Best fit geometric primitives
A common task in sophisticated 3D data processing is the fitting of geometric primitives into measurement data and the subsequent evaluation of existing deviations.
The OptoInspect3D inline library supports a variety of these primitives. These include lines, planes, circles, ellipses, spheres, cylinders, cones and tori. The approximations can be determined according to different minimization criteria.
In addition to the least squares (Gaussian) method, the Minimum Zone (Chebyshev), Minimum Enclosing (enveloping geometry), and Maximum Inscribing (pen) approximations are also available.
