In order to enhance the performance of our 5-axis laser robot machine to the full extent, we installed an adaptive measuring system with protection on the ending arm of the machine. This brings at least three virtues: (1) Achieving measure functions by employing the same numerical-controlled mechanical structure without extra cost; (2) Increasing the capacity, efficiency, and accuracy of the raw measured data into machining format [computer aided design (CAD)/computer aided machining (CAM)/computer aided processing (CAP) process]; and (3) Realizing 3-dimensional (3-D) intelligent measurement for large size workpiece (up to 3 X 2 X 1 cubic meters) with given measurement accuracy (to 12 micrometer). Discrete 3-D signal point data are acquired and processed automatically by a personal computer, and the program employing network predicting concept has adaptive function with which the single- or multi-step measuring is determined by the surrounding points. By means of intelligent measurement a fast and effective measurement can be carried out for even a complex surface.
