CMM Inspect Path Planning for Precision Convex Revolved Surfaces
The revolved surfaces are widely applied to both optical equipments and aerodynamic domain. The revolved surface is measured by digitized measurement with the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) in this paper. A CMM inspecting path planning which is different from traditional measuring method for revolved surface is given. At the same time, this method is proved effectiveness through a practical measuring example of an optical part. The Measuring process and the measuring results are illustrated in detail.
