PolyWorks laser scanner plug-ins provide access to the most powerful point cloud solution in the market for laser scanner systems, which includes capabilities for:
In addition, InnovMetric has completely integrated probing capabilities in order to provide a fully-integrated solution to those who use laser scanners on articulated arms. PolyWorks users can probe all common geometric features and use these to align a part in the CAD coordinate system for reverse engineering in body coordinates or comparing laser scan data to a CAD surface in real time. “InnovMetric has taken great care in its probing integration to abide to the CAM2 probing philosophy for Faro users, and to the PowerInspect probing philosophy for CimCore users” said Marc Soucy, president of InnovMetric. “ Any contact probe user from either of these two communities will immediately feel at home with the PolyWorks probing implementation”.
In a parallel fashion several industry leaders are currently in the process of developing plug-ins for PolyWorks. InnovMetric will announce remarkable new tools for laser/probe systems in a few weeks.
About InnovMetric Software
Founded in 1994, InnovMetric pioneered the market for point cloud inspection and polygonal manufacturing software solutions. InnovMetric is a privately-owned company which enjoys an enviable position as the market leader in point cloud processing software in the automotive and aeronautic industries. Today, PolyWorks licenses are at work daily in more than 30 countries, providing users such as BMW, Boeing, Daimler-Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Lockheed-Martin, Peugeot, Porsche, Rolls Royce, Toyota, and Volkswagen with the most complete, accurate, and robust 3D point cloud processing software solution on the market.
InnovMetric’s flagship product, PolyWorks, is a powerful software solution that uses high-density point clouds to measure and control the quality of castings/dies/molds, and to approve manufacturing processes through prototype, first-article, manufactured, and assembled parts inspection. PolyWorks offers a complete toolset for comparing forms and profiles (part-to-part and part-to-CAD), and includes the most complete GD&T analysis capabilities on the market, as well as the widest array of soft gauging tools (linear, radius, flush & gap, thickness, etc.). All quality control tasks can be completely automated and performed by one click of a mouse using PolyWorks’ powerful scripting language.
PolyWorks also offers a comprehensive software solution for creating accurate and smooth polygonal models and NURBS surfaces from high-density point clouds. Preferred by automotive design studios worldwide, PolyWorks is the only software solution that has demonstrated the capability of creating class A polygonal models for stringent polygonal manufacturing applications such as 3- & 5-axis milling, aerodynamic simulation, and digital review. PolyWorks also offers a powerful rapid surfacing methodology that delivers the fastest reverse-engineering cycles on the market.
