A Proposal of Experimental Protocol to Assembly Scanning
Abstract. Scanning standalone components has become a routine task for many people though there may be some issues regarding the selection of the scanner with regard to the dimension of the object and the accuracy of the measures. Here, the emphasis is placed on scanning mechanical assemblies. This objective requires the combination of an assembly or disassembly process interacting with scanning processes. Such a combination adds complexity to the scanning processes due to the number of components being processed and the information looked for regarding the interfaces between components. Consequently, the purpose of the paper is to analyze various configurations occurring during the scanning process of an assembly to formalize an experimental protocol that can improve the quality and efficiency of this process.
