Online Simulation in the Virtual Laboratory.
The I++ Simulator is based on the independant I++ DME interface. As such, the I++ Simulator operates as a I++ server and machine in one software package - independent of the metrology software. The I++ Simulator can be used with every I++-conform metrology software(I++ client).
The I++ Simulator can be used to simulate existing measurement programs as well as creating new ones using teach-in or off-line methods such as CAD. All without machine downtime. No additional know-how is required; reality merges with virtual reality to create the impression of sitting in front of a machine. The gamepad replaces the jog box for moving the machine and taking points manually.
Moreover, the I++ Simulator is the ideal training tool. All aspects of coordinate metrology can be practiced offline, without damaging a real machine due to "real" collisions. Cost effective, on-going, training increases the capabilities and qualifications of individual employees without tying up expensive machine time.
