Templating techniques is the oldest techniques, still used to these days. It’s got the potential to be accurate, however, due to the large range of materials used to create a template, this technique is inconsistent and very labor intensive.
Datum lines is a simple technique using X & Y laser horizontal and vertical lines. This is very accurate, however still inconsistent method due to relatively high human error risk of the miss-reading tape measure at the initial data entry point.
Measuring with Digitizer is so far the most accurate method eliminating 98% human errors providing very fast and accurate results.
