Hexagon Metrology (North Kingstown, RI, US) has unveiled PC-DMIS 2015, the newest version of software for the collection, evaluation and management of measurement data. PC-DMIS is the flagship software package for Hexagon Metrology measurement devices and a range of other measurement equipment in the marketplace. This new release offers improvements for the inspection of point cloud data captured during scanning operations. Other enhancements have been developed for the tools, workflow and overall user experience. Improvements include a redesigned execution timer that is more accurate and respects partial execution, improved probe animation to increase offline programming efficiency, and a new QuickGD&T selection that speeds measurement routine building by creating all necessary features, datum definitions and dimensions with a single click. Point cloud tools have been upgraded to provide a simulation of the scan stripe for DCC CMMs, ensuring full target area exposure. The meshing tool now allows real-time data meshing during the scanning process, speeding up reverse engineering projects. Also included in PC-DMIS 2015 is a new cross-section tool, which creates deviation annotations directly in the graphics display for quick reference as well as archive reporting. PC-DMIS 2015 also introduces a new measurement strategy for optical CMMs, which provides measure-as-you-go functionality for measuring features that are too large to fit in the "Live View" field-of-view. PC-DMIS 2015 is now available for download.
