White Spider AA 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 stabilisation 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.
