Complete Dimensional Analysis and Quality Control Toolbox

At the heart of PolyWorks|Inspector lies a powerful inspection engine with parametric data handling, mathematical algorithms certified by PTB, and extensive visual and audio feedback capabilities. It allows users to extract meaningful information from their measured 3D data, automate the inspection process when more than one piece is measured, and structure the presentation of measurement results to facilitate enterprisewide digital collaboration.

Always get the alignment right

Surface and cross section best-fit

Best-fit measured surfaces and cross-sections to their nominal definition,with the option of constraining in rotation, translation, or within a tolerance zone.

Measurement object best-fit

Construct your alignment from features, datum targets, surface points, or edge points, and use weights and axial constraints to optimize the results.

Multiple device position alignment

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

Universal data handling

Extract measured dimensions from point clouds, polygonal models, or probed points, and nominal dimensions from a CAD model or a measured part.

Deviation analysis using color maps

Obtain surface, boundary, cross-sectional, or thickness measured-to-nominal deviations, and analyze them through a color map display.

Feature-based dimensioning

Measure a feature’s diameter, position, or orientation, or distances and angles between two features, in 2D or in 3D, and configure the dimensions’ display intuitively.

Smart GD&T

Benefit from a smart GD&T engine based on the latest ASME and ISO standards, with advanced DRF, material condition, datum modifier, and tolerance zone capabilities.

Profile and Flush & Gap gauging

Evaluate advanced dimensions on fillets, design feature lines, and sheet metal part assemblies, such as radius, angle, bending, sharpness, flush, and gap.

Airfoil gauging

Extract advanced features on fan, compressor, and turbine blades to control and analyze dimensions, such as edge radius, thickness, length, width, angle, and area.

Multipiece data management

Measure multiple pieces using different 3D measurement devices, and store them in a single project folder or an online data management solution using an optimal format that minimizes disk space usage.

Play Inspection tool

Use the powerful Play Inspection and Sequence Editor tools to automate measurement workflows by ordering and triggering operations.

Macro scripting

Add macro scripts to your measurement workflows to apply proprietary techniques, provide special feedback, or interconnect to other systems.

Control views

Organize projects containing hundreds of dimensional and GD&T controls into small and logical groups of controls, with individual controls tied to specific alignments and coordinate systems.

FAI

First Article Inspection Reports

Quickly publish an AS9102 and PPAP-compliant First Article Inspection Report by measuring a piece from the first production run and transferring the results automatically to Excel using PolyWorks|ReportLoop™.

Statistical Process Control (SPC)

Assess the repeatability and predictability of your manufacturing processes with multipiece statistics automatically calculated for object dimensions and surface deviations.

Measurement System Analysis

Design and carry out repeatability and Gauge R&R studies and publish results in elegant, content-rich Excel templates using PolyWorks|ReportLoop™.
