Artec Ray 3D Scanner
High accuracy long-range laser 3D scanner, ideal for precise capture of large objects.
The fastest and most accurate long-range 3D scanner with laser technology for precise capture of large objects such as wind turbines, ship propellers, airplanes and buildings. Producing 3D scans of the highest quality, Artec Ray scans with submillimeter distance precision and best in class angular accuracy. As a result, data capture is noticeably cleaner than that from other 3D laser scanners, with noise levels at an absolute minimum. This speeds up data processing significantly, making it a hassle free job.

Easy 3D scanning
Lightweight and user-friendly, Artec Ray was especially designed to ensure you get the most out of this powerful 3D laser scanner, whether it is getting the 3D measurements for quality control of a large industrial object or creating an accurate 3D model for heritage preservation. With no need for any lengthy preparations, you can 3D scan almost anything by simply mounting your Artec Ray on a tripod in front of your object and pressing a button!
Artec Studio for professional processing
Processing your data in Artec Studio is the next step for your 3D scanning process. With our software, you have easy access to an advanced autopilot mode and the most accurate algorithms for quick and easy data processing, as well as HD Mode and high accuracy used to create the most true-to-form 3D models possible. Power up your workflow as you save time and get excellent results!
The full 3D scanning package
Pair Artec Ray with an Artec handheld 3D scanner, such as Eva or Spider, to effortlessly capture difficult to reach areas, e.g. the interior of a car, or to add intricate detail to a large-scale 3D model. The smart combination of Ray’s long-range 3D scanning capabilities along with the convenience and precision of all of Artec’s handheld 3D scanners ensures limitless 3D scanning potential.
Achieving maximum accuracy with your 3D laser scanner
Combine Artec Ray with a laser tracker and professional target units for the best possible alignment and registration of scanned data. Get the highest possible accuracy and tight tolerance results for your project.
Quality inspection of large objects right at your fingertips
Looking for a professional solution to do quick quality inspections of big industrial objects? Look no further. With Artec Ray, you can scan large complex parts with metrological accuracy and then import your models into Artec Studio software to carry out basic quality control, and compare it to the original CAD file all in one place. For advanced operations, you can also export the model to Control X and other full package inspection software.
Best-in-class industrial laser scanner
A large working facility, an airplane, an oil rig, or even an outdoor space — whatever industrial object or scene you need to scan, Ray has you covered. Versatile and portable, this industrial 3D scanner is perfect for digitizing and measuring large structures with metrology-grade accuracy at any time and place — day or night, indoors or outdoors.
LiDAR 3D scanner for exact 3D measurements
Thanks to built-in LiDAR 3D scanning technology, Artec Ray allows you to capture precise long-range 3D measurements of complex objects and shapes from up to 110-meters.
Perfect long-range 3D scanner
Capture complex constructions such as warehouses, factories, airports, and apartment buildings to get precise and clean 3D data about the building, such as its size, structure, facade, and more. Thanks to Ray’s extreme accuracy and cleanliness of data, you don’t need to spend much time on processing. Put the scanned material to work right away!
