The research within MMT has developed a camera based photogrammetry system capable of addressing additive manufacturing (AM) applications. By acquiring multiple 2D images, the system software reconstructs a 3D point cloud which represents hermes ipad case replica
the component surface geometry. The current prototype software performs the calibration, set up, data capture and post processing tasks relatively slowly further work is required to deliver process cycle times to industrial requirements.This project will deliver system control software, and will seek to incorporate the principles of information rich metrology (IRM), developed within MMT. IRM features artificial intelligence (AI) and CAD model recognition (as well as other a priori data), allowing the system performance to be optimised by determining camera and object orientation, accelerating feature matching, and positioning the cameras during data capture.
