Testing texture and looking at defects
The 4D InSpec can instantly measure features and defects from 0.1–100 mils (2 mm) deep on parts with challenging geometries, which makes it highly valuable for measuring 3D printed parts.
Will your part need sprue contact points removed? Will it need some post processing, such as sanding? Use the 4D InSpec to verify that your post processing was successful.
Metals and polymers
The handheld 4D InSpec inspection gauge uses a structured polarized light projection technique which is unhindered by materials or color. So whether your printing technique is sintered metal, or a polymer, using powders or extrusion, 4D InSpec can give you a high resolution measurement of the surface structure.

4D InSpec provides non-contact measurement of surface features and defects, on the factory floor, in machine shops and in field service applications.
4D InSpec XL
A handheld defect inspection gauge that works like 4D InSpec standard, but with a larger field of view, to measure wider and deeper features.
Accessories for improving portability, ease of use, or for accessing hard to reach measurements like sidewalls and through-holes.
Measuring Surface Features with High Resolution in Factory Environments
Because of the lack of rapid, accurate, shop floor measurement, inspectors often lack confidence in their assessments. The overly cautious estimations that result mean that rejection rates are typically much higher than necessary.
