Geometric dimensioning of contour profiles and horizontal contours extracted from images is a useful tool in particular in the area of quality control.
In the automotive industry, engineers used Mountains® software to check compliance of components with nominal form.
Mountains® tools used
Dimensions on lines, arcs, circles and angles between intersecting tangents were automatically generated.
Graphical display of form deviations
Form deviations from nominal segments and arcs were displayed graphically, together with upper and lower tolerance limits.
Instrument & software used
2D profilometer + MountainsMap® Profile software
