Artec Space Spider

Industrial 3D scanner of metrological accuracy

A new and enhanced precision instrument for CAD users and engineers, Artec Space Spider is a high-resolution 3D scanner based on blue light technology. It is perfect for capturing small objects or intricate details of large industrial objects in high resolution, with steadfast accuracy and brilliant color.

The scanner’s ability to render complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs sets our technology apart. It is an ideal industrial 3D scanner for high resolution capturing of objects such as molding parts, PCBs, keys, coins or even a human ear, followed by the export of the final 3D model to CAD software.

Space Spider offers almost unlimited possibilities in areas such as reverse engineering, quality control, product design and manufacturing.

Originally developed to spec for the International Space Station, this next generation industrial 3D scanner features powerful temperature stabilization and high grade electronics, which not only allow the scanner to reach maximum accuracy in three minutes but also ensures long-term repeatability in data capture, since the accuracy rate of the device is not affected by fluctuations in environmental conditions.

In this powerful 3D scanner, the technology has been honed to perfection to ensure the best possible quality of scans and a truly robust device.

Objects to 3D scan

Artec Space Spider is perfect for capturing small objects with complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs. Scan objects such as molding parts, PCBs, keys or coins, or even a human ear, use a wide range of measurement and editing tools to work with your data and export it to CAD software.

Designed for space, great for Earth

Artec Space Spider was developed to spec for use on the International Space Station. Artec was asked to create a new version of Artec Spider which could be relied on to provide the most accurate and stable scanning results in the space station’s tough environment for months and months on end – and at speed. The result is the fastest, most reliable precision 3D scanner yet.

Long-term repeatability

Featuring new, higher grade electronics and a dramatically faster warming period, with temperature stabilization at 36.6 °C, Space Spider is a robust 3D scanner which provides long term repeatability and accuracy in its measured data in a broad spectrum of environmental conditions.

Saves you time

To achieve the very best results, every measurement tool is usually tuned to the conditions of a particular use case. Space Spider, however, keeps its precision in a wide range of temperatures and adjusts to the conditions in only 3 minutes, saving you precious time.
