Yes, we measure 3D geometry and GD&T parameters!

Published on September 24, 2019

Thanks to popular demand, we now have an application page outlining range of 3D geometry measurements provided by Novacam 3D metrology systems. A few representative examples illustrate these capabilities.

Couple highlights to note:

  • The precision of inside diameter (ID) measurements is typically in the 1 and 1.5 microns range (1σ), depending on the system configuration.
  • 3D geometry and GD&T (geometric dimensioning and tolerancing) measurements in hard-to-reach spaces are our unique specialty, as the proportion of examples in this category indicates
  • 3D geometry and GD&T measurements on both open and hard-to-reach surfaces are obtained automatically and much faster than with manual gauges or CMMs, while typically providing micron precision (again, depending on system configuration).
  • We also specialize in measuring surfaces with high-aspect-ratio features and surfaces in hostile environments.
  • Novacam systems are suitable for integration with robots and for inline inspection applications.

We hope that you, our reader, find the new GD&T page a useful reference.

3D measurements inside a 7.9 mm diameter rivet hole: inside diameter (ID), included angle of countersink, angle between hole and countersink axes, etc. 3D data analysis was done with industry-standard GD&T software, PolyWorks InspectorTM.

Do you need to measure 3D geometry or GD&T parameters?
