FREE SURFACE SCANNING WITH CMM AND ITS REPRODUCTION IN CAD SYSTEM
AbstractCommon usage of Coordinate Measuring Machines in industry means that they are applied not only for the measurement of the details, but also for the digitalization of the geometrical elements. Nowadays, the development of scanning methods enables the easy measurement of free surfaces. Digitalization of such surfaces with scanning probe heads is much faster than touch trigger probing, while the uncertainty level remains almost the same. However, the accuracy of points localization is dependent upon the scanning speed.
