  • Fast & accurate multi-sensor 3D inspection
  • Part-to-CAD inspection: First article inspection against CAD model
  • Inspection of geometric features
  • Gap-and-flush inspection
  • Reverse engineering: from concept studio clay to class A surfaces
  • Digitizing for additive manufacturing


ModelMaker scanners with MCAx arms deliver high-productivity & precise non-contact metrology


ModelMaker H120 scans multi-coloured Lego bricks.

Scan parts with strong colour transitions with no loss in scanner speed and no prior part preparation.

Used to optimise production workflow through rapid, reliable and accurate analysis of product dimensions – both freeform and geometric. It has proven to be an invaluable tool across many industries and workplaces from the shop floor to the metrology lab.

ModelMaker laser scanners are able to robustly measure almost any material and with the flexibility to inspect parts of sizes ranging from a few millimetres to several metres.

This portable measurement solution is well suited to many industries. Automotive, Aerospace, Power Generation and Consumer products, as well as Universities, Research Institutes and scanning service providers. It is especially developed for components such as tools and dies, body-in-white / sheet metal parts, castings, injection moulded, soft or fragile materials and additive manufactured parts.
