Experiment, Results and Concluding Remarks
For verification of the developed model of inspection planning for prismatic parts on a CMM and measuring path simulation, to visually inspect the collision between the measuring probe and the workpiece, the programme was first written. Apart from verification and simulation, one of the major goals of the written programme is generation of the measuring protocol and a list of output control data, which are then used in the experimental planning process and as an input for experimental measurements. The simulation output is a measuring protocol for CMM ZEISS UMM500. An experiment was performed on two prismatic parts that have been produced for the purpose of this research. The inspection results show that all tolerances for both parts are within the specified limits. The proposed model presents a novel approach of the intelligent inspection planning. The advantages of this approach imply the reduction of preparation time due to an automatic generation of a measuring protocol, a possibility for the optimisation of measuring probe path, i.e. the reduction of a time needed for the actual measurement and increase the planning process autonomy through minimum human involvement in the process of part setups analysis and measuring probes configuration.
