CADPath software is for turning part CAD files into MeasureMax(TM) inspection programs. Other CAD-based inspection programs use wire-frame views which can create problems because they don't show surface detail. CADPath takes IGES input and, using an STL file, brings detailed, solid-type rendering to the graphical interface for direct on-line programming. The software also avoids probe collisions because it automatically optimizes the probe path and does complete path planning.
