New release of In-Sight Explorer

Hold on to your hats folks, because version 4.9.0 is going to knock them off.

Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but reading the release notes, (you can get them here: ) it seems there are some useful upgrades. Two I found particularly interesting were:
  • A Surface Flaw tool in EasyBuilder and the spreadsheet. (This sounds similar to the flaw detect tool Keyence has been touting for a few months.)
  • A Scene Correction tool, (EasyBuilder and the spreadsheet,) to compensate for uneven lighting.
Not listed in the release notes, but discussed in the SmartList forum, this release also fixes a conflict between In-Sight Explorer and AutoCAD LT14. I hadn’t realized this, but apparently, “The new AutoCAD and In-Sight cannot coexist on the same platform.” That could be an issue for many engineers packing a host of software on their laptops.

And if you do decide to upgrade, don’t overlook the camera firmware.
