Whether you are casting, milling, molding or stamping, you can rely on PolyWorks to provide a complete solution for your process. The PolyWorks software suite is available as a complete package or - with regard to the two main applications - as a point cloud inspection or reverse engineering package.

PolyWorks®, developed by InnovMetric Software Inc, Canada, is a solution for high-end point cloud inspection and reverse engineering applications.

  • Features & Benefits
    PolyWorks/InspectorTM (for point cloud inspection) allows you to:
    • Use high-density point clouds of digitized prototype parts & assemblies to quickly identify deformations and to fix problems in the earlier stage of the manufacturing process
    • Approve your manufacturing process by fully inspecting your first-assembled products
    • Monitor the production cycle by automatically measuring the wear of tools and quickly detecting any abrupt degradation in product quality
    • Verify the compliance of final manufactured and assembled products through sample check inspection using automated techniques

    PolyWorks/ModelerTM (for reverse engineering) allows you to:

    ≡ Generate manufacturable class A polygonal models

    • Transform aligned point clouds into highly accurate polygonal models using PolyWorks' unique tolerance-based adaptive meshing technology
    • Reconstruct perfect polygonal features from imperfectly digitized geometry
    • Apply all typical CAD operations directly to polygonal models and prepare these models for a wide variety of manufacturing applications such as milling, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, inspection, CFD & FEA, digital review and so on

    ≡ Create smooth and logical NURBS surfaces easily editable in CAD software

    • Use automatic feature-tracking tools to quickly create curve networks. Curves can also be extracted interactively using only one mouse click
    • Constrain the automatic surfacing process to predefined curves in order to create more logical curve networks
    • Control the rigidity of the fitted NURBS surfaces, mimicking a sheet metal material for getting super-smooth surfaces without ripples
    • Optimize your subsequent efforts in the downstream CAD application by minimizing the number of control points and patches, increasing the smoothness of patches, and easily creating perfect feature curves
