Creaform has announced, at the beginning of its 20e anniversary, the launch of VXelements 10 – now with a new cloud licensing system, new 3D mesh and entity edition functionalities, multiple CAD imports and compatibility of the MetraSCAN-R 3D scanners with collaborative robots (cobots).
VXelements, now an integrated 3D measurement software platform that includes several acquisition and application modules – VXscan, VXprobe, VXshot, VXmodel, VXtrack, VXinspect, VXscan-R – goes all the way back to 2005 with version 1.0 of VXscan, the first software module developed by creative form.
“This new software offering sets new standards in metrology, inspection and reverse engineering. We wanted to deliver a unique, differentiated and advanced set of tools that works in full synergy with the entire fleet of Creaform 3D measurement solutions,” says François Lachance, Product Manager – Software at Creaform.
VXelements 10 now includes a new cloud licensing system implemented to facilitate license sharing between users of a particular company. It’s now easier to maximize software investments by increasing collaboration among team members, making collaborative projects easier and faster.
VXscan 3D acquisition and optimization module
The improved VXscan module reveals improvements to the ‘Merge Scan’ function that provides improved computer performance, new target alignment and the ability to preserve the original data.
VXmodel Scan-to-CAD module
The VXmodel scan-to-CAD software module now includes a flexible entity editing tool, a new section feature (resize section plans, section distance and angle with ‘arbitrary’ entities).
VXinspect Dimensional Inspection Module
End users can now import and use multiple CAD models in VXinspect for added flexibility. This makes it easier to work with symmetrical objects and saves time when processing mounting parts.
Vxscan-R Digital Twin Environment Software Module
Automated metrology is now more accessible than ever before. VXscan-R is part of Creaform’s offering that uses collaborative robots (cobots) to streamline scan cell deployment and leverage Creaform scanning technology using offline programming software.
