InnovMetric PolyWorks Software joins the wide range of oﬀers of a Polish manufacturer of 3D scanners, SMARTTECH3D. PolyWorks is a universal metrology software platform that is designed for processing and analyzing three-dimensional data. SMARTTECH3D’s oﬀer includes four PolyWorks software models—Inspector, Modeler, Talisman and Viewer.
PolyWorks Inspector is software used for quality control, dimensioning, diagnosis and prevention of problems in production. The software additionally guides the operator through the entire measurement process and supervises the quality of the collected data.
PolyWorks Modeler is a comprehensive reverse engineering software that allows you to detect characteristic CAD elements such as curves, parametric surfaces and prismatic elements from digitized models. They serve as a starting point in professional CAD modeling, the company says.
The third model of Software form Innovmetric is PolyWorks Talisman and it is designed for users who want to operate 3D measuring devices away from their computers. It is a ﬂexible solution available for mobile devices that remotely controls the operation of PolyWorks and provides feedback to the operator.
Thanks to the free PolyWorks Viewer, 3D measurement specialists can share their PolyWorks Inspector projects throughout the company, enabling team members to extract the information they need from the measurement database.
Innovmetric’s PolyWorks software was created to maximize the beneﬁts of 3D measurements. The results obtained using SMARTTECH3D scanners are fully compatible with PolyWorks software. The Polish manufacturer of 3D scanners also recommends using the latest MICRON3D green stereo scanner together with PolyWorks software to create a reliable system for quality control or reverse engineering, the company says.
MICRON3D green stereo is an optical measuring machine that uses two monochrome detectors, which allows reprodution of the structure of the scanned surface. In addition, the new DDS (Dual Direction Stripes) projection method means that the stripes are now displayed vertically—as in previous models, but also horizontally, which is new. The combination of stereo measurement and DDS projection ensures accuracy of scanning results, fewer errors and noise reduction. The solid construction and carbon ﬁber housing are resistant to shocks and temperature changes, and HEPA ﬁlters protect the 3D scanner from even ﬁne dust.
