Surface Deviation Analysis

This command allows finding deviation of the normal from the specified direction for the selected face. The coloured image of the face allows viewing the deviation over all face area. It is also possible to measure deviation at a specific point.

There are many advantages to using a 3D scanner for surface deviation analysis. You can quickly scan a physical part into digital form. When used in conjunction with 3D inspection software, you can see within minutes how the part compares to a standard

The goal is to quickly identify the problem areas to:

  • Correctly fix the issue in the shortest amount of time, or
  • Pass/Fail a manufactured part to maintain high-quality control standards (depending on set tolerances)
  • Manufacturing problems can be quickly identified using 3D inspection which can result in huge time and cost savings.
