Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s PC-DMIS 2018 R1 measurement software allows users to convert AutoFeatures to points or use the measured hits for new constructions and dimensions, available for plane, circle, and cylinder AutoFeatures. By converting each hit to a vector point, optimize path can be used to enhance the order of point measurement, reducing the number of probe tip changes and overall measurement time.

Support for Q-DAS Traces enables analysis of PC-DMIS data. The QuickSet control allows users to use both QuickFeature and GD&T Selection and still have the ability to modify measurement strategies.

QuickFeature measurement enables users to create multiple circles and cylinders, optimized for bolt hole patterns or whenever surfaces contain multiple features of the same size and shape. This edition also introduces improved flush and gap AutoFeature workflow for point cloud inspection. This workflow makes it faster to extract multiple flush and gap AutoFeatures from an existing cloud of points object.
