Got a question?
What is the Artec Metrology Kit used for?
The Metrology Kit is an optical coordinate measuring system that is mostly used for different types of inspection – roundness inspection, sheet-metal inspection, and fixture inspection. Analysis – deformation analysis, tolerance analysis, 3D process analysis. And also referencing for other measurement systems. It can also be used for part alignment, CAD comparison, and other optical measurement usage applications.
What is the general workflow when using the Artec Metrology Kit?
Working with the Artec Metrology Kit begins with object preparation using targets, reference bars, and other accessories required for measurement, and then image acquisition, image transfer, image processing, and 3D-coordinates calculation for the generation of a point cloud.
In what industries is the Artec Metrology Kit used?
Because processes like reverse engineering and inspection occur in so many processes, the use of optical systems like the Artec Metrology Kit transcends any one particular industry. The Metrology Kit has found use in general industry, aerospace, automotive, wind energy, railway construction, and many more industries.
Which camera settings affect the performance of the Artec Metrology Kit?
The Artec Metrology Kit is shipped with the relevant settings already configured. These include focus, aperture, ISO, flash sensitivity, and exposure time. The measurement system is calibrated with these settings. To ensure that it works as intended, it is recommended that you do not adjust the factory settings as this could affect accuracy. Please refer to the support page for more information.
Can the Artec Metrology Kit be used as a substitute for a metrology-grade 3D scanner?
The Artec Metrology Kit provides very accurate measurements over distance. However, it does not produce dense point clouds like 3D scanners do. Depending on your use case, you may want to use one or the other, or in a combined workflow.
