August 23, 2018 – A new edition of PC-DMIS measurement software is now available from metrology solutions specialist Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division.
PC-DMIS 2018 R2 introduces a new reporting workflow, making it easier to create customized reports with drag-and-drop and a slideshow-style interface. A new QuickPath tool expands on existing QuickFeature functionality to simplify feature creation with a safe path. PC-DMIS 2018 R2 also introduces the ability to add run charts from qs-STAT into the PC-DMIS report.
Improved probe utility allows users to mark favorite tip configurations, create required tip angles by clicking on CAD and buy replacements with shopping cart tools. Improvements in the use of lasers, specifically for path creation and offline programming, are also featured in the new release.
A smaller XactMeasure dialog window consumes less space in the graphics display window. Slideshow, the real-time dimensional reporting tool, is now free to use under a PC-DMIS Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA). Inspect 3.2 gives control over which routines are accessible, has improved search filters for routines and reports, and displays the last execution time and duration for each routine.
Other improvements within PC-DMIS include a new 2D radius gauge for quick checks on the go, added MoveInspect XR8 support, improved QuickFixture workflow with snap-to-grid capability, NX 12 DCI and Catia v5 R27 DCI & DCT support, added support for the HP-L-5.8 sensor, improved Q-DAS support, added measurement strategy editor parameter sets, and Vero SMIRT integration.
