New Play Inspection Tool in PolyWorks® V12.1 Adds Automatic Guided Sequences to DirectReplay™

QUÉBEC, QC, CANADA, November 19, 2012 — InnovMetric Software Inc. announced today that a new Play Inspection tool, which automatically builds a guided, step-by-step sequence to capture 3D datasets of a new piece, was fully integrated into Phase II of DirectReplay, released in version 12.1 of PolyWorks.

Phase I of DirectReplay, which focused on handling point-cloud-only measurement tasks, simplified the inspection of multiple pieces with its Play Extraction tool and automatic project update capabilities. This allowed users to directly measure and inspect a new piece from an existing inspection project without recording operations, programming nor scripting. Now, with Phase II of DirectReplay, the Play Inspection tool brings automation to the inspection of multiple pieces, since it provides a guided sequence that is automatically built in real time and handles point-cloud digitizers and probing devices.

The power of the new Play Inspection tool lies in its ability to:

  • Automatically propose a logical order of measurement (based on device positions, data alignments, object tree view sequence, and geometric constraints).
  • Trigger the right measurement method for each object (laser scanner plug-in, file browser, or probing device).
  • Manage multiple device positions.

What's more, with Play Inspection, the sequence and the project are always in sync, making for ultimate flexibility for users to modify their projects at any given point in time.

"The release of version 12.1 brings an empowered DirectReplay technology that greatly simplifies multipiece inspection," said Marc Soucy, president of InnovMetric Software. "PolyWorks 12.1 becomes the first 3D metrology solution to deliver a remeasurement process that's automatically generated and guided, and in which point-cloud digitizers and probing devices are managed in one integrated workflow."

Version 12.1 of PolyWorks was released on November 16, 2012.
