Enhanced 3D scanner featuring improved accuracy system

The Artec Spider range of 3D scanners is designed specifically for CAD users and perfect for reverse engineering, additive manufacturing, quality control and mass production. Together with Artec Studio software, they are a powerful, desktop tool for designers, engineers and inventors of every kind.

Artec Space Spider

Artec Space Spider is a new and enhanced version of Artec Spider, equipped with a smart cooling system to guarantee the ideal temperature for scanning.

The Space Spider was developed  to spec for use on space stations but even on Earth it provides maximum accuracy and a faster, better user experience. The warm up period to achieve maximum accuracy is ten times faster than with the original Spider.

How it works


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.
