PolyWorks® is the first single-vendor solution that supports all 3D measurement processes and tasks performed by industrial manufacturing organizations, from model-based definition for measurement planning in CAD software, to dimensional analysis, quality control, and reverse-engineering, up to the enterprisewide sharing of 3D measurement data and results.
PolyWorks|InspectorTM is a universal 3D dimensional analysis and quality control software solution to control tool or part dimensions, diagnose and prevent manufacturing and assembly issues, guide assembly building through real-time measurements, and oversee the quality of assembled products by using portable metrology devices and CNC CMMs.
Universal Software Platform
With just one software to master, dramatically reduce your operational costs by increasing measurement specialist competency, eliminating metrology silos, boosting employee mobility, and improving overall teamwork efficiency.
PolyWorks|Reviewer™ is a free PolyWorks|Inspector™ project reviewing solution that empowers manufacturing specialists to analyze 3D measurement results and investigate dimensional issues. They can then share their dimensional analysis conclusions to provide invaluable feedback on manufactured parts and on the performance of the process directly in 3D with customers, suppliers, and stakeholders.
Review inspection projects in a few clicks
Identify the source of dimensional issues by reviewing controlled dimensions and color maps in 3D, first-article inspection reports, multipiece statistics, and more.
Investigate dimensional issues
Search, sort, and filter controls to highlight issues and analyze deviations by changing alignments, magnifying 3D vectors, editing color scales, and more.
Communicate findings enterprisewide
Create additional dimensions and controls, 3D views, snapshots, tables, and reports. Then share the value-added inspection project with decision makers.
PolyWorks|ReportLoopTM is a free Excel-based reporting solution that allows you to integrate smart and updateable 3D inspection data within your preformatted corporate report spreadsheets by directly linking spreadsheet cells to items in PolyWorks|InspectorTM projects.
Integrate Smart 3D Inspection Data
Spreadsheet cells linked to inspection data
Link Excel spreadsheet cells to PolyWorks|Inspector project and piece properties, controls, control views, tables, and snapshots.
Automatic spreadsheet updates
Edit an inspection project reported in your spreadsheet at any time, then let PolyWorks|ReportLoop automatically update the spreadsheet values.
Ideal for enterprisewide deployment
Gain efficiency and savings by deploying a free reporting solution, interoperable with the free PolyWorks|Reviewer™ inspection project reviewing software.
The free PolyWorks|Talisman™ app is a smart remote control solution that allows measurement specialists to operate PolyWorks|Inspector™ from mobile computing devices, through a secure Wi-Fi connection. Work more efficiently by eliminating those back-and-forth trips to the computer. Just take your smart phone or tablet and your 3D measurement device to the parts to be inspected, and control your measurement session from beginning to end.
The Smart Remote Control
Control PolyWorks® remotely
Connect to your probing or laser-scanning device, configure measurement modes and parameters, and launch probing and scanning operations, while staying next to the inspected part.
Get live feedback anywhere
See the 3D Scene display during your scanning and probing measurement session and hear guidance cues in real time, while reading messages and answering questions directly.
Enjoy peace of mind
Experience total confidentiality thanks to encrypted communications, no connection to Internet or any other computer, and no proprietary information stored on the mobile device.
PolyWorks|Modeler™ is a comprehensive reverse-engineering software solution that allows extracting optimal CAD entities—curves, surfaces, parametric sketches, and prismatic features—from polygonal models of digitized parts to serve as the starting point in your professional CAD modeling solution.
The first step in a reverse-engineering workflow consists in transforming digitized point clouds into surface-based polygonal models, also called meshes. Polygonal models are more compact, more accurate, and less noisy than raw point clouds and are directly handled by industrial applications such as milling, 3D printing, and aerodynamic simulation.
NURBS surfaces are lightweight representations of simple features and organic shapes commonly used to replicate and transfer polygonal surfaces built from point cloud data to CAD/CAM software. PolyWorks|Modeler™ offers an intuitive surfacing workflow that cleverly combines interactive curve creation with a next-generation automatic surfacing technology to generate editable CAD-friendly models for your simulation, machining, and design applications.
A fundamental building block in a solid modeling workflow is the parametric 2D sketch. It is used to create solid base features by performing Extrude, Revolve, Sweep, and Loft operations. PolyWorks|Modeler optimizes the extraction of geometric entities on digitized polygonal models to create parametric 2D sketches that serve as the starting point in your CAD solution for generating parametric, associative, and fully editable solid 3D CAD models.
