BuildIT enables quick and easy dimensional inspection of manufactured parts and assemblies for tool building, assembly, alignment, process automation, reverse engineering and quality control. With both numerical and graphical feedback of real-time deviations, BuildIT allows users to position parts with micrometer accuracy for high-precision assembly and alignment applications. The advanced point cloud processing and new STL mesh generation features expand BuildIT’s capabilities to reverse engineering applications such as 3D printing, rapid prototyping and CFD analysis.
Key features include CAD-to-part inspection, GD&T analysis, creation of custom automated processes and generation of extensive reports. The software interfaces in real-time with a variety of probing and scanning measurement devices such as measurement arms, laser trackers, photogrammetry, laser scanners and/or total stations, from all major hardware vendors, including FARO, Leica, Romer, API, AICON, Kreon and Creaform. It directly reads 3D CAD files from native (CATIA®, NX, Parasolid, CREO(Pro/E), Inventor, SolidWorks, AutoCAD) or neutral formats (IGES, STEP, SAT) for model-based inspection and assembly.
