This first tutorial gives you an overview of the graphical user interface including 3D view, explorer and reporting. It briefly introduces all major software concepts.
Evaluation Software for 3D Measurement Data
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.
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 in the current version of the GOM Software 2018?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In addition to previous error corrections, sewing errors and inconsistencies due to triangles with opposite surface normals can now also be corrected easily.
The free GOM Inspect software is also a viewer for all measurement results that are created with GOM Inspect Professional.
Video tutorials offer an introduction to the GOM Inspect software features.
GOM Inspect is a free 3D inspection and mesh processing software for dimensional analysis of 3D point clouds and a viewer for data sets from the applications ATOS Professional, TRITOP Professional, GOM Inspect Professional and PONTOS Live.
GOM Inspect Professional differs from GOM Inspect by the import of native CAD formats, active parametric, creating trend projects and Teaching by Doing.
GOM Inspect Professional data can be further processed in the free GOM Inspect software.

Data sets as learning and for different applications
This sample project gives you an overview over the essential functionalities of GOM Inspect - beginning with a simple inspection via surface deviation, over curve based evaluation and point based analysis, up to the handling of different alignments. It also contains examples of drawing based dimensioning, GPS tolerances and material thickness inspection.

This sample project shows how several parts are handled and compared within a project. Several stages can be used for trend analyses and statistical process control. The evaluation contains statistical color plots for range and sigma, and shows SPC parameters. Furthermore, the trend is displayed using tables and diagrams.

GOM offers practical seminars and training sessions for beginners and advanced users.
The one-day seminar provides an introduction to the software with practical exercises, including: Import of meshes, scan and CAD data, mesh processing, alignment, nominal/actual comparison, 3D inspection, 2D inspection, GD&T, material thickness analysis, 3D viewer, and much more.
The two-day training session provides an introduction to mesh and point inspection: Import of scan data, basic inspections, parametric inspection, inspection planning, assigning measuring principles, alignments, reporting, project templates, trend analysis etc.
User manuals and application-specific video tutorials provide important information about the GOM Software.
Numerous data sets for different applications are available in the Service Area.
The GOM Knowledge Base includes over 500 entries with information on software and hardware.
More than 5,000 users take advantage of the Forum to discuss issues and exchange experiences with other users and experts from GOM.
