Flexible coordinate measurement based on photogrammetry
3D coordinate measurement can be conducted using different technologies and systems. Common for all techniques and technologies is, that a 3D coordinate is obtained in a predefined spot, or in a spot chosen during the measurement process.
The classic technique for conducting 3D coordinate measurement is a tactile technique using a 3D measuring machine, also called a coordinate measuring machine or CMM. This type of machine calls for a fixed granite table and a probe or a measuring arm to perform the measurement.
Non-tactile 3D coordinate measurement
At Zebicon we offer optical coordinate measurement, which is a non-tactile technology based on photogrammetry. The system is mobile, and hence can be used for 3D measuring on-site, also under extreme conditions. Two certified scale bars ensure accuracy and traceability in the measurement.
Optical 3D coordinate measurement is primarily used for:
- Dimensioning and quality control of large objects
- Verification of fixtures and tool support
- Static deformation analysis
