PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™

The model-based definition solution for collaborative measurement planning between your product engineering teams

PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™ is an innovative Model-Based Definition (MBD) solution that allows you to define 3D measurement plans associative with CAD design geometry within a single digital authoring tool, your native CAD platform. Fully interoperable with PolyWorks|Inspector™, it provides a digital collaboration platform to your design, manufacturing, and 3D measurement teams for driving product engineering processes from a single product definition.

CAD-based MBD for 3D Measurement Planning in Your Native CAD Platform

 


Measurement-ready CAD geometry

Define 3D measurement objects and construction geometry, along with their characteristics and controlled dimensions, associative with the CAD design geometry and its native GD&T.

 


Manufacturing feedback ready

Set up specialized characteristics to obtain feature location, surface and edge deviations, and tie them to assembly, tooling, or datum coordinate systems.

 


Report-ready bill of characteristics

Review, order, and number characteristics, and link them to 3D views/captures of your CAD model which are ready for the CAD generation of 2D drawings and 3D PDFs.

 


Inspection-ready MBD

Import the PMI+Loop CAD-based MBD and the CAD model into your PolyWorks® inspection projects, and start measuring parts.

Digital Collaboration

 

Quick design updates 
for measurement teams

Send new CAD model revisions to the measurement team, and the MBD in their PolyWorks inspection projects is automatically updated.
 

Manufacturing stage
modeling friendly

Modify the master CAD model geometry and PMI+Loop triggers the update of the measurement plan in the derived manufacturing stage models.
 

PolyWorks MBD import
within CAD platform

Import the MBD created in PolyWorks|Inspector directly into your CAD platform and PMI+Loop automatically associates it with the design geometry.
