Inspect Parts by Scanning Without Using CAD Models

When a part is inspected with the help of its CAD model, the CAD model is used throughout the project to align the part, extract features, and produce pass/fail results. When inspecting a part by scanning without using a CAD model, you go through those same steps obtaining measured-to-nominal deviations but using a different toolset.  

In just 15 minutes, you will discover how to: 

  • Extract measured geometry from a point cloud/polygonal mesh and control dimensions, such as form errors 

  • Align the part using coordinate systems created from the measured geometry 

  • Report deviations and pass/fail statuses by defining nominal values for controls
