Artec Leo

See your object projected in 3D directly on the HD display.

The first 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing, Artec Leo is able to provide the most intuitive workflow, making 3D scanning as easy as taking a video. As you scan your object, see the 3D replica being built in real time on Leo’s touch panel screen. Rotate the 3D model, check if you have captured all areas, and fill in any parts you may have missed.

Breakthrough 3D scanning speed

The 60 frames per second capture rate makes Artec Leo the fastest professional handheld 3D scanner on the market. Furthermore, with its large field of view, Artec Leo can 3D scan and process even large
objects and scenes fast and accurately. And for even greater precision, users can point the scanner closer to the object to pick up intricate detail, just as they would zoom in with a video camera.

The smartest 3D scanner on the market

Artec Leo contains state-of-the-art technologies, including the NVIDIA Tegra mobile platform, which is the scanner’s own internal computer, featuring FPGA, CPU and GPU processors for onboard processing of huge volumes of data and running Leo’s own 3D software; a built-in 9 DoF inertial system – accelerometer, gyro and compass – which allows the scanner to understand its position and environment; and a two-in one optical system designed to spec for the most exact texture to geometry mapping.

A fully mobile scanning experience

Thanks to the powerful embedded processor and the inbuilt battery, Artec Leo gives you true freedom in 3D scanning. With no need to connect to a computer or to plug into a mains power source, you can hold Leo in one hand and walk around freely, scanning your object unhampered by any wires or additional equipment. Purchase supplementary battery modules for unlimited 3D scanning on expeditions or in remote areas with no power supply.

Designed for usability

With a built-in battery, touch panel screen and wireless connectivity, Artec Leo takes handheld 3D scanning to the next level. Have complete freedom of movement when you scan, stream to a second device, if an additional display is needed, and upload your data at the touch of a button. Add to these features a carefully balanced, ergonomic design, devised to make 3D scanning in one hand easy and comfortable, and you have a next-generation professional 3D scanner, built with usability in mind.


Since the user is able to capture both expansive areas and fine detail, Artec Leo can scan a wide range of objects, from small mechanical parts to the human body, cars, boats or crime scenes. As with all Artec 3D scanners, the applications are wide and far-reaching, including industrial manufacture and quality control, healthcare, forensics, VR and e-commerce. Furthermore, Artec Leo’s new wireless functionality and internal processor allow for a wealth of integration possibilities, making it even easier to streamline your application, regardless of the industry.
