What’s new in PolyWorks® 2018
Universal Inspection Projects
Deploy ONE inspection project
PolyWorks 2018 brings 3D metrology hardware interoperability to the next level.
It empowers users to create and deliver shop-floor-ready inspection projects that are directly playable with all portable and CNC CMM 3D measurement devices.
Maximize the use of all your 3D measurement devices and minimize the risk of operator errors by creating and embedding multiple piece measurement templates within a single inspection project!
With piece measurement templates, preconfigure an inspection project to:
Universal 3D Metrology Workflow
Perform all inspection tasks using a common workflow
Enhanced alignment toolbox
PolyWorks 2018 reference target and datum target alignment techniques are more powerful and more complete:
Balance part deviations using the integrated iterative alignment with reference targets bound to constructed features.
Universal Digitizing Hub
Interface with all 3D measurement devices
Smart collision avoidance for CNC CMMs
PolyWorks 2018 adds new measurement sequence fixers to the powerful real-time collision analysis technology. These tools allow inserting automatically computed Go to Position locations that modify the CMM measurement path in an optimal way as to prevent detected potential collisions.
Robust measurement sequences for CNC CMMs
PolyWorks 2018 offers intelligent solutions for measuring deformed, incorrectly aligned, or deviated parts without operator intervention:
Enhanced usability and performance
The improved discoverability, ease of use, and performance of tools in PolyWorks 2018 promote valuable gains in user productivity:
