New Inspection and Reverse Engineering Tool for MRO from

La Jolla, CA, April 20, 2009 ¬ announced today that its newest product, ReSpect™––a feature-based, Go/No-Go, Reverse Engineering and Inspection software product--has been optimized for maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations.

ReSpect™ is designed for feature measurement, inspection, and CAD-to-part comparison directly in Solidworks using popular 3D scanners and portable manual CMM arms. ReSpect™ is a plug-and-play tool-set integrated with SolidWorks 2009 3D mechanical design software. Engineers and designers use SolidWorks with ReSpect™ to capture and measure data from existing parts, while working directly within the SolidWorks environment. Therefore, it allows you to measure and digitize directly into a CAD system; there is no translation or associated cost required. ReSpect™ is designed specifically to support geometric dimensioning and tolerancing applications (GD&T) that are critical aspects of MRO.

Just some of the advanced features and capabilities of ReSpect™ include:
•        Pull-down menu, toolbar, and command manager integration that provide an efficient user interface for measurement.
•        Repeat Part datum alignment.
•        Simple Go/No-Go Measurements displayed with Property Page Manager for quick feature measurement results.
•        Integration between scan device, mouse, and the CAD system
•        CAD system Feature Tree Management lets you organize measured and nominal data.
•        The ability to scan millions of points and create lock plane and radial profiles for inspection with user-defined plane tolerancing.
•        On-Demand scan data database can be accessed anytime and modified.

Some of the most common industry applications for ReSpect™ include:
•        Aerospace: Alignment, Tooling & Mold Certification, Part Inspection.
•        Automotive: Tool Building and Certification, Alignment, Part Inspection.
•        Metal Fabrication: First Article Inspection, Periodic Part Inspection.
•        Molding/Tool and Die: Mold and Die Inspection, Prototype Part Scanning.

“ReSpect™ aligns the real-time scan session to your part, and instantly lets you check a prototype, or analyze assembly fit problems, and then simultaneously updates your Solidworks design,” said Braxton Carter, Chief Technology Officer, “Because of this unique OEM integration to the SolidWorks interface, engineers are more productive and experience a complete harmony between the movement of the CMM, the mouse, and SolidWorks.”

ReSpect™ supports coordinate measuring machine (CMM) devices such as Faro, Romer, MicroScribe, and 3D Creator. Demonstrations can be seen at the Aviation Week MRO Show, Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, Grapevine/Dallas, Texas, April 21 through April 23, 2009 in Booth #1304.

About develops and markets plug-n-play software tool sets that accurately, quickly, and easily import raw digitized data from portable and traditional CMMs, laser trackers, and laser scanners into CAD/CAM systems as easily modifiable parametric sketches. Providing what is essentially a universal front end for reverse engineering, we have eliminated the data translation issues usually associated with reverse engineering and related applications. Taking a modular approach, we provide more than 500 CAD/CAM integrated tool sets addressing any need, from entry-level to the most sophisticated CAD applications.
