Creaform has launched VXelements 10. It offers 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 comprises several acquisition and application modules—VXscan, VXprobe, VXshot, VXmodel, VXtrack, VXinspect, VXscan-R—traces all the way back to 2005 with version 1.0 of VXscan, first software module developed by Creaform.
Below, discover some of the new features and benefits found in VXelements 10.
A new cloud licensing system has been implemented to facilitate license sharing between users of a given company. It is now easier to maximize software investment by increasing cooperation between team members, making collaborative projects simpler and faster.
VXscan 3D acquisition and optimization module
The upgraded VXscan module unveils improvements to the Merge Scan feature: better computing performance, new target alignment, and the ability to retain the original data.
VXmodel scan-to-CAD module
The VXmodel scan-to-CAD software module now boasts a flexible entity edition tool, a new cross-section feature (resizing of cut plans, cross-section distance and angle with “arbitrary” entities).
VXinspect dimensional inspection software module
End users can now import and use multiple CAD models in VXinspect for added flexibility. This in turn facilitates working with symmetrical objects and saves time when processing assembly 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 using collaborative robots (cobots) to streamline scanning cell deployments, and leverage the best scanning technology using off-line programming software.
At the dawn of its 20th anniversary, Creaform is in full control of its fast-paced development, always looking out for the best interest of its customers, and strives towards the “Never Stop Innovating” motto.
