ppe

The Axel Foundation Program is the main program for geometrical measurements. It also comprises the basic package for the entire range of the Axel applications and other software and uses the latest and most innovative in software engineering technology.
The Foundation Program is Axel's main screen a user starts the operation from. From this initial point the user can access all the features of the program. The Program has the capability to measure any type of shapes including spheres, cones, cylinders or flat surfaces or a combination of any of them.
It can be used in stand-alone applications or in combination with any of the other Axel range of programs to provide additional enhanced features and benefits. It is particularly adapted for use for manual CMM machines.

Alignment Features 
Multiple coordinate systems and extensive alignment options galleries with graphical representation in the Measure Window. 3-2-1 alignment added with direct data points inspection.

Geometric functions with Geometrical Tolerancing 
Set of 2D and 3D geometrical features such as point, circle, line, cylinder, cone, sphere, gauge diameter is provided. Algorithms tested with PTB and NPL standard data sets.

Intelligent Constructions
Axel allows calculating constructions virtually by type of feature. Program automatically selects which result to calculate for each construction. For example there is only one intersection which can be applied to any types of features.

Layers System
Measure Window layers are available for measured features and CAD geometry.

Multiple Measure Window Part Views
