Title: LASER SCANNED MENU
Abstract:
An improved method and apparatus for controlling a laser projection assisted assembly (20) operation includes the ability to display a menu (34) with the laser projector (22). An operator is able to request the menu be displayed at the operator's location. The menu provides the operator the ability to select from several display options (34). By selecting an icon (36) associated with a desired display option, the operator is able to change the display option at a location remote from the control (24). This is particularly valuable in large laser assisted work assemblies.
