    Scanning in a tube top in Radial?

    Is there a way to scan the top of this as a closed scan and in a radial distance from the center of the tube?

    Are those the same part?

    The first looks somewhat round the second looks really warped

      Same part. Top veiw, its round and has to flats on either side and about a 9 degree rise with a dip in it and a flat area of about 100mm. Its a conical form. Its a die detail that has been broke in two the welded and now they want me to scan it so we can make another.

      How would you or anyone scan this thing?

          Believe it or not, yes. They want it back asap so they can stick in to the press and keep running. You guys are not in Stampings are you?

            What type of accuracy are you looking for?

            Are you planning to make a surface from the scan data?

              Measure the circle first = x0,y0

                I don't know squat about scanning Paul(a) but I'm guessing that the cmm doesn't really care if you are wearing a tube top or a t-shirt or a dress.

                    Align to the bore. Create a vector point at whatever radial distance you want, surface vector 0,0,1. Highlight the point and hit Ctrl C. Next go to Edit, Pattern. Divide 360 by how many hits you want, i.e, 360/400 = 0.9 degrees. Enter in .9 number in the angle area. Then type in 399 into the number of times to Offset and hit OK. Now place your cursor after the point you created. Go back to edit and hit paste with pattern. Create a set and profile the set. Ta Da.

                        I would use a laser camera, sorry that does not help you much.

                        With a CMM, I would align to the biggest single piece from the break, then start doing a bunch of closed scanns, COMP OFF, 0.5 to 1.0mm increment, every mm or so from bottom to top.

                          Your one Bad Muther Focker! That's what I was doing only manually. What a pain in the butt. I tried doing that with just copying and the paste with patterern but did not work. This is the first time I have used that. I can see how that will come in handy. I owe you a cold one. I still would like to see them make a scan possible so my head does not have to leave my Tube Top
