Abstract
A common problem in fabrication and welding of complex structures is that there is no simple way to determine where to cut one part so that it will fit another part unless both parts designed and built on a CAD/CAM system. Particularly in prototype or retrofit work, cutting and fitting parts for welding is more of an art than a science. We have developed a unique video moire system that generates the intersection contour in near real time with the contour superimposed on a video image of the part, allowing the cut line to be marked while following the contour on the video monitor.
