2D drawings and 3D inspection

Verisurf Software and InspectionXpert Corporation demonstrated an integrated solution that lets customers choose between using 2D drawings or 3D CAD models to effectively produce and implement automated 3D measurement plans and first article inspection reports.

Verisurf Software interfaces with and drives CMMs and 3D scanners, and includes Verisurf SOLIDS, a complete 3D solid modeling application, as well as productivity features designed to streamline data capture, analysis and reporting.   InspectionXpert provides powerful data extraction, ballooning, and reporting tools for quickly capturing and interpreting dimensional information from 2D drawings.
Quality inspectors can efficiently handle the common occurrence of inspection dimensions and notes that are only available in a 2D drawing, such as PDF or TIFF files, but no longer need to spend hours typing inspection information into Verisurf from a 2D drawing in order to program their measurement plan.

InspectionXpert quickly balloons the 2D drawing, creating the unique IDs for the Verisurf measurement plan, and the powerful OCR extracts inspection information from the drawing. Inspection information is then published to Verisurf where the inspector can easily match the drawing dimension to the 3D model, create the measurement plan and begin the 3D inspection. When the 3D inspection is complete, the results can be exported from Verisurf in a variety of formats or imported back into InspectionXpert to create standard or custom inspection report formats for AS9102 and PPAP.
