Master3DGage

Affordable, precise and portable for rapid in-process inspection.

With Master3DGage™ you can precisely pinpoint and resolve quality issues in real time, reduce scrap, improve efficiency and boost the productivity of every machine. Simplicity and ease of use are designed right in, so that even those with little or no metrology experience can get up to speed quickly. Controls and interface are easy and straightforward, so users spend less time scrolling through screens and more time making quality parts.

Master3DGage™ is a six-axis articulated arm CMM with absolute encoders and unique counterweight design making it the most balanced and accurate available. With a 1.2m hemispherical measuring volume and quick-mount base the Master3DGage is ideal for fast in-process measurement and inspections anywhere on the shop floor. Lightweight and compact place your Master3DGage™ right on your CNC machine to verify parts quickly, without repositioning.

Easy, in-process 3D measurement and inspection or GD&T anywhere on the machine shop floor

Master3DGage’s handy, quick-mount CMM system allows easy setup for on-demand measurement and inspections anywhere on the shop floor. Use Master3DGage™ right on your machine to verify parts quickly, in process, without removing or repositioning them.

Master3DGage™ makes any 3D inspection easy

Finish typical inspections, such as blueprint, in-process, incoming, first article and final inspections, quickly—with surprising ease and accuracy. Measurement reports are generated automatically, in industry standard formats, so you can know immediately whether parts are in or out of tolerance.

Align, Inspect, Report—simple, repeatable three-step process

Align: Quickly automate alignment by picking targets on CAD features (datums).
Run the routine by probing each target on the part. The Master3DGage™ software walks you through the process with simple, step-by-step instructions.

Inspect: Inspect and view in real time by manually probing or by following automated inspection plans. Easily measure features from precise single points to point clouds. Powerful software technology displays variance between the 3D model and the part.

Report: Using the 3D CAD model as the nominal definition, the system quickly generates custom reports in industry standard formats, including GD&T constraints and color deviation maps, for clear, practical analysis.


Master3DGage™ for easy reverse engineering

Working with measured data  quickly and easily create surfaces, features and planar, grid or radial cross sections on machined parts to create precise CAD models.  Reverse also creates meshes from point clouds in the form of an STL file for surface analysis or future tooling and machining.

Measure, Mesh, Model – easy three-step reverse engineering processmeasurelMeasure: Directly measure 3D features including planes, cylinders, cones and spheres and 2D features including lines, splines,circles and slots. In continuous point mode measure 100 points per second with long probes capable of reaching inside deep cavities to
quickly scan 3D point clouds of
complex surfaces.

meshMesh: Powerful point cloud and STL mesh editing tools helps prepare large data sets for 3D mesh surfacing and 3D printing. Comprehensive mesh tools create watertight mesh models including; align and merge meshes, filter, smooth and fill holes.

modelModel: Easily transform 3D point clouds and meshes into 3D surfaces and solid models for precision manufacturing. Import and export popular CAD formats for quick and easy automated inspection, guided assembly and reverse engineering.

No metrology experience needed

With Master3DGage™, simplicity and ease of use are designed right in, so that even those with little or no metrology experience can get up to speed quickly. Controls and interface are easy and straightforward, so users spend less time scrolling through screens and more time making quality parts.
