need
When you’re ready to continue, Leo will pick up from where you left off, and add the new data to the existing project.
Distance color map to aid scanning
To help you keep the optimal distance to the object during scanning and thus capture more data in less time, Leo has visual aids in place. The surface you're scanning will be displayed in red on Leo's screen if you're holding the scanner too close to it, or blue if the distance is too great. And if it’s green? You're doing everything right.
Never miss a spot
Smart surface quality indicator on the display lets you see which areas have been captured completely, and which require additional attention, for example more frames or more coverage from different angles. It also gives you hints if you are scanning too fast or holding the scanner too far.
Smart data capture, no targets needed
Leo’s state-of-the-art hybrid geometry and texture tracking frees you up from using any additional equipment like targets or markers for stable scanning. You can just point it at the object and start scanning. It’s that easy.
Smart scanning, less processing
Powered by proprietary AI technology, Leo captures only the data you need – more intelligence for less processing time and cleanup work.
No computer. No cables.
The only wireless scanner in the industry
An all-new, cloud-connected, WiFi-enabled, and completely cable-free design lets you take Artec Leo’s immense scanning capabilities wherever you need them without ever needing a computer. Take full control with a tilting, interactive screen that displays a real-time replica with color-coded cues to help you capture perfect scans, every time.
Interactive 5.5" touch panel
With Leo’s intuitive UI, you can manage your device, scanning process, and scan data. The touch screen builds a real-time replica you can interact with while you scan, showing you areas that need attention, and helping you quickly get the best results.
Leo’s compact and ergonomic design already makes it possible to scan in tight spaces or from awkward angles. The interactive display also tilts to give you added flexibility and increased freedom of movement so you can use the scanner in many more ways.
100% cable-free scanning & data transfer
Leo’s unique features: a compact design, long-lasting battery, interactive touch screen, scan-to-cloud, Wi-Fi connectivity, and remote control combine to give you all the scanning and data transfer functionality you might require, right from the device itself without the need for additional devices, power or data cables.
Real time 3D model preview
Forget having to tether your device to a laptop to see scan data. Leo’s interactive touch screen displays a real-time replica as you scan, with visual guides that show you the quality of the data in different regions of your scan.
Powerful scanning. Unprecedented performance.
Powered by the most power-efficient embedded NVIDIA Jetson TX2 processor and state-of-the-art algorithms, Leo is like no other scanner when it comes to performance, accuracy, and durability.
With the fastest embedded AI supercomputer onboard, Leo gives you exceptional speed and power-efficiency.
Scan in sunlight
With Leo’s Class I Laser projector, a pattern invisible to the human eye is projected onto the surface of your object, so you can easily scan in sunlight.
For excellent geometry and color representation
Geometry and Color has never looked better
We’ve packed Leo with advanced tech to capture rich texture, adjust to lighting conditions, and perform precise texture-to-geometry mapping. Leo has a two-in-one optical system, an integrated supercomputer on a module, position sensors with 9 DoF, and VCSEL light technology that varies flash intensity.
Access Leo from anywhere.
Leo’s agility has just gone up a level. New remote control capabilities bring unprecedented flexibility to what is already a fully mobile device. Using just your browser, you can access Leo remotely, monitor the scanning process, control the scanner, and manage projects and target clouds.
Capture both fine details and larger parts with a single scanning solution
With a 160,000 cm-cubed capture zone, Leo is truly versatile when it comes to size. It excels at capturing both medium-sized (20-50 cm) and large (50-200 cm) objects and surfaces. However, if paired with a powerful computer, it can take on even very large objects (200+ cm) or even entire spaces, such as rooms or crime scenes.
Powered by Artec 3D’s AI neural engine, you'll get stunning, sharp 3D scans with a resolution of up to 0.2 mm.

How does it work
Depending on the job you’re doing and what data you need, you can now switch easily from basic SD scanning mode to the brand-new HD for an extra level of definition and quality with your scanner.
With the same scanner, greater customization for exactly what you need is at your fingertips. If you're short on time or don't need fine geometry, are scanning outdoors or with limited battery supply, SD Mode has you covered. With the new HD Mode, however, your Artec Eva or Leo can be instantly turned into a far more powerful and versatile 3D scanner, capturing fine lines and difficult corners, in less time and with excellent geometry.
How to get HD Mode?
To start using HD Mode, you need an Artec Eva or Leo scanner with an active Artec Studio 15 license, and a compatible PC.
Artec 3D AI Engine
The new HD Mode is powered by Artec AI, a proprietary state-of-the-art neural engine for your scanner. Trained on hundreds of thousands of carefully selected samples, the engine’s neural network detects familiar patterns, surface details, and shapes, and allows your 3D scanner to reconstruct a far higher number of polygons per frame, resulting in 3D data that’s denser and in higher quality.
Introducing HD data density
Look forward to scans with unparalleled degrees of resolution, coverage, and detail when you pick up your Eva or Leo 3D scanner and turn on HD reconstruction mode. You have the freedom to select the desired density of your HD scans from a standard 1X density all the way up to an astonishing 36X for Eva (~3 mln polygons per frame) and 64X for Leo (~5 mln polygons per frame).
Level-up your photogrammetry
Combine HD geometry with Photogrammetry
Take CGI photogrammetry to the next level using scan data from Artec Leo, with photos from your own camera. Bring it all together in Artec Studio in one seamless process to get stunning, life-like 3D models with perfect geometry and the texture quality you want.

With any plan in Artec Cloud, you’ll be able to view and comment on existing projects from any browser.
With easy viewing that you’d expect to see in any standard application or program, you’ll be able to browse through and find the project you’re looking for on any plan. The Collaboration and Processing account is required to organize folders
Within these folders, you’ll be able to view both previews and detailed information about your scans, and see who has access to these projects – it’s like any drive you’ve used before, but made with your scan data in mind.
Have you ever had a scan that was almost perfect – but ‘almost’ wasn’t good enough?
With Artec Cloud’s Hover feature, you’ll be able to single out which scan needs correction simply by mousing over the part in question and then leaving a comment with your instructions.
In Collaboration mode, expect no more missed messages, messy project management, or poor coordination. Here, entire projects can be worked on in one place, making it far easier to coordinate among your team.
Scans can be uploaded, comments can be left, and essential conversations can be had – you’ll even be able to share images with your co-workers for reference or inspiration. If you need to have something scanned, start a new project on Cloud, upload a photo for reference, send it to your teammate – they’ll be able to receive your task, respond to your message, and get right to work.
Save your work
With Collaboration, you won’t miss anything, either; a full history of your discussions and communication will stay right here. With all your data and previous work kept in one place, you can expect easy reference and excellent communication within your team.
If you or your client has a visual of what they’d like to be scanned, an image can easily be attached into your project, too. Send the project and an invitation to your client or 3D service provider, and so begins the work. Artec Cloud is now the only platform you need for communication and collaboration to take place.
Import & Share
If you are on a Collaboration or Processing plan, you’ll be able to upload and download 3D data and models. Supported files include Artec Studio data formats and popular 3D model formats such as OBJ, PLY, STL, and WRL. Uploaded data is available online immediately for viewing right away.
You can share your work with colleagues on Viewer accounts and they will be able to view and comment on it.
With Artec Cloud, you now have easy processing with the tools you need most, right on your browser.
If you’ve gone all in with a full-access account, your processing options are similar to Artec Studio – choose between Manual and Autopilot. On a Processing account, you can process up to 20 projects per month – and since you don’t have to use up your computer memory, GPU, or CPU, you can process as many as you like at a time.
In manual mode, you’re presented with five stages of processing: Align, Prepare Scan, Make Model, Adjust Model, and Export.
The alignment tool is made with ease of use in mind: Choose between manual and auto to align multiple scans according to your needs or preferences.
With fewer actions and steps, there's no need to switch between panels or different groups of algorithms, making it that much easier for new users while saving time for all. When selecting Key Frames, type the number you want, or move the slide to the desired digit.
The Make Model process corresponds with Fusion in Artec Studio. Here, you can fuse your scans and create your 3D model before proceeding to the next stage.
The final step in processing is to adjust your model. Here, you can work on texturing, mesh simplification, and removing any unnecessary noise to clean up your final model before you’re ready to share, export, or send it.
Your processed 3D models can be exported with your chosen level of granularity in OBJ, STL, PLY, or VRML, while high-resolution screenshots take the form of JPG, PNG, or WEBP.
Also powering up the Processing plan is manual editing. Here, you’ll have the ability to utilize the most essential tools from Artec Studio, which you can use at any stage of Processing.
Edit your data with the Eraser, Position, Transformation, Smoothen, and Mirror tools.
Remove unnecessary or unwanted data from your 3D scanning scene to create crisp, clean 3D models.
Reposition or center your objects as you require during your processing. The Position tool is useful for when you work with several objects, or need to center your objects within a coordinate system.
Within Artec Cloud, you are able to change the size of your scanned objects should you need them on the same scale as one another, or larger or smaller than they appear.
This tool is useful for when you need to smoothen scanning defects, which may at times occur when scanning tricky surfaces or hard-to-reach areas.
Particularly useful in reverse engineering, the Mirror tool lets you flip your scan data to create a mirrored version of the objects you have scanned.
HD is a scanning mode powered by artificial intelligence algorithms that allows you to create sharper, cleaner, and far more detailed 3D models with a resolution 2X higher than the original SD data. In HD Mode, a resolution of up to 0.2 mm can be achieved, and your Eva can capture much smaller and thinner elements, hard-to-reach areas, black and shiny surfaces and other parts that were difficult or impossible to capture before. HD Mode is available for Leo and Eva scanners running Artec Studio 15.1 or higher.
Visit here for more information about HD Mode.
Yes! Eva uses white structured light technology, which is absolutely safe for scanning any living creature. To get the best results, make sure that the person or animal holds their pose for the entire scanning process to avoid any artifacts or noise on the final model. Animals, fidgety as they tend to be, are often very tricky to capture so we recommend scanning them while they sleep.

No. Eva requires neither targets nor calibration to get started. The scanner uses powerful hybrid geometry and texture tracking to capture the objects in 3D — even those with minimal features. Eva collects two sets of data by which to track and perform processing, which results in much easier, faster, and smoother 3D scanning, as well as faster 3D data processing in comparison to scanners that require targets for scanning.
Datum alignment for scan-to-CAD
As a rule of metrology, even when your scan is an impeccable digital twin of a part or object, if it isn’t properly aligned with its corresponding CAD reference model, any variances that show up can be unreliable due to misalignment.
With Datum alignment, all it takes is a few clicks to fully align your meshes and CAD models using key geometric features.
Enhanced targets support for metrology
Gain better manual control over reference objects for data registration such as circular targets, spheres, or checkerboards, if your scanning workflow requires it.
See them in 3D as part of your workspace, choose spheres or circular targets for registration, measure the distance between them, identify which are out of place or missing, and exclude them from registration. In addition, you can now import and choose multiple reference target clouds into the workspace.
Convert complex organic shapes into solid CAD models in one click with the new Auto Surface feature. Facilitate reverse engineering of complex geometries and create referential CAD surfaces for in-depth RE workflows in third-party CAD software.
Modify your models with CAD entities and meshes, using industry-standard boolean operations: Union, Subtract, and Intersect. Build molds, create complex shapes, fine-tune meshes to match the design intent, and more.
Independent CAD shapes
Easily create, resize, and reposition primitive solid shapes into any part of your mesh, with no need to specify the required area for fitting. Just select the primitive you want to add, including the new cube shape (box), and that’s it.
Artec Studio now keeps a history of the conditions and relations specified for each primitive, so you can save, edit, and refit them anytime – even outside the Construct panel. In addition, it allows you to base new constraints on the ones you imposed in previous sessions.
Mesh splitting for 3D printing
For AM professionals, preparing meshes for 3D printing is easier than ever thanks to the new Split by plane feature. This allows you to quickly and precisely break your mesh into manageable chunks, using a pre-fitted plane.
Improved Segment Brush
You can now change the size of the selected region dynamically with the Segmentation sensitivity slider. Simply mark the area you’d like to construct the CAD primitive in, and adjust the degree of expansion area with the slider.
Erase via Object selection
Your mesh editing process is now even faster thanks to the new Eraser selection mode “Object selection.” Instantly remove any unwanted elements from the scene by simply selecting separate parts of the mesh and removing them.
New Hole Filling tool
An updated Hole Filling algorithm lets you create smooth patches over any missing areas on a model. You can now choose between Flat and Smooth types of hole filling to restore the missing surfaces more precisely.
Perfect your 3D model texture for CGI
Working with photos is now even better thanks to improvements in our photo-texturing algorithm. You can now easily preview photos taken for the texture via the new photo-viewing mode and see how they fit into the texture.
Register photos in Artec Studio
Remove photos with any defects, overexposure, or ones that are poorly lit or taken at a suboptimal angle and see how they impact your final texture. With the new algorithm, images are sorted into groups: by size, camera type, or focal distance, allowing you to register them separately, and use all of them for texturing.
3D scan black, shiny, or fine areas
Artec Studio analyzes the surface of your object and automatically adjusts the sensitivity of your scanner to pick up areas that are tricky for 3D scanning. As a result, even new users can digitize black, shiny objects, or hair with ease.
Speed up your workflow by performing reverse engineering operations right in Artec Studio. A full range of primitives including freeform fitting, will have you zooming along from fitting to constraining to CAD export.
Integration with SOLIDWORKS
With such an easy shift to SOLIDWORKS, your process is more streamlined than ever. In Artec Studio 16, you're never more than one click away from export to SOLIDWORKS.
Photogrammetry + scan data
Scan data and photogrammetry can now be combined in Artec Studio, making it possible to create accurate, high-res, and picture-perfect 3D models ready for use in CGI, VR/AR, and animation.
For a faster, more streamlined workflow, import STEP, IGES, or X_T CAD files and align your scan mesh to a CAD model without having to leave Artec Studio.
