Artec Space Spider has been selected as a finalist in the 2016 NED Innovation Awards program and has every chance to grab gold!
On the face of it, the idea to make a 3D scanner for scanning in space may seem a little out of this world, but isn’t it ideas like these that drive the industry forward? A tool like that would need to be utterly accurate, reliable and robust enough to maintain precision for many months without needing to be serviced, while still being easy-to-use, and that’s exactly what our newest 3D scanner Artec Space Spider is.
Space Spider encapsulates the best of Artec’s 3D scanning technology.
Developed to produce great results both in space, at the International Space Station, and down here on Earth, Space Spider encapsulates the best of Artec’s 3D scanning technology. Whenever you need the most accurate 3D model of an object with small details and complex geometry, such as curves, sharp ribs and cavities that are difficult to capture with other 3D scanning solutions, Space Spider is your preferred choice. This tool can help reverse engineer industrial parts, measure the deformation of steel structures, design customized prostheses – its applications are limitless!
One of the most widely read design and manufacturing magazines, New Equipment Digest (NED), has backed up the point by including this high-precision metrological scanner in the pack of 20 finalists of its Innovation Awards contest.
The magazine’s editorial team has selected 20 best products out of more than 1,500 new tools, programs and systems covered in 2015.
Through the contest, which celebrates NED’s 80th year in print, the magazine’s editorial team has selected 20 best products out of more than 1,500 new tools, programs and systems covered in 2015, which according to NED’s editor in chief Travis Hessman, “add new functionality or disruptive new applications to the industry’s status quo.”
Now that the finalists have been announced, NED has opened the contest up to their readers, allowing experts and users to make the final selection of the most innovative products of the year. Voting is conducted via an online poll at www.NewEquipment.com/Awards. The final winners will be announced May 3 at the 2016 Manufacturing and Technology Conference and Expo in Rosemont, IL.
If you support NED’s choice and want to encourage Artec’s engineers and developers to continue making great new scanners, vote for Space Spider here and share the link to the Innovation Awards page on social networks. Let’s keep 3D scanning at the forefront of technology together!
In addition to the awards picked up by Artec 3D scanners, Artec Studio software has every chance to add yet another one to our collection.
Artec releases software update with some exciting new features!
