PolyWorks Inspector™ is a powerful industrial 3D metrology software solution to control tool or part dimensions, diagnose and prevent manufacturing and assembly issues, guide assembly building through real-time measurements, and oversee the quality of assembled products by using non-contact point cloud digitizers and single-point contact-based probing devices.
Get the alignment right
Inspecting and analyzing a measured part is only possible if the digitized data is properly positioned and oriented in 3D. Typically, a measured part is aligned to its nominal CAD model to enable the extraction and comparison of nominal and measured dimensions. It can also be assembled virtually to the surrounding mating parts in order to check for interference issues or to analyze flush and gap deviations.
PolyWorks|Inspector offers a broad range of part alignment techniques that let users construct alignments with:
Extract all required dimensions
At the core of the PolyWorks|Inspector workflow is the extraction of measured part dimensions and computing the deviations to their corresponding nominal dimensions. Thanks to the remarkable flexibility integrated into PolyWorks, dimensions can be extracted from measured point clouds, polygonal models built from point clouds, or probed points. Nominal dimensions can also be extracted from a CAD model or a reference measured part.
PolyWorks|Inspector delivers the complete toolbox you need to extract and analyze:
PolyWorks|Inspector also offers real-time guidance to accurately build and inspect fixtures and jigs using single-point measurement devices.
Generate updateable reports
PolyWorks|Inspector provides an outstanding updateable reporting technology that guarantees the exactness of a report and dramatically accelerates multipiece inspection.
Report items, such as 3D scene screenshots and result tables, are automatically updated if a project is altered. You can modify the parameters of a project, or replace the measured data points of the current piece by the data points from a new piece, knowing that the entire inspection report will automatically be updated.
Share inspection results
The PolyWorks|Viewer enables your colleagues, managers, and suppliers to review your inspection projects in 3D.
MULTIPLE PIECE INSPECTION
Simplify the inspection of multiple pieces
Preparing an inspection project for a multipiece inspection task has never been this easy. With DirectReplay™, PolyWorks|Inspector literally does the work for you.
Thanks to the relational inspection architecture of PolyWorks|Inspector, zero teaching is now a reality.
Monitor your process with statistical process control (SPC)
Thanks to its multi-piece project format, PolyWorks|Inspector is capable of automatically computing and updating an SPC database of multi-piece statistics for object dimensions and surface deviations. SPC databases and related analysis tools, including trend charts and statistical color maps, are very powerful tools to diagnose manufacturing or assembly issues, or to approve a tool or a part before production.
