This holiday season marks our second annual 3D printed ornament challenge. We had so much fun running this competition last year that we couldn’t resist doing it again. So once again, we will be hosting a fun competition to get your creative juices flowing. We challenge you to design your own 3D printable ornament for a chance to win some great prizes. Tis the season to give your friends, family and loved ones a meaningful [...]

https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/d8rs1ft8ak?embedType=async&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640 Inspect a Scan Without CAD Model - Geomagic Control X Generally when we’re using Control X for inspection, we’re comparing one scan file to another scan file, or a scan file to a nominal cad file. But sometimes, we have the need to inspect or measure a one off part without a CAD file to compare it to.

It's a powerful solution for improving tool motion and eliminating retracts when working with difficult surfaces.s.
Reverse Engineering Back to Native CAD In this webinar on demand we demonstrate Design X and how it differs from Wrap for reverse engineering. Whether your need is to convert physical parts into fully editable CAD models, or to use models for FEA/toolpath generation, this Webinar will guide you through the process and how it works. https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/m9ebrivpts?embedType=async&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640
Adding NC Base to a Cimco DNC Installation In the first chapter of this webinar series we will exhibit the use of Master 3D Gage. We will demonstrate applying targets to a model to execute a 3-2-1 Alignment by way of using a 5mm Renishaw Ruby probe. Once aligned, we will use the BUILD module to verify the alignment and manually check coordinate locations on the model as well as establish how to check multiple [...]
Late last month I had the opportunity (along with others from Cimquest) to attend the annual Desktop Metal conference in Jacksonville Florida. Unfortunately, the sunshine state didn't live up to expectations with overcast skies, high winds, and temperatures in the low 50's. Everyone seemed to blame us northerners on dragging the arctic winds with us on our travels. However, despite the cool temperatures, we had a great time gaining a better understanding of the hot [...]
