How to use measurement triggers

Measurements are triggered as an instrument's probe crosses the boundary of the specified surface.

Using Perimeters in Inspire

A Perimeter is a region to scan from an automated scanning device. Inspire has added Perimeter features to help plan for future inspections.
  • Inspire 2022.2

    Inspire 2022.2 brings numerous memory, performance, and functionality improvements.

    To improve performance, the way you scan and store cloud data is completely rewritten.

    Expect increased speeds for scanning and processes with point clouds by parallelizing operations, making algorithms more efficient and avoiding unnecessary copy of data under the hood.

    In production, this means you can scan a part with 5 – 7 scan passes in about 15 seconds. Where it used to take about a minute to process the data into a full scan, it now takes 20 seconds.

    Many operations are two to three times faster, including Alignments and Feature extractions.

    Some operations are up to 10x faster, including scanning large files, and selecting and deleting large sections of cloud data. Deleting sections of a point used to take twenty seconds, now take only two.

    Major improvements include:

    • To improve performance, the way you scan and store cloud data is completely rewritten
    • Improved speeds for scanning and operations with point clouds by parallelizing operations, making algorithms more efficient and avoiding unnecessary copy of data under the hood.
    • Many operations are 2 – 3 times faster, including Alignments and Feature extractions
    • Some operations are up to 10 times faster, including scanning large files, selecting and deleting large sections of cloud data

     

  • Inspire 2022.1
    • New functionality enabling a password security upgrade. Password protect job files and lock features.
    • Comparison enhancements – add a comparison that reverses the direction / magnitude of deviations, and a comparison to save colorization settings and changing the default colorization selection.
    • New features including the addition of a construction method for calculating a diameter and location where two cones intersect, updates to analysis tools, offsetting along a normal, instrument jumping, cloud to cloud alignments, added GD&T support for ASME and ISO, and more, all designed to continue making Inspire more robust and easier to use.
  • Inspire 1.4.41.0
    • Extract features from multiple CAD faces and partial surfaces
    • New display options for dimensions and the graphic window
    • Added a new feature intersector operation

Enhanced CAD feature extraction

Extract features and organic surfaces using multiple CAD faces. Inspire more intelligently visualizes nominal features to match CAD faces.

New Intersector feature

The Intersector feature now lets Inspire users create multiple intersection points from two features.
  • Inspire 1.3.154.0
    • Create features and dimensions from individual cross sections
    • Enhanced feature callout visualizations and value display logic
    • Added functionality to the ATS600 interface and updated camera views

Further cross section analysis

Inspire now allows users to perform more in depth analysis of a single cross section. Extract features and create dimensions directly from the cross section view.
