A number of Industrial reference components manufactured by grinding to achieve tight dimensional tolerances. In this paper, we present an uncertainty budget of a reference forty-tooth #Curvic measured using an accurate Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) in a temperature-controlled laboratory. A number of measurements conducted on Curvicto assess measurement repeatability and reproducibility. Expanded uncertainty budget evaluated from twenty-one Influencing factors, giving8.7 µm (7.1 µm from Type A) and 11 µm (9.6 µm from Type A), respectively, for repeatability and reproducibility test (k >2). Measurement uncertainty due to steady-state thermal effects is 2.2 µm. An adaptable model is presented to evaluate transient thermal effects, a factor often neglected in measurement uncertainty. Thermal time constant uncertainty associated with transient thermal effects is evaluated u(τ)= ±398 s, which corresponds to ±15 % of thermal time constant expanded uncertainty, u(τ)= ±2570 s.
