Imageware in the future

Imageware in the future

Imageware in the future

I'm not sure how many view this forum, but hopefully there are some experienced Imageware users that can help:

When is the next release of Imageware scheduled ?
Does UGS offer a "What's new" for the next release?
As far as future direction, will Imageware continue it's focus as a class A surfacing tool, or will it's point processing capabilities be further developed ( compared to Polyworks for example -   )

http://www.innovmetric.com/Manufacturing/home.aspx?lang=en )?

I would like to have the ability to
- create centerlines/guidestrings for scanned point clouds defining a 3 dimensional cable or hose.
- extract feature lines from point clouds for quick NURB surface creation
- embed GD&T into manufacturing models
My main application is reverse engineering physical parts into UG cad models  ( parts already installed in a  vehicle -  prismatics, freeform cables/hoses, limited requirement for class A surfaces).
I have basic training in version 11, but am still on the steep part of the  Imageware (and reverse engineering) learning curve.

RE: Imageware in the future

The rumor was that version 12 would be out in December. My guess would be that they keep working on UI instead of usefull things. I liked the old UI in 9 with the tool sheleves much better. It is not supossed to be rolled into UG but continue as a stand alone product. It is hard to get good information. Hopefully we will see it soon.
