ZEISS Inspect

Use ZEISS Inspect (formerly GOM Inspect Professional) for simple or complex inspection tasks with any brand of 3D scanner.

Raise inspection to the next level

ZEISS Inspect is your software for detailed evaluations of 3D data

Use ZEISS Inspect for simple or complex inspection tasks – from capturing the part to be inspected, mesh processing, CAD import, necessary GD&T calculations to trend analyses, digital assembly or proprietary inspections.

ZEISS Inspect will save you time and money. Due to its active parametric concept, all work steps are traceable and you can create project templates at any given point in your current project. Accordingly, you will obtain accurate results even faster than before.

Industry standard for 3D inspections and evaluations

With ZEISS Inspect you can raise your 3D inspections to the next level.

ZEISS Inspect latest features include:

  • Photorealistic rendering to simulate your parts in digital assemblies and real environments and assess the influence of light and shading
  • New reporting functionalities using smart diagram views and a modernized UI for creating intelligent result reports
  • Smart scanning capabilities support fully automated ScanBox measurements to increase productivity and minimize user interaction

ZEISS Inspect Capabilities

Making accurate 3D models has never been easier

Alignment Functions

ZEISS software includes all default alignment functions. This includes: RPS alignment, hierarchical alignment based on geometry elements, alignment in a local coordinate system, using reference points and various best-fit procedures such as global and local best-fit. In addition, customer-specific alignments, for example, for turbine blades, such as Balanced Beam or Equalized Nested, can be executed.

Blade Inspection

ZEISS Inspect combines general inspection functions with application-specific evaluations. The native quality control functions for the analysis of airfoils and turbine blades include inspection of the profile mean line, profile centroid and the profile thickness of turbine blades based on 2D sections. The center of gravity, radii and twist of the profile can also be computed.

Blisk Inspection

ZEISS software offers features that simplify the inspection of blisks or “bladed disks” for the user.

CAD Import

Formats such as IGES, JT Open and STEP, but also CATIA, NX, SOLIDWORKS and PTC Creo, can be imported into the GOM software simply by drag & drop.

Comprehensive Volume Visualization

In ZEISS Volume Inspect you can evaluate every element of your component – even internal structures.

Curve Inspection

Based on fully digitized data, you can apply construction functions for curves and visualize their properties in ZEISS software.

Defect Analysis

Perform automated evaluations of defects such as pores or shrinkage cavities based on a wide range of criteria.

Digital Assembly

With ZEISS Inspect, you can easily assemble your parts virtually and check their function.

Geometric Elements (GD&T)

GD&T provides metrologists with precise specifications for the verification of a part. ZEISS supports ISO and ASME standards and implements them in the software.

Import Volume Data

ZEISS Volume Inspect is a stand-alone software. You can directly import all common formats of your CT data – irrespective of which computed tomography system you use for measuring.

Mesh Editing

You can smooth, thin and refine polygon meshes, but also fill holes in the mesh and extract curvature lines.

Nominal-actual Comparison

In ZEISS Inspect, you can compare polygon meshes with the drawing or directly with the CAD data of a surface comparison.

Parametric Inspection

Thanks to the basic parametric concept of the ZEISS software, all process steps are traceable in GOM Inspect Pro.

Python Interface

ZEISS Inspect stores records as Python scripts. You can run it repeatedly or you can adjust or generalize the recorded script by editing it.


The ZEISS software allows you to easily create reports with snapshots, images, tables, diagrams, text and graphics and export them as PDF documents.

Surface Inspection

With ZEISS software you can easily evaluate surface defects. The objective results are available faster than with a grindstone.

Work Faster with Templates

With ZEISS Inspect, you can easily create project templates. This allows you to complete recurring evaluations quickly and easily.

ZEISS Inspect GD&T

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing of a component

You can use the GD&T functions to determine whether a bore hole is manufactured with the proper fit, whether it has the correct direction or whether existing form errors are within the permissible limits.

ZEISS Inspect Assembly

Assemble your products digitally

Do you manufacture your components at different sites? With ZEISS Inspect digital assembly you can easily verify whether the different components match, or which ones have the best-fit (cross-mating).

ZEISS Inspect Report

Create detailed reports

After having completed the inspection, you will want to present your results in a visually appealing layout. With ZEISS Inspect you do not need an extra program for that purpose. Instead, you can create your report with images, tables, diagrams and texts at the push of a button.

ZEISS Volume Inspection

Volume Inspection

The software displays the entire part including the internal structures and can visually separate between different materials. You can cut the volume at any point and view the object layer by layer to see even the finest details. Defects or blowholes present in the part can be checked dimensionally. Furthermore, internal structures and geometries can be inspected and compared to CAD.

ZEISS Inpsect Benefits
