Class A Polygonal Modeling & Fast Surfacing for
PolyWorks/Modeler is a comprehensive reverse engineering software
solution for creating accurate and smooth polygonal models and NURBS
surfaces from high-density point clouds. Preferred by automotive design
studios worldwide, PolyWorks/Modeler is the only reverse engineering
software solution that has demonstrated the capability of creating class A
polygonal models for stringent polygonal manufacturing applications such as
3-axis & 5-axis milling, aerodynamic simulation, and digital review.
PolyWorks/Modeler also offers a powerful rapid surfacing methodology
that delivers the most usable NURBS surfaces in CAD software such as
CATIA and UG
The World's #1 Point Cloud Inspection Solution in the
PolyWorks/Inspector is a powerful software solution that uses
high-density point clouds and contact-probe datasets to control the quality
of parts and tools at every phase of your manufacturing process. Today,
major automotive and aeronautic OEMs and tier-one suppliers worldwide use
PolyWorks/Inspector as their standard point cloud inspection
for prototype, first-article, manufactured, and assembled parts
PolyWorks/Inspector allows you to:
The measurement process is based on the principle of optical
triangulationand benefits from the precision of light. The automatically
generated data images are analyzed and evaluated within seconds by digital
image processing. The consistent explitation of redundant information covers
the result statistically. Without direct contact to the object and being
materially independent, the 3D-digitizing of arbitrary object, such as work
pieces, models, moulds, plastics, human body parts, component damage, etc.
can be realized for a variety of applications e.g:
Importing Objects: Data Objects & Reference Objects
- Use high-density point clouds and contact-probe datasets of digitized
prototype parts & assemblies to quickly identify deformations and to
fix problems in the earlier stage of the manufacturing process.
- Approve your manufacturing process by fully inspecting your
- Monitor the production cycle by automatically measuring the wear of
tools and quickly detecting any abrupt degradation in product quality.
- Verify the compliance of final manufactured and assembled products
through sample check inspection using automated techniques.
Data objects consist of set of digitized points. PolyWorks/Inspector
supports datasets produced by all high-density 3D digitizers, articulated
arms with contact probes, laser trackers, and CMM. PolyWorks/Inspector
also offers several plug-ins that allow direct scanning and probing from
within its user interface.
Reference objects describe a surface and can consist of a NURBS-based
models or polygonal mesh. PolyWorks/Inspector supports CATIA V4 and V5,
IGES, PRO/E, STEP, STL, UG, and VDA-FS file formats.
