Paper Abstract

Good quality measurement of the exposed surface of a complexshaped object requires ix mechanical degreesoffreedom (DOF5) between the object and a ranging system. Unlike many conventional digitizing systems which provide only four of the six DOF5 the DIGIBOT system provides five DOF5. Each additional DOF above four requires increasingly sophisticated mechanics control and data processing. With its five DOF5 adaptive/closed-loop scan control and enhanced data processing capabilities the DIGIBOT system has been used to measure relatively complex anatomical subjects. 1
