3D Scanner Enables Reverse Engineering
Available from Capture 3D, the GOM mbH ATOS Core series of 3D scanners is suitable for inspection, rapid prototyping and reverse engineering applications. Designed using the fundamental ATOS concepts, the scanner features GOM’s stereo-camera-structured blue light technology for quickly obtaining the digital surface geometry of a physical object. After each scan, the system’s software automatically aligns the measurements to build an accurate 3D virtual representation of the object. Essential, Professional and Kinematics models are available. Features such as parametric inspection, touch probe photogrammetry and automation can be added as options. The scanner can be used in conjunction with the ATOS Triple Scan and ATOS Compact Scan series, or with multiple ATOS Core units via instant hot-plugging.

Guidelines used to standardize the measuring process can provide a good basis for making gage decisions.
Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
