Wilcox Associates Inc., a Hexagon Metrology company, recently announced the release of PC-DMIS Planner software. The toolset improves the flow of information between the design department, which designs parts in the virtual CAD world, and the engineering department, which manages the quality control function and inspects “as built” parts in the real world. PC-DMIS Planner was developed to create a formalized two-directional data flow between a CAD model and its related inspection part programs.
