What is GOM Inspect

GOM Inspect is a software for analyzing 3D measuring data from fringe projection or laser scanners, coordinate measurement machines (CMM) and other measuring systems. The GOM software is used in product development, quality control and production.

GOM Software certified by PTB and NIST

In order to ensure precise measurement accuracy, both GOM Inspect Professional and GOM Inspect software have been tested and certified by PTB and NIST institutions. The accuracy of the evaluation software is tested by comparing the results from the software with reference results. The GOM software has been placed in Category 1, the category with the smallest measurement deviations. 

What´s new

What´s new in the current version of the GOM Software 2018?

Digital Assembly

Digital assembly of multiple components in a project and alignment of measured meshes of two components using different options.


Next Steps in Automotive Car Body Inspection

Optimized workflow for robogrammetry to capture car bodies even faster, more accurately and with fewer tools. 


Smart Inspection

Direct selection in the GOM software 2018 of tests of the shape and position of a component specified in a technical drawing. 


New additional GOM Software 2018 Features

Augmented reality

A new mode enables inspection results to be displayed directly on the real object and viewed on a tablet with an integrated camera or another mobile device with an external webcam, for example during audits.

Interactive presentation mode

The new, simple user interface enables interactions, such as rotating the part and configuring the legend, while the report pages themselves remain unchanged and thus protected.

Extended import of CT data

Even if the volume data is larger than the main memory of the computer, it can be imported into the GOM Software 2018 and then polygonized.

Open data exchange

In addition to the existing import and export options, a compound of CAD patches, polygonized meshes and several stages can now be exported, for example, as G3D or STL files.

Calibration of the measuring setup during automated measurement

Using the new function, CAD data of the measuring object and, if necessary, of the fixture can be positioned exactly based on real data so that the measuring setup is calibrated for the project.

Inspection of draft angles

The inspection of draft angles extends the range of the inspection functions available to date. With these functions, surfaces can be identified that can cause problems during demolding of a tool, for example, in casting processes.

Extended analysis of surface defects without CAD data

In the GOM Software 2018, an estimated reference surface can be created to be able to distinguish defects from the real shape of the part more clearly.

Optimizations for aerospace industry

A new deviation label and the optimized workflow for profiles with different tolerance regions can be used especially for the inspection of the profile shape and position of an airfoil.

Evaluating the photogrammetry quality

Based on the precision computation of the individual reference points in the 3D view, conclusions on the quality of the entire measuring setup can be drawn, especially for expert analyses.

Post-processing of polygon meshes

In addition to previous error corrections, sewing errors and inconsistencies due to triangles with opposite surface normals can now also be corrected easily.
