The optional TouchCAD module of TouchDMIS simplifies CMM programming when using CAD and introduces touch screen manipulation of the CAD model using gesture commands.
CAD entities are simply selected from the CAD model with a single touch, vectors can be flipped and features switched from inner to outer feature with a further touch. Selection of CAD features has never been so fast and easy. STEP and IGES file formats are support as standard and native geometry import of all major CAD systems is also optionally available.
The selected 3D feature can be viewed as transparent to aid probe path planning. Probe path planning strategies can be touch selected from the Measurement Window and the individual Probe path adjusted by using the ‘Touch-Drag-Discs’ allowing rapid probe point and ‘Go-To’ point adjustments to avoid key-ways, grooves and other parts obstructions.
