ARTEC Spider

Artec Space Spider

A metrological 3D scanner with automatic temperature stabilization for the most accurate results

A new and enhanced precision instrument for CAD users and engineers, Artec Space Spider is perfect for capturing small objects or intricate details of large objects with steadfast accuracy and brilliant color.

The scanner’s ability to render complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs sets Artec’s technology apart. Ideal for scanning objects such as molding parts, PCBs, keys, coins or even a human ear. Then export 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 3D scanner features powerful temperature stabilization and high grade electronics, which not only allow the scanner to reach maximum accuracy in three minutes “ten times faster than Spider” but also ensures long-term repeatability in data capture, since Space Spider’s accuracy is not affected by fluctuations in environmental conditions.

In Space Spider, Artec 3D scanning technology has been honed to perfection to ensure the best possible quality of scans and a truly robust device, making it possible to double our standard warranty period.

Artec Studio 11

Industry acclaimed software for professional 3D scanning and data processing


MAKING ACCURATE 3D MODELS has never been so straightforward

New to Artec Studio 11 is Autopilot, an advanced smart mode which guides users through 3D scanning and data processing in a few easy steps. Answer some simple questions about the object you have scanned and Artec’s advanced 3D imaging software will select the most effective 3D algorithms for your data and will develop a high precision model ready for use in your professional application


Key Features:

  • High precision: Whether you choose Autopilot or manual mode, Artec Studio never compromises on precision.
  • Optional advanced settings: Features a full range of advanced settings giving experienced users full control and flexibility.
  • Built with speed in mind: Powerful technologies to process your data in seconds.
  • Portable 3d Scanning and processing: Scan and process your data all on a tablet! Combine this with the Artec battery pack, and you have a fully mobile 3D scanning solution!
  • Direct compaibility with CAD: Features direct export to Design X and SOLIDWORKS, making the scan to CAD process even easier.
  • Scan with 3D sensors: Compatible with 3D sensors, such as Kinect for Windows, so you can learn all the skills you need to be a true 3D scanning professional.


How does it work?

1. Press the Button – Point the scanner at the object and press the button. The scanning process will begin immediately. It’s that simple. Should something go wrong, audible and visual aids will guide you through the process, and ensure that you are scanning correctly.

2. Move the Scanner – Move the scanner around the object. Real-time surface alignment gives you a good understanding of what has been scanned so far and what still needs scanning. Do not worry if you can’t get to a certain area of the object you will be able to return to it later.

3. Make Scans – Make as many scans as needed to capture the whole object. If you need to turn the object over to acquire all sides of it, scan the whole first side, then stop, turn the object over and scan the other side.


1. Align Scans – Align all your scans together to get the full model. If something is missing, just scan that part again. To perfectly align many scans use our new optimizations algorithm. You can also place your model to the origin of a coordinate system.

2. Fuse Scans into One 3D Model – Fuse all scans together to get a single triangulated mesh. Our Fusion algorithm will do it quickly.

3. Smooth & Optimize – You can optimize the grid, fill holes and smooth a surface. Many different tools are available.

4. Texturize – Apply texture to your object automatically, with a click of mouse. The newest algorithms fully utilize the power of your CPU, so you may want to get the best one.

Export the result

Export the result into one of several 3D formats (VRML, Obj, STL, Ply, Ascii, AOP, E57, PTX, E57, PTX) to work with a variety of 3D applications available on the market, such as Autodesk Maya, 3DMax, Autocad, Pixologic ZBrush, Blender, XSI, Mudbox, Geomagic, Rapidform and many others. Moreover, you can export measurement data into a CSV file and print it.
