INUS Technology, Inc. (also known as Rapidform Inc.), has announced the next major release of its CAD-intelligent inspection software, Rapidform XOV3. With this release, Rapidform XOV becomes a full-fledged contact inspection platform, with support for every major portable CMM device on the market. The completely new LiveInspect system, unique to Rapidform XOV, offers an automatic measurement guide that makes inspecting parts with a probe easy. After defining dimensions and tolerances on a nominal model, the software guides the operator how to measure a part and then generates a report automatically.
In addition to the new probing capabilities of LiveInspect, Rapidform XOV3 has been extensively updated to offer near real-time inspection results. Calculations are up to 10 times faster than before, making the process of aligning, deviation analysis and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) much faster and easier. In real world tests, the process of setting up inspection routines from dense point clouds takes less than half the time in this new release.
It also remains the most CAD friendly inspection software that can open native files from SolidWorks, PTC Creo (Pro/E), Siemens NX and CATIA V4/V5.
“We have significantly improved the user experience in Rapidform XOV3,” notes Calvin Hur, CEO of INUS Technology. “We have optimized our existing calculation engine from top to bottom, making XOV a true pleasure to use. In addition, the new streamlined probing capability in LiveInspect has already been receiving rave reviews from our customers. Right down to the minor details, it is our mission to creatively innovate and unlock the power of 3D scanning for everyone.”
New technologies in Rapidform XOV3 minimize errors, save time and make inspection more flexible, maintaining its reputation as the safer, easier inspection software. XOV is also the only native point cloud software with in-depth GD&T support for every callout in the ASME Y14.5 standard. With this new release, XOV offers several new features to improve productivity and accuracy in the inspection process.
Highlights of the 50+ enhancements include:
- LiveInspect, Rapidform’s new probing interface for more streamlined, pain-free inspection processes
- Performance improvements resulting in huge times savings with calculations that are now up to 10x faster
- Real-time preview of scan pair geometry by simple mouse-over for instant verification
- Improved Reporting using customizable templates to share inspection results faster, more easily and automatically
The latest version of XOV is available in English, German, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Russian and Polish.
