Sorry, but we also don't understand this measure, specially
for the litres part.

We usually work with errors in every axis. For example, 100µm for X, Y and Z.
And then you clarify what axis means what; for example, for Z you may mean the
small height of the parts, while by X-Y you would mean the keyboard plane.

If you want I can try to scan some object, and you can judge if that fits your

I could advice also about the accuracy if I knew what do you need the scan for.
