Artec is proud to announce the official release of Artec Spider - an affordable, precise 3D scanner designed for CAD users.

The facts:

  • The scanner costs €15700
  • It scans with accuracy of up to 30 microns and resolution of up to 100 microns
  • It easily reconstructs thin ridges, sharp edges and shiny objects
  • It weighs less than a kilo and captures up to 7.5 frames per second
  • It uses one USB port to a connect to a PC and requires no complicated calibration procedures or markers

The Spider was first showcased at the Control show in Stuttgart in May, 2013 and received raved reviews. The first thing that visitors at the show wanted to scan was their cell phones. This was the perfect thing to scan, because Spider has no trouble with shiny or even partially translucent objects, whereas other scanners have a hard time.

Conceptually, the Spider was designed for CAD users. We envisioned this scanner on the desk of every engineer, product designer and inventor around the world. For that to happen, we had to design a light-weight, easy to use scanner that didn't have limitations of previous 3D scanners which had trouble reconstructing sharp edges and shiny or black objects. We think we succeeded, but you be the judge of that.
