3 Ways to Kickstart your 3D Machine Vision Project

3D machine vision

In a 3D machine vision system, the target object image is no longer just a flat picture. Now it’s a three-dimensional point cloud of precise coordinates where the position of every pixel in space is known. It simultaneously provides X, Y and Z plane data along with respective rotational information (around each of the axes) as well.


This 3rd dimension of Data is ideal for applications such as:

  • Thickness, height and volume measurement
  • Dimensioning and space management
  • Measuring shapes, holes, angles, and curves
  • Detection of surface or assembly defects
  • Quality control and verification against 3D CAD models
  • Robot guidance and surface tracking (e.g., for welding, gluing, deburring, and more)
  • Bin picking for placing, packing or assembly
  • Object scanning and digitization
