The ANSI approved DMIS 5.0 is still available.
Available only by download.
This improved version of the Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS), revision 5.0, has more than 140 enhancements over DMIS version 4.0 (approved 2001) including: Enhanced Scanning; a Completed Suite of Measure Features; Continued Alignment with GD&T Standards; an Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty; the addition of major and minor words; example codes, macros, diagrams that remove ambiguities, and much more.
The objective of the Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS) is to provide a standard for the bi-directional communication of inspection data between computer systems and inspection equipment. The standard is a vocabulary of terms, which establishes a neutral format for inspection programs and inspection results data.
While primarily designed for communication between automated equipment, DMIS is designed to be both man-readable and man-writable, allowing inspection programs to be written and inspection results to be analyzed without the use of computer aids. With the enhancement of the High Level Language extensions, DMIS can function and be implemented as a DME (Dimensional Measuring Equipment) language.
DMIS provides the vocabulary to pass inspection programs to dimensional measuring equipment and to pass measurement and process data back to an analysis, collection, and/or archiving system. A piece of equipment which interfaces to others, using the DMIS vocabulary, may do so directly or it may have a pre-processor to convert its own native data formats into the DMIS format and/or a postprocessor to convert the DMIS format into its own data structure.
