The reverse engineering approach is being widely applied in designing and manufacturing of sculptured surfaces. The first step in the reverse engineering process is collection of data lying on the surface. When using a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with a touch trigger probe for digitizing data points, the probe radius must be compensated according to normal vectors. Previous works were addressed on the iterative measurement procedure to reduce the error caused by the compensation. The… CONTINUE READING
