Assessing fundamental geometric form from measured coordinate data
Deviations of engineering workpieces from nominal form are often assessed using least-squares geometric-element fitting software. In certain circumstances, it is more appropriate to use minimum-zone, circumscribed and inscribed fits, for which good software is less widespread. When such software becomes more widely available it will be important to test it objectively, and for this purpose reference software is currently being developed. This paper discusses the technical basis of reliable algorithms underpinning reference software.
