HighRES Inc’s software is integrated with Autodesk Inventor 2024

LA JOLLA, Calif.—HighRES Inc., operating under the name, reported that its reverse engineering software, the “RE” app 2024, has been certified under the Autodesk Certified Apps Program. The certification reflects the software’s “exceptional quality and seamless integration capabilities with Autodesk Inventor 2024,” the company said in a release.

The RE app 2024 is specifically engineered to establish seamless connections with Faro Arms and Romer Absolute Arms. This integration enhances collaboration between portable coordinate measuring machines (PCMMs) and Inventor, empowering users to capture intricate details such as tooling, worn parts, and obsolete components with precision, according to the release.

“The combination of portable CMMs, calipers, and micrometers provides a comprehensive and flexible metrology solution,” said Braxton Carter, president of HighRES, Inc., in the release. “Manufacturers and engineers can achieve accurate and efficient measurements across a wide range of components and applications by leveraging the unique strengths of each tool.”

Synergy between the RE app and these measurement tools not only streamlines the measurement process, but also ensures that a diverse array of components can be accurately assessed. This contributes to increased efficiency and productivity across various industrial applications, the company noted.

The integration of 3D measuring arms with Inventor is said to establish a robust tool for 3D measurement, digitization of wireframes, and the capture of sketch planes and circles for fixtures, tools, molds, and worn parts. This innovation empowers shop floor managers to minimize waste, enhance efficiency, and boost floor productivity, ultimately leading to increased profitability, according to HighRES.

The RE app’s intuitive workflow supports the 3D/2D capture of physical parts surfaces, allowing users to effortlessly capture points, lines, splines, planes, circles, and rectangles by placing the tactile probe tip on the part surface.

“With the add-in, you will no longer need multiple stand-alone reverse engineering software solutions,” said Carter. “Simply 3D digitize, reverse engineer, 3D/2D measure, or inspect directly in Autodesk Inventor.”, headquartered in La Jolla, is focused on developing direct CAD reverse engineering and measurement software.
