> Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence – Launched the latest edition of measurement software PC DMIS 2017 R2

Great Britain, Cobham – Continued the progress toward a more focused user experience and improved workflow

 

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence launched the latest edition of the world’s most popular measurement software PC-DMIS 2017 R2, . This is the second of two major releases scheduled for PC-DMIS in 2017, with continued service pack updates to ensure maximum reliability of the platform.

PC-DMIS 2017 R2 introduces Slideshow for INSPECT software, allowing users to create unlimited customisable layouts with inspection results populated during measurement.

INSPECT software was first introduced with PC-DMIS 2017 R1 in January 2017 as a simple front-end for PC-DMIS Measurement Routines. The optional Slideshow tab (additional licence required), can display multiple slides of dimensional and informational labels whenever users execute a measurement routine.

Improved the native mesh resolution

The native mesh resolution is improved from import to visualisation. PC-DMIS 2017 R2 makes it easier to apply a colour map to the mesh data object and create annotation points, align mesh data objects to the CAD model or align a mesh to another mesh object. The Vision Live View now displays which features have already been programmed without the need to swap to CAD view, and also offers an integrated focus graph.

PC-DMIS 2017 R2 improves the efficiency of vision features by reducing rechecks caused by contamination. The outlier filter has been improved to better handle noise on small arc segments and at the end points of a line, requiring less manual analysis and rechecks from the programmer. New AICON Optical Scanner support allows for seamless automation of sensor acquisition and PC-DMIS measurement and analysis. CAM models from Vero Software’s VISI can now be directly imported into PC-DMIS, complete with identified ‘Control Points’ that can be automatically converted to measurements. CAD file import is now multi-processor aware, providing faster importing and better experience overall.

Also, a new Virtual Machine dialogue is now organised in the tree view arrangement for easier machine selection, with an added Table Only category so programming can be completed even when the exact machine is not known. And a new CAD toolbar puts all the tools needed for CAD import and GD&T Selection in one place.
