Training Videos

We’re dedicated to making sure your get the most from owning a 4D InSpec. Our applications engineers are happy to help. We’ve made several videos on how to use software features, and best practices for hardware, too. 

Don’t see what you need to know? Contact our service and support department for help — or check out the downloadable guides on our Apps Note page.

Below, find Software Tool how-to videos to help you analyze your data quickly and easily, and Hardware Help videos for getting the best measurements from your gauge. 

Software Tools How-to

Calculating Radius of Curvature

Learn how to measure radius of curvature such as rods, grooves, cylinders and spherical machined parts.

This tool is great for qualifying metal parts like turbine fins, engine parts, bores and worn grooves.

4D InSpec measures large and small radii and blended radii. With on-screen results, you can analyze and profile in seconds.

Shape removal tools to aid analysis

Shape removal helps measure smaller features in a field of view without the influence of large form. For example, a pit on a cylindrical surface will measure shallower when a profile is drawn circumferentially, than a profile drawn along the axis of the cylinder, because the edges of the pit appear lower in the direction of arc, due to the curve.

Learn how to use the shape removal tools to subtract out the overall surface shape, so that individual defects can be accurately measured.

Using Reference Masks to Simplify Analysis

Reference Masks help you measure a feature as it relates to an adjacent area. For example, the slope of a chamfer as compared to the top surface.

In this quick video, Applications Engineer Jared Wheeler shows you how this software tool works, step by step.

Automatically qualify features with Feature Analysis tool

The Feature Analysis tool lets you take a measurement and instantly determine if features are in or out of specification.

Learn how the system works and how to use the feature analysis parameters to set your own analysis criteria. And save your analysis as a file you can reload later to continue the same kind of measurements.
