At EDM Intelligent Solutions, our high-resolution 3D scans of piece parts allow for form measurement down to the µm scale. A form measurement is made by cutting profiles across the 3D part scan data set and those included points are used to gather various form dimensions including radii, angles, slot width, height step and more.
Our 3D Metrology solutions utilize automated comparisons of high-resolution 3D part scans against the original CAD model, as well as additional 3D scanning services for quick and accurate difference measurements. 3D scans of the piece part containing millions of data points are compared to ideal CAD models to verify dimensional accuracy of the entire part, or a specific feature. With our 3D Metrology Services, we’re able to offer our customers in-depth, non-contact measurements of almost any shape, size, and form.
Below is an example of a difference measurement and a form inspection of a miniature lens housing. This is a four step process. The difference evaluation, form inspection, and 3D measurements of this component were completed using our MVi5 3D Metrology Center.
