PolyWorks|Inspector™ Training

Planning and executing CAD-based inspections using CNC CMMs


This 3-day training allows metrology operators, technicians, and engineers, who are already familiar with PolyWorks® through the use of portable metrology devices, to perform the inspection of their own parts using CNC CMMs and tools found in PolyWorks|Inspector™. More specifically, it aims at creating measurement plans and executing measurement sequences with CNC CMMs.


  • Trainees are familiar with their CNC CMM and its related equipment, including calibration, component usage and operational parameters (best practices), performance, as well as maintenance and care.
  • Trainees must have successfully completed a basic training for portable metrology or have experience operating a portable metrology device with PolyWorks®.
  • Trainees must have basic knowledge of metrology and be able to read engineering drawings.
  • Trainees must have basic computer skills on Windows operating systems.


  • Create tools, reference spheres, and tool changers. Specify tool changer ports.
  • Create and calibrate tool orientations.
  • Locate reference spheres and tool changers.
  • Prealign the part to the CAD model using the CMM Prealignment or a Surface Points alignment.
  • Refine the alignment using the Feature-Based, Best-Fit Measurement Objects, and Datum Reference Frame alignments.
  • Perform the automated measurement of features, surfaces, and comparison points using the CNC Probe measurement method.
  • Acquire scanned data using the CNC Scan method, as needed.
  • Inspect multiple pieces, without programming, using measurement sequences.
  • Fully prepare an inspection project and its measurement sequence, without being physically connected to a device, using the Offline Simulation mode.
