End-to-end quality control

Every part exactly as you want it - every time

Built-in quality - the MakerVerse supply chain

The MakerVerse premium supply chain consists of hand-picked suppliers that all have gone through a rigorous selection and onboarding process. Suppliers are continuously monitored and assessed per engineering best practices and technological advancements.

Highly-trained application engineers review and confirm the production and inspection of every single part ordered via the MakerVerse platform and generate a dedicated inspection report.

We ensure the ISO9001 certification of every manufacturing partner. Further, we guarantee material properties according to our MakerVerse material data sheets, which are based on inspection processes following standardized industrial norms.

Assured quality - our partnership with ZEISS

MakerVerse collaborates with ZEISS, the world's leading technology enterprise for industrial quality, to offer the best-in-class solution for industrial-grade manufacturing. ZEISS' network of quality excellence centers seamlessly integrates into the MakerVerse manufacturing partner network to offer a wide set of dimensional, surface, and material property-related inspection reports.

Optical 3D scan


Measurement of dimensional part properties using high-quality stereo cameras

Best applicable for the measurement of free-form surfaces and contours

Ideal for quick lead times

Optical 3D Scan_icon

Through optical 3D scanning, a digital twin of the physical part is generated which can be compared to the original design geometry or inspected digitally for dimensional properties.

Moving fringe patterns are projected onto the part’s surface using a narrow band, high-power blue light source. A two-stereo camera system with a combined resolution 2x12M captures the reflections of the projected fringe pattern while ambient non-blue light is filtered out. The filtered data is transported through high-speed optical fiber to a dedicated control system where it is processed to generate 3D meshes fast and reliably. The resulting three-dimensional point cloud can be used for digital measurements of the surface profile or compared to the original design file in STL, STEP, or other formats.

  • Point distance: 0.03 – 0.12

  • Points per scan: 12 million

  • Measuring area: (100 x 70) - (500 x 370)

  • Measuring volumes: 100, 170, 270, 350, 500

With our 3D optical scan option, you receive a report comparing the dimensional properties of the physical to your design intent/file. You further receive the optical twin of the physical part viewable and measurable in the free GOM Inspect Viewer.

Tactile - CMM


Precise measurement of dimensional part properties using a coordinate measurement machine (CMM)

Best applicable if a number of points need to be measured with high precision

Lead times can be longer compared to 3D scans

Tactile CMM_icon

Dimensions are measured directly on the part with a coordinate measurement machine. During the process, a highly sensitive tactile sensor is brought into contact with the contour of the surface of the part. Any number of coordinate data points can be measured with the sensor and are subsequently sent to a computer where they are processed, compared to the digital design file, and visualized in a report. The slightest deviations between the actual part and the drawing specifications can be detected.

  • Performance indicator: MPE_THP = 0.9 μm in MPT_tau = 40 s

  • Precision: <0.2 μm

With our tactile CMM option, you receive a report including the dimensional positioning of 5 physically measured points on the part, that can be compared to each other and to the digital design file.

Surface roughness


Measurement of the roughness of a part’s surface using a sensitive stylus

Applied when knowledge on the statistical deviations of a surface from its ideal form in the direction of the normal vector is required

Surface Roughness_icon
  • Evaluation length: 0.1 to 50 mm

  • Straightness accuracy: 0,3 µm / auf 50 mm

  • Measurement speed: 0.15 to 1 mm/s

With our surface roughness option, you receive a report including the heights and valleys profile along a path of up to 50mm on one surface of the part and the accordingly computed Rz and Ra values in accordance with DIN ISO 4287.

The surface roughness measurement is performed according to DIN ISO 4287, where a sharp stylus’ tip is dragged over up to 50mm on one of the part’s surfaces. The excursion of the stylus is sensitive to the heights and valleys that are passed. This allows for the measurement of the heights and valleys along path. The measurement result is displayed immediately and extrapolated to the entire surface such that common roughness metrics such as RZ are computed.

Computer tomography


Measurement of internal material properties using computed tomography scanner
Applied when the manufactured part’s internal material properties of interest must be checked against defects, build errors, pores, inclusions or voids

Computer Tomography_icon

The measured part is placed between an X-ray emitter and an X-Ray detector. The part is illuminated with X-ray beams of known power from different angles. The X-ray detector on the other side measures the attenuation of the emitted beam in the  direct line of the emission as well as the scattered light. The process is re-iterated for various layers and from various directions. The data is processed through tomographic reconstruction to obtain the cross-sectional view of the part in virtual slices.

  • Precision: up to 4µm (125 lp / mm)

  • Number of pixels: up to 3072 x 3072

  • Max measuring area (diameter x height):

    • Optimized for diameter: (770 x 1350)

    • Optimized for height: (615 x 1500)

  • Maximum part weight: 50 kg

With our computer tomography option you receive the full 3D tomographic data of the part for inspection in associated software (e.g. GOM Volume), three pass-through videos along the Cartesian axes, and an expert report highlighting any abnormalities (e.g. defects, build errors, pores, inclusions or voids).
