The model-based definition solution for collaborative measurement planning between your product engineering teams.

Revolutionize your product engineering processes with PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™, an innovative Model-Based Definition (MBD) solution. This tool empowers you to establish 3D measurement plans that are associated with CAD design geometry, all within your native CAD platform. Fully compatible with PolyWorks|Inspector™, it offers a digital collaboration platform for your design, manufacturing, and 3D measurement teams, streamlining product engineering from a unified product definition.


CAD-based MBD for 3D Measurement Planning

PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™: Empowering MBD in Your CAD Platform
Innovate with PolyWorks|PMI+Loop™, an advanced Model-Based Definition (MBD) solution that empowers your design and manufacturing teams to establish 3D measurement objects and dimensional criteria directly within your native CAD platform. This enables comprehensive checks for part fit, functional and performance assurance, manufacturing feedback, and seamless communication of instructions to the 3D measurement team.
Create CAD Geometry Ready for Measurement
Establish 3D measurement objects and construction geometry, complete with their controlled attributes, directly associated with the CAD-design geometry.

Gain Dimensional Insights for Manufactured Parts
Implement specialized characteristics to obtain data on feature locations, surface and edge deviations, and tie them to assembly, tooling, or datum coordinate systems for comprehensive feedback on manufactured parts.
Utilize Native GD&T and Datum Labels
Seamlessly integrate native Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and datum labels into your 3D measurement plans. Ensure compatibility with downstream applications that utilize CAD models with Model-Based Definition (MBD).

Configure Report-Ready Characteristics
Efficiently structure your inspection reports by reviewing, organizing, and numbering controlled characteristics. Link them to 3D views or captures of your CAD model to facilitate the construction of your inspection report.
