The latest addition to Geomagic’s Qualify 3D inspection software product line , Geomagic Qualify Probe, is able to work with a broad range of hard probe precision measurement devices from hardware partners such as FARO, Creaform, Hexagon, Nikon and many others. Users can use touch probes, portable CMM arms and similar equipment to quickly measure physical parts and compare them with their CAD models to determine manufacturing quality.
Geomagic Qualify Probe software includes redesigned device and human-machine interfaces for fast and intuitive use. Fast and automated reporting tools are also a key feature of the new software.
Geomagic Qualify Probe includes CAD data importers for the native formats of CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, NX, SolidWorks and Creo Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/ENGINEER) at no additional charge. Rus Emerick, Schneider-Electric, said. “The direct CAD importers now mean our inspection professionals can work directly with the MCAD models from design engineers, without having to purchase expensive additional options or asking for files to be converted to vendor-neutral formats.”
