VXinspect is the ideal low-cost, entry-level 3D inspection software solution for manufacturing companies conducting first article inspection (FAI) and production control. VXinspect features all the essential functionalities required to build a measurement sequence allowing high efficiency when controlling multiple parts. A centralised panel built into the software allows an easy selection of the information to display in the final report.

Like other Creaform software modules, VXinspect is directly integrated into VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform and application suite, providing the simplest integration of probing and 3D scanning measurements to gather the data required to meet industry requirements for quality control applications.

The combination of Creaform technologies with VXinspect offers the ideal solution for shop-floor environments. With its intuitive interface, it is the best solution for a simplifies and intuitive inspection workflow with no compromise on measurement quality and GD&T requirements.


CAD Import

CAD imports of IGES and STEP files are supported as standrad by VXinspect. This allows direct measurement comparisons with the nominal CAD models, enabling you to better understand a part’s manufacturing defects.

Multiple-Measurement Mode

Seamlessly integrates your choice of measurement modes, by supporting both contact single-point touch probe using the HandyPROBE portable CMM and non-contact measurements using scanners such as the MetraSCAN 3D or the HandySCAN 3D. All devices can be combined through the unique and intuitive software interface.

Measurement Tools

VXinspect incorporates a wide range of measurement tools to enable you to carry out all types of inspection work, including probing and scanning of features and surfaces. All measurements can be compared directly with the nominal CAD datra, or even to the imported mesh of a previously measured part.

Alignment Tool-Kit

The first step to every dimensional inspection process is to ensure the proper position and orientation of the object in 3D, according to the operational or design requirements of the part. This ensures more accurate results from data acquisition up to the finai nspection report. VXinspect includes a range of alignment tools to deal with most applications.

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)

VXinspect’s sophisticated algorithms and calculation methods offer an accessible way to apply GD&T principles and practices to the inspection projects, even for users without extensive experience with GD&T notions. With VXinspect, you can tackle most GD&T requirements including form and orientation tolerances, profile and localisation tolerance, datum reference frame (DRF) construction using geometric counterparts, and much more!

Graphical Reporting

Once measured, a part's dimensional results can be presented either in a tabular or graphical format, with direct export to Microsoft Excel for printing or creating customised report templates.



Each production start up comes with different process issues. In many cases, some prior adjustments have to be made to be fully in control of the manufacturing process. During this search for problems to solve, users of 3D measuring devices need a quick way to compare measured geometry with the design data. VXinspect offers the simplest workflow for quick Part-to-CAD inspection.

    1. Import CAD : STEP and IGES files are supported
   2. Measurements : Data is gathered using either probing or scanning, or a combination of both
    3. Colour Map : Simplest Part-to-CAD workflow comparison showing areas that are out of tolerance
   4. Report : Wear-and-tear analysis, surface deviations in critical areas


Once the manufacturing process is under control, first article inspection (FAI) or production part approval process (PPAP) need to be performed. VXinspect is ideal to simply build the inspection program for such operation.

It can also be used to control critical dimensions at various stages of the manufacturing process. Users can repeat the same measurement sequence several times to follow evolution of specific parts and thus prevent future problems.
