Artec Space Spider

Artec Space Spider

A new and enhanced precision instrument for CAD users and engineers, Artec Space Spider is a high-resolution 3D scanner based on blue light technology. It is perfect for capturing small objects or intricate details of large industrial objects in high resolution, with steadfast accuracy and brilliant color.

The scanner’s ability to render complex geometry, sharp edges and thin ribs sets Artec’s technology apart. It is an ideal industrial 3D scanner for high resolution capturing of objects such as molding parts, PCBs, keys, coins or even a human ear, followed by the export of 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’s 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.

 

To achieve the very best results, every measurement tool is usually tuned to the conditions of a particular use case. Space Spider, however, keeps its precision in a wide range of temperatures and adjusts to the conditions in only 3 minutes, saving you precious time.

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.

 

Process

 

 

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.
