Axel Cloud is a universal 3D inspection and analysis software.

The Axel Cloud is the choice for general purpose measuring arms as well as for multisensor complex inspection systems. It expands functionality of our supported range with point clouds analysis.
It features range of point cloud operations. cloud toolkit for extracting geometric features from Point Clouds, cloud and profile best fit alignment methods as well as data colour map.

Cloud Inspection

Scan Cloud Data

Axel Scan supports range of point cloud digitizing devices to collect live data. It can also operate in the off-line fashion by importing cloud data saved as meshes or unorganised data points.

Import CAD model

Interfaces to various CAD formats are provided. They include IGES, CATIA v4 and v5, ProEngineer, STEP, VDA.

Deviation Map

Calculate scanned cloud deviations from the nominal model and analyse them through the colour map.

Cloud Toolkit

Extract dimensions from point clouds, polygonal models and nominal dimensions from CAD model.
Direct extraction

Toolbox to extract geometric features directly from the cloud/mesh without the need for the nominal CAD model. Available features include: Point, Cylinder, Plane, Torus, Cone, Sphere, Ring, Rectangular and Round Slot.

CAD extraction

Automatic extraction of geometric features from the mesh. Features which have been previously defined from CAD model, are automatically measured on the mesh.

Point Cloud Operations

Cleaning, Filtering and creating meshes from scanned data points.

Alignment Functions

Alignment methods to cover all inspection needs with Feature based best fit with constraints, RPS and 3-2-1 methods.
Best Fit from Cloud

Best fit to align the measured Cloud with the CAD nominal model. Automatic or matching Surface Points pre-alignments are available.

Best Fit from Profile

Best fit to align the measured Cloud cross-section with the CAD nominal cross-section.

Multiple device positions alignment

This alignment mechanism allows moving a measuring device and then continuing to acquire extended section of the measuured part.

With plentiful measurement engine and mathematical algorithms certified by PTB, Axel Cloud is meant to allow users to extract meaningful information from 3D data.

CAD data import and export

Extract measured geometrical features and dimensions from point clouds, polygonal models or probed points. The nominal features and dimensions are extracted from a CAD model. The nominal features and dimensions are extracted directly from a CAD model.

Supported Devices

Our software iinterfaces with wide range of measuring devices such as portable probing devices, point cloud scanning devices, manual and CNC CMMs as well as Vision CMMs.
