Workshop 1

Unlock the full potential of the PolyWorks® universal3 platform

Having access to a 3D metrology software platform that interfaces with all 3D measurement devices, that offers a universal workflow for performing all inspection tasks, and that allows re-using the same inspection project with any 3D measurement device, brings tremendous value to your metrology processes. Discover how to unlock the full potential of the key tools and concepts at the core of the PolyWorks universal3 platform that can greatly simplify your daily metrology tasks.

In this one-hour workshop, learn how to:

  • Integrate custom measurements and add qualitative controls to an inspection project.
  • Perform a piece inspection with both portable metrology and CNC CMM devices in the same project.
  • Prepare universal inspection projects containing piece-measurement templates adapted to all your 3D metrology devices.
Workshop 2

Avoid costly CNC CMM equipment damage with PolyWorks®

An important consideration for creating efficient CNC CMM measurement sequences is defining collision-free measurement paths. With PolyWorks, discover how to avoid costly equipment damage by detecting and fixing potential collisions between the moving parts of a CNC CMM, the measured part, and its fixture when creating or editing a measurement sequence.

In this one-hour workshop, learn how to:

  • Leverage CAD models with the real-time collision analysis tool to identify problematic probing and laser scanning paths, online and offline.
  • Use the powerful sequence fixers to review and intelligently correct issues detected in the sequence editor.

Networking Pavilion
