Artec Space Spider

  • Precision at your fingertips

A new and enhanced precision instrument for CAD users and engineers, Artec Space Spider is a high-resolution 3D scanner based on 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 Artec’s 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.

Space Spider offers almost unlimited possibilities in areas such as reverse engineering, quality control, product design and manufacturing.

Originally developed to spec for the International Space Station, this next generation 3D scanner features powerful temperature stabilization and high grade electronics, which not only allow the scanner to reach maximum accuracy in three minutes – ten times faster than Spider – but also ensures long-term repeatability in data capture, since Space Spider’s accuracy is not affected by fluctuations in environmental conditions.

In Space Spider, Artec’s technology has been honed to perfection to ensure the best possible quality of scans and a truly robust device, making it possible to double our standard warranty period.

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

Most accurate 3d scanner

Texture resolution

1.3 Mpx

Make full color 3D replicas of your object

Impressive 3D resolution

0.1 mm

Capture the geometry of your items with astonishing precision. Space Spider and Spider can even render the ridges of your fingerprint, that's how much detail they can pick up

Battery compatible for true portability

Connect the 0.85kg Artec Spider to the Artec battery pack, which provides up to 6 hours of power, and you can scan practically anywhere, even in areas where there is no source of electricity.

Safe to use

Artec Spider is laser-free technology and is absolutely safe to use for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.

No targets & calibration. Just point and shoot

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

Bundling and easy integration

For capturing larger objects, or for creating an automatic scanning system, several 3D scanners can be bundled and synced together. You can also integrate the scanners into your own customized solutions, fit for industrial applications, using the free of charge Artec Scanning SDK.
