PowerInspect: 3D measurement software for a wide range of metrology hardware

What is Fusion 360 with PowerInspect?

Fusion 360 with PowerInspect 3D measurement software provides programming capabilities to help monitor and control quality. It now includes access to Fusion 360 and its extensions, so you can: 

  • Inspect, validate and manage quality for all measurement equipment

  • Use on machine verification (OMV) to measure parts during production

  • Access Fusion 360, Fusion 360 Team and Fusion 360 Machining Extension

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 labour 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.

What you can do with PowerInspect

Combine inspection and verification in CNC machining

PowerMill provides a vast library of 3- and 5-axis strategies that help simplify the CAM programming and CNC machining of large moulds, tools, dies and other complex parts. (video: 1.32 min.)

Meet production goals and avoid expensive work

Advanced toolpath controls and powerful editing shortens CAM programming times and increases flexibility, resulting in finished parts that require little to no manual polishing. (video: 3.02 min.)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

PowerInspect is metrology software used to measure complex 3D shapes using different types of hardware. PowerInspect works with contact-based hardware, such as co-ordinate 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.

PowerInspect software is used by manufacturers to monitor and control the quality of parts being produced, as well as inspectors and quality control engineers to inspect parts. CNC machine operators who use on machine verification also use PowerInspect software to assist with part setup and measurement to ensure parts are produced to specification and within tolerance.
