Verisurf CAD

Verisurf CAD is the foundation of all Verisurf suites and makes our software unique in the metrology industry. Verisurf software is different because it not only imports every major CAD file format; it is a complete 3D modeling application.

Verisurf is the only metrology software that includes wireframe modeling, NURBS surfacing, Parasolid solid modeling, 2D drafting, and Model-Based Definition (MBD) that automates manufacturing.

Key Features

  • Import large, complex CAD models with intelligent GD&T for fast model-based inspection planning and quality reporting
  • Select measured features, modify values for design intent as required, then one-click export to CAD for automated 3D design and modeling
  • Metrology productivity TOOLS to quickly define coordinate systems, correct surface normals, find holes, and create 3D PDF files


Verisurf Measure

Measure part features and complex profile geometries informed by real-time deviation display between CAD and measured data for real-time decisions. Produce one-click inspection reports in standard or custom, shareable formats that feed to your quality management system.

The Measure module’s device interface operates and optimizes most popular measurement systems making them more productive and ensuring a better return on your investment. You can also import externally captured data and process it against the nominal CAD model and tolerances. Even run datasets offline with feature extraction and pre-defined datums and constraints.

Key Features

  • Easily automated inspection plans for repeatable device alignment, measurement, and reporting using semantic, associative model-based definition
  • Connect to multiple devices simultaneously and quickly switch between individual point probing, tactile scanning, and 3D non-contact scanning
  • GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing) measurement simplified – apply callouts, associate feature relationships, and employ datum reference frame controls with only basic training


Verisurf Build

Verisurf BUILD is the industry-leading tool for real-time model-based inspection, tool fabrication, and computer-aided assembly.

Inspect position and profile, set details and fabricate tools, jigs, and fixtures faster and at lower cost than any other process or software.

Evolved and perfected from a large installed base at today’s modern aerospace, automotive, and industrial tooling manufacturers.

Key Features

  • Quickly begin the important part of your inspect or build project with Verisurf’s fast, accurate alignment of CMM to CAD model
  • Real-time deviation display, enhanced by live interaction between the onscreen probe and CAD, responding to probe proximity, and streaming immediate positional detail
  • Numerous deviation gages, color indicators, and digital readouts, interact with intelligent GD&T from the model, which also sets tolerances for inspection reporting


Verisurf Analysis

Simplifies part inspection through the comparison of measured points, clouds, and meshes, to all CAD file formats. Check part characteristics such as position and profile quickly and easily using a variety of alignment, analysis, and reporting techniques.

Analyze to CAD with imported data sets or directly from measured points, clouds, or meshes from 3D measuring devices including portable probing and scanning systems and both manual and CNC CMMs to analyze part tolerance compliance.

Key Features

  • Automatically apply model-based tolerances from CAD product manufacturing information
  • Fast analysis of data to all CAD formats and entity types, with powerful and easy-to-use best-fit features offering extensive constraint options
  • Instantly identify quality issues with vibrant color deviation maps and create inspection reports in all common output formats

ANALYSIS is at the heart of the Inspection & Analysis Suite, which includes these modules:

  • CAD – Verisurf’s foundation module that includes a comprehensive computer-aided design system.
  • MEASURE – Interface to the CMM’s control system, joystick measuring, reporting, Teach Mode, and more.
  • ANALYSIS – Analyze measured data to any CAD Model and create revealing inspection reports.


Verisurf Reverse

Verisurf’s 3D scanning and reverse engineering software Verisurf Reverse can generate 3D CAD models from point clouds captured from non-contact measurement methods, such as laser scanners, photogrammetry and arms (like the 3DGage). 

Included in Verisurf’s 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering Suite, Reverse creates, manages and reverse engineers point clouds that can be made into meshes and surfaces for manufacturing, inspection and tool fabrication.

By utilizing its advanced metrology tools, Verisurf Reverse creates and custom-fits lines, arcs, planes, splines, spheres, freeform surfaces, and more, even with sparse data.

Save RE Models in Numerous CAD Formats

  • IGES
  • STEP AP242
  • STL
  • CATIA V4/V5
  • AutoCAD
  • ACIS (SAT )
  • Parasolid
  • VDA

Highly-Accurate Autoamted Surfacing

The Quick Surface option allows for creating more simple, more accurate modeling from meshes, derived from scan data or STL files. Quick Surface generates complex polygonal meshes with very little button-pushing, making it easy for novice users to navigate.

To learn more about Quick Surface, watch the video demonstration:


  • Load data from any scanner using industry-standard
    STL, colored PLY, or OBJ mesh files
  • Reduce and clean up the number of polygons while
    keeping the original reference mesh for best results
  • Quad surfacing enables freeform surface reconstruction
    (not possible with standard surfacing methods)
  • Real-time fit analysis and advanced snap-to-mesh
    Technology allows novices to create shapes in no time
  • Easily create smooth, high-quality NURB surfaces on
    organic shapes with the click of a mouse button
