A major breakthrough in this version is access to manufacturing information directly via CATIA V5 or Pro/E. Support available is for reading data annotations such as text, datum geometric tolerance and roughness as well as hole features. EXtraction of the PMI data allows users to give a list of GD&T tolerances applied to datum features and ACIS hole features before inserting them into the DMIS program. Further developments include the integration of Metris laser scanners and improved crash protection simulation, wing spar thickness measurement support, and support for third-party measuring technology such as the Faro arm SDK, Kryton K-CMM, and known and unknown scanning on Zeiss CMMs with VAST heads.
