Verisurf Software and select MasterCam resellers worldwide have introduced the 3DGage portable CMM. "The new 3DGage enables manufacturers to quickly implement lean model-based inspection right on the shop floor that yield real improvements in production and quality while reducing costs," said Ron Branch, product manager at Verisurf. "With these impressive benefits it's easy to see why 3D model based measurement systems are revolutionizing manufacturing around the world."
With the new 3DGage, customers can customize a system by choosing from four software configurations, four portable CMM configurations and a variety of probe options, the company says.
Users can align a manufactured part to a 3D CAD model by probing the part to corresponding alignment targets on model. Inspection results are automatically generated in HTML and Excel formats.
The 3DGage, powered by Verisurf X Reverse Engineering software, automates the creation of 3D CAD models from existing parts. Measuring modes include probe measuring and probe scanning combined with point cloud and mesh editing, surface modeling and optional solid modeling.
