Broomfield, CO - April 21, 2009, Spatial Corp., a leading provider of 3D development components for engineering, design and manufacturing software, delivers product manufacturing information (PMI) for INUS Technology's newest point-cloud inspection software release, Rapidform® XOV/Verifier™2. Rapidform XOV2 utilizes Spatial's 3D InterOp with Manufacturing Option to deliver 3D PMI-ready professional metrology-level inspection for its manufacturing customers. The product provides high-quality CAD and PMI translation from CATIA V5, Pro/Engineer Wildfire, and Siemens NX.
Ongoing pricing pressure, reduced delivery schedules and higher quality standards, are driving the need for change in inspection processing. Spatial is working closely with its industry partners to identify unique solutions to address these challenges. Spatial's high-quality CAD translation and semantic PMI support provide the foundation for development partners to bring differentiated solutions to market.
The ability to work with native PMI data and CAD files improves accuracy and eliminates the need for redundant data entry delivering up to a 20% reduction in man-hours in the inspection planning process. By automating this part of the inspection process manufacturing suppliers can better compete with improved product quality, reduced delivery times and reduced costs.
"Rapidform XOV2's ability to import native GD&T annotations (PMI) is a major advancement for inspection planning and part validation. Spatial's high-quality CAD translation components have been used in our products for many years," stated Calvin Hur, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Global Sales of INUS Technology. "When we planned native PMI translation, Spatial was the natural choice. Their 3D InterOp with Manufacturing Option provides all the information our customers need."
