Metlogix M3



Features & Benefits

Designed for Multi-Touch software control. In addition to the conventional mouse interface, expanded Multi-Touch logic allows for one-touch feature measurements as well as versatile pan and zoom of the live video image and the active part view.
Increase the efficiency of feature measurements, feature data manipulation, and reporting tasks with a simple pinch zoom, swipe pan, or double click.

• Advanced video probe toolbox.
The custom Eye Measure™ probe captures complex edges by creating a custom “tool zone” according to the finger path drawn on your touch screen enabled system. The Measure Logic™ probe’s intelligent design provides an instant feature determination and measurement with a single click or press. The Vtouch™ probe provides industry first video touch probe functionality, with simple acquisition of individual points on a feature’s edge, just a single press or click away. The simple DXF Cross-hair tool is always available for manual cross-hair probing and can be translated or rotated within the video image for flexible manual probe measurements.

“The Measure Logic™ probe’s intelligent design provides an instant feature determination and measurement .”

• Support up to 8 channels of programmable light control.
On-screen controls let you adjust Coaxial, Sub-stage, and Quadrant Ring light output accommodating a wide range of measuring requirements.
Your light levels are also remembered and may be recalled for program playback.

• Advanced Edge Teach.
Improve edge detection performance under a variety of image and lighting conditions. Features with poor edge contrast, or difficult spacing can be captured in a snap using the M3’s manual teach function. Press and hold on an edge in any video image to specify a teach region.

• Graphics-based “ Part View ” constructions.
Generate popular construction types, like Distances and Tangent Lines, from within the graphical part view itself.

Supported construction types include:
Average Mid/Center Point(s) End Point(s) Intersections Shortest Distance Farthest Distance Tangent Line(s) Gage Circle(s) Bolt Circle Angle Compliments Perpendicular/Parallel Line(s) Offset Skew Lines

• Quick Annotate and Markup.
Gain access to instant feature markup tools using the part view “Gesture Menu”. Add customized feature data to your live video image or part view displaying only the desired coefficients. You may annotate one or several features simultaneously with the smart marquee feature selection.

• Geometric tolerancing.
Measure features, set nominals, apply tolerances and view deviation results with only a few quick clicks. You may also apply a variety of popular tolerance types to features in the standard “feature-to-feature” fashion, or utilize the “place tolerancing” system for applications where tolerances are specified in a block tolerance style call out. For these cases the M3 software let’s you enter and apply universal tolerance values according to your feature resolution groupings.
Supported tolerances include:
X/Y/Z Positional
Diameter/Radius/Length/Width Size
Theta (Angle)
True Position (LMC/MMC Modifiers)



• Feature Detail Graphics.
Individual feature views provide you with informative drawings displaying point cloud distributions, as well as nominal deviations, and tolerance results. Scroll through your measured features list from this view for a feature by feature display of Actual, Nominal, Tolerance, Deviation, and Data Fit Type information.
