Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has launched PC-DMIS 2018 R2, the latest edition of the world’s most popular measurement software. This is the second of two major releases scheduled for PC-DMIS in 2018, with continued service pack updates to ensure maximum reliability of the platform.
PC-DMIS 2018 R2 introduces a new reporting workflow, making it easier than ever to create customized reports with simple drag and drop and an intuitive slideshow-style interface. A new QuickPath tool expands on existing QuickFeature functionality to simplify feature creation with a safe path. PC-DMIS 2018 R2 also introduces the ability to add run charts from qs-STAT into the PC-DMIS report. Improved Probe Utility allows users to mark favorite tip configurations, create required tip angles by simply clicking on CAD, and buy replacements with Shopping Cart tools; a new e-Store is coming soon to hexagonmi.com. Improvements in the use of lasers, specifically for path creation and offline programming, are also featured in the new release.
User experience has been improved with a smaller XactMeasure dialog window that consumes less space in the Graphics Display Window and improved FCF editor design with new icons for defining or adding datums and second single segment or composite FCF. Slideshow, the real-time dimensional reporting tool, is now free to use under a PC-DMIS Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA). Inspect 3.2 now gives more control over which routines are accessible, has improved search filters for routines and reports, and displays the last execution time and duration for each routine.
Other notable improvements within PC-DMIS include a new 2D Radius Gauge for quick checks on the go, added MoveInspect XR8 support, improved QuickFixture workflow with snap-to-grid capability, NX 12 DCI and Catia v5 R27 DCI & DCT support, added support for the HP-L-5.8 sensor, improved Q-DAS support, added Measurement Strategy Editor parameter sets, and Vero SMIRT integration.
PC-DMIS 2018 R2 is available to download immediately. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
