Multi Construct is a productivity tool that’s part of both Verisurf AUTOMATE and MEASURE/REPORT MANAGER that allows users to quickly and easily create multiple Constructs from features or measurements. These Constructs are used in CMM programs or AUTO INSPECT programs/plans for manual CMM prompted sequences. These Constructs includes: distance, angle, intersect, line, and average point.
Multi Construct Example: Bolt Pattern
Follow this example of a bolt hole callout that makes easy work of building a Plan sequence for an automated CMM or manual Automate/Auto Inspect workflow:
In a Plan or Report Manager, select the features from which you wish to create multiple constructed features, or multiple constructed measurements. (Use Windows Ctrl+left-click each item, shift+left-click first through last of a group, or window-select group.).
