Artec Micro II

Right out of the box, Micro integrates with the industry-acclaimed Artec Studio for real-time digital capture. See your scans coming to life on the screen.

 

 

Artec Micro II 3D Scanner Benefits

Compact and ready to scan in seconds. Simply mount the object on the circular scanning platform, and you’re ready to scan.

Choose from a variety of smart scanning paths. Then watch in real time as your scan unfolds on the screen in jaw-dropping detail.

Only a minimum of training is needed with Micro. After a quick introduction, you will already be scanning on your own.

Fast Scanning Speed at 1 mln points / sec.

High accuracy does not have to be time consuming. Artec Micro can process up to one million points per second!

High Point Accuracy at 5 microns

Make extremely accurate 3D models such as small machine parts, jewelry and dentistry.

Safe to use Blue Light

The blue structured light technology used is absolutely safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.

Simple Operation

Fully automated desktop 3D scanner designed for 1-click capture of your small objects

Artec Micro II Features

Artec Micro Scan process

Reverse Engineering

Whether you have a small part to reproduce for which no blueprint exists, or you need to quickly redesign or simply modify an existing part and either mill or 3D print it, Artec Micro desktop 3D scanner can do the job. Accelerate your design, prototype, and production cycle by weeks and save thousands in the process.

Artec micro metrology

Quality Inspection / Metrology

Across a variety of industries, there is a growing need for ensuring that product quality levels are as high as possible. Delivering extremely-high-precision scans at up to 10 microns’ accuracy, not only can Micro “see” well below the human visibility threshold of 40 microns, but its 3D measurements are among the best in today’s cutting edge scanners, making it a perfect choice for inspection and much more.

Artec Micro dental

Dental

Artec Micro is ready for today’s dental practice, creating precise CAD/CAM-ready 3D scans for lab use and 3D printing. Ideal for scanning single teeth, entire arches, or complex impressions.

Export from Artec Studio to ExoCAD and other dental software. Perfect for making exact digital reproductions and archival of crowns and bridges, inlays and onlays, dentures, custom abutments, implants, and more.

Artec Micro heritage

Heritage, Art & Design

Artec Micro gives you the power to make highly-detailed 3D models of a multitude of small cultural objects in just minutes. From there, these models can be archived, or easily shared with researchers and others either locally or around the world, or sent to a 3D printer for printing in a variety of materials.

Artec micro 2 jewelry

Jewelry

Forget about the traditional method of calipers and tracing methods. In minutes, Artec Micro transforms intricate jewelry items into CAD/CAM data for design, modification, 3D printing, and casting. Saves hours of time in the design and production of complex and highly-detailed jewelry pieces such as rings, pendants, bracelets, cameos, and more.
