3D Metrology Conference & Exhibition October 9-12 2017 Aachen

3D Metrology Conference (3DMC) is a conference and exhibition dedicated to the application and development of 3D measurement technology for industrial, scientific and cultural purposes. After the successful start of the series in Aachen in 2016, the organizing committee is dedicated to bringing the forthcoming second event to an even broader audience. 3DMC 2017 will again be hosted in Aachen, Germany October 9-11 2017. Future events will be held in other European countries.

3DMC aims at end users of 3D metrology systems, equipment and software suppliers, service providers, researchers and procurement and quality managers. The target audiences operate in sectors such as aerospace, automotive, power generation, marine, off-shore, built environment, cultural heritage and virtual reality. Users and developers from these diverse fields can share their differing experiences, values, and requirements while, at the same time, helping to drive the industry forward.

Typical conference themes will include:

  • Technologies and applications of portable coordinate metrology from meso to large scale
  • Fixed 3D metrology on the micro to meso scale
  • 3D metrology for advanced manufacturing
  • Automation and in-process metrology
  • Future industrial requirements and next-generation technologies
  • Augmented reality
  • Measurement uncertainty and traceability

The organizers welcome presentations of metrology applications at all scales, from the reverse engineering and inspection of small parts to the as-built 3D modelling of entire process plants.

Whilst portable methods drive many developments in 3D metrology, the organizers also want to hear about the high accuracies of fixed axis technologies and sub-surface inspection offered by computed tomography and non-destructive testing (NDT).
