Master3dgageIntroducing Master3DGageTM – an affordable and portable rapid 3D inspection solution that enables machine shops to significantly increase production and improve part quality. The complete hardware/software solution automates the 3D inspection process and quickly verifies manufactured parts directly to 3D CAD models.

Master3DGageTM integrates a Hexagon Metrology six-axis Portable CMM – one of the world’s most accurate – with advanced 3D model-based inspection software. This complete solution delivers a precise, fully automated digital process to inspect directly to CAD models anywhere on the shop floor including your Machine Tool. First article inspections can be completed in minutes.

  1. Align: Align manufactured part to 3D CAD model by probing part to corresponding alignment targets on 3D CAD model.
  2. Inspect: Inspect manufactured part in real time by manually probing or by following automated inspection plans.
  3. Report: Report inspection results are automatically generated in HTML and Excel formats.
The Master3DGageTM rapid inspection process improves manufacturing productivity in several ways. First, it eliminates dependence on 2D drawings, dozens of hand tools and gages. Second, it eliminates the need to route products away from the manufacturing process to fixed inspection areas. Third, it completes a fully digital 3D design, simulation, manufacturing, and inspection workflow.
