A patent-pending graphics/CAD engine designed for multipart inspection links several measurement files to a single CAD file. The software lets users deal with entire CAD files instead of slicing them into more manageable sections. An advanced CAD translator supports IGES, VDA, Catia V4 and V5, Unigraphics, Parasolid, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro-Engineer, and Inventor. It includes advanced feature measurement, measurement and alignment wizards, visual "home-in" guides, guided CAD-to-part comparison (Learn/Execute), SPC and graphical reporting, basic scanning, and portable and stationary CMM compatibility.
