Many people purchase 3D scanners without considering the resolution. But resolution can be very important when scanning small parts and very fine details.
In continuing our series on GD&T callouts, today's Metrology Minute focuses on Flatness. Flatness is a very simple callout that focuses on just how flat a particular surface is without making reference to any specific datum. Very often, a Flatness callout can determine whether a job shop is able to face mill a surface to its finished dimension or if grinding and perhaps outside services are required to achieve the necessary Flatness. If a specific [...]
