Objectives
Our objective is to establish and align the part coordinate system with the CAD data.
Our secondary objective is create and run a program that measure the specified feature
on a given part.
Theoretical Principles
CMMs are used in industry to measure features of apart. Since the machine is doing all
the actual measuring it means that the results can be easily repeated with different
operators. CMMs can also be programed to measure against a certain tolerance to
evaluate whether the feature is within spec or not.
The Mitutoyo is much more difficult to use compared to the Brown and Sharpe. With
the Brown and Sharpe only a clear plane is needed instead of intermediate points with a
Mitutoyo. Also you can specify where the feature is with the Brown and Sharpe but, you
cant do that with a Mitutoyo.
Equipment
The following equipment was used in this lab experiment:

Brown & Sharpe CMM with PCDMIS software


Part specimen: B&S Demo Block

Experimental Procedure
1. Create a NEW Program. Select inches as the units
2. In the probe utilities window recall LAB307_PROBE hit ok. Import
BSBSOLID.IGS and BSBWIRE.IGS in to the program
3. Scale view to fit and save it as the top view
4. In the PROBE TIPS pull down recall the T1A0B0 tip
5. Make sure the test block is placed on the CMM granite with the slot pointed to
the top left of the CMM
6. Create a datum plane by taking 4 hits on the top of the surface block; scale the
view to fit after.
7. Set the level of the previously measured datum plane to Zplus
8. Take 2 hit from left to right on the bottom edge (datum B)

9. Take another 2 hits on the left edge (datum C)


10. Construct a point from the 2 lines measured
11. Insert a new alignment; make sure datum b is 90 to the Z PLUS axis
12. Set the origin point for each axis by using the point constructed from datum B
and Datum C
13. in the alignment utilities select cad equals part and PCDMIS will match the axis
and origin of the cad to the alignment
14. toggle to DCC mode
15. in parameter set the clearance plane to 1.500 from the ClearPlane tab; Make sure
Clearance Planes are active (on)
16. set the Find Tolerance to .1 in the Find Nominals menu
17. measure the four 1 bores on the top surface of the test block using the
Automatic Measure feature; insert a move to Clear Plane after the last bore is
measured
18. in the dimension location from the insert pull down, check auto and select the
ID for the four bored holes then select create
19. in the edit makings window select Clear All followed by Mark All
20. show path lines for the program, execute the program if everything seems to be
ok
21. after the program has finished, measure Datum D by inputting its Coordinates
22. translate the origin to Datum D
23. measure the four .375 holes using the Automatic Measure feature and insert a
move back to the Clear Plane after the last hole
24. check the program for colisions
25. run the program
26. print the program

Discussion of Results
All of the features measured where in tolerance. Our biggest deviation was hole number
9 which was over sized by .0045 inches which is still less that .005inches. Some possible
errors could be setting up the origin point; we had a hard time setting it up our selves.
Another error could be a worn out probe tip, this can be likely the situation because all
our measurements were oversized.

Conclusions
The Brown and Sharpe is very good at measuring parts quickly with limited human
interaction with the part it self. It is also able to compare measured results to pre-loaded
CAD model. It is also much more efficient then the Mitutoyo do speed and simplicity
