GOM Inspect Software

Evaluation Software for 3D measuring data

GOM Inspect Professional and GOM Inspect are software packages for the analysis of 3D measuring data for quality control, product development and production. The GOM software is used to evaluate 3D measuring data derived from GOM systems, 3D scanners, laser scanners, CTs, CMMs and other sources.

3D Meshes and CAD

Import of CAD data, measurement plans and 3D point clouds, creation and editing of polygon meshes.

3D Inspection

Alignment of measuring data to nominal data, dimensional analysis (2D, 3D, GD&T, SPC) and creation of measuring reports.

Free Viewer

GOM Inspect is a free viewer for 3D scan data, measuring reports and CAD data.

Certified Software

The GOM Inspect software packages have been tested and certified by the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The GOM software has been placed in category 1, the category with the smallest measurement deviations.

Parametric Inspection

The GOM software is based on a parametric concept, which forms the underlying foundation for every function. This parametric approach ensures that all process steps are traceable, thus guaranteeing process reliability for measuring results and reports.

Trend Analysis

The underlying parametric concept of the GOM software makes it possible to implement a trend analysis for multiple evaluations, for example, in the statistical process control (SPC). This allows a full-field evaluation of several parts or stages within a single project.

Free GOM Inspect Software

GOM Inspect is a free 3D inspection and mesh processing software for the shape and dimension analysis of 3D point clouds and serves as a viewer for measuring results and CAD data. The free software is designed for users who process and evaluate 3D data.

In GOM Inspect, the parametric functionality is not fully available. It ensures the traceability of measuring data, however, the creation of templates, Teaching by Doing and the parametric inspection functionality are only available in GOM Inspect Professional.
