Verisurf 2022 Supports Intelligent Inspection with MBD for Polygonal Meshes

Verisurf Software has announced the debut of its new 2022 release at WESTEC 2021. Verisurf 2022 is the latest release of the popular universal measurement software for automated quality inspection and reporting, scanning, reverse engineering, and tool building. The new release builds on Verisurf’s advancements in performance, including the ability to process millions of measured points per second; fast and easy inspection planning; and open platform compatibility, whether in the quality lab, on the shop floor, or in the field.

One of the new features included in the release, Model-Based Definition (MBD) for meshes, enables users to create intelligent polygonal meshes for part inspection. MBD mesh files can now serve as the authority, in place of a CAD model, to inspect additive manufactured parts, saving considerable time and resources. Verisurf is the only measurement software built on a CAD platform and works with any CAD file and all portable arms, laser trackers, laser scanners, and both manual and programmable CMMs.

Verisurf 2022 also includes adaptive scanning for traditional CMMs which senses the location, shape, and form of the component and dynamically adjusts the scan-path to accommodate variations enabling use of a single program to measure multiple part-configurations.

“At Verisurf, we are actively involved with our customers, listening to their feedback and helping them solve measurement challenges. This interaction is what drives our ongoing development of the Verisurf open platform, making us the single most diverse and powerful software to drive all measurement and inspection applications across the manufacturing enterprise,” said Ernie Husted, President, and CEO, of Verisurf Software, Inc.

Verisurf 2022 has many new and powerful features, including the following for Portable Arms and Trackers, and officially will be released December 1, 2021:

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.

Enhanced Alignment Routines: Expanded controls enable interactive modification and update of the alignment settings, resulting in faster alignment and consistent results.

Fast Point Cloud Processing: The real-time scanning acquisition rate now exceeds 2 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.

2D Cross Section Analysis: Visualize the profile-deviation outline and tolerance bands in the graphics window.

Projection Filter for Point Clouds and Meshes: Enables rapid removal of erroneous data using filter zones based on the CAD geometry.

Model Based Definition 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.
