This paper presents the design of a gauge that can be used to evaluate the accuracy of photogrammetry. It was manufactured of aluminum on NC equipment and then measured on a CMM machine to obtain its absolute values, both dimensional and angular. Due to the limitations of photogrammetry, among which its inability to obtain a true-to-scale 3D model, only the angles measured between flat surfaces were considered for the accuracy evaluation. These are not influenced by the scale at which the object is generated. The entire mesh obtained by photogrammetry was then manually scaled and compared with a model recreated using data from the CMM measurements.
