Artec Group, a manufacturer of professional 3D software and hardware, has launched the Artec Scanning Software Development Kit (SDK). This platform allows users to tailor existing software to support projects or develop new software. This offering will expand the use and capabilities of Artec’s handheld 3D scanners within the medical, industrial, engineering and 3D printing industries, the company states.
Artec offers two professional 3D handheld scanners: the Eva and Spider. Both scanners can capture a broad range of objects, with high-resolution and full color scanning.
With the SDK, users can access individual frames, including 3D meshes and texture. Frames can also be aligned to create a textured 3D model.
“The excellent quality and portability of our 3D scanners make them the perfect fit for a variety of industries from medical to entertainment,” said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec Group. “This means that our scanners are called upon to work with a lot of different industry specific tasks, which requires all types of software. The Artec Scanning SDK is our way of ensuring that our scanners will be compatible with almost any software a user may currently have in place.”
