New York Times quotation
The quotation at the beginning is a placeholder; hopefully someone can replace it with something more substantial (and not quoted). modify 12:45, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

- DCC stands only for direct-continuous-current
- "coordinate measuring machine (CMM)" lose the elipses
Is the image ok?
In the background of the image there are the words "Prof. Dr. Jens Kirchhoff", etc. Does this pose a copyright issue? modify 12:47, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
Renishaw Plc should be invited to help form the CMM section. They have a special relationship to almost all CMM manufacturers, mainly through the development and supply of their probe and measurement systems. I believe they are the best source for information and for the rapid development of this section if their coperation can be acquired.
Help Help, this page needs images!!
please, can somebody in metrology somewhere in a lab, the BIPM, NPL, Anywhere just take a photo of a CMM.
Attempting an "expert" collaborative cleanup
As a member of the CMM industry, and an active participant in CMM related forums, I have requested a collaborative review of the article. Please leave a message here if you would like information on where this discussion will take place (it will be exteral to wikipedia), leave a note HEREVulture19 (talk) 16:42, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
Summary of changes made 31 Jan 2009
Created new introduction section and copy/pasted everything past the first introduction paragraph. Took section out that deals with new probing (it's not all that new anymore, anyway), but moved it to another subsection for now. I am removing all references that define a CMM as having a touch trigger probe (contact probe) for a variety of reasons: more probing options are available and relevant, prior to new TT technology, most probes were hard probes anyway, etc.
I want to work out a rewrite of the introductory paragraph shortly.
MASSIVE PICTURE AT THE BEGINNING.
DMIS merge discussion
I think that for convenience sake, the DMIS article be moved here. I can't see that article ever being significantly expanded unless we start getting into the minutiae of code examples, and it would be easier to maintain here, the only place it's relevant, anyway.
Lack of citations
Especially in the alleged list of manufacturers, citations are required. Wikipedia is not a trade directory. If these people make this thing then a full citation is required. I'll wait for a short while and then consider a radical pruning operation here. Even the blue links require citations. Fiddle Faddle (talk) 07:15, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
- I am starting by losing the redlinks in the list of manifacturers. Fiddle Faddle (talk) 22:45, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
- I'm NOT a fan of the last edit. Redlinked or not, they are manufacturers. Instead of removing the redlinks in their entirety, just remove the wikilink and keep the company name. In the interests of fairness, I think that until this issue is resolved, I am going to comment out the ENTIRE list. This will give us the opportunity to consider proper formatting, "qualification" for inclusion, and even whether the list belongs.
- In fact, why don't we just make a separate article, List of CMM Manufacturers, and remove it entirely from the article, just add a link to the list? vulture19 02:13, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
- I dont agree with this there are many other CMM used langauges past and present, ie: HTbasic,Calypso, Measuremax,CMM manager. this is just a few that I know off. Dmis may also go eventually as new languages emerge. I think all in all this is a unwise misinformed view and panders only to Dmis code when there a many thousands of CMM's that dont use this code.188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:38, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
- I edited your comment for formatting. The problem with a list is that we may have to meet notability requirements for inclusion.vulture19 03:10, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I undid a revision as I thought there was too much that wasn't quite correct with it, e.g. the assertion that gantry type CMM's are 4 feet or more and that bridge types are "usually" air bearing. There were other things in there, too. vulture19 04:10, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
