A Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) is a device used for measuring the geometric characteristics of an object. CMM's are either controlled manually by an operator or via computer. Measurements are defined by a probe attached to the third moving axis of this machine. Probes may be mechanical, optical, laser, or white light, amongst others. A machine which takes readings in six degrees of freedom and displays these readings in mathematical form is known as a CMM.
