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.
Speed and precision
Processes up to one million points per second, far quicker than a laser scanner, AND produces extremely high resolution (up to 0.1mm) and superior accuracy (up to 0.05mm).
Artec Space Spider is here and ready for the long haul. In fact, it’s so stable and reliable, that we are doubling the warranty period.
Extremely light, weighing in at 850 grams (1.9bs) and battery compatible. This means you can really take Artec Space Spider anywhere, even to space!
No need to stick targets all over your object, just point and shoot.
High resolution and detailed texture
Scan in brilliant color and high resolution (up to 0.1mm).
Scan at 7.5 frames per second. Frames are automatically aligned in real-time.
Safe to use
Artec Space Spider uses LED lights and is totally safe to use for scanning both children and adults.
Integrate any Artec 3D scanner into your own customized scanning system using Artec Scanning SDK.
Artec Space Spider is the perfect solution for rapid prototyping and manufacturing, as well as healthcare, the automotive industry, aerospace, quality control, heritage preservation and graphic design.
