OpenDMIS Software Interface

Functionally enhanced Metrology Equipment software allowing open access to CMM CAD performance for 3D scanning

A truly unique User Interface. Dynamic function-sensitive toolbars, action icons, and context-sensitive work areas characterize OpenDMIS™ 3D Scanning Software. The graphics window remains visible at all times, maximizing operating efficiency.

No pop-up windows to close, no cascading menus, no screen crowding, and no annoying “drill down” functionality.

This next generation metrology equipment software for all new Wenzel coordinate measuring machines, software upgrades, and retrofits minimizes the learning curve, for a rapid progression of the new user to full-feature capability.

For the first time, CMM software is intuitive, powerful, and easy to use. No function is more than one mouse click away. No other software can claim the one click performance and drag-and-drop functionality of OpenDMIS 3D Scanning Software.

3D Scanning and 3D Imaging are the other half of the equation in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing. With 3D printing the possibilities may seem endless, and maybe they are, but only if proven metrology principles are applied to measurement using 3D Scanning and 3D imaging.  If you can’t measure you can’t ensure quality.  Without quality assurance that 3D scanning can produce all manufacturing fails.
