Model-Based Definition Metrology Software – 2022 Version Released
Verisurf has announced its new 2022 software release. Verisurf 2022 expands on the popular universal measurement software for automated quality inspection and reporting, scanning, reverse engineering, and tool building.
New performance enhancements and added productivity features make Verisurf 2022 the only measurement and inspection software in its class to offer one solution that supports the entire manufacturing enterprise. Verisurf’s use of Model-Based Definition, with the CAD model as the design authority, simplifies and automates inspection planning and enables improved process control. Verisurf is the only metrology software built on a complete 3D CAD platform, supporting all CAD formats and all portable arms, laser trackers, scanners, and manual and programmable CMMs.
“From the very beginning, Verisurf was designed and built to work the way our customers do, enabling flexibility and powerful functionality to support their workflows. We engage with our customers, and their feedback is what drives the ongoing development of the Verisurf platform and makes the most diverse and powerful metrology software for the manufacturing enterprise,” said Ernie Husted, President, and CEO, of Verisurf Software, Inc.
Verisurf 2022 has many new and powerful features to support all measurement applications and devices, including portable, laser scanning, manual, and programmable CMMs.
Verisurf 2022 Performance and Productivity Features Include:
Auto-Generate Path for Features – In Automate mode, the CMM path is automatically generated as features are added to the plan.
Find or Select Features from the Graphics Window – Quickly search, highlight, and “go-to” features in the Automate Manager and graphics window.
CMM Collision Detection – Simulate CMM paths to detect collisions and perform corrections with dynamic clearance-point editing.
Additional Feature Extraction Options – Use feature zone display and pre-selection of features to fine-tune the extraction of data from the inspection plan.
Enhanced Data Extraction – Pre-filter data using CAD entities enables multi-step alignment and data extraction to automate cross-section analysis.
MBD to Plan – Automate inspection plan creation by automatically applying associative tolerances and feature control frames to the plan and reports.
Model-Based Definition (MBD) for Meshes – Create intelligent meshes that can be used to inspect additive-manufactured parts. Extends MBD analysis to meshes, including thickness analysis on measured meshes.
E57 File Support – Read and write massive datasets from large volume terrestrial scanners in E57 format.
Block Segment Point Cloud – Simplifies editing of massive datasets by segmenting data into manageable blocks facilitating extraction, fitting, analysis, and meshing.
Fast Point Cloud Processing – The real-time scanning acquisition rate now exceeds two million points per second.
Clipping Plane for Scanning Devices – Real-time point-cloud clipping provides cleaner scan data, resulting in less editing to remove unwanted data.
Projection Filter for Point Clouds and Meshes – Enables rapid removal of erroneous data using filter zones based on the CAD geometry.
2D Cross Section Analysis – Visualize the profile-deviation outline and tolerance bands in the graphics window.
Quick Drift-Analysis – Quickly determines whether the part, tool, or device has moved. The most common causes for movement are temperature change, harmonics, and physical contact.
