New features of PowerINSPECT 2024
Autodesk Fusion 360 with PowerInspect is metrology software used to measure complex 3D shapes using different types of hardware. PowerInspect works with contact-based hardware, such as coordinate measuring machines, articulated arms, or spindle-mounted probes in CNC machines. PowerInspect also works with non-contact hardware (such as structured light scanners). Inspection typically compares a physical component against a 3D CAD model or 2D drawing.
