MODUS Planning Suite

MODUS Planning Suite is designed for use in conjunction with MODUS 1.9 (or later) to simplify the creation of DMIS code for curve and surface measurement

MODUS Planning suite monitor

The MODUS Planning Suite is modular, meaning that only the functionality required needs to be purchased. There are three modular applications separately available:

  • MODUS Blade planner generates scans for blades
  • MODUS Patch planner generates sweep scans on surfaces
  • MODUS Curve planner generates curve scans on surfaces or edges

In generating the scan paths, the Planners use the capabilities of the Renishaw REVO®, a continuously-indexable 5-axis measuring head and probing system.

MODUS Planning Suite is used offline (not connected to measuring equipment).
