Use your metrology software with your iPod, iPad or iPhone without the internet – BuildIT Tips & Tricks

Using Build!IT with iTeleport on the iPhone


Imagine: You’re alone on the job using your laser tracker to measure a large part, such as an airplane fuselage or a machinery roll in a paper mill. Your computer is set up close to the laser tracker and power supply. You climb the scaffolding to access the feature you want to measure and start measuring using your 4-button remote. After a few thousand samples, something happens. Maybe you lift the SMR by accident because there is little bump on the surface.  Maybe you want to verify the settings, or you would like to view the previewed cylinder.  Whatever the case may be, it means that you must climb back down and return to your laptop in order to accomplish the task.  This is a common enough scenario.  Wouldn’t it be better to be able to manipulate your metrology software without leaving your part? Here at BuildIT, we recommend iTeleport to remote access your metrology software securely.
