vibración y giros


Explanation:
The word dither derives from ME "didderen" meaning "to tremble"—it was found that WWII airplane bomb sights perfomed better when vibrating than when still, similar to the improvement in accuracy gained from tapping a meter. It is used to mean "overlay" and the addition of colors in multimedia and printing technologies. It is clear from the text that it is referring to vibratory dither, and not color dither.

I suggest for: Horizontal and vertical dither (scan) and spin modes for all interior levelling and plumb applications

"Modos con vibración y giros horizontales y verticales para todas las aplicaciones utilizadas para nivelar y aplomar."

dither = el laser se mueve en un movimiento de vaivén para trazar una línea luminosa en una sección determinada.
