Measure 10

FARO® Knowledge Base

Common Measure 10 Workflows

Measure With Box

Align to Holding Fixture for Part Inspection

This document describes how to align to a holding fixture and dimension length dimensions using a small satellite dish as an example.   Download the method sheet.

Alignment to Contoured Surface

This file explains how to align a part to a CAD model and inspect the surface for location and contour. This method works well for contoured and freeform surfaces.   Download the method sheet.

Changing Layer Color for a Tube


This document demonstrates how to quickly change the color and layer of a measured tube.  Placing the measured tube on a different layer (using a different color) than the nominal tube makes it easier to assess where measured geometry deviates from nominal geometry.   Download the method sheet.

Changing the Output Units of the Digital Read Out (DRO)

This file describes how to change the output units of the Digital Read Out (DRO). The DRO shows the real time location of the probe with respect to the origin using the selected coordinate system.   Download the method sheet.

Checking Set-up Stability During a Measurement Session

This document outlines the process for checking set-up stability using control points and a DRO window to monitor the set-up for movement.   Download the method sheet.

Customizing the Command Ribbon 

This file details the process to customize the Measure 10 command ribbon. Customize commands, tabs, or create new ribbons.   Download the method sheet.

Determining the Diameter of a Taper

This document explains the process for determining the diameter of a taper (the circle formed by the intersection of a cone and plane).   Download the method sheet.

Determining Wall Thickness

This file details the process of determining the thickness of a wall or part material.   Download the method sheet.

Dimensional Inspection of a Truck's Extended Cab

This file details the process of inspecting the interior of a truck and constructing points from measured features to create an alignment.   Download the method sheet.

Dimensional Inspection of a Turbine Housing


This document describes the process measuring the inner and outer diameter of a turbine's conical area, positioning the part and inspecting the part's dimensions.   Download the method sheet.

Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GDT) in Measure 10.5 and up

This file explains how the GDT symbols and terms function in Measure 10.   Download the method sheet.

How to Import-Export in Solidworks and CAM2 Measure 10

This document demonstrates how to import and export documents in Measure 10 and Solidworks.   Download the method sheet.

Inserting a JPEG into Graphical Text Report

This document describes how to change the logo image in the upper right corner of a report.   Download the method sheet.

Inserting a Company Logo on to a Report

This document describes how to insert a company logo on to a report.   Download the method sheet.

Inspecting a Round Tube

This file explains how to measure a round tube and compare it to its nominal.   Download the method sheet.

Inspection of a Sway Bar

This document provides a general routine for inspecting a sway bar.   Download the method sheet.

Inspection of Tire Machine Roller Parallelism

This method sheet details how to check the parallelism of a roller compared to a master roller.   Download the method sheet.

Iterative Alignment with Surface Points


This file explains the process of refining the fit to a CAD model with a complex surface. This process is typically done after an initial rough alignment to create an effectively finished alignment.   Download the method sheet.

Material Temperature Compensation

This sheet describes the methodology of compensating for expansion or contraction of a material due to temperature changes.   Download the method sheet.

Measurement of a Roller/Calender for Contour

This document details how to measure or find any contour that might be present in a Calender or Roller assembly down the length of the roller (perpendicular to the direction it rolls). This sheet is designed for using a Laser Tracker, but can be easily adapted to using a FaroArm.   Download the method sheet.

Measuring a Compound Angle

This sheet describes the process of measuring a compound angle. Compound angles are formed by the edges of triangles that lie in different planes.   Download the method sheet.

Moving the Device During Measurement

This document provides general guidelines for performing a simple Move Device command for times when a part or setup cannot be checked from one orientation. A Move Device command is used to reposition the equipment.   Download the method sheet.

Obtaining a Cone Profile

This sheet describes the methodology of scanning the surface of a cone and comparing the data to its respective CAD model to obtain the profile at specified cross sections.   Download the method sheet.

Reverse Engineering an Aircraft Propeller


This file demonstrates the process of reverse engineering an aircraft propeller by scanning cross-sections and exporting the data for analysis.   Download the method sheet.

Tube Correction Report

This document explains how to create a Tube Bend Correction Report for an inspected round tube.  Download the method sheet.

Tube Fitting Application Guide
