INUS Technology has announced the next major release of its CAD-intelligent inspection software, Rapidform XOV3. With this release, Rapidform includes support for every major portable CMM device on the market, the company says. The new LiveInspect system offers an automatic measurement guide for inspecting parts with a probe. After defining dimensions and tolerances on a nominal model, the software guides the operator through measuring a part and then generates a report automatically.
In addition to the new probing capabilities of LiveInspect, Rapidform XOV3 has been updated to offer near real-time inspection results. Calculations are up to 10x faster than before, making the process of aligning, deviation analysis and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) faster, the company says. In real world tests, the process of setting up inspection routines from dense point clouds takes less than half the time in the new release. It can also open native files from SolidWorks, PTC Creo (Pro/E), Siemens NX, CATIA V4/V5.
The solution also provides a real-time preview of scan pair geometry via simple mouse-over for instant verification, and features improved reporting using customizable templates.
