Paper Abstract

This article presents a new method which obtain 3D data of the complex parts or its CAD model based upon the material removal process and each cross-section optical scanning process of the parts. The advantages of this method is that the internal and external profile information of the complex parts can be capture data the same precision, the 3D data and 3D CAD model is acquired through the 3D CAD/CAM package. Examples of such structure described in this paper. In addition, the 3D digitizer is made with an existing CNC milling machine and an image scanner. Its highest accuracy of 2D edge detecting is 5.4micrometers , and the resolution is 2.7micrometers .
