INUS Technology, Inc. (Seoul, South Korea), developer of Rapidform 3D scanning software, will debut InspectWorks at Control 2008 (April 22nd to 25th) in Stuttgart, Germany. InspectWorks is the first SolidWorks add-in for quick, dimensional inspection from 3D scan data.
InspectWorks is for designers and engineers using SolidWorks who need fast initial confirmation that the part in front of him is compliant with the dimensions in the CAD model. No extensive training is required; users will feel right at home with the SolidWorks look and feel, and the wizard-style interface makes it simple to perform CAD-to-3D scan comparisons.
In minutes, the user receives visual feedback via a deviation color map to know if a part is within or out of tolerance, says the company. In addition, InspectWorks produces section deviation analysis and automatic geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) results for each part. Results are listed in tabular format that can be combined with color map images of each part and callouts in an inspection report.
Other key features of InspectWorks include one button alignment of scan data to CAD via best-fit or GD&T datums; CAD-to-part deviation mapping with section deviation analysis and Color Map Deviation Analysis; automatic DimXpert GD&T calculation with Go/no-go visual reporting; and easy inspection reports in Excel format.
It built on Rapidform technology, with proven accuracy.
InspectWorks is compatible with all 3D Scanners.
Visitors to Control 2008 can view InspectWorks and see recent advancements in Rapidform XOR/XOV/XOS at Hall 1, Stand 1630.
