How long does it take to learn TouchDMIS?
What applications are typical for TouchDMIS?
TouchDMIS metrology software is often used in the following applications:
- Reverse Engineering
- Part Archiving
- Rapid Prototyping
- Engineering Analysis
What metrology standards are supported?
TouchDMIS metrology software is built on 64bit architecture and embraces all of the metrology standards developed over the past decade:
- DMIS Programming Language – ISO 22093
- Tolerancing – ISO 2768
- CAD File Import/Export STEP – ISO 10303
- I++ DME Communication Protocol
Can you retrofit TouchDMIS to manual CMMs?
Intelligent Work Flow
STEP and IGES ﬁle formats are supported as standard and native geometry within TouchDMIS. All major CAD systems can also be imported, as an option.
The full range of coordinate system alignment options is available, including RPS and traditional 3-2-1 alignments.
Program Measurement Plan
The part program is displayed as colored icon program blocks. Each block is defined by a Feature Icon, Action Icon, Feature Label and Statement.
Launch the measurement process and follow it on the graphical display. Feature status is indicated immediately. For toleranced features, TouchDMIS displays actual vs. tolerance results.
TouchDMIS offers a choice of Inspection Reports for real-time reporting. XML, Excel, TXT and PDF exportable output provides ﬂexible reporting.
TouchDMIS supports many different hardware platforms and use cases. From Laser Trackers to fully automatic Coordinate Measurement Machines, TouchDMIS can be your cross platform solution for measurement and reporting.
Fully Supports PH20
TouchDMIS supports the Renishaw PH20 5-axis touch trigger system.
The PH20 combines infinite positioning capability with a full range of TP20 probe modules and extensions to:
- Reduce program cycle time
- Increase feature access
- Reduce the number of stylus changes needed
- Increase CMM volume by reducing space required for head rotations
TouchDMIS supports Analog Scanning using the SP25 or SP80 using UCC Server on Renishaw controllers equipped with scanning capability.
TouchDMIS supports scanning on CAD Slices, plus known and unknown curves.
The highly intuitive, easy to use “Touch Probe Manager” brings configuration and calibration of your probing to the tips of your fingers.
Touch DMIS supports:
* UCC Server Support Required
New in TouchDMIS 5.4:
Large Model files are now easy to manipulate using the all new CAD enhancements in TouchDMIS 5.4.
By using the new “Layer Management”, unnecessary surfaces can be safely moved to separate layers and turned off during the programming or reporting phase.
The new “Projection” feature allows for surfaces to have their projection turned off making them useful semi-transparent reference surfaces but un-selectable so they do not interfere when programing
Other CAD enhancements include:
- Exporting your measurement scene to a Step file
Continuing the TouchDMIS ease of use initiative, the developers at Next Metrology have introduced the “Ghost Probe” concept inside TouchDMIS 5.4 to make programming the PH20 a more visually intuitive process.
The use of Ghost probe makes the visualization and planning of PH20 measurement vectors easy. Change and see PH20 probe positions with the touch of a finger or the click of a mouse.
