Certified Inspection Software
To ensure precise measuring accuracy, the GOM software packages have been tested and certified by the two institutes PTB and NIST. The accuracy of the inspection software is confirmed by the comparison of the results obtained with the reference results. The GOM software has been placed in Category 1, the category with the smallest measurement deviations.
The calculated polygon mesh describes free-form surfaces and standard geometries. These can be compared with the drawing or directly with the CAD data set with the help of a surface comparison. A 3D analysis of surfaces as well as a 2D analysis of sections or points can be implemented in the software. CAD-based generation of standard geometries such as lines, planes, circles or cylinders is also possible.
The GOM 3D software contains all standard alignment functions. These include RPS alignment, hierarchical alignment based on geometric elements, alignment in a local coordinate system, using reference points as well as various best-fit methods such as global best-fit and local best-fit. Customers can also use their own specific alignments, e. g. for turbine blades, such as balanced beam or equalized nested.
On the basis of full-field digitalized data, construction functions can be applied for curves and their characteristics can be visualized. Edge curves can, for example, be recorded, radii and design lines can be analyzed and spline curves can be created. Curve-based inspection is also used to evaluate gap and flush.
Trend, SPC and deformation analysis
The parameter-based approach of the GOM software enables trend analysis for multiple evaluation, e. g. for statistical process control (SPC) or deformation analysis. As a result, several parts or stages within a single project can be evaluated in a full-field manner, and statistical analysis values such as Cp, Cpk, Pp, Ppk, Min, Max, Avg and Sigma can be determined.
In contrast to the pure dimension analysis, the GD&T analysis focuses on the functional aspect of the part. Corresponding GD&T elements are, for example, planarity, parallelism or cylindricity. Both, a standardized analysis of 2-point distances and of the maximum material requirement as well as the position tolerance in local datum and coordinate systems are possible.
Special functions are available for the quality control of turbine blades, which can be used, for example, to inspect the profile mean line, profile chord line or profile thickness of turbine blades on the basis of 2D sections. The profile centroid, profile radii and profile twists can also be calculated.
The reporting module enables users to create reports containing snapshots, images, tables, diagrams, texts and graphics. The results can be visualized and edited in the user interface as well as exported as a PDF file. Templates are reusable, and each scene saved in a report can be restored in the 3D window.
Comprehensive software for ATOS 3D scanners. ATOS Professional includes all of the features of GOM Inspect Professional plus more. ATOS 3D scanning systems are engineered with advanced high-tech hardware coupled with intelligent software to offer a complete 3D metrology solution. ATOS Professional is created with intelligent software algorithms and in-depth analysis tools to produce high quality 3D data and precise dimensional measurements for engineering applications.
The smart user interface is knowledge base driven. It guides the operator through the entire scanning procedure and provides support for setting up new measuring tasks using the guided project creation feature.
- Application-related parameter settings and templates

- Process integrity and traceability with automatic measurement checks and pre-defined templates
Complete Workflow in 1 Software Platform
ATOS Professional software is used to operate the sensor head, process the 3D point cloud and to edit and post-process the data. The simple graphical user interface helps support today’s demanding tasks in quality control, manufacturing processes and reverse engineering. ATOS Professional features include: Sensor control, polygon mesh generation and editing, sectioning, feature and character line detection and primitive generation. For quality control and result analysis, tools such as CAD data import, import of measuring plans, registration, full-field deviation plots, section-based analysis, deviation of individual points, calipers, angles and diameters and report creation are available.
