InnovMetric Software Inc., the global leader in smart 3D metrology software solutions, today announced the 2020 release of PolyWorks|DataLoop™, a major upgrade to its data management and digital connectivity solution. Featuring a redesigned architecture based on the industry standard Microsoft SQL Server™, PolyWorks|DataLoop™ 2020 provides a robust and scalable 3D measurement data management solution that optimally handles the vast amount of data produced by a manufacturing organization’s 3D measurement activities. Thanks to a powerful and comprehensive search engine, it delivers effortless enterprisewide access to metrology data and results, eliminating the need to find information manually. It also offers user permissions management to control access to their metrology data. PolyWorks|DataLoop 2020 offers all the functionalities that an IT team expects from a professional data management solution, ensuring a smooth integration within existing enterprise processes.
“The phenomenal rise in the use of 3D measurement data in recent years has led to data management complexities and the urgent need for more collaborative processes,” said Marc Soucy, President of InnovMetric. He added, “We heard from frustrated customers about the difficulties of accessing 3D measurement data files, the performance issues that occur with large file transfers, the lack of robustness arising from manually enforced naming conventions, and the difficulties in general of collaborating on 3D inspection projects. PolyWorks|DataLoop is the first data management solution on the market that fully addresses all these issues.”
Robust 3D measurement data management
PolyWorks|DataLoop is a scalable data management solution that stores inspection and reverse-engineering projects, their revisions, and 3D measurement data in a centralized database that is easily replicated and backed up. PolyWorks|DataLoop automates the handling of project files and folders to eliminate the multitude of manual time-consuming operations that may end up corrupting the data. It speeds 3D dimensional analyses and large datasets into reviewers’ hands while minimizing the use of network and storage resources, thanks to intelligent caching strategies, minimal data transfer techniques, and minimal disk space use.
Data access made easy
PolyWorks|DataLoop unleashes the true power of 3D measurement data and results through fast and easy access, as users:
- Identify and index the key pieces of information in their parts and processes
- Find and open projects and pieces by searching them based on indexed properties
- Use powerful filtering tools to narrow the search results and easily find the data they’re looking for
The days of browsing for a file or folder are history, as instantaneous access to real-time measurement data and results becomes the new normal. In addition, PolyWorks|DataLoop allows customers to set up a restricted portal for external collaborators and to manage project permissions to protect templates from being overwritten.
Digital connectivity that boosts teamwork efficiency
PolyWorks|DataLoop enriches and dynamizes the processes and human interactions of the teams that capture or need access to 3D measurement data, as users enterprisewide can:
- Review data through a Web or mobile interface
- Share 3D measurement data through clickable hyperlinks
- Monitor and analyze 3D measurement results in real time through customizable dashboards
- And review, edit, and measure inspection projects concurrently
PolyWorks|DataLoop 2020 is available through InnovMetric’s Master Distributor reseller network.
