The latest version of Inspire introduces a variety of advancements including additional GD&T improvements, enhanced point cloud meshing for scanned data and new powerful feature extraction capabilities.

The software also introduces the ability to create cross-sections of a point cloud without the need for a CAD model. Inspire’s learning curve is decidedly short for new and existing users with novice to expert skill levels. Hexagon offers a broad range of training materials from online videos and tutorials culminating in nearly four hours of user training resources.

The latest version of Inspire takes the user experience (UX) to the next level with new navigation and feature enhancements,” states Dave O’Neal, Inspire Product Manager at Hexagon. “The metrology industry as a whole was in need of an entirely re-envisioned inspection software built from the ground up to meet the real world needs of today’s measurement professionals. The latest iteration of Inspire includes over twenty-five major enhancements across the board expanding the sheer breadth of capabilities in this end-to-end inspection software solution.”
