A Laser tracker provides a relatively fast, accurate and Abstract
With the new instruments come forth, the many intuitive method of measuring large objects in industrial portable 3D CMM, like laser tracker, etc. was widely environments, now it was wide applied to alignment and applied to alignment and survey of accelerator. Now;the survey of accelerator. API T3 is the newest laser tracker primary problem is how to use them more efficiently with compact shape and reliable performance. Formerly;

In the SpatialAnalyzer (SA) is a traceable metrology 3D alignment and survey of our project CSR(Cooling graphical software platform that can simultaneously Storage Ring), we operate the laser tracker to survey communicate to virtually any number and type of network, analysis and solve the results, and monitor dimensional measurement system like laser tracker etc, adjust the position of magnets etc, all the tasks rely on and perform complex analysis tasks.

Key words: 3D survey network, SA , laser tracker It is necessary to build the 3D control survey network
in the CSR for monitoring and aligning the magnets, 1. Introduction
The Cooling Storage Ring (CSR) is upgrade project of Unified Spatial Metrology Network (USMN) brings the Heavy Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL), it answer to our measurement uncertainty issues, and the is as one of the national scientific projects in 9th USMN is GUM compliant and meets ISO standard five-year plan was put into operation in 2007. requirements.

Using scale bars can constrain dimension error. respectively (see Figure. 1). Every year during the Following example is measurement of CSRm. checking and fixing mouth in summer, we need survey Firstly, like before, we measured all the net points, control network in order to check the position of magnet including the reference points on the magnets (8 and decide to if need to adjust position error of magnets. reference points on every magnet were fiducialized
