Seoul, South Korea - June 20, 2008, INUS Technology, Inc., the developer of Rapidform® 3D scanning software, today announced that it will feature its latest inspection software applications at the 19th Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo (DMS) in Tokyo, Japan, June 25 - 27, 2008. At the event, INUS will officially launch Rapidform XOV™2/Verifier. The company will also highlight its newly-released SolidWorks® add-in, InspectWorks™.
Calvin J. Hur, senior vice president of marketing & global sales for INUS, stated, "In the year since the last DMS exposition, we have made massive changes to Rapidform. The latest of these advances is version two of Rapidform XOV, which we will debut at DMS 2008. With its new functionality and automation, Rapidform XOV2 will change the way that 3D scanning quality control software performs. Inspection will be available to designers and engineers, not just dedicated metrologists.
According to Hur, XOV2 uses a "feature-based quality inspection" concept that makes it easier and more efficient to complete part inspections from 3D scan data. The tools and structure of Rapidform XOV2 are designed for professional, metrology-level inspection, yet its work-flow and interface are extremely easy and intuitive, making XOV2 a powerful product even for the occasional user.
XOV2 is metrology software that provides feature-based, parametric inspection history coupled with a 3D PMI interface (Product Manufacturing Information) that imports GD&T information defined in the CAD model. Using a systematic approach that automates the inspection process, XOV2 offers the highest level of repeatability and reproducibility for accurate quality control reports.
InspectWorks, a SolidWorks add-in that was introduced in April 2008, will also be highlighted at the DMS expo. InspectWorks is the world's first application for verification of part dimensions using 3D scan data within SolidWorks. InspectWorks is for designers and engineers with occasional inspection and verification requirements during the product development process, such as first article inspection and process try-out.
In less than 10 minutes, and with minimal operator intervention, InspectWorks produces color map deviation analysis, section deviation analysis and automatic DimXpert™ GD&T calculations. By leveraging the GD&T specifications, InspectWorks provides visual feedback for pass, fail and warning conditions relative to the manufacturing specifications.
INUS Technology will have live demonstrations of XOV2 and InspectWorks, as well as XOS™2 and XOR™2, in the Rapidform booth located in DMS's East 2 Hall (CAD/CAM&PLM/PDM Zone) stand 13-10.
