Abstract

A new process of cutting tool design by using 3D scanning-aided technology has been invented by using rapid prototyping principles. The main demands of designing process is getting the precise position of 3D burr line from a real casting that differs from the CAD model. Collected and captured data from the scanned object provides the generation of a 3D cloud of points. The defined step-by-step procedure meets the highest quality standards and significantly improves the efficiency of tool production. The method has been invented in Laboratory of Experimental Mechanics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb, and can be easily implemented in standard tool design procedure.

Keywords: computer-aided design, 3D scanning technology, rapid prototyping
