What’s new in Polyworks 2021

POLYWORKS|INSPECTOR™ 2021

EXTENDS​ THE ANALYSIS OF CURVED SURFACES​

Use the powerful surface defect detection technology to quickly display surface anomalies in 3D scans by way of a color map, without using a CAD model

  • Detect bumps, scratches, dents, and cavities in curved or planar surfaces by highlighting curvature anomalies ​
  • Visualize just the critical defects by setting tolerances​
  • Click a defect area to display deviations from the theoretical surface for quick and powerful reporting

Benefit from the new Line Profile GD&T tool that meets ASME and ISO standards, and offers controls with a full or partial datum reference frame

  • Analyse single, partial, and multi segment 2D profiles of freeform sheet metal cut-outs
  • Inspect entire or partial 2D sections of extruded or lofted parts
  • Review form and positional errors of complex sections and cut-outs using powerful visual aids to ensure the fit of mating components

Improve your inspections with these enhanced curve-analysis tools:​

  • Extract flush & gap measurements on assembled vehicles even if certain areas cannot be measured by extrapolating measured data using CAD models
  • Assess more precisely the flatness of high-precision contact surfaces, such as flanges, using the local flatness tool

TRANSFORM YOUR MEASUREMENT OPERATOR EXPERIENCE​

Increase the efficiency and repeatability of your 3D measurement operations thanks to technological aids added to our measurement toolbox

Ensure digital gauging traceability by capturing and automatically storing a mixed reality photo when measuring a dimension with a digital gauge​

Display digital readouts, axial deviations, and guidance arrows as holograms in the operator’s view to help precisely position a machine, a tool, or a fixture​

DEPLOY POLYWORKS AS YOUR STANDARD​
OFFLINE CNC CMM SEQUENCING SOLUTION

CNC CMM users will save even more time thanks to the revolutionary intelligence added to our innovative assisted sequencing technology and have more possibilities with the extended universality of our offline solution:​

  • Let the assisted sequencing technology determine if multiple tool orientations are needed to measure an object or to avoid fixturing and other artefacts​
  • Measure an object in multiple steps, increasing the flexibility and power of your measurement sequences with faster run times​
  • Enjoy our assisted sequencing and collision avoidance and analysis technologies on Renishaw controllers​
  • Access Hexagon and Zeiss inferred probe heads and laser scanners in our catalogues when creating a sequence offline​
  • Export our CNC CMM measurement sequences to a standard DMIS file to accelerate sequence creation in legacy CMM software

HANDLE LARGE PROJECTS EFFICIENTLY​

Accelerate working with large inspection projects thanks to new tools for finding, selecting, and editing objects​

  • Accelerate single or multi-object selection in a dropdown menu by selecting objects in the 3D Scene or Tree View or by typing a few characters of an object’s name to filter down the number of objects shown in the menu’s list​
  • Access directly the Apply, Close, Next, and Previous buttons of Properties windows, regardless of the scroll position
