Got a question about Artec Ray 3D scanner?

Can the Artec Ray be controlled remotely?

Yes. You can control the scanner remotely via the Artec Remote mobile application.

What size objects is Artec Ray able to scan?

We recommend using Ray to capture large objects such as wind turbines, ship propellers, airplanes, warehouses, and buildings.

What's the difference between Artec Ray and other long-range laser 3D scanners?

The most distinguishing difference and advantage of Artec Ray is that it’s much more accurate. The scanner is able to capture objects and scenes with submillimeter accuracy over long distances. This feature makes Ray a perfect, precise solution for reverse engineering, dimensional control, forensics, and more.

Another difference is that Ray captures much cleaner 3D data than other laser scanners. This means that you can spend significantly less time on processing and cleaning up the noise to get a final 3D model.

Another critical advantage is that data scanned with Ray can be easily paired with the data from other Artec scanners, all-in-one software — Artec Studio. For example, a large and complex object such as an airplane or a ship can be scanned with Ray to capture the shape and all the bigger elements, while other smaller parts can be scanned with a different Artec scanner such as Leo, Eva, or Space Spider and in even higher resolution.
