Verisurf CAD is the foundation of all Verisurf suites and makes our software unique in the metrology industry. Verisurf software is different because it not only imports every major CAD file format; it is a complete 3D modeling application.
Verisurf is the only metrology software that includes wireframe modeling, NURB surfacing, Parasolid solid modeling, 2D drafting, and Model-Based Definition (MBD) that automates manufacturing.
Import large, complex CAD models with intelligent GD&T for fast model-based inspection planning and quality reporting.
Select measured features, and right-click to turn them into CAD entities for automated 3D design and modeling.
Verisurf CAD is the core of all Verisurf applications and includes; DESIGN, MBD, and TOOLS.
Verisurf DESIGN is a complete 3D design application with direct solid modeling, 3D surface modeling, and drafting.
CAD Compatible standard file-formats including; VDA, IGES, STEP, STL, Parasolid, and ACIS. Native file formats included are; SolidWorks, SolidEdge, AutoCAD, Inventor, Spaceclaim, KeyCreator, Rhinoceros, and optional formats are; Dassault CATIA, Siemens NX and PTC creo. This flexibility means that you can easily create or import and edit any CAD model – solid, surface, or wireframe.
Direct-Editing of Solids allows you to modify solids that have no history to edit. You can select faces of a solid body to change the length, you can modify the radius of fillets or remove them altogether. You can select bosses or cavities and move them, copy them, or eliminate them entirely.
History-Based Solids allows you to construct models from the simplest wireframe sketches and to continue to edit the model to meet your desired result. These functions create a sequential history of individual operations that can easily be edited as required and update downstream operations automatically. These functions offer a great amount of flexibility for future change.
Surface Modeling is an excellent way to create, edit, and display shapes from simple surfaces of revolution to complex organic shapes that cannot easily be visualized using a wireframe model display. DESIGN gives you a powerful set of surface design tools for straightforward control over every detail of your work.
Wireframe includes everything you need for the creation and editing of lines, arcs, splines, and points. Beyond 2D sketch creation, 3D capabilities offer unlimited flexibility to create the geometry you need with ease.
Drafting functionality includes; dimensions, labels, and notes to communicate important design information to the shop floor.
CAD for the Metrologist CMM Programmers need fixtures to secure parts on a CMM during inspection. Verisurf CAD is a great design tool for creating 3D printed CMM fixtures. Video: CMM Fixture Design for 3D Printing
