In this paper we focused on one time control measurements where we compared the actual geometric shape of the product with its reference model. We used the method of laser scanning. We assumed that the required precision of the results is easiest to obtain using the electronic tacheometer and its function of scanning, but this method is the most time consuming. However, we wanted to investigate the functionality of the terrestrial laser scanning method in model control measurements compared to the currently used method. We found out that our assumption was correct and that the electronic tacheometer is indeed the most suitable for performing such control measurements. The results achieved with a laser scanner are worse and anomalies which are not really present on the measurement object also appear in the results.
