INUS Releases Inspectworks 2.0 for SolidWorks Users

By DE Editors

INUS Technology has announced the release of Inspectworks 2.0, which provides verification tools for the SolidWorks user. InspectWorks 2.0 is an upgrade to the company’s SolidWorks plug-in based on Rapidform XOV. Design engineers can use InspectWorks along with a 3D scanner to verify that parts are manufactured to specification from SolidWorks. 

Anyone with SolidWorks and the InspectWorks add-in can open a part file and a 3D scan of the object, and see where the part is in or out of tolerance via a deviation color map.  If there are dimensions or tolerances defined for the part, InspectWorks also provides measurements and pass/fail results automatically.

InspectWorks 2.0 now includes multi-core processor support on the current Windows operating systems (32 and 64 bit on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7).

Enhancements to InspectWorks 2.0 include: 

  • Intelligent best-fit where, rather than simply fitting the whole point cloud to the CAD model, the geometric features (e.g., plane, cylinder, etc.) are detected and used to perform alignment.
  • New GD&T measurements have been added to Inspectworks 2.0, including straightness, circularity, line profile, surface profile, and runout.
  • Report editor, enabling the user to define information about the current inspection project, such as part name, part number, serial number, color of pass/fail, etc. Each parameter is reported in a format compliant with the enterprise’s standards.
