  • Typical value for diameter measurement on a calibrated sphere artefact.

  • Value for spheres spacing measurement on a calibrated length artefact. Results are obtained using integrated photogrammetry with volumetric accuracy optimization.

  • The volumetric accuracy of the system when using a MaxSHOT 3D cannot be superior to the default accuracy for a given model.

  • Also compatible with all major metrology, CAD, and computer graphic software through mesh and point cloud import.
