3D models of complex geometries are needed for various engineering analyses. Some special milling tools used in machining of complex surfaces have quite intricate geometries. One example is the crest-cut tools which have wavy cutting edges. Another example is the serrated milling tools which are commonly used in heavy-duty roughing operations. The objective of this project is to generate 3D digital models of existing milling tools in Manufacturing Research Lab. (MRL) using the stereo camera scanning system available in that lab. Analyses of the captured images will be carried out using the measurement systems' sofware to determine some impotant geometrical parameters of these tools.
