3D scanning can take a lot of processing power from a computer. Aspects of the computer like the graphics card, RAM and CPU ability make a huge difference. There are things that a user can do on their machine to speed up results. Here are a few tips for faster processing time:


On your PC

  • Close all running programs in the background
  • Allow for 50GB of free space on the hard drive


Inside Artec Studio

  • Go to File > Settings > Performance and make sure that Multithreading is active and all available cores are used
  • Check that the scanner preset matches the scanner used in the scan
  • We recommend setting the fusion resolution equal to the max error of the scan.
