Hexagon Releases PC-DMIS 2019 R2

New capabilities, greater ease of use, and user experience improvements

Published: Thursday, August 29, 2019 - 21:22

(Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division today launched PC-DMIS 2019 R2, the latest edition of the world’s most popular measurement software. PC-DMIS 2019 R2 introduces Home Page, a new way to interact with PC-DMIS that improves convenience, productivity, and brings content to the user in an attractive, intuitive way, whether user focus is on the creation of measurement routines or executing them in the factory. Home Page is a significant enhancement of the traditional PC-DMIS main screen to make recent programs and favorites accessible directly from the home screen. Users can create folders and organize their measurement routines how they need them. Home Page also brings helpful content and support directly into PC-DMIS. Users now have seamless access to the latest product news, support contact, helpful videos, the PC-DMIS idea center, and the regular PC-DMIS newsletter (SMA needed). 

The already broad capabilities of PC-DMIS are extended further with new optional support for the skidless Breitmeier Messtechnik Roughness Sensor. Allowing users to measure roughness in PC-DMIS for the first time, the user-friendly interface enables the user to create a roughness scan command in one click, without needing extensive training or to learn new software.

The new Thickness Colormap function provides the user with clear, intuitive graphics showing the thickness of a component. This feature can either show measured thickness using mesh or point cloud data, or can be used to show deviations to the CAD model, allowing the user to see immediately where attention is needed.

Another notable enhancement includes new capabilities introduced to the software’s widely acclaimed GD&T Selection from Capture. When released in 2019 R1, this new feature helped transform the way GD&T data is added to a measurement program. Now it has been improved with better OCR recognition, including feature control frames, datums, and datum targets.
