Hexagon Metrology has released PC-DMIS 2010, the latest version of its CAD-based metrology software.

PC-DMIS, which is developed by Wilcox Associates, a Hexagon Metrology company, is a range of software products covering a variety of metrology hardware platforms and solutions sold under the Enterprise Metrology Solutions (EMS) banner.

This latest release rolls out enhanced versions of PC-DMIS CMM, PC-DMIS Portable and PC-DMIS Vision software.

The release introduces products such as PC-DMIS Planner and the Datapage+ suite of products.

It also includes new hardware categories; for instance, the integration of PC-DMIS Portable with the new Leica TDRA6000 Total Station is a new interface.

The core product of the EMS suite is PC-DMIS CMM, which is used primarily on automated co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs).

It offers many new functional and productivity improvements across the board, according to the company.

A new feature allows users to select animation path lines and either insert a safety move at the point of selection or to jump to that command location in their part program.

This feature is suitable for users who have very large part programs and want to easily navigate within them.

PC-DMIS 2010 offers enhanced support for the new Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GDandT) ANSI Y14.5 2009.

A new Comment functionality allows users to display pictures, videos or text to aid the operators in executing a measurement routine.

Other new measurement capabilities include total integration with the supported non-contact 3D laser line sensors.

New capabilities for non-contact sensors include the enhanced visualisation of all parameters for programming laser-based 3D geometric features, as well as the re-execution of laser-based measurement routines.

PC-DMIS 2010 has been enhanced to handle the large point clouds that are commonly gathered with these types of sensors.

The latest release is now available for shipment with Hexagon Metrology brands Brown and Sharpe, DEA, Leitz, Leica Geosystems and Romer.

It can be retrofitted as a software upgrade for most other CMM makes and models.

Existing customers with current software maintenance agreements are eligible for a free upgrade to PC-DMIS 2010.
