A Uniquely Interoperable Lidar Solution for Large-Scale 3D Scanning

With higher detail, precision accuracy, and lower noise than the average long-range scanner, the Artec Ray is an exceptionally good fit for your large-scale engineering and inspection. The Ray can scan objects as far as 100 meters away and can be repositioned as many times as needed for a practically unlimited size envelope. If you need more detail and versatility, the Ray can be combined with handheld scanners for the best of both worlds.

Unmatched Training

Every company is different, and when it comes to training for 3D scanning, one size doesn’t fit all. Hawk Ridge Systems can tailor a training plan to focus on the needs of your application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to do a full 360-degree scan if I'm only interested in specific features at a distance?

No. The Ray allows you to select as many specific areas as you’d like and scan only those areas while still retaining the relative position of each scanned area.

What resolution is the Ray?

LiDAR scanners are not ascribed specific resolutions because it varies based on distance from the object as well as adjustable capture settings like point spacing. Point spacing can be adjusted as needed to fit the desired level of detail and taking more overlapping scans will result in still higher detail.

Will the Ray export other formats? Can it output a mesh?

Yes, the Ray operates in Artec Studio like all other Artec scanners. Point clouds can be exported in a variety of formats, or turned into polygonal meshes which can be exported in many industry standard formats like STL.

How large of objects can I scan with the Artec Ray?

The Ray has no hard size limit, the only limit is computer power. Even with relatively low computer power, data can be processed in segments.

Where is the Artec Ray made?

In Washington, USA

Does any processing happen in the cloud?

No. While Artec does offer cloud processing services that can be subscribed to, all Ray data is stored and processed locally by default.

Will people walking through the area ruin the scan?

No. People walking through the area will produce areas with noise that can be easily removed later. It will not affect the integrity or accuracy of a scan.
