  • Finding an edge

    I have a callout which is the height of a raw edge. One side of the edge is a plane, the other side is a free surface. The edge is the intersection between these features.

    I've played with edge point offline but the sample points don't look right on the free surface side. I may try to scan over it to get the max point from the scan but have never scanned over a sharp edge before and there will be a severe change of direction for the scan.

    Any ideas! Thanks in advance.

    I've had to do the same thing. Customer requires measurement at the theoretical intersection point regardless of how much of an edge break there is. One edge is only .125' long. Ended up measuring 2 lines and creating a point at the intersection of the 2 lines.

    Is the free surface flat at all near where this intersection would be?

      No not flat, its curved right from the edge so can't get a line on there.

        I am trying to perform an edge scan, but the machine keeps crashing when I do so. I believe the main reason is my inexperience with a CMM, so I hope...
