Universal Dimensional Analysis Platform

PolyWorks|Inspector™ is a 3D dimensional analysis and quality control solution to evaluate manufactured parts and molds, measure tooling or parts, diagnose assembly issues, provide assistance with high-precision assembly, and much more.

PolyWorks | Inspector package

One software and many applications: avoid being stuck with a single software for a single device, this usually leads to knowledge hoarding from the trained user. With PolyWorks Inspector, your users share the collective knowledge of one software platform applied to many measuring devices; this gives you plenty of flexibility in all areas of your production.

All Inspections with the same workflow

  • Same planning process: Either portable or traditional CMM share the same building blocks.
  • Measurement sequences: Assist the user with the play inspection functionality to execute the step-by-step inspection.
  • Dynamic results: With updatable reports and the Control Reviewer, information presents in a straightforward way that is always up to date.

Unify 3D measurements
into one hub

  • Direct hardware plug-ins: Operate all portable measuring probes within Inspector.
  • Direct interfaces: Connect different 3D scanning devices with direct hardware plugin-ins or file importers.
  • CMM Connectivity: Measure directly with most of the major brands of CNC CMMs in the industry or use I++ as a bridge to other compatible devices.
  • Manual Gauges: integrate measurements done with manual gages or visual checks to keep information centralized and consistent.

Deploy inspections projects compatible with any 3D measurement device

  • Measurement templates: Use the templates to inspect piece-by-piece consistently.
  • Predefined projects: Set a series of measurement templates within a single inspection project.
  • Device continuance: adapt sequences automatically from one type of measuring device to another.

FULL TOOLBOX FOR DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS
AND QUALITY CONTROL

At the core of PolyWorks|Inspector is an advanced inspection engine with certified mathematical algorithms, parametric data, and extensive visual and acoustic feedback for the end-user. You can extract specific information from the 3D measured data, automate the inspection process when inspecting a lot of pieces, and obtain results to present them in a visual way that enables digital collaboration.

3D ALIGNMENT FLEXIBILITY MATTERS

Best-fit for surface and cross-section

Best-fit for surface and cross-section

Either surface or a profile (cross-section) can be constrained to rotation, translation, or by defining a tolerance zone.

Object’s best-fit measurement

Object’s best-fit measurement

Use features, datum targets, surface points, and edge points with weights and axial constraints for better results.

Multiple device position alignment

Multiple device position alignment

Align 3D measurement device while compensating for changes in temperature, and use bundle adjustment to maximize the global accuracy.

MEASURE ALL THE REQUIRED DIMENSIONS

Image
Universal data extraction
Choose the extraction of dimensions from point clouds, probed points, or polygonal meshes. Also, get nominal dimensions from a CAD model or a measured part.
Image
Color maps for deviation analysis
Visualize surfaces, boundary, cross-section, or thickness deviations between the measured part and the nominal.
Image
Feature-based dimensioning

A feature is any circle, plane, cylinder, etc. and you can measure the position, orientation, and size.  You can also do measurements between features.

Image
Smart GD&T

Smart GD & T engine updated to the latest ASME and ISO standards; includes advanced DRF, material condition, datum modifier and tolerance zones.

Image
Flush & Gap, and Profile gauging
Evaluate design feature lines and fillets with advanced dimensions; measure sheet metal’s radius, angle, bending, sharpness, flush, and gap.
Image
Airfoil gauging
Special tools focused on advanced features for compressors, fans, and turbine blades; ranging from simple edge radius to area calculations.

AUTOMATE THE QUALITY CONTROL PROCESS

Multipiece data management

Multipiece data management

Measure batches of parts with one or many 3D measurement devices while keeping them in a single project folder.

Play Inspection tool

Play Inspection tool

Singnificantly reduce human errors by pre-defining inspection sequences here you can guide the user and trigger actions automatically.

Macro scripting

Macro scripting

Automate almost any task and operation with macros. Almost any click has its own command that can be recorded and the modified into small or very complex macro programs. Extend the functionality of the existing tools with your own using macro scripts.
