Part Design (CAD/PMI)

Part Design (CAD/PMI)

Efficient and accurate part design through CAD and PMI data

If the CAD model of a part has been provided with inspection features already during design, the 3D measurement planning and inspection can be performed in a drawing-free process directly on the PMI data set. Furthermore, the full-field geometry acquired by the non-contact ATOS system allows refeeding and adapting component and tool geometries into existing CAD data if a tool correction is necessary (advanced CAD modeling). The obtained measuring 3D data also serves for the creation of design data in the field of reverse engineering.


  • Inspection planning on CAD (PLM) for Industry 4.0
  • PMI interfaces (CATIA, Creo Parametric, NX)
  • Importable tolerance tables
  • Compensation for shrinkage, deformation, machining stock in CAD


The direct import and evaluation of PMI data including tolerance specifications from 3D design models accelerates new product developments and production processes by 3D measurement planning on the CAD data set prior to component production. Digital inspection data ensures continuous control throughout the complete Product Lifecycle Management (Industry 4.0).
