Combine the power of 3D scanning and CAD to verify parts quickly and thoroughly. Because XOV is feature intelligent, a few clicks are all it takes to define alignments, dimensions, tolerances and create reports. Inspect directly from CAD data – skip the interim steps that increase the chance for errors and waste time.
Accurate, automated part inspection
Simple, fast and reliable dimension and tolerance (GD&T) setup
The only native point cloud software that supports every callout in the ASME Y14.5 standard
Vivid deviation color maps for quick verification of part quality
Compatible with every major 3D scanner and probe-based device
FEATURE INTELLIGENT INSPECTION
Rapidform XOV has CAD intelligence built in, so defining measurements is as easy as clicking on a feature on a CAD model. It’s the only point cloud software that recognizes features, so you don’t have to extract reference geometry before you define dimensions and tolerances. On parts with hundreds or thousands of dimension/tolerance callouts, this saves hours of setup time, and reduces the risk of error by measuring directly from the CAD model. And if your 3D CAD models include GD&T information, XOV can import it all and use it immediately (available for Siemens NX, CATIA V5 and Creo).
SAFER & EASIER
XOV is easy to use. Its straightforward, logical workflow makes setting up inspections simple, and it extracts every measurement automatically. Reproducibility is ensured by its automatic feature extraction algorithms, which reliably extract reference geometry from measurement data without user intervention. Deviation color maps reveal differences between the nominal and measured part with a glance. And editing inspection routines is easy with its patented parametric history tree.
SUPPORTS AII 14 GD&T CALLOUTS OF THE ASME Y14.5B STANDARD
Rapidform XOV is the only native point cloud software that offers every 2D and 3D GD&T callout. It supports in-depth GD&T functionality like material condition modifiers and multiple datum reference frames.
USE POINT CLOUDS AND PROBE DATA INTERCHANGEABLY
XOV is built from the ground up to handle hundreds of millions of points from virtually any 3D scanner. It also supports many probe based devices with LiveInspect, Rapidform’s unique scanning/probing interface. Every measurement you take, regardless of the device it was collected with, is saved in XOV’s parametric history tree and can be used throughout the inspection routine.
AUTOMATIC INSPECTION REPETITION
Because Rapidform XOV tracks every step of the inspection process, once you’ve inspected one sample of a part, every subsequent sample can be inspected automatically. XOV recognizes features in the scan data and measures them on the fly without any user interaction needed. So the next part you inspect is just one step from beginning to end. You don’t need to write macros to automate your work because Rapidform XOV is history-based just like Rapidform XOR.
MACRO-FREE INSPECTION PROCESS AUTOMATION
In XOV, you’ve got a simple interface similar to popular CAD applications, so running through the inspection process is a breeze. Just import the CAD nominal, open the scans of your part (or use LiveScan to run your 3D scanner inside XOV), and you’re ready to go. Every alignment, deviation color map, dimension and tolerance that you measure is added to the history tree, so you can track exactly what you’ve done and change anything at any time. No other point cloud metrology software lets you tweak your inspection process so easily. Imagine that you’re finishing up an inspection job, only to notice your part isn’t properly aligned to the CAD model – no problem! With XOV, you simply change the alignment, and the software recalculates every measurement and regenerates an inspection report.
POWER CAPABILITIES FOR THE MOST DEMANDING APPLICATIONS
There’s a reason Rapidform XOV is used by almost every major automaker and thousands of other companies: it has in-depth functionality to complete the toughest inspection jobs. Sophisticated alignments, ANSI Y14.5b compliant GD&T and extensive deviation analysis capabilities let you perform detailed inspections of your parts. Sheet metal, castings, plastics, tooling and machined parts can all be measured and compared to CAD models in XOV
When it comes to inspection, every calculation counts. That’s why Rapidform XOV’s geometry calculation algorithms have been tested by America’s NIST, Britian’s NPL and independently certified by Germany’s PTB metrology authority as Class 1 accuracy. Top manufacturers around the world trust Rapidform XOV to measure thousands of parts every day.
