New User Interface, Customizable User Programming, Power Surface and More
Verisurf Software, Inc. announced, today, Verisurf 2017, the latest release of its popular measurement software for advanced surface analysis, quality inspection, assembly guidance and reverse engineering. The new release includes many enhancements and added capabilities. The Verisurf User Interface (UI) has been entirely reorganized with updated icons and enhanced “tool tips” to streamlines workflows, make applications easier to learn, and maintain compliance with the latest Windows standards. Programmers can now create custom apps using any common programming language with the rollout of “Verisurf SDK.” “Power Surface” catapults existing Verisurf CAD modeling power to new heights with the ability to fills holes or fit CAD surfaces through point clouds and meshes with fine tuning control and fidelity previously nonexistent. With this release, Verisurf also punctuates its ongoing commitment to improved scan data management with a spectrum of new tools for managing, displaying, editing, and enhancing scan and mesh data.
There are many added-features and enhancements in the new Verisurf 2017 release, which can be viewed in the product Release Notes found on the Company’s Website; the following is a brief description of the highlights:
New UI - A completely reorganized user interface features all new icons, expanded, pop-up “tool tips”, and improved dialogs consistent with current Windows standards and in a manner that streamlines common metrology workflows and makes Verisurf easier to learn.
Software Development Kit (SDK) – Verisurf 2017 includes a SDK that allows programmers to create custom external applications in any common programming language with programmatic access to Verisurf features and functions. Apps can run locally, over intranets or the public Internet with Verisurf running minimized or as a background process. Verisurf SDK is a powerful capability that can streamline sequences of Verisurf tasks and is ideal for manufacturing organizations that need to inspect large volumes of the same part or assembly on an ongoing basis.
Power Surface - A new Verisurf capability that fills holes in CAD models with arbitrary boundaries and fits a CAD surface through point clouds or meshes. Power Surface includes an extensive set of fine tuning controls for that provide the user with total flexibility over resulting surface profiles and boundaries. Power Surface even displays statistical metrics characterizing the quality and fit of surfaces created. Power Surface vastly improves that ability of operators to accelerate the creation of high-quality, manufacturable, solid models from scan data, mesh data, or derived from existing CAD models.
Scan Data Management Enhancements - Verisurf 2017 includes new, granular settings for the collection and display of scan data, including: Max scan rate, Max scan inspect rate, and Max scan angle. Users can assign color based on the angle between the scanner and the part to assess scan data quality and filter out scan data in areas where point clouds overlap.
“At Verisurf our goal is to provide a comprehensive set of measurement tools so Quality and Manufacturing Engineers can effectively do their jobs. This includes an ongoing commitment to open standards and interoperability for more seamless workflow and the ability to maintain a digital thread between design, manufacturing, and quality inspection,” said Ernie Husted, President of Verisurf Software, Inc. “As always, Verisurf users continue to provide practical insight necessary to help guide our software development.”
The new Verisurf Software functionality and added features are designed to make stationery coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), portable CMMs and 3D scanners more productive for automated inspection, guided assembly, and reverse engineering. Built on a powerful CAD platform, Verisurf Software provides a variety of manufacturing measurement solutions to meet the needs of the quality lab and in-process applications on the shop floor.
