Artec 3D Launches Space Spider, High-Resolution Handheld 3D Scanner

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Apr 29, 2015 -- Artec 3D, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional 3D software and hardware, today announces the launch of its latest professional-grade handheld 3D scanner, the Space Spider. The new high-resolution scanner is the first important upgrade of the Spider scanner, named best hardware at this year's Solidworks World, since its launch in 2013. Space Spider was inspired by the space industry; it is equipped with an enhanced cooling system that allows it to operate at a constant temperature throughout the entire scanning process, guaranteeing maximum accuracy and a better user experience.

The Space Spider's advanced cooling system keeps it from becoming overheated, a common problem for electronics in space stations, but also on Earth, especially in hot geographic areas, industrial laboratories, and other places with important variations in temperature. The heat buildup can cause a number of operating problems and safety concerns. However, Artec 3D's Space Spider design resolves this problem, eliminating the need for human intervention to prevent overheating.

"Imagine the potential of using 3D scanning technology on the international space station paired with a 3D printer," said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. "The Space Spider boasts an enhanced cooling system that allows the user to capture accurate 3D data more rapidly. This handheld scanner can endure some of the most difficult situations on Earth and has been engineered to perform in nearly zero-gravity environments when called upon."

Using blue LED lights, the Space Spider can precisely scan a variety of objects of all sizes, even those with sharp edges, moving parts or textured surfaces, in high resolution. It captures objects with an accuracy of up to 50 microns and resolution of up to 100 microns, making it ideal for CAD as well as reverse engineering and additive manufacturing. The scanner is delivered ready to use and requires no recalibration.

Space Spider retails for $27,600 and will be sold alongside Artec 3D's two other high-quality handheld scanners, the Artec Spider and Artec Eva. The Space Spider will be on display at Control Germany in Stuttgart next week with Artec complete professional hardware and software lineup at booth 5133, Hall 5.
