Updated Metrology Software Suite

"Renishaw has unveiled the new MODUS 2 metrology software suite, which brings new levels of clarity and efficiency to the programming and operation of CMMs," said a company spokesperson. Based on the established MODUS platform and supporting Renishaw's suite of 3- and 5-axis CMM sensor technologies, MODUS 2 was designed with usability in mind. "The innovative interface is simple to learn and faster to program, resulting in high levels of productivity with or without a CAD model," said the spokesperson.

The user experience is designed to be identical whether the software is connected to a live CMM or working in an offline environment, where full simulation with speed control allows measurement sequence development and visualization.

A complete re-design of the software interface with the introduction of Off Surface motion technology, intelligent measurement strategies, automatic reporting and an interactive virtual CMM environment are some of the features that are designed to enhance the user experience. "From simple manual CMM operation through to complex part measurement on multi-axis systems, MODUS 2 adapts automatically and only offers functionality relevant to the current task," said the spokesperson.

"Intelligent extraction of CAD data and knowledge of underlying geometry determine the measurement strategy. However, consistency in measurement methods is key across an organization, and MODUS 2 facilitates this by allowing users to collaborate on data collection properties and parameters such as fitting algorithms and filters," continued the spokesperson.
