EmailFacebookGoogle+LinkedInTwitterShare

New to CREAFORM’s Vxelements 6.3 is the ability to perform an automatic pre-alignment between your scan and CAD model for inspection. One of the most powerful things about inspection software is the ability to perform fitting calculations and with this new functionality, extracting critical feature information is that much easier.   Prior to release 6.3, CREAFORM used a point-pair method for creating best-fit alignment. Essentially the user would pick a minimum of 3 points that are in the same location […]

Traditional CMM (coordinated measuring machine) measuring systems and the associated software are usually too slow to meet the very short cycles required for batch inspection. Moreover, they create a bottle neck in the operation workflow with every part flowing through one QC operator. When this happens, a […]
