The Software PolyWorks delivers a universal 3D metrology workflow
PolyWorks is a leading universal hardware-independent 3D metrology software platform. PolyWorks fully supports probing and laser scanning on stationary CNC CMMs, and delivers a truly universal 3D metrology workflow that will allow users to operate any type of portable metrology and CNC CMM measurement device within a common framework, from a single software module, and using similar tools and methods.
Portable metrology and CNC CMM metrology devices used to be operated in very different ways. Offline CMM programming and online CNC measurements were traditionally performed in different modules using different tool sets. With PolyWorks, the definition of what constitutes a universal platform takes on an entirely new meaning: a universal hub that interfaces with any type of 3D metrology measurement device, and offers a universal workflow for performing all inspection tasks. With PolyWorks you can realize universal projects. Thanks to the universal 3D metrology architecture of PolyWorks, only minimal changes will need to be made to a PolyWorks inspection project so that it can be used with multiple hardware platforms to optimize object measurement methodologies and adapt them to different measurement principles. As a result, PolyWorks opens a new era for universal inspection projects and device interoperability, ensuring total flexibility for customers to select the appropriate measurement devices for their needs and maximize the return on their 3D metrology investments.
This innovative end-to-end approach will significantly lower the total cost of software ownership for industrial manufacturers as it eliminates metrology workflow silos, decreases the cost of training, facilitates broader collaboration between teams, ensures consistency in measurement results, and increases workforce mobility.
