What is Autodesk Fusion 360 with PowerInspect?
Autodesk Fusion 360® with PowerInspect® is 3D measurement software for offline programming of inspection routines that monitor and control manufacturing processes
- Inspect, validate, and manage quality of all measurement equipment.
- Use on-machine verification to measure parts during production.
- Now includes Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Team,
and Fusion 360 Machining Extension.
What is Autodesk Fusion 360 with PowerInspect used for?
Autodesk Fusion 360 with PowerInspect is metrology software used to measure complex 3D shapes using different types of hardware. PowerInspect works with contact-based hardware, such as coordinate measuring machines, articulated arms, or spindle-mounted probes in CNC machines. PowerInspect also works with non-contact hardware (such as structured light scanners). Inspection typically compares a physical component against a 3D CAD model or 2D drawing.
Why use Fusion 360 with PowerInspect?
Increase part quality:
Use in-process inspection to control your manufacturing process and avoid non-conformance.
Speed up production times:
Replace labor intensive manual processes with automated workflows to complete projects faster.
Avoid production bottlenecks:
Use on-machine verification on the shop floor to free up the quality control team.
Autodesk Fusion 360 with PowerInspect features
Combine inspection and verification in CNC machining
Use comprehensive inspection tools to measure parts while they’re still loaded into the machine using spindle-mounted probes. Make informed scrap or rework decisions quickly with machine tool probing.
Meet production goals and avoid expensive work
Minimize long setup times that compromise machine productivity and overall plant capacity. Save money by highlighting problems early in the process, reducing human errors, and gaining better real-time visibility.
Autodesk PowerInspect features
Support for multi-devices Use measuring equipment, including CNC CMMs, from a range of hardware providers.
Automated inspection Use automated inspection devices such as CNC/DCC CMMs and machine tool probing.
Complex shape inspection Apply the best strategies to inspect complex shapes. Automatically compile results into reports.
Graphical programming Explore easy programming for measurement sequences. Measure parts with minimal preparation.
Automatic machine collision checking Minimize chances of collisions during automated inspections. Simulate measurement sequences offline.
Manufacturing integration Optimize manufacturing with adaptive fixturing, on machine verification (OMV), electrode inspection, and clay milling.
