C-Link Functionality for Virtual CMM Room


During the engineering stages, manufacturers of the automotive and aerospace industries, as well as tier one suppliers, need to inspect complex setups, jigs, toolings, or prototype parts – all within a limited time frame.


C-Link provides a solution to make this inspection process faster and easier than ever before, all the while with a high level of accuracy thanks to the TRUaccuracy™ technology.

C-LinkHow it works

The C-Link functionality is comprised of a connecting kit (hardware and software) which enables simultaneous measurement with up to 4 different C-Tracks using a single reference system, previously created with the MaxSHOT 3D optical coordinate measuring system.


The C-Link functionality makes it possible to measure complex and large parts, without having to move the C-Track optical tracker around.

Furthermore, C-Link allows for the creation of large, “virtual” CMM rooms. In addition to leaving the working space free from heavy and cumbersome hardware, this solution enables seamless probing or scanning using the HandyPROBE portable CMM or the MetraSCAN 3D laser scanner.

The C-Link functionality is fully compatible with HandyPROBE, MetraSCAN 3D and VXtrack.
