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. 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.
The previous generation high resolution 3D scanner. An excellent choice for scanning small objects or details in areas such as media design and heritage preservation, where long-term repeatability in data capture is not required.
Artec Space Spider and Spider process up to one million points per second, far quicker than a laser scanner. High accuracy does not have to be time consuming!
Make extremely accurate 3D models of small industrial objects or sections of larger objects in fine detail
Make full color 3D replicas of your object
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
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.
Artec Spider is laser-free technology and is absolutely safe to use for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.
No need for preparation, just plug in the scanner and point it around the around the item as you would with a video camera. Simple.
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.
Learn how to process a precise 3D model in no time
Now anyone can achieve professional standard 3D models with the most comprehensive 3D technology and data processing software on the market. The new Autopilot mode walks you through the whole process from start to finish, automatically choosing the best algorithms for your data, so you can sit back and watch your model being built before your eyes. Also available are a whole range of advanced features for more experienced users to have full control over their results.
