This course provides an introduction to NRK’s SpatialAnalyzer software as a tool for performing common measurement, analysis, and reporting tasks. It explores techniques using SA for common metrology duties such as measurement, alignment, real-time build, inspection, geometric analysis, and reporting.

The course includes topics such as metrology architecture, SA's components, tool sets for application solutions, SA instrument interfaces, general user options and processes, and hands-on training with the software.

Featured Topics

  • FUNDAMENTALS - SA’s architecture and nomenclature. Explore the workspace. File organisation.
  • MEASUREMENT - Tooling definitions. Interface with instruments. Instrument toolbars. Measurement profiles. Drift checks. Watch windows.
  • TOOLKIT - Geometry fitting. Create inspection templates. Perform inspection routines.
  • INSTRUMENT ALIGNMENT - Best-fit transformation. Frame Wizard. Quick align to CAD. Measure nominals. Basic relationship fit. Nominal geometry relationships.
  • WORKING WITH CAD - Import models. Reverse surfaces. Create objects from surfaces. Compare to measured data.
  • BASIC REPORTING - Vector Groups. Dimensioning. Callouts. Report generation. PDF output.

This course assumes no prior knowledge or experience with SA, but does assume some knowledge of geometry and basic portable metrology principles.

Our open courses offer an excellent opportunity to learn and network with other like minded professionals in a state-of-the-art training environment.  All course literature, certificates, lunch and refreshments are included.

Alternatively, we can also deliver bespoke training courses to fit specific functional requirements at customer sites.
