Reporting and analysis
The standard MODUS Reporter provides traditional reports, whilst the standalone MODUS CHART application delivers full-colour pictorial inspection reports using the CAD model or representation of the component. Inspection results can also be output in a range of formats for further analysis.
A standalone application for MODUS metrology software with enhanced graphical reporting
The MODUS CHART software package simplifies report interpretation by displaying graphical information on the true location on the part using QIF XML files and the part CAD model.
The enhanced reporting functionality includes:
- On-CAD plots with flexible callout positioning and configuration.
- Surface heatmap colouring and automatically generated feature tables for the display of all feature tolerances.
- Errors-only reporting option that allows for the quick creation of reports which only include features that are out of tolerance, reducing report size and focusing on the results which are most important.
- Two different methods for creating reports. Feature-based reporting groups tolerances together and characteristic-based reporting displays each individual tolerance separately.
- Automatic reporting option that creates reports quickly and easily. This includes Errors only for focusing on the most important results.
