The Artec Micro II scans an object with a single-button operation, delivering ultra-high precision accuracy of up to 5 microns. It is well-suited for 3D visualization, product design, quality control, and metrology applications.

Scan Small Objects with Ease

Artec Micro II is 2x more accurate and scans larger objects compared to its predecessor.
Artec Micro II

The Artec Micro II is a compact metrology-grade desktop 3D scanner ready to scan in seconds. It’s a perfect solution for creating 3D digital replicas of small machine parts, jewelry, dentistry, and more.

Designed with minimal user involvement, simply mount the object on the scanning platform and you’re ready to scan. Watch in real-time as your scan unfolds on the computer screen in amazing detail. After minimal training with the Artec Micro, you will already be scanning on your own in under an hour.

Certified Repeatable Accuracy

This ISO-certified (ISO12836) desktop scanner is 2x more accurate as its predecessor, delivering 5 micron accuracy. 3D scanning the same item will produce the same results, with repeatability less than 2 microns each time.

Scan part size

Scan Larger Objects Up to 20 CM in Size

From tiny items that you can hold between two fingers up to objects that fit the palm of your hand (20 x 20 x 15 cm), the Artec Micro II requires minimal user involvement and absolutely no targets used for your scans.

Capturing fine details

Capturing Fine Details

As you can see from this digital 3D model, the Artec Micro II is impressive at capturing even the smallest print and the finest details.

Let the Scanner do all the work

The Artec Micro II uses a rotation system perfectly synchronized for swing and rotation. You don’t need any scan alignment aids (no need to add targets or markers).

Simply sit back, and watch the scanner at work.

Applications for Artec Micro II

Artec Micro II is the best 3D scanner for reverse engineering, quality control, inspection, dentistry, jewelry, design, and any other areas where you need a 3D scanner for small objects with ultra-high accuracy.


3D Inspection

There is a need to ensure manufactured product quality levels are as high as possible. With human visibility threshold being about 40 microns, defects are difficult to find just by the naked eye. The Artec Micro II delivers extremely-high-precision scans at up to 5-micron accuracy. That’s one of the many reasons why 3D inspection is a great choice for quality control.


Reverse Engineering

If you have a small part to reproduce into CAD or you need to quickly redesign an existing part to mill or 3D print it, Artec Micro II does the job. Accelerate your design, prototype, and production cycle by weeks and save thousands in the process.


Cultural Heritage

The Artec Micro II macro 3D scanner gives you the power to make highly-detailed 3D models of a multitude of small cultural objects in just minutes. The 3D models can be digitally archived, or they can easily become a digital museum to share with other researchers and others locally or around the world. Send the files a 3D printer for printing in a variety of materials for educational or learning purposes.



Artec Micro II is creates precise CAD/CAM-ready 3D scans for lab use and 3D printing. The 3D scanner is ideal for scanning single teeth, entire arches, or complex impressions. Easily export the files from Artec Studio to ExoCAD and other dental software. These scans are perfect for creating exact digital reproductions and digital archives of patients’ records.



The traditional method of calipers and tracing methods to translate physical prototypes into design files is challenging and inaccurate. Within minutes, Artec Micro II transforms intricate jewelry items into CAD/CAM data for design, modification, 3D printing, and casting. Save hours of time in the design and production of complex and highly-detailed jewelry pieces with accuracy and ease.
