The dataset refers to the measurement of axes of Ti-6Al-4V cylindrical surfaces obtained by lathe turning. The machined surfaces were measured using a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and the axis of each cylinder was derived from the CMM measures.

The dataset consists of a MAT-file including the CMM measurements and a Matlab function “LoadData.m” to extract and convert the data into Cartesian coordinates.

All the details about the dataset can be found in:
