The NPL designed monocenmc axicon camera produces diffraction limited concentric ring patterns from point source targets. Using a very accurate plate measuring machine and a laser scanning device, 3D co-ordinates were obtained in a photogrammemc test experiment giving residuals of < 2000 nm in a volume of approximately one cubic metre corresponding to a photographic plate measurement uncertainty of < 100 nm, when compared with a Moore 5Z measuring machine. The current work is concerned with replacing the laser scanning device with computer image processing taking its input from a microscope image of the plate viewed with a commercial CCD camera.
