MicroScribe Portable CMMs


At Revware, we believe that your imagination is your most powerful tool. The MicroScribe digitizer is your second.


Revware’s MicroScribe® portable CMM is used as a point-to-point, edge-to-edge data collection tool or as an alignment tracker for attached laser scanners or other types of sensing devices. MicroScribe systems capture the physical properties of three-dimensional objects and accurately translate them into complete three-dimensional models.

Which MicroScribe Arm is Best for You?

Skiron laser

Revware manufactures two versions of this desktop system, the higher accuracy MicroScribe M  series and the new, fast, flexible MicroScribe i series. Both MicroScribe arms come with two working volumes, 50” and 66”.  The MicroScribe M 66″ arm also comes with six degrees of freedom (6Dof), which adds a spin stylus appropriate for the attachment of the Skiron laser and other scanners, ultrasound transducers, and a variety of sensing devices.

Fast, Easy, Portable

The MicroScribe desktop CMM system is entirely portable and provides an easy-to-use, cost effective means for capturing physical part and alignment data, greatly speeding up and improving date accuracy.

The award-winning MicroScribe digitizer features Revware’s mechanical tracking technology in a unique, attractive mechanical arm that is compact and easy to use. MicroScribe digitizing systems capture the physical properties of three-dimensional objects and accurately translate them into complete three-dimensional models in minutes.

Constructed from high quality components like aircraft aluminum housings, lightweight graphite links and state-of-the-art electronics, the counterbalanced mechanical arm is equipped with precision bearings for smooth, effortless manipulation.

Each joint uses digital optical sensors, which are immune from any environmental noise and interference. It all makes for a versatile system that can work in most any environment and be used with solid objects of most any material.

Compatible with Most Software Solutions

In addition to working well with Revware’s own RevWorks® software, the MicroScribe system is completely compatible with over 50 software solutions available today.  To best take advantage of your MicroScribe system, use Revware’s own RevWorks software or one of many software drivers that link MicroScribe digitizing capabilities to existing third-party software applications.

Three levels of integration available:

  • Direct Support – No additional software is needed other than the host application
  • Plug-in Support – An additional piece of software provides MicroScribe capability in the host application
  • MicroScribe Utility Software (MUS) Support – MUS, enables 2D or 3D data from the MicroScribe to be sent to the host application
