Artec Space Spider Key Features

Scan sharp details and edges
The unique 4 cameras and single blue LED projector technology enables Space Spider to capture fine details and sharp edges despite being a handheld device

High true accuracy 0.05mm
Capture object shape at up to +/- 0.05mm true accuracy, and high 3D point resolution up to 0.1mm. Suitable for metrology and reverse engineering use. Also scan in 1.3MP brilliant texture color

Scan small complex objects
Make full 1-to1 scale 3D scans of small detailed objects, for objects up to 0.5m. Capture thin edges and intricate details in high resolution

True portability with Artec battery
Connect the 0.85 kg Artec Space Spider to a Windows tablet/laptop PC and the Artec battery, which provides up to 6 hours of power, to scan practically anywhere, even where there is no electricity supply

Easy and Fast Operations

Safe to use

Artec Space Spider uses Blue LED structured light projection, making it totally safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects

Just point and shoot

No need preparation such as pasting targets and calibration, just simply plug in the scanner and point it around the object as you would with a video camera

Scan fast with geometry and texture tracking

Artec Space Spider can read both geometry and color of the object being 3D scanned. As a result, faster and smoother scanning is possible even for large featureless object using colour tracking

SDK integration and scanners bundling

Artec SDK allows you to integrate Artec scanners into your own custom solutions free of charge. Also, to capture larger area, several scanners can be bundled and synced together
