Artec Metrology Kit Features and Applications

A powerful metrology-grade measurement solution

Inspection métrologique


Using a high-accuracy optical coordinate measuring system makes inspection of objects like aircraft components, ships, and wind turbines a reliable, straightforward process.

  • High precision for full confidence: Get much more precise datasets and confidently perform inspection in use cases where requirements on repeatability are high.
  • Incorporate photogrammetry data into your own workflow: Use the Metrology Kit’s data in your own workflow to make comparisons with 3D meshes, CAD entities, and to make highly accurate measurements of distances.
  • Maintain precision in unstable environments: Accurate measurements fulfilling repeatability requirements can be taken during almost any production step – even where the part is in motion. On a hydraulic ramp, for example.
Analyse des déformations

Analyse des déformations

Use this optical measurement solution to analyze the deformation characteristics of materials under different environmental conditions and loads – processes where a short measuring time is crucial. The Metrology Kit is great for analyzing the geometrical changes of things like storage tanks, vehicle components, or design prototypes.

  • Short measuring time: Work comfortably in demanding testing environments such as climate chambers, where very short acquisition times are crucial, but reliable precision and highly accurate datasets are non-negotiable.
  • Convenient workflow: The Metrology Kit’s simple workflow is especially important given the large number of measurement points typical in deformation analysis and extreme working conditions like high temperatures and humidity.
  • Portable and flexible: The Metrology Kit’s portability ensures ease of use when working in tight spaces often characteristic of climate chambers.

Référencement pour la numérisation 3D

Combine the dense point cloud of a metrology 3D scanner with the high precision of the Kit’s optical measurements to expand the capabilities of small to medium-sized object scanners. You can have the best of both worlds obtaining high resolution on smaller elements within large objects while having them fully captured with minimal accumulated error and high volumetric accuracy.

  • Greater accuracy over distance: The Metrology Kit produces a point cloud with high volumetric accuracy that you can use as a reference to get great 3D scanning results over distance even when you’re not using a 3D scanner for metrology.
  • Simplified workflow: A complete, self-contained workflow from signalizing to reporting makes the measurement process seamless, and integrates the whole photogrammetry-complemented pipeline into one environment.
  • Increase the range of smaller scanners: Use scanners with a relatively small field of view to accurately capture much larger objects. This means you can capture small details while maintaining very high volumetric accuracy, up to 0.015 mm + 0.015 mm/m.

Easy for unstable conditions

The Metrology Kit’s portability makes it easy to transport by helicopter. A short measuring time, easy workflow, and dynamic referencing make it the ideal solution for such high-accuracy applications in unstable conditions:

  • Automotive: A major car manufacturer in Germany used the Metrology Kit for quality control to analyze the positions of welding studs on every fourth chassis in a production line. The results were used to program the welding robot.
  • R&D: As part of tests and research for autonomous driving, major car manufacturers use the Metrology Kit to accurately determine the positions of sensors on a car body and correctly place them within the car’s coordinate system.
  • Aerospace: Organizations in astronomy, defense, and space in the UK, Germany, and Japan use the Metrology Kit for high-accuracy applications. Deformation analysis was done on the main and sub panel systems of this large satellite antenna tilted at various angles.

Photogrammetry 3D Scanning Process

Combine photogrammetry’s optical measurement with 3D scanning

Préparation à la métrologie

Object preparation

Cover the object’s surfaces with targets, reference crosses, and scale bars. It is crucial that none of these move relative to the object for the entirety of the capture process.

Metrology capture

Capturing your photogrammetry images

Take a series of photos at different heights, going around the object with the camera until you’ve captured the object in its entirety. Capture each target at least 6 times, and the reference cross from four perpendicular angles.

Metrology reference cloud

Generating a reference target cloud

In Artec Studio, select the Artec Metrology Kit plugin from the file menu. Import the images you’ve just captured, run registration, and generate the reference target cloud. The target cloud will appear in the workspace. It is possible to generate multiple target clouds to choose from prior to scanning.

Metrology scanning


Remove coded targets, reference crosses, and scale bars, leaving only the non-coded targets, and scan the object in its entirety. If you are using Artec Leo, transfer the OBC file, which contains the coordinates of the targets that will be used as references for scan data, onto the scanner before you start scanning.

Choose the version that suits your needs

The Artec Metrology Kit comes in two versions. The Entry version is designed for less demanding engineering use cases, while the Professional version provides higher accuracy and is designed to make photogrammetry in more challenging environments easier.
