Full Support for Multiple Portable Metrology Instruments

Powerful, versatile, and user-friendly, SA can simultaneously communicate with virtually any number and type of portable metrology instruments. This includes laser trackers, arms, laser radars, scanners, projectors, theodolites, total stations, and photogrammetric devices–all featuring a common interface for each instrument class.



Align to a known coordinate system using a variety of techniques, from 3-2-1 and best fits to interactive fitting such as Quick-Align and classic surface fits. Relationship Fitting allows for simultaneous feature-based fitting to organic surfaces in addition to traditional iterative



Real-Time Build & Virtual Assembly

Digitally assemble components with relationships and constraints to see how parts will fit in final assembly. An entire suite of tools are available for real-time building.



Maintain a clear history of all data from start to finish with 100% traceability from measurement to reporting.


GD&T Inspection

Address ASME standard GD&T requirements with support for native CAD annotations.


Reporting Tools

Quickly and easily generate custom reports with output to a wide variety of formats.


Point Clouds

Combine laser scanner interfaces with advanced tools for feature fitting and automatic sphere extraction. Automatically extract features from scan data for easy comparison to CAD or analysis with GD&T.


Uncertainty Calculation & USMN

Calculate measurement uncertainty and use USMN to achieve the ideal instrument network.


Geometry Inspection

Define design-based inspection routines from a CAD model or primitive geometry.


Model-based Definition

Take advantage of CAD models to capture deviations over time or watch them in real-time.



Use Measurement Plans and an SDK to enable powerful scripting and automation
