MaxSHOT 3D: Optical coordinate measuring system

Unmatched accuracy on large-scale metrology projects


Elevate your measurement speed and accuracy on large parts


Elevate your measurement speed and accuracy on large parts

Creaform’s MaxSHOT 3D™, a photogrammetry optical coordinate system, is a game changer for product development, manufacturing, quality control and inspection teams. It is the ideal solution to achieve the highest measurement accuracy and efficiency for large-scale projects and parts from 2 to 10 m. Imagine obtaining accuracy levels better than 0.015 mm/m. Gain peace of mind knowing that your measurements are always right on the dot.

What’s more, thanks to sophisticated, proven user guidance technology and easy-to-use software, technicians of all levels—even non-metrology experts— can use the MaxSHOT 3D. Contrary to traditional photogrammetry, the MaxSHOT 3D features automatic feedback before final measurements captured. Never take a bad image again!

If you consistently work on large-scale projects, the MaxSHOT 3D is your go-to solution to slash budgetbusting measurement mistakes, improve product quality, increase process efficiency, and minimize overall operating costs.
