Artec Space Spider Special Features

Fast capturing speed: 8 fps
Capturing and simultaneously processing up to an impressive one million points per second, Artec Space Spider 3D Scanner also provides high accuracy — up to 0.05mm (0.0002”).

High 3D Point Accuracy 0.05mm
Scan in brilliant color and high 3D resolution

No targets & calibration. Just point and shoot
No need for preparation, just plug in the scanner and point it around the object as you would with a video camera. Simple

Powerful hybrid geometry and texture tracking and capture
Artec Spider is able to read both the geometry and color of the object being 3D scanned. As a result it collects two sets of data by which to track and to perform post-processing.

  • Easier, smoother 3D scanning
  • Faster post-processing
  • Achieve best possible results with geometry and texture data combined
  • Scan even large, featureless objects using color and geometry differentiation


Battery dimensions 185*125*15mm
Type of battery Lithium-polymer
Output voltage 12V
Capacity 16000mAh/59.2W
Provides up to 1 hour of continuous scanning
Charging provided by kit power adapter 100-230V to 19V
