Artec Space Spider 3D Scanner

Artec Space Spider

The Artec Space Spider is an excellent choice for scanning small objects or details in areas such as media design and heritage preservation, where long-term repeatability in data capture is not required. The Artec Space Spider is an industrial 3D scanner with metrological accuracy.

The Space Spider is reviewed as having relatively fast scanning speeds and incredible accuracy and pairs seamlessly with Artec Studio software to make scanning an effortless process.

The Artec 3D Space Spider is a precision and high-resolution 3D scanner for CAD users and engineers. It is perfect for capturing small objects or intricate details of large industrial objects in high resolution, with steadfast accuracy and brilliant colour. With the minimum object size of just 5 mm, the Space Spider is perfect for small scans of intricate parts or, capturing minute details of larger objects. This makes the Space Spider the most precise handheld scanner available from Artec, outperforming both the Artec Eva and the Artec Leo 3D scanners.

The scanner’s ability to render complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs sets it apart from similarly priced 3D scanners. It is an ideal industrial 3D scanner for high resolution capturing of objects such as moulding parts, PCB’s, stamping tools, tooling & tooling templates.

The Space Spider 3D scanner offers almost unlimited possibilities in areas such as reverse engineering, quality control, product design, and manufacturing.

Most structured light scanners that have two 3D cameras, the Space Spider has three 3D cameras at various angles and depths. The result is that this scanner has a resolution of 0.1mm (with an accuracy of 0.05mm) — five times higher than the Artec Eva.

Artec’s “hybrid geometry and colour based” tracking capabilities in the Space Spider, paired with Artec Studio software, does not need calibration or targets in order to function properly. This simplifies the scanning process a lot and, reduces the time needed to achieve reliable scans. Scans can often be completed without disturbing the object(s) being scanned. This capability is useful for many scientific and medical applications.

Developed for use on the International Space Station, the Artec Space Spider provides accurate and stable scanning results in the space station’s tough environment for months and months on end – and at speed.
