Artec Metrology Kit Entry Version

Artec Metrology Kit Entry Version is a 3D optical coordinate measuring system for high-precision industrial applications – think deformation analysis, testing, inspection. The Metrology Kit is flexible enough to integrate into your workflow, delivers perfect results both in your workshop and outdoors, and is compatible with major software like Control X and PolyWorks.

The Entry Version of the Metrology Kit can operate as a standalone optical measurement solution, or as a referencing tool for even higher 3D scanning accuracy over distance. Using the Metrology Kit plugin, you get the entire 3D scanning + photogrammetry workflow right inside Artec Studio.




The Artec Metrology Kit is a professional photogrammetry solution with metrology-grade precision and high-end volumetric accuracy for inspection, reverse engineering, and other industrial measurement applications.

The Artec Metrology Kit is flexible enough to integrate into your workflow, delivers perfect results both in your workshop and outdoors, and is compatible with major software like Control X and PolyWorks.

DAkkS-certified 6DoF optical measurement

Complete optical coordinate measuring system with accuracy of up to 10 microns. Camera resolution of up to 30.3 megapixels, a 28-mm wide-angle lens, measurement targets, adapters, and scale bars.

Use it anywhere

The whole Kit fits in a rugged, portable case, and with dynamic referencing, you can capture objects in motion – perfect on sites where it’s impractical to use traditional measuring machines and other 3D measurement tools.

Compatible with different software

The Artec Metrology Kit is compatible with industry-leading software solutions like Geomagic Control X, PolyWorks, and many more.

Use for Inspection

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.
Use for Deformation Analysis

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.
Referencing for 3D scanning

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.
