Product Features

Battery-compatible for true portability
Connect the lightweight 0.85kg 3D scanner to the Artec battery pack, which provides up to 6 hours of power, and scan practically anywhere, even in areas where there is no source of electricity.

Safe to use
The blue structured light technology used is absolutely safe for scanning people, as well as inanimate objects.

Target-free scanning
Space Spider uses hybrid geometry and color tracking technologies for the best possible data capturing and faster processing. This means no targets required to achieve accurate results.

Smart temperature stabilization
Space Spider maintains precision in a wide range of temperatures, and adjusts to any conditions in only 3 minutes
High 3D point accuracy - 0.05 mm
Make extremely accurate 3D models of small industrial objects or sections of larger objects in fine detail

Exceptional color capture
With up to 1.3-megapixel texture resolution and advanced automatic software tools, Space Spider is the perfect choice for creating vivid color 3D assets ready for movies, games, VR, and AR applications.

Impressive 3D resolution - 0.1 mm
Capture the geometry of your items with astonishing precision. Space Spider can even render the ridges of your fingerprint.

Bundling and easy integration
Bundle and sync several 3D scanners together to capture larger objects or to create an automatic scanning system. Integrate the scanners into your own customized solutions using the free-of-charge Artec Scanning SDK.
