Error Inspection for Turbine Vane Based on Reverse Engineering
An error inspection method based on 3D laser scanning measurement is proposed for the purpose of achieving field rapid inspection of turbine vane surface. The 3D model of vane is reconstructed by using the data of form drawing in CATIA. By using handy laser scanner, the point cloud data is obtained from the wood pattern of vane, which is processed in Geomagic Qualify. After registration of vane solid model and point cloud data, the vane surface is rapidly inspected by analyzing 3D error and comparing cross-sectional data.
