Squareness plays a vital role for accuracy of multiaxis machine tools. A slight error in squareness exhibits a significant inaccuracy at end effectors, measuring probe or cutting tool of a multiaxis machine tools. The inaccuracy of machine tool badly influences the product quality. In this paper authors try to investigate the possible methodologies, techniques and approaches which are viable for quantification or predication of squareness error in different joints and various topology of multi-axis machine tools. Besides classical or conventional methodology, up to date modern methodologies are also considered and their implementation is discussed. A comparison between the methodologies is made and squareness data is obtained on a multiaxis CNC machine tool by implementing different approaches. The results obtained are treated, compared and reported for its further utilization.
