First in the line of tower modules is a 2" interlocking system that can be built both vertically and horizontally. Cubes added horizon- tally can be turned to any angle and locked securely. The modular system is intended to maximize the CMM work envelope without interfering with probe travel. A "building block" design enables users to determine the height of the setup. A staggered hole pattern adds flexibility for work- holding. The modules enable building up the setup both vertically and horizontally. Horizontal cubes can be secured at any angle. Preconfigured systems include several inter- changeable components: an adjustable base, 2" × 2" cubes, a 4" blank spacer block, and 2" and 4" posts that connect the system and provide pivot points. Each cube has 10 ( 1 / 4 -20) holes per side for flexibility in holding positions and a 3 / 8 -16 threaded center hole that allows cubes to be added horizontally. Highly accurate components are designed with male/female locating features and are made from black anodized aluminum.
