  • Open DMIS to PC DMIS

    One of our die builders has purchased a CMM retrofit and will be running Open DMIS. If it is possible and any of you experts have converted Open DMIS programs to PC DMIS enlighten me on what to expect.

    I'm running version 3.207 Beta, don't know what version this tool shop will be running.

    Thanks

    I tried it but didn't have much luck with it. The alignments that OpenDmis use are a little differently setup than PCDMIS alignments, but that may have changed. That was 6months ago when I tried it.

      Thanks neighbor. I tried to convince this company to go with PC-DMIS but they chose the cheaper route.

        Perry,

        You know I love Pc-dmis, but have some major issues with the business direction with Hexagon and some of its ways....Think of the last 15 releases of Pc-dmis, do you really think they are better than the version you are using ????

        Your version works pretty darn good, doesn't it ??

        Anyway, OD is a good alternative and the programs should read in just fine. OD uses pure dmis and Pc-dmis can read this in , just fine, just can't go the other way.

        The only thing you might run into....OD uses the newest version of DMIS, your older Pc-dmis might not support all the commands....call someone or ask the developer.

        If you find you are having some issues with the alignment, create a new program in Pc-dmis with the alignment you want, then save and close.

        Read in the DMI file and create a new program. Open the other program with the good alignment and copy and paste....this may have some glitches, but I would happy to give it a try for you, I have used LK dmis without a hitch many times before,.

          If you are checking machined parts, I think OpenDmis will work great for you. If you are checking sheet metal parts, I have found that PCDMIS will give you more options to work with sheet metal. Like I said though, it has been about 6 months since I have used OpenDmis. I'm sure they have corrected some of the issues that I had encountered. They are very nice people. Good Luck on whatever comes out of this Perry.
