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 plug into a main 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.


    A large, professional-grade lens system

    Collects the maximum volume of data with pinpoint accuracy from right across the field of view, resulting in the most precise 3D model.

    • No need for targets: As with all Artec’s full-powered 3D scanners, Leo uses powerful hybrid geometry and texture tracking, meaning you can really just point at your object and shoot. No need to stick targets on it (and then remove them!).
    • Built-in SSD drive: Store 256 GB on the SSD drive. You can also extend the capacity, storing unlimited data on micro SD cards. Ideal for 3D scanning in the field!
    • 3D HDR: Scan tricky objects in HDR. For great capture of black and shiny areas, for example, normally difficult materials for 3D scanners to render.
    • A wealth of integration possibilities: The head of the scanner can be mounted to a robotic arm or a conveyor system for automated 3D scanning, or synced with multiple devices and used in multi 3D scanner installations.

      Product Features

      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 video to a second device via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, 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.

      Scan Large Objects Quicker
      With its large field of view, Artec Leo can capture huge volumes in minimum time.

      Capture Small Details
      Sweep over large areas fast, zoom in on detailed areas for increased precision.

      Enhanced Color Capture
      Using disruptive VCSEL light technology, Artec Leo excels in its ability to digitize hard-to-scan textures, including skin, and can scan well even in bright conditions. This technology also allows you to regulate the intensity of the flash to improve color capture even further.
      Simple Interface
      See your 3D model being built directly on the scanner itself. Check your model, change the settings or touch it up with some simple tools in the easy-to-use interface on the touchscreen. Wirelessly connect to a second screen, for ease of scanning or collaborative work.

      Built-in 9 DoF Intertial System
      The internal accelerometer, gyro, and compass mean that Artec Leo is the only handheld 3D scanner to be able to precisely pinpoint its position within its surroundings, even differentiating between horizontal and vertical surfaces, such as floors and walls.

      Unparalleled Textture to Geometry Mapping
      Features a unique optical system developed by Artec 3D, with the 3D camera and color camera combined and directed through the same lens. This technology provides the most advanced texture to geometry mapping.

      The smartest 3D scanner on the market
      Artec Leo contains state-of-the-art technologies, including the NVIDIA® Jetson™ platform, which is the scanner’s own internal computer, featuring Quad-core ARM® Cortex®-A57 MPCore CPU and NVIDIA Maxwell™ 1 TFLOPS GPU with 256 NVIDIA® CUDA® Cores; 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.
