Powerful metrology software

Renishaw's MODUS software provides a powerful platform for 5‑axis measurement. A configurable user interface allows native DMIS programs to be developed offline, drawing geometry, embedded dimensions and tolerance data from CAD, with full simulation. The software includes certified algorithms for feature measurement, feature construction and part alignment.

Programs can be created offline directly from CAD with on-screen probe path verification. The CMM environment, the fixture and the location of the part on the machine can all be defined, enabling full simulation of 5‑axis measurement programs. This minimises CMM down-time as programs arrive at the machine ready to run, with little or no prove-out time required.

Standards foster interoperability

Building on a foundation of industry standards such as DMIS, I++ DME, DML and Microsoft® SQL Server, MODUS maximises compatibility with your existing programs and reports. Flexible reporting options include text-based and graphical reports, and results data that can be exported in a wide range of file formats, including certified Q-DAS for comprehensive SPC analysis.

The reporting capability of MODUS is extensive, including traditional CMM text reports with comprehensive user-defined formatting. Graphical reporting enables results to be displayed against the CAD model, including whisker charts or 3D form plotting for many features.

Future proof

MODUS metrology software is a future-proof investment, ensuring guaranteed availability of the latest sensor and controller technology advancements from Renishaw.

This will include future sensors for the REVO 5-axis measurement system, including surface finish measurement.

MODUS™ Planning Suite

The new MODUS Planning Suite makes complex part programming easy.

The MODUS Planning Suite is designed to provide users with a set of automated shortcuts to frequent challenges in part programming, maximising the efficiency of their REVO® CMM head with easy to use specialised software applications. MODUS Planning Suite allows users to plan measurement paths around complex geometry components with minimal effort and improved efficiency.

Harnessing advanced planning technology, the software provides offline tools with simulated motion to create DMIS code representing collision‑free part measurement.
