SmartProfile takes point clouds of data from part measurements and merges it with the nominal CAD model of the part with GD&T tolerances. It then automatically performs a result evaluation based on those tolerances, while fully complying with ASME Y14.5 or ISO 1101 tolerancing standards.
SmartProfile uses ANSI/ISO-standard approved fitting methods, making it easy to apply GD&T tolerances to the model and fit the measured data for complete and correct GD&T evaluation – every time.
SmartProfile integrates a host of new features that simplify even the most complex measurement processes, making it easier to confirm design intent and GD&T compliance.
It works through importing the CAD Model file, applying tolerances, then through imported measurement points this can be evaluated to generate reports.
This program manages millions of points, reducing them intelligently regardless of tip radius compensation for tactile data points. Integrates pre-processing point tools are available to accept millions of points in order to reduce them to a more reasonable size.
SmartProfile has the capability to evaluate surface profiles and geometric tolerances against Datum Reference Frames using compound datums, pattern datums, datums at MMC/LMC and composite tolerance zones.
As well as producing numerical, statistical and colour mapped results, reports can be exported to several file formats such as PDF, CSV, HTML and plain text format. SmartProfile has a built-in scripting wizard to allow automated evaluation of the production line or batch. Customised scripts that use Python or C# are also supported.
