Artec Leo

Handheld Wireless 3D Scanner

what is the artec leo? 

The Artec Leo is a wireless, handheld, and AI-driven professional 3D scanner featuring an intuitive 5.5" touch panel for managing and interacting with scans. The Artec Leo's smart data capture and target-free tracking results in simple point and shoot functionality - it doesn't get easier than that.

Scan Anywhere, hassle-free

Take the Artec Leo anywhere you need, hassle-free. Easily scan objects with a cloud-connected, Wifi-enabled, and cable-free device - no computer or additional equipment necessary. Tight spaces and awkward angles are no match to Leo's interactive display that tilts for added flexibility. On screen color mapping helps you keep optimal distance for better data collection. Additionally, smart surface quality indicators alert you of areas that need more frames or coverage from different angles. 

2x higher resolution

The Artec Leo's HD mode offers AI-powered scanning technology for clean, highly-detailed scans. Hard to reach areas, difficult geometries, small elements, sharp edges, or often hard to scan surfaces can easily be captured and processed with minimal noise in raw data files.

Artec Leo HD Mode For Higher Resolution Scans

Artec Leo 3D scanning data can be accessed anywhere.

ACCESS Anywhere

Powered by Artec Studio and Artec Cloud integration enables the Leo to be accessed from any device anywhere. From your browser you can easily monitor the scanning process as well as manage projects and target clouds for seamless collaboration.
