PolyWorks|Inspector™ Tip

When measuring a large number of parts daily, with the requirement to save a copy of each scan to disk, you can end up encountering storage issues. You can reduce the size of your exported polygonal model files by up to 60% with InnovMetric’s PQK format.

  2. In the Save as type list box, choose InnovMetric PQK Files (.pqk).
