Artec announces the official release of Artec Spider. The Artec Spider is a light-weight, easy to use scanner designed for CAD users. Unlike other hand-held scanners, Spider has been developed for scanning objects with many small details, such as molds, PCBs, coins and engravings. It scans with accuracy of up to 30 microns and resolution of up to 100 microns.
Features of the Artec Spider 3D scanner include:
- real-time scanning and fusion
- It easily reconstructs thin ridges, sharp edges and shiny objects
- It weighs less than a kilo and captures up to 7.5 frames per second
- no markers or manual alignment are required during post-processing
- The scans have texture (scans are captured in color)
"The handheld Spider is like using a video camera; you just walk around the object and record the data. It takes only a few seconds or minutes, depending on the object." says Anna Zevelyov, director of business development at Artec Group. "Scans result in a polygonal mesh, similar to a point cloud but better. That mesh can be exported into a variety of data formats such as OBJ and STL." Zevelyov added.
Spider 3D Scanner is priced at €15,700 ($20,772).
