Abstract. Measurement tasks of modern micro- and nanometrology are posing a problem for current measurement instruments with decreasing structure sizes and rising aspect ratios. There is an open requirement for nanometre-resolving 3-D capable sensors and corresponding 3-D positioning systems to operate the sensors for 3-D measurements. A 3-D probing system based on electrical interaction is presented which is operated on a nanopositioning system type SIOS NMM-1. Furthermore, we demonstrate the progress and new possibilities for 3-D measurements with the nanopositioning and nanomeasurement machine NMM-1 and also with the application of a rotary kinematic chain. In addition new 3-D measurement routines for the NMM-1, also for micro-tactile probing systems as well as current plans, are shown.
