3D Scanner

Leading solution for sub-micron surface metrology

MikroCAD scans and analyzes microscale surface structures down to sub-micron resolution and accuracy.


MikroCAD is the first surface metrology system to use structured light fringe projection profilometry to generate 3D surface scans with microscopic level of detail for small volume measurement (ie. fine scratches, grains of sandpaper, paper towel embossing). Compared to other methods to 3D microscopy, MikroCAD outperforms conventional technology such as confocal and white light interferometry (WLI) with its ability to produce high-resolution, full-field, non-contact 3D reconstruction of surface structures in seconds for a variety of materials.

  • Microprofilometry
  • Laser Engraving
  • Solder Pads
  • Road Surfaces

Why use Fringe Projection Profilometry?

MikroCAD’s fringe projection structured light technology provides higher resolution, down to 0.1 of a micron (0.0001 mm) on a 2 mm x 2 mm scan target. Laser-based solutions cannot achieve this level of detail due to laser speckle effects that prevent scanning at the sub-micron level.


Competitively Priced

MikroCAD offers great value for your budget. It is 1/3 of the price of comparable solutions out in the market.

Scans Challenging Surfaces

Delivers sub-micron accuracy and repeatability on challenging scan surfaces such as shiny, reflective, hard, soft, sticky, elastic, rough, and steep edges.

Fast Scan Speed

MikroCAD delivers high resolution 3D scans in seconds, while comparable solutions can take longer times (ie. half an hour).


MikroCAD are available in six models to provide a range of resolutions and measurement volumes for diverse industrial metrology applications.
