Paper Abstract

New manufacturing technologies for rapid prototyping and manufacturing have remarkably evolved in recent years. Especially the new laser technology named lasercaving, where three dimensional geometries are directly realizable, gives rise to new types of applications. If it comes to the point where digitized data are needed, for rapid prototyping and manufacturing, we can no more afford to do this `by hand.' Therefore image processing systems with measurement features are needed to support the digitization and inspection processes. Related to the lasercaving method the usefulness of integrated image processing technologies is described. Application examples are given that highlight the power of the integrated system lasercaving and image processing.
