Benefit from our powerful PolyWorks® plug-ins

Now available in the "D3D++ Standard" and "D3D++ Pro Automation" versions

The PolyWorks® Plug-In D3D++ is developed by Duwe-3d AG and enables the direct import & export of company-specific measuring and inspection plans, the connection of hand-held measuring devices and much more ...

The time-consuming manual creation of nominal geometries, measuring points, sections and RPS points in PolyWorks|Inspector™ with the correct designations and tolerances is no longer necessary. The PolyWorks|Inspector project is automatically created, aligned and evaluated in accordance with the inspection plan. The results can be exported to the appropriate company-specific data format. The formats of the following OEMs are integrated: Audi, BMW, Daimler, Opel and VW. Furthermore, many additional functions and macros are integrated via D3D++.


We are a member of the OPC Foundation.

OPC UA Logo (Color_Large).png
OPC UA is a data exchange standard for industrial communication that is independent of manufacturer, programming language and operating system. OPC UA can semantically describe machine data and make it accessible in vertical and horizontal directions. OPC UA is secure and reliable and enables interoperability between devices from different manufacturers.
