Artec Space Spider

The Artec Space Spider is a hand-held 3D scanner designed specifically for CAD users and perfect for reverse engineering, product design, and quality control.

High-resolution 3D scanner using blue light technology

It is perfect for capturing small objects or intricate details of large industrial objects in high resolution, with steadfast accuracy and brilliant color.

The scanner’s ability to render complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs sets the technology apart. It is an ideal industrial 3D scanner for high resolution capturing of objects such as molding parts, PCBs, keys, coins or even a human ear, followed by the export of the final 3D model to CAD software.

Artec Space Spider 3D Scanner Benefits

Fast Scanning Speed at 7.5 fps

High accuracy does not have to be time consuming. Artec Space Spider process up to one million points per second!

High Point Accuracy at 0.05 mm

Make extremely accurate 3D models of small industrial objects or sections of larger objects in fine detail

Impressive 3D Resolution to 0.1 mm

Capture the geometry of your items with astonishing precision. Space Spider can even render the ridges of your fingerprint!

Texture Resolution to 1.3 Mpx

Make full color 3D replicas of your object

Portable and Battery Compatible

Connect the lightweight, 0.85kg 3D scanner to a battery pack, provides up to 6 hours of power.

Safe to use Blue Light

The blue structured light technology used is absolutely safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.

Simple Point & Shoot

No need for preparation, just plug in the scanner and point it around the item as you would with a video camera.

Expandable

For capturing larger objects, or for creating an automatic scanning system, several 3D scanners can be bundled and synced together.

Artec Space Spider Features

3D Scanning Service

Long-term repeatability in data capture

Originally developed to spec for the International Space Station, this next generation industrial 3D scanner features powerful temperature stabilization and high grade electronics. This not only allows the scanner to reach maximum accuracy in three minutes but also ensures long-term repeatability in data capture, since the accuracy rate of the device is not affected by fluctuations in environmental conditions.

Using a space spider

Powerful hybrid geometry and texture tracking and capture

The Space Spider is able to read both the geometry and color of the object being 3D scanned. As a result, it collects two sets of data by which to track and perform data processing.
