Artec Ray
High accuracy long-range laser 3D scanner, ideal for precise capture of large objects. Scan up to 110 m away with this professional LIDAR solution.

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.

Wow, this is great! I am a fan of Artec's products so now I am eager to see what they have in store with their terrestrial laser scanner. I want more information!!

It looks like a re-branded Surphaser -a good thing if it lowers the price.

Yes, it likely is but what interests me more is if you can use the Artec Studio software with it! They have great meshing and texturing capabilities so it coudl really prove valuable when you are looking for high accuracy and meshing capabilities.

I'd like to see some colorized projects done with this unit.

Interactive model: see link above

"This Klemm L25d VIIR LX-MA airplane is an exhibit at the Aviation Museum in Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxeumbourg. The airplane is hung from the ceiling of the tall museum building and would therefore be an insurmountable challenge for a short-range scanner, but not for Artec Ray, which can scan an object from up to 110m away!
Artec Ray was place in 26 different positions around the airplane to make a complete 3D model. We used 12 small and 6 big spheres. As the spheres were magnetic, it was very easy to attach them to the metal constructions which were set up in the museum.
It was not exactly easy to scan this plane, since the view was partially obstructed by some of the other exhibits on show. Also, there was a staircase in the middle of the hall, which meant that we couldn’t place the scanner right under the plane.
In order to set up Artec Ray at the right distance from the plane, the scanner was placed outside the walls of the exhibition hall. And some parts of the plane were scanned through the glass doors.
As the scanning process was not quite easy, it took us a whole day to scan the airplane and we used 3 three full-charge batteries.
But despite all these difficulties, Artec Ray was able to make a high quality 3D model of this plane!
And in fact, only during post-processing did we notice that there were two mannequin pilots sitting in the cabin!
The pilots and windscreen were modeled in third-party software."

Funny, I've been to Mondorf Les-Bains quite some years ago but don't remember seeing this.

Was this meshed in Artec Studio or Geomagic software?

Good question -one for Artec to answer.

"The Artec Ray can be easily paired with Artec 3D’s other professional-grade handheld scanners, such as Eva, Space Spider or Leo, to make for even faster scanning of large objects. For instance, to digitize a vehicle, the user can first take four wide 3D shots from each side of the object with the stationary Artec Ray, capturing the large flat sections in minimum time. Then the user can fill in the details, such as the door handles and the grille, with an Artec handheld scanner, which gives comfortable access to every angle of geometrically complex areas. If needed, the easy-to-maneuver handheld-scanner can also be used to scan the interior, providing a full 3D model, inside and out. Melding together scans from various Artec scanners with the Artec Studio software is simple and intuitive. In addition to the export format options Artec Studio already provides, the Ray scanner will also be capable of producing point cloud formats (PTX and BTX) for a wider range of application specific software."

Here is a Surphaser Model 10 link to compare with the Artec Ray model: http://www.surphaser.com/10-scanner.html What software comes with the Artec, from Surphaser? How do they compare price wise? Export to ReCap? Workflow? Lots of apples and orange questions for the LSF.

Surphaser 3D laser scanner operation control
Automatic target extraction and target-based scan registration
Scanner hardware self diagnostics and self calibration
Real time raw data acquisition and compression
Real time data analysis for scan quality control
Rapid Preview Scan and on-screen areas of interest selection for high density scans
Processing of the raw 3D scan data featuring:
Generation of point cloud or interpolated surface (mesh)
Extensive set of filters to isolate areas of interest and eliminate
unreliable data
Data export in standard industry formats
Automatic color image mapping to point cloud
