Innovative V11 Features “Set New Standard for Ease of Use and Productivity”.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C - Geomagic announces Geomagic Qualify 11, the latest version of its computer-aided inspection (CAI) software with a new Automation Designer that dramatically reduces the time it takes to create new inspections. Geomagic Qualify 11 will begin shipping on May 4 and is making its public debut next week in the Geomagic booth at Control 2009 in Stuttgart, Germany.
“The most demanding inspections can be designed and automated within minutes using Automation Designer, thanks to its drag-and-drop visual interface,” says John Lockhart, Geomagic Qualify product manager. “There’s no need for macros or any special programming. When something changes in your inspection workflow, be it the reference model or additional analysis that you want to perform, you can easily edit the process you have already designed.”
Easily migrate and test different inspection processes
With Automation Designer in Geomagic Qualify 11, users can define multiple reference models and inspections in a single file. This makes it easy to switch between different as-designed models and inspection routines to visualize “what-if” scenarios and to experiment with different nominal geometry.
Using the new Migrate Automation Wizard, existing inspection processes can be easily transferred between reference models for re-use when part designs change. Users simply load the new part and transfer their inspection steps, then Migrate Automation Wizard guides them in resolving areas of the inspection process that need further attention.
Geomagic Qualify 11 also includes options for constructing new features that enable users to simulate tab and slot alignment and define midpoints. With version 11, Geomagic Qualify and Studio are built from the same core technology, ensuring consistency among shared functions and file compatibility between the two applications.
Setting a new standard
“Geomagic Qualify 11 sets a new standard for ease-of-use and productivity in high-precision manufacturing inspection and design analysis,” says Scott McAfee, vice president of engineering at Level 3 Inspection, a leading provider of CAI services and systems for the aerospace industry. “The new automation features will save us time and enable us to quickly adapt inspection routines to new parts and applications, allowing us to deliver higher value to our clientele.”
Available in multiple languages
Geomagic Qualify 11 ships with both 32- and 64-bit editions on the CD, and supports English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese languages. Customers with active maintenance can download the Qualify 11 upgrade from Geomagic’s portal: https://portal.geomagic.com.
