CAPPS DMIS Inspection Software

CAPPS is one of the first CAD based online CMM software. AAT developed CAPPS to be an upwardly mobile metrology software with a strong graphics engine, complete CAD capability, a powerful programming language with DMIS and tree view structure as well as a flexible reporting environment. With over 20 years of evolution, CAPPS has been the leader in CAD based measurement software. AAT offers several products derived from the CAPPS system serving specific needs of customers.

Powerful Native DMIS programming with high level commands
Complete PTB certified Geometry calculations
ANSI/ISO compliant GD&T
Powerful CAD interface with auto feature detections
Measure without dependence on CAD or automatically with CAD
Iterative and bestfit alignment methods with machine and CAD
Graphical and SPC reporting capabilities
Export data in many formats such as Step, Excel, SPC
Powerful Point Cloud metrology and direct laser interfaces

CAPPS-DMIS has 3 levels to meet any measurement requirement

CappsDmis Advanced

CappsDmis is a full featured metrology software with advanced options and interfaces allowing you to upgrade controllers, and sensors to the latest technology such as full 5 axis probing, laser scanners and vision sensors. With a powerful CAD model interface, advanced alignment methods and complete ANSI/ISO compliant GD&T features, it can be used for any measurement projects.  


Capps Basic Plus is a complete measurement software with CAD capability for geometrical features. Parts can be measured with or without CAD models automatically creating DMIS programs. Basic plus is a great middle ground inspection software that has nearly all of the advanced-type functionality without all of the extra CAD functionality.


Capps Powerfully Simple is the "best bang for the buck" measurement software with complete geometrical measuring capabilities. CAPPS PS is based for users who don't need to integrate CAD into their inspection process. But much like our other software levels, Powerfully Simple allows the use of basic CAD models for full 3D inspection graphics.


CappsNC bring the CMM capability to any manufacturing machine. With an advanced virtual kinematic model and sophisticated offline program generation capability, any machine tool can be programmed to measure complex features and generate measurement & GD&T reports. 


Our Services

Quality Control

We can help develop the best measurement strategy for your parts. Our CMM experts can help you resolve most challenging metrology questions, develop inspection plans and help you develop your measurement programs in native DMIS language for our CappsDMIS CMM software.


We offer machine commissioning to prepare your machine to perform accurate measurement tasks which will help your manufacturing cycle.  We can develop part programs that will be integrated into your manufacturing cycle or executed by the operator. We can perform machine accuracy tests to make sure your machine works at the desired performance.

Offline Programming Services

Our CappsNC  and CappsDMIS offline programming systems can help you develop inspection plans, develop complete inspection programs and simulate to have the most confidence before using any time with the machine. With our virtual machine models and interactive simulation capabilities, we can help develop your programs before your parts are ready and your machine start manufacture them.


Our suite of software products and experienced engineers can help you design an automation cycle which includes dimensional measurement within the system. By interfacing the machine tools with measurement devices or with part moving devices such as robots, we can help you develop a completely automated and Adaptive Manufacturing system.

Data Reporting

Our CappsNC ad CappsDMIS software have excellent reporting functions which can be automated to generate graphical, textual and SPC reports automatically. Measurement results from different sources and sites can be merged and assembled into a single report. Our DataView software can import measurement results in real time from various measurement devices and display in a simple view for quick assessment. 


We offer training at customer site, at our site or over web customized for customer needs.
