Unformatted text preview: required accuracy. International standards provide wellstructured theories and methodologies to represent tolerances specifications and to perform the inspection process. The traditional approach is based on the specification of GT information on 2D drawings and on the use of Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) to inspect the manufactured component. 147

Mandorli Today, Computer Aided Tolerancing (CAT) tools based on 3D CAD models, can support the identification of the best inspection strategy thanks to the computation and the visual simulation of alternative sensor probe paths, the support to measured data visualization and interpretation, etc. However, the time required by the CMM machine to measure the product, the complexity of running up the inspection set-up and the know-how required by the human operator, are still significant bottlenecks in the inspection process. Our intent is to provide the final user with a system able to support th...
