PolyWorks | PMI + Loop™
The model-based definition solution. Enable collaborative measurement planning between your product engineering and manufacturing teams.
About PolyWorks | PMI + Loop™
PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™ is an innovative model-based definition (MBD) solution. It defines 3D measurement objects and their dimensions, along with setting up the inspection report and feature controls within your existing CAD package.
PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™ works seamlessly with PolyWorks|Inspector™, providing a digital collaboration platform that updates the MBD of inspection projects and obtains stage models when changes are made to the design geometry.
Complete CAD-based MBD solution for 3D metrology
3D measurement object and dimension definition
Define 3D measurement objects and construction geometry, together with their characteristics and controlled dimensions, in conjunction with the CAD design geometry and its native GD&T.
Manufacturing feedback ready
Format specialised characteristics to acquire feature location, surface & edge deviations and tie them to assembly, tooling or datum coordinate systems.
Report-ready bill of characteristics
Prepare the report layout with tables and 3D views/captures and set characteristic labels to match CAD drawing to the inspection report.
Interoperable with PolyWorks®
Import CAD-based MBD and the CAD model into your PolyWorks® inspection projects and start measuring.
Automatic inspection project updates
Adjust the CAD design and PMI+Loop will automatically update the corresponding MBD and report layout, then send the updated designs to PolyWorks|Inspector™ to integrate the latest modifications.
Ideal for parametric and stage modelling
Any changes to the master model geometry are recorded and the MBD and report layouts are updated accordingly by PMI+Loop. See these alterations automatically modify the manufacturing stage models.
PolyWorks® MBD import within CAD platform
Send MBD changes created by your measurement team in PolyWorks | Inspector™ directly to your CAD package. PMI+Loop automatically applies these to the design geometry.
