The new GOM Software 2017 is now available. It includes new and advanced features for 3D metrology, virtual measuring room (VMR), and 3D testing.
Robogrammetry allows you to capture large parts such as car bodies and side panels fast, precisely and reproducibly. To ensure process reliability when transforming measurements, robogrammetry combines robot positions and newly developed reference cubes. The reference cubes combine the properties of coded and uncoded markers. Compared to a traditional photogrammetry measurement, considerably less elements are required.
New tools for planning, checking and visualizing the exact positioning of reference cubes allows to quickly apply the cubes onto the measuring object in the most efficient way. In double robot measuring cells, the new software version automatically allocates measurement positions to the appropriate system side.
Especially regarding photogrammetry and fine adjustment, the computation time has been significantly reduced in the GOM Software 2017, thus allowing a swift postprocessing of measuring data. Particularly in projects that contain numerous measurements, a substantially higher performance can be noticed. In two evaluated customer projects containing approx. 1,200 ATOS measurements, for example, the GOM Software 2017 saved 80 % to 90 % of time for postprocessing. Despite the reduced computation time, the accuracy remains just as high. Furthermore, the performance of the path optimization in the virtual measuring room was increased.
The acceleration of the workflows is also noticeable in the TRITOP system. The more images a photogrammetry project contains, the more time you save.
Comparing and simultaneously visualizing measuring data and exchanging data in general becomes more and more important in metrology. Therefore, additional scalar values and geometries, e.g. from simulation programs, can be imported into ARAMIS Professional 2017 and GOM Correlate Professional 2017. The data created in the GOM software can be exported in different formats and can be used, for example, for oscillation analysis in a third-party software.
With the ARAMIS Kiosk Interface, GOM provides a new user interface for the evaluation of tensile tests. This way, standardized testing procedures can be carried out fast, easily and specifically.
