Developed to create and optimize programs for CMMs, CimStation Inspection is a 3D graphics simulation and programming tool that's said to be able to shorten the time it takes to program a CMM, boost the machine's productivity, and put an end to program errors and probe crashes.
Available for Windows NT and Unix workstations, the software lets you create CMM programs from CAD data before the physical part exists. CAD models of parts and fixtures can be imported into the software in their native format using direct geometry interfaces. Users can visualize the CMM, probes, parts, and fixtures using real-time 3D graphics, and simulations can be replayed at any speed and viewed from any angle or distance. This tool also lets you develop and verify the inspection sequence in less time than it would take to manually generate the same program.
