VXinspect: Dimensional inspection software module

VXinspect is an intuitive and powerful 3D inspection software designed for manufacturing companies conducting first article inspection (FAI) or quality control. Directly integrated into VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform and application suite, VXinspect provides the simplest integration of probing and scanning measurement capabilities.

The combination of Creaform technologies with VXinspect offers the ideal solution for quality control in shop floor conditions. The software features all the functionalities required by pre-production control or when setting up a high-efficiency measurement sequence to inspect multiples parts. With its intuitive interface, it is the best solution for all inspection workflow with no compromise on measurement quality and GD&T requirements.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

To meet customer needs for simplicity and a plug-and-play solution, VXinspect fully integrates with all of Creaform’s technologies and centralizes information for optimal use. 

CAD import

CAD import

VXinspect, a dimensional inspection software for quality control, supports CAD import of IGES, STEP files, allowing direct measurements comparisons with CAD models to better understand the parts’ manufacturing defects. 

Multiple-Measurement mode

Multiple-Measurement mode

VXinspect is the first software to seamlessly integrate both single-point touch probe and non-contact measurements into a unique and intuitive software interface.

Available tools: Probing | Scanning | Import mesh supported

Alignment

Alignment

Before starting the dimensional inspection process, the position and orientation of the object in space is of utmost importance. It ensures more accurate results from data acquisition up to the final inspection report.

Available tools: Entity selection | Best fit | Datum targets 

Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T)

Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T)

VXinspect’s sophisticated algorithms and calculation methods offer an accessible way to apply GD&T principles and practices to the inspection project, even for users without extensive experience with GD&T notions.

Available tools: Form and orientation tolerance | Profile and localization tolerance | Datum reference frame (DRF) construction using geometric counterpart | And more!

SIMPLIFIED AND POWERFUL SCANNING AND PROBING WORKFLOW WITH VXINSPECT

Pre-Production 

Each production start up comes with different process issues. In many cases, some prior adjustments have to be made to be fully in control of the manufacturing process. During this search for problems to solve, 3D measurements tool users need a quick way to compare measured geometry with designed one. VXinspect offers the simplest workflow for quick Part-to-CAD inspection.

In-Production

Once the manufacturing process is under control, first article inspection (FAI) or production part approval process (PPAP) need to be performed. VXinspect is ideal to simply build the inspection program for such operation. It can also be used to control critical dimensions at various stages of the manufacturing process. Users can repeat the same measurement sequence several times to follow evolution of specific parts and thus prevent future problems.
