Surface digitization in reverse engineering is the key step in parts repair, and this is of great significance for remanufacturing. Today, I will present a new surface digitization technology based on integrating the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and the line structured light sensor. The structured-light sensor is applied to scan the profile of a part, while CMM is used to measure the key features of the part. The data generated by different sensors can be merged into the whole data. This integration system has both the efficiency of the structured-light sensor and the high accuracy of the CMM.
