Mitutoyo has released version 1.4 of its MicCat Planner for CMMs. The software generates CNC CMM measuremennt programs quickly and easily.
MiCAT Planner automates measurement program generation utilizing digital (CAD) models containing Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) information, along with your specific Dimensional Measuring Equipment (DME).
