BuildIT enables quick and easy dimensional inspection of manufactured parts and assemblies for tool building, assembly, alignment, process automation, quality control and reverse engineering. With both numerical and graphical feedback of real-time deviations, BuildIT allows users to position parts with micrometer accuracy for high-precision assembly and alignment applications. Advanced point cloud processing and STL mesh generation features extend the software’s capabilities to reverse engineering applications such as 3D printing, rapid prototyping and CFD analysis.

Key features include CAD-to-part inspection, GD&T analysis, creation of custom automated processes and generation of extensive custom reports. The software interfaces in real-time with a variety of probing and scanning measurement devices from all major hardware vendors, including FARO, Leica, Romer, API, Creaform, Kreon and AICON, enabling the quick and efficient acquisition of dimensional information from a tool or part. BuildIT directly reads 3D CAD files from native (CATIA®V4 V5 V6, NX, Parasolid, CREO (Pro/E), Inventor, SolidWorks, AutoCAD) or neutral formats (IGES, STEP, SAT, JT, STL), as well as GD&T, FTA and NX-PMI assembly level data for model based inspection and assembly. In addition, BuildIT imports measured point data from external sources for maximum compatibility.

BuildIT supports DML export, enabling Statistical Process Control (SPC) through DPV, a Siemens PLM product. The ability to perform a statistical analysis of the manufacturing process complements BuildIT’s core offering by expanding the use of the analysis data into control charts to reduce waste and increase product conformity.
