Title: What Can DMIS 5.2 Do For You?

The Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS) is the first data interoperability protocol standard created specifically for dimensional metrology. DMIS applications are multi-facetted. The standard can behave as a coordinate metrology language to execute measurement part programs, or it can be used as a neutral data exchange mechanism for part programs and measurement results. DMIS is full featured and has many successful implementations. It also has a strong reputation as a progressive standard, one that has been responsive to user needs and technology advances. It is maintained and improved upon by a volunteer committee, the DMIS Standards Committee (DSC), under the auspices of the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC Inc.). DMIS has progressed as its eighth version and its sixth as a national and/or international standard. Some notable advances of DMIS have included: • support for thin-walled (i.e., sheet-metal) measurements • alignment with American and International tolerancing standards • complete suite of measure features • harmonization with complementary standards and specifications • extension of additional sensors and scanning processes • introduction of measurement uncertainty computations • tighter CAD associativity • enhancements for multi-axis scanning • provisioning for functional subsets (application profiles) • progression of conformance class validations • designation of key characteristics with criticality designators • removal of ambiguities and syntactic limitations • clarification through additional diagrams and code fragments • resolution to over 600 standard improvement requests
