Geomagic® announced the latest addition to its Geomagic Qualify 3D inspection software product line – Geomagic Qualify Probe™.
This software takes advantage of Geomagic Qualify technology to work with a range of hard probe precision measurement devices from hardware partners such as FARO, Creaform, Hexagon, Nikon and many others. With this software, you can use touch probes, portable CMM arms and similar equipment to quickly measure physical parts and compare them with CAD models to determine manufacturing quality. Quality control applications include first-article and in-line production inspection, as well as supplier management.
This user-friendly software is affordable and powerful. Building on lessons learned from the built-in probing capabilities in Geomagic Qualify, the software includes redesigned device and human-machine interfaces for fast and intuitive use. Its fast and automated reporting tools are also key features. It includes CAD data importers for the native formats of CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, NX, SolidWorks and Creo Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/ENGINEER) at no additional charge.
In addition to interactive, real-time deviation analysis for fixturing and quick checks for out-of-tolerance conditions, measurements collected and evaluated can be published through integrated reporting tools, including 3D color-mapped models to illustrate deviations over an entire model, evaluation of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) callouts, profile curves, and user-defined annotations. Reports published in PDF format can include a live 3D model so that everyone in the supply chain can easily comprehend the inspection results.
Using the same user interface and with file format compatibility, you can easily migrate to Geomagic Qualify to add full scanning and point cloud handling capability.
The Geomagic Qualify Probe software will be released in early November, and pre-registration for a free trial version is available at Geomagic’s web site.
