Paper Abstract

This paper will investigate diamond turning ogive error. The equations that describe surfaces with ogive error will be derived from a simple Pythagorean model for tool offsets. The geometry of an ogive "sphere" will be reviewed and ogive form errors on aspheric surfaces will also be investigated. By considering the wavefront errors created by surfaces with ogive error the implications for optical tolerancing will be examined.
