High accuracy long-range laser 3D scanner

Artec Ray has the fastest and most accurate long-range 3D scanning capability using laser technology, for precise capture of large objects such as wind turbines, ship pipelines, airplanes and buildings. With submillimeter distance precision and best in class angular accuracy, data capture is noticeably cleaner than that from other 3D laser scanners, resulting in absolute minimal noise levels. This speeds up post-processing significantly, making scanning huge object a much smoother process. With Artec Ray, you can now simplify scanning of big objects and structures up to 110m away.

Case Studies

3D scanning an airplane in aviation museum

This Klemm L25d VIIR LX-MA airplane is an exhibit at the Aviation Museum in Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxeumbourg. The 7.5m long, 12.9m wide airplane is hung from the ceiling of the tall museum building and is an insurmountable challenge for a short-range scanner, but not for Artec Ray, which can scan an object from up to 110m away!

Artec Ray was place in 26 different positions around the airplane to make a complete 3D model. It was not exactly easy to scan this plane, since the view was partially obstructed by some of the other exhibits on show. Due to the challenging scanning conditions, it took a whole day to scan the airplane and 3 three full-charge batteries were used. Despite all these difficulties, Artec Ray was able to make a high quality 3D model of this plane!
