A method based on iterative sampling of discrete 3D points is presented for evaluating actual geometry deviations of machined sculptured surfaces and for assisting the important accept/reject decisions making process. The strategy relies on estimating the density function of the geometric deviations between the actual and substitute surfaces, using the Parzen windows technique. The computed error density function is used to identify portions of the surface that require further iterative sampling of measurement points until the desired accuracy is achieved. This method may be used for assessing any geometry deviations due to systematic or non-systematic error sources. No prior assu...
