PolyWorks® 2014 Delivers the First Metrology Grade Laser-Scanning Platform on the Market

QUEBEC, QC, CANADA, April 15, 2014 – To mark its 20th anniversary as an independent, hardware-neutral, 3D metrology software company, InnovMetric Software Inc. is proud to announce the release of PolyWorks 2014, a groundbreaking version of its universal 3D metrology software platform. PolyWorks 2014 brings to the market an industry first: a real-time quality meshing technology that will transform laser scanning. Additionally, it offers new and enhanced functionalities that deliver significant productivity gains, as well as two new major algorithmic capabilities.

Real-time quality meshing

With its new real-time quality meshing technology, PolyWorks 2014 introduces the first systematic and objective metrological approach to laser scanning. PolyWorks can now create polygonal models of digitized parts in real time, as well as compute quality metrics that reveal ineffective scanning methods. Laser scanning operators are then able to visually review the areas that do not meet predefined quality criteria and scan those areas until quality metrics reach their prescribed values. The real-time quality meshing technology enhances the quality and precision of all laser scanning measurement sessions, eliminates the variations of point cloud measurement quality and precision that occur from operator to operator, and accelerates learning for a new laser scanner operator.

New and enhanced functionalities

PolyWorks 2014 is also packed with new and enhanced functionalities that deliver significant gains in productivity and facilitate the deployment of PolyWorks solutions on the shop floor, such as:

  • The Geometry Controls interface to add, configure, and review geometry controls for all measurement objects
  • New table and annotation editors and an automatic reporting workflow that dramatically accelerate the production of a part inspection report
  • Guiding points for feature probing to improve measurement repeatability
  • Device position uncertainty analysis to control the global accuracy of large-volume measurement projects
  • Speech recognition to invoke typical measurement commands and macro scripts by talking to PolyWorks

New algorithmic capabilities

Finally, PolyWorks 2014 introduces two new major algorithmic capabilities: datum targets to construct GD&T datum reference frames, and fitted sketch dimensions that capture design intent when reverse engineering a part.

"PolyWorks 2014 is directly in line with our corporate mission of maximizing the benefits of 3D measurement technologies for industrial manufacturing organizations. By providing real-time feedback about quality, PolyWorks will deliver an immediate return on investment to all its customers operating laser scanning devices," stated Marc Soucy, President of InnovMetric Software.  Visit www.innovmetric.com for details.
