Abstract

This paper reviews the different methodologies used to optimize the probe path for measuring the free-form profiles using Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM). A CMM is mostly used in manufacturing industries for inspecting the part with simple and complex geometries. The parts with simple geometries can be effectively measured using CMM, however, the optimization techniques are used to select the sampling points during measurement of freeform profiles. The study explores the utilization of computing techniques such as Genetic Algorithms (GA), Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithms and B-spline curves for optimizing the sampling points while measuring the freeform profiles. The literature review also discusses the use of optimization techniques for dimensional control and inspection planning. This study provides valuable insights into the optimization of probe path and sampling points in CMM measurements, contributing to the advancement of dimensional control and inspection planning for parts with free-form profiles.
