CappsNC Adaptive Scanning
CappsNC Adaptive Scanning is an option that could be purchased with the CappsNC
software to reverse engineer profiles on a part located on the machine tool.
This option does not need a CAD model to program and it can adaptively follow a
part profile from a start point to an end point based on the parameters
configured. An image of the curve being generated is updated in real time on the
CappsNC screen while the scanning is progress. These curves can later be merged
to create surfaces or simply exported into Iges or Step files.
