SA Features & Benefits
Full Support for Multiple Portable Metrology Instruments
Powerful, versatile, and user-friendly, SA can simultaneously communicate with virtually any number and type of portable metrology instruments. This includes laser trackers, arms, laser radars, scanners, projectors, theodolites, total stations, and photogrammetric devices–all featuring a common interface for each instrument class.
Align to a known coordinate system using a variety of techniques, from 3-2-1 and best fits to interactive fitting such as Quick-Align and classic surface fits. Relationship Fitting allows for simultaneous feature-based fitting to organic surfaces in addition to traditional iterative
Real-Time Build & Virtual Assembly
Digitally assemble components with relationships and constraints to see how parts will fit in final assembly. An entire suite of tools are available for real-time building.
Maintain a clear history of all data from start to finish with 100% traceability from measurement to reporting.
Address ASME standard GD&T requirements with support for native CAD annotations.
Quickly and easily generate custom reports with output to a wide variety of formats.
Combine laser scanner interfaces with advanced tools for feature fitting and automatic sphere extraction. Automatically extract features from scan data for easy comparison to CAD or analysis with GD&T.
Uncertainty Calculation & USMN
Calculate measurement uncertainty and use USMN to achieve the ideal instrument network.
Define design-based inspection routines from a CAD model or primitive geometry.
Take advantage of CAD models to capture deviations over time or watch them in real-time.
Use Measurement Plans and an SDK to enable powerful scripting and automation
SpatialAnalyzer has received NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Certification. For more information on NIST certification, click here.
SpatialAnalyzer has received PTB Certification. This certification ensures that the math algorithms used adhere to known standards.
Support Cad Formats
IGES, STEP, STL, CATIA®, SolidWorks®, NX®, ProEngineer®, Creo Parametric Inventor, and more.
SA CAD Validation
The SA CAD Validation application is a stand-alone utility that streamlines the following:
- Define standalone test reference files that contain lists of CAD files and reference points for verification. It uses a simple independent ASCII reference point file to verify the imported CAD Model in SA and provides the ability to verify all the file formats supported by SA’s Direct CAD Import functionality.
- Allows defining statistical tolerance thresholds for acceptance and rejection for each CAD file evaluated.
- Provides a separate and independent connection to SA for verification purposes.
- Delivers a simple user interface and a RUN button to perform a verification process with as detailed a verification as is required.
