About Verisurf Software
Verisurf Software, Inc. is a measurement solutions company, committed to delivering advanced surface analysis, quality inspection, assembly guidance, and reverse engineering. Verisurf products and processes are vital to maintaining a digital thread between design, engineering, manufacturing, and finished part validation. Based on a powerful CAD platform, Verisurf is committed to digital Model-Based Definition (DPD) (MBD), open standards, and interoperability with all coordinate measuring machines and CAD software. Verisurf solutions help manufacturers produce higher quality products in less time.
Verisurf 2018 is the latest release of the popular measurement software for automated quality inspection, reporting, scanning, reverse engineering, tool building and assembly guidance. The new release includes many new features, all of which are centered around three key user benefits: Universal CMM compatibility, quick programming shortcuts and productivity features, and increased probing speed.
Universal CMM compatibility
All CMMs, including previously closed legacy systems, are now open to Verisurf users; streamlining productivity, training and ensuring manufacturing enterprise compatibility. Expanded Verisurf CMM support does not require controller upgrades or added software, the legacy CMM data is translated allowing the operator to take full advantage of the Verisurf user interface, data management and reporting functionality. This allows legacy CMMs to immediately become relevant once again as part of an enterprise-wide measurement plan.
Programming shortcuts and productivity features
Verisoft features automatic feature recognition, which allows any CAD feature to be selected and immediately added to an inspection plan; quick measurement of torus shapes for parts such as O-rings; ability to use the probe shaft for measuring thin edges, such as sheet metal; improved mesh editing and added mesh Boolean controls for combining and dissecting meshes with intersecting geometry.
Management reporting is a key deliverable from Verisurf Software; added features in 2018 now make producing and delivering reports quicker and easier: Dynamic Datum Reference Frame (DRF) allows the user to create datum alignments in the report manager using measured features; Auto DRF is accessed through the Report Manager Speed Menu and quickly sets up the most common reports utilizing single data reference frames; New drag and drop custom report builder is ideal for creating reports for measurement projects.
Increase in I++ CMM probing speed
Feature and Analysis objects have been synchronized for smooth, fast execution, using Verisurf VDI 3.43.18 or newer. This delivers an exponential increase in automatic probing speeds, reducing inspection time.
The Verisurf User Interface (UI) continues to evolve in alignment with popular Windows standards. Easy to read icons and enhanced “tooltips” streamline workflows and make applications easy to navigate and learn.
Verisurf Software Modules
Built on today’s most powerful, robust CAD system.
Verisurf CAD reads all native CAD file formats including IGES, STEP, CATIA, Unigraphics/NX, Pro-E, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, AutoCAD, AutoDesk Inventor, and numerous others. This flexibility means that you can easily work with any CAD model – solid, surface or wireframe.
The metrology tool for feature based part inspection.
Interfacing in real-time with any measuring device including stationary and portable CMMs, laser trackers and scanners, and various others, Measure lets you easily measure features from precise single points to point clouds. Set unique GD&T constraints, see the device graphically displayed on your screen, plus smart tools automatically recognize and display features while you are measuring.
Fast, easy CMM programming and operation.
Verisurf AUTOMATE programs and operates CMMs faster, easier and at a lower cost. It is built on a 3D CAD measurement platform that automates all types and brands of coordinate measuring machines with an intuitive 3D experience, visual object oriented programming and open standards that increase freedom of choice while reducing costs.
Comparing inspection data to the nominal CAD model.
Whether it is from CATIA, UG, Pro-E, SolidWorks or another CAD system, Verisurf Analysis lets you import the nominal CAD model and compare it against both internal and vendor inspection data. Analyze points-to-points, points-to-curves, points-to-surfaces or points-to-meshes and instantly generate deviation reports.
Real-time, model-based inspection and assembly.
Known as the Virtual Gage, Verisurf Build displays deviation with the probe’s movement as you inspect the part in relation to the nominal CAD model. After quick alignment to the CAD model, simply measure error in the manufactured part with Build’s live, intuitive interface. Literally see part-to-model deviations, coordinates and assigned IDs all in real-time during inspection.
Powerful, versatile reverse engineering software.
Re-engineer CAD surfaces, use AutoSurface to reverse engineer complex surfaces or use mixed modeling to blend STL meshes, surfaces and solids in one design. Working with measured data from any measuring device, Verisurf Reverse automatically creates surfaces, features and planar, grid or radial cross sections on machined parts to create precise CAD models.
Fast, efficient laser projector programming.
Built on Verisurf’s powerful CAD/CAM system, Verisurf Laser Projection allows users to simply select CAD geometry and create laser projection programs from any native CAD file format including IGES, STEP, CATIA, Unigraphics/NX, Pro-E, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, and numerous others.
Validates CAD models to prevent manufacturing errors.
Verisurf Validate provides precise CAD model translation validation by comparing the authority CAD model to the translated CAD model, enabling manufacturers to quickly identify any translation error. Verisurf Validate helps reduce scrap and rework from bad CAD translations and complies with Boeing D6-51991 “Quality Assurance Standard for Digital Product Definition”.
Programmatically access Verisurf functionality
Available with the release of Verisurf 2017 – the Verisurf Software Development Kit (or “SDK”) provides a flexible programming environment specifically designed for creating customized dimensional metrology applications that enable manufacturing automation.
Plug-&-play cross communication for leading CMMs.
Universal CMM is a software-only solution that enables seamless communication between Verisurf AUTOMATE and popular CMM and head controllers. Just click on the CAD features you want included in your AUTO inspect plan and run your CMM.
