Introducing Profile measurement for M3 [1/18/2016]

  
_______________________________________________________________________

View and download the new Profiling datasheet here

The new Profiling option compares measured part data to nominal part contours and tolerance limits specified in a DXF file or M3 profile construction. 

Data collection from Profile features extending beyond the machine field of view is fast and simple. Accurate collection of profile data is ensured by using a defined machine path based on the dxf profile itself.

Fit controls include independent fit constraints for X /Y translation and rotation, fit point density, fit algorithm type, and fit point filtering.

Easily analyze profile fit results using intuitive tools for quickly identifying the worst point, the best point, or a specified number of  points relative to the profile tolerance.

Export the profile measurement data cloud to either a CSV or DXF file. X and Y positions, IJ vector values, delta from the point to the part model, and tolerance and percentages of the total tolerance will be included in the export.

 

New functionality with M3 Version 2! [10/6/2014]

-Support for touch probes and 3D feature geometries

The M3V2 expands support for multi-sensor video measuring systems equipped with touch probe modules. Expanded 3D feature geometries are supported through touch probe and video measurement of feature in the Xy, Yz, and Zx planes.  Measure planes, cones, cylinders, and spheres in 3D part space, and view results in the new M3 3D part view.

-Run Database for part programs

Track and analyze measurement run result for your M3 part programs. View past measurement results quickly and easily using the new tabbed program results view. Add quick statistical feedback, including min, max, range, average, and 6sigma, to your data for more detailed analysis of result trends and measurement repeatability. 

-Expanded template customization

The existing M3 report template types can now be directly edited within the software. Data columns can now be added, removed, resized, and repositioned within any given template default. Change the appearance of your custom template by adding and removing horizontal and vertical divider lines, and change the height and width of report columns and rows. 

-New Auto Play function for Field of View systems

The new program Auto Run function plays part programs quickly and with minimal operator intervention. Simply place one or more of a given part on the stage and the system will identify, execute, and report measurement results based on the detected part program. 

-Expand your View with Image Stiching

SuperImage is a new feature that enables the collection and assembly of individual camera frames for increased imaging capability on manual and CNC systems.Preset more than one stage location to the new quick stitch buttons to create soft fixture image locations. The SuperImage function may also be used within any part program to create an expanded view of any portion of the part, improving playback of features with high positional variability, part to part.

 

M3 Digital Comparator Enhancement [03/01/2013]

_______________________________________________________________________
Metlogix is pleased to announce that the popular M3 Digital Comparator functionality has now been enhanced for ease of use and flexibility. Added support for DXF import and editing, combined with new overlay construction tools means part overlays can be prepared quickly and accurately, in most cases without the need for sophisticated CAD editing applications. Manipulation of DXF overlay charts has been improved as well. Change the overlay rotation point interactively, and make fine-tuneӔ adjustments of DXF position and rotation to achieve precise comparison of part characteristics and chart tolerance zones. Convert libraries of standard part DXF files to digital comparator overlays quickly using the DXF save function. Ask your dealer about the M3 Digital Comparator software option.

 

M2/M3 CNC [10/01/2012]

________________________________________________________________________
Metlogix introduces powerful and easy to use CNC control to the M2 and M3 software products. Motor assisted program playback capability for video inspection machines, microscopes, and optical comparators improves productivity and simplifies part inspection routines. The intuitive measurement tools found in the M2 and M3 software compliment this newly added CNC functionality, and yield an effective and robust metrology tool. The CNC software introduces program palletization, auto programming from DXF, as well as motorized auto focus. Get more done with an M2 or M3 CNC measuring system today.

Introduction of the M3 Field of View System [11/11/2011]

________________________________________________________________________
We are pleased to announce the M3 FOV/DXF system. This available option pack, for the market leading M3 measuring software, optimizes software functionality for both fixed stage and traditional encoded stage video inspection machines. Pattern recognition, and speedy feature measurement capability, increase playback efficiency for many common FOV part measurement routines. The DXF import module enables graphical overly of DXF files for comparison of measured features to DXF CAD tolerance zones. Custom reticles, Image Snap, and DXF output of measured features are also included within this option pack.  To learn more, visit the M3 FOV product page.
