HMI PCDMIS 2017 R2The launch of PC-DMIS 2017 R2 is the second of two major releases scheduled in 2017, says Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. This latest version features the Slideshow for INSPECT software, which the company says allows users to create customised layouts with inspection results populated during measurement.

Other improvements include better native mesh resolution from import to visualisation, and an improved outlier filter to better handle noise on small arc segments and at the end points of a line, which the company claims requires less manual analysis and rechecking by the programmer. CAD file import is now multi-processor aware, and a new CAD toolbar puts all the tools for CAD import and GD&T selection in one place.
