Course description

This e-learning course explores the principles and equipment associated with portable 3D metrology. The course content is divided into five modules:

  • Module 1: Principles of portable 3D measurement examines how locations in 3D space can be expressed using co-ordinate systems, approaches to measuring those locations, and why it is important
  • Module 2: Measurement strategy planning outlines key aspects of good decision-making in the planning and carrying out of a measurement task
  • Module 3: Portable co-ordinate measuring systems introduces some of the measuring systems that are used in portable 3D measurement and gives good practice guidance for their use
  • Module 4: Measurement uncertainty, and gaining confidence in measurement explores the sources of uncertainty common to different measuring systems and examines methods that can be used to gain confidence in measurement results
  • Module 5: A checklist for co-ordinate measurement introduces the checklist that accompanies the course; this checklist is designed to support the use of portable co-ordinate measuring systems

Who is it for?

This course has been created for people who are new to, or want to improve their skills in, portable 3D metrology.

Learning outcomes

This course will equip learners to understand:

  • The benefits of portable 3D metrology
  • How co-ordinate systems locate points in space, and how portable co-ordinate measuring (PCM) devices achieve this
  • How idealised geometries are fitted to point data
  • How to develop a measurement strategy
  • The operational principles of a range of PCM devices
  • Sources of uncertainty common to a range of PCM devices, and sources of uncertainty particular to each
  • How to gain a sense of traceability through verification and other confidence-building techniques
  • How to bring the right behaviours and a questioning mindset to portable 3D measurement tasks
