Reverse Engineering Software | SpatialAnalyzer

Supplier: Industrial Measurement Solutions

SA is a highly flexible, instrument-independent, traceable 3D graphical software platform.


Making it easy for users to:

  • Inspect parts
  • Build
  • Analyse data
  • Report
  • Reverse design
  • Interface with virtually any type of portable metrology instrument
  • Automate complex operations to improve measurement and inspection efficiencies.
  • Recommended for laser trackers and laser stations


Full support of all types of portable metrology equipment

Over 120 different instruments are currently supported. This includes laser trackers, arms, laser radars, scanners, projectors, theodolites, total stations, and photogrammetric devices—all featuring a common interface for each instrument class.


Align to a known coordinate system using a variety of techniques, from 3-2-1 and best fits to interactive fitting such as Quick-Align and classic surface fits. Relationship Fitting allows for simultaneous feature-based fitting to organic surfaces in addition to traditional iterative fitting.


Maintain a clear history of all data from start to finish with 100% traceability from measurement to reporting.

Uncertainty calculation and USMN

Calculate measurement uncertainty and use USMN to achieve the ideal instrument network.

Real-time build and virtual assembly

Digitally assemble components with Relationships and constraints to see how parts will fit in final assembly.

An entire suite of tools are available for real-time building.

GD&T inspection

Address ASME standard GD&T requirements with support for native CAD annotations.

Geometry inspection

Define design-based inspection routines from a CAD model or primitive geometry.

Model-based definition

Take advantage of CAD models to capture deviations over time or watch them in real-time

Reporting tools

Quickly and easily generate custom reports with output to a wide variety of formats.


Use Measurement Plans and an SDK to enable powerful scripting and automation capabilities.

Point clouds

  • Combine laser scanner interfaces with advanced tools for feature fitting and automatic sphere extraction
  • Automatically extract features from scan data for easy comparison to CAD or analysis with GD&T
