Author Affiliations +
The sharp edges of most precision machined surface must be ‘broken’, which involves rounding them or adding a flat chamfer. Part longevity, human safety during handling, and proper performance of the component is the intended application of this edge breaking. Traditional visual inspection or single-trace metrology is insufficient to assure parts are within specifications. This paper will present a handheld, 3D-measurement device using polarized structured light which allows for rapid, simple, shop-floor measurement of edge break, chamfer angles, and other precision part geometries. A variety of component measurements will be presented along with studies on accuracy, repeatability, and reproducibility in real-world environments.
