Build!IT originated in the late 1990s as an Imageware product focused on addressing metrology issues in aircraft manufacturing. A leader in its field, our software was used in Leica’s AXYZ CAD software. MAYA Heat Transfer Technologies Ltd subsequently acquired the software with the aim of growing the technology and the market share, naming the new division MAYA Metrix. A few years later, MAYA spun their metrology group off into a new company originally called Metrix Software Solutions Ltd. The company was later renamed BuildIT Software & Solutions Ltd. in 2007, after our major software product. In 2013, Build!IT finally removed the exclamation mark from the product name, transitioning it to BuildIT. In July 2016, BuildIT was acquired by FARO® (NASDAQ: FARO) as part of the expansion of their metrology and factory automation offerings.
Our experienced team of mechanical engineers, metrology application specialists, software engineers and computer scientists provide solutions that enable companies from around the world to improve their manufacturing processes as well as increase product quality and productivity. Their expertise allows us to provide practical solutions tailored to real-world applications and to extend our software into a total solution.
