Measurement Software Enables Users to Fill Holes in CAD Models

Verisurf Software Inc. has released the 2017 version of its measurement software for advanced surface analysis, quality inspection, assembly guidance and reverse engineering.

Verisurf Software Inc. has released the 2017 version of its measurement software for advanced surface analysis, quality inspection, assembly guidance and reverse engineering. The new release includes many enhancements and added capabilities. The user interface has been reorganized with updated icons and enhanced “tool tips” to streamline workflows and make applications easier to learn. Programmers can now create custom apps using any common programming language with the rollout of Verisurf SDK. Power Surface enhances the software’s CAD modeling capabilities, enabling it to fill holes or fit CAD surfaces through point clouds and meshes with fine-tuning control and high fidelity.

The Verisurf SDK enables 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.

Power Surface fills holes in CAD models with arbitrary boundaries and fits a CAD surface through point clouds or meshes. The module includes an extensive set of fine-tuning controls that provide the user with total flexibility over resulting surface profiles and boundaries. It even displays statistical metrics characterizing the quality and fit of surfaces created.

The software also 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 colors 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.
