Artec Studio (20.09.2021) 


New Features:

Reverse Engineering
• More CAD primitives – Torus and Freeform
• Export primitives to SolidWorks without plug-ins
• Additional tool to easily select an entire ‘Segment’ of an object for construction
• Option to ‘Scale to bounding box’ to get a contour regardless of the size of the object

HD Mode
• AI-powered HD mode improvements for faster and sharper reconstruction
• Record raw HD data of scans and use it for reconstruction anytime
• Configure HD reconstruction parameters in the tools panel

Quality Inspection
• Inspect, compare models and generate reports in Control X
• CAD constraints
• Measure thickness easily and more precisely now
• Use already constructed planes as reference for point-to-plane measurements
• Faster scan-to-CAD alignment

Photo texture and CGI
• Add texture to models with photographs using the new Photo Registration algorithm
• Transparent mode for clear visualization of back-faces

Performance and Workflow
• Advanced new data format – A3D. Convert your old SPROJ projects to A3D easily
• Smart memory management for faster and improved performance
• Faster data loading implemented through selective RAM usage and pre-load
• Auto-save all your actions by default
• Use the new global registration modes for registering scans individually, or separately, or combined.
• Export models separately, without having to merge them
• Add and save annotations on screenshots
• Maximize RAM usage by only storing a specified number last actions in History



• HD reconstruction speed is 2X faster than in Artec Studio 15
• Mesh to CAD align - 8X faster than in Artec Studio 15
• Surface distance map speed 70% faster than in Artec Studio 15
• Leo HD project is 20% less comparing with Artec Studio 15
• Improved workspace design and object highlighting features
• Various other bug fixes and UI improvements

Resolved Issues:

• Artec Studio 15 crashes importing Leo project

Known issues:
• Network drives are not supported (It is not possible to save or open the projects located on network drives)
• RAM is not released after the first conversion from old to new data format, or after a large project is recovered after a failure
• Decreased FPS scanning with Artec Eva/ Artec (Space) Spider on specific CPUs
• Application crashes after a long standby mode
• 3D models render in 2D after GPU driver update, for some ADM GPU cards
• Swipe function does not work for the Lock column
• Projects are corrupted if Artec Studio is forcibly closed, or crashes during the compaction process
