Abstract

Volumetric assessment of Cartesian machines using a universal three-axis rigid body error model was presented. Application of volumetric correction using the same model has allowed machines to produce parts to tighter tolerances. A method for calculating angular errors using linear position measurements was devised. Software has been developed to perform the additional calculations.
