High accuracy long-range laser 3D scanner, ideal for precise capture of large objects.

The fastest and most accurate long-range 3D scanner with laser technology for precise capture of large objects such as wind turbines, ship propellers, airplanes and buildings. Producing 3D scans of the highest quality, Artec Ray scans with submillimeter distance precision and best in class angular accuracy. As a result, data capture is noticeably cleaner than that from other 3D laser scanners, with noise levels at an absolute minimum. This speeds up post-processing significantly, making it a hassle free job.

Artec Ray 3D Scanner

Ultra-high precision, fast laser 3D scanner with submillimeter precision to ensure you capture every detail

Cleanest 3D data capture for minimum post-processing time

Ideal for reverse engineering, inspection and construction. Scan large objects both indoors and outdoors!

Easy 3D scanning

Lightweight and user-friendly, Artec Ray was especially designed to ensure you get the most out of this powerful 3D laser scanner, whether it is getting the 3D measurements for quality control of a large industrial object or creating an accurate 3D model for heritage preservation. With no need for any lengthy preparations, you can 3D scan almost anything by simply mounting your Artec Ray on a tripod in front of your object and pressing a button!

Accessible and convenient 3D data capture

Portable and compact, this versatile long-range LIDAR solution is the latest in 3D laser scanning. An inbuilt battery lets you scan both indoors and outdoors for up to 4 hours, without a need for a power source nearby, making this a perfect solution for onsite 3D scanning.

Advanced software compatibility

3D scan and process data directly in the powerful Artec Studio software with a wide range of comprehensive tools available, then seamlessly export to Geomagic Design X at the touch of a button to make the most out of your 3D laser scanning experience.

The full 3D scanning package

Pair Artec Ray with an Artec handheld 3D scanner, such as Eva or Spider, to effortlessly capture difficult to reach areas, e.g. the interior of a car, or to add intricate detail to a large-scale 3D model. The smart combination of Ray’s long-range 3D scanning capabilities along with the convenience and precision of all of Artec’s handheld 3D scanners ensures limitless 3D scanning potential.
