Manufacturing Soup

By |2021-11-05T08:22:09-04:00November 2nd, 2021|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, 3D Scanning|0 Comments

Additive design, 3D printing, Traditional CAD, Traditional CAM, Hybrid Machining, 3D Scanning, Scan Processing, Reverse Engineering, Inspection . . . Each discipline is evolving exponentially on its own, but each also crosses over into neighboring technologies, all contributing to the rapidly evolving world we refer to as “Manufacturing”. In studying the sciences, one can quickly come to the conclusion that all disciplines are subsets of Physics. When Biology, Math, and Chemistry students advance to high-level [...]

Programming Your CMM From Inside Mastercam

By |2021-10-05T09:22:44-04:00October 5th, 2021|Categories: 3d Scanning & Reverse Engineering|0 Comments

Is your CMM programmed by complex, clumsy software? Is it difficult to find and train CMM operators to develop efficient inspection plans? Are the results/reports generated by your software all text-based and challenging for you and your customers to interpret? The Universal CMM (UCMM) is incredible technology that runs ‘inside’ Mastercam and can replace your current CMM programming software. Since this is a software-only solution, you won’t need to scrap all of your existing inspection [...]

What Will Manufacturing Look Like in 40 Years?

By |2021-09-09T08:39:11-04:00September 9th, 2021|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg|0 Comments

Manufacturing 40 Years ago Back in the late 70’s, I started my career at Grumman Aerospace and we had all NC (Numerical Control) machines in our plants as well as the very first licenses of Catia ever used in the U.S. ‘CNC’ (Computerized Numerical Control) technology was extremely new and had not yet made its way to our plant. Our machines to manufacture parts had no memory and were driven by mylar or paper tapes [...]

Streamlined Workflows Deliver Ease of Use for 3D Inspection

By |2016-12-15T14:30:52-05:00December 14th, 2016|Categories: 3D Scanning|0 Comments

A major step forward in metrology software By Joel Pollet The new Geomagic Control X inspection product from 3D Systems offers a computer-aided design (CAD)-like interface and an improved workflow for Geomagic Control users. By including extended product manufacturing information support, users of popular CAD systems can now seamlessly transfer critical inspection information, such as datum features, directly from their CAD product to Control X without the need to re-create it from scratch. By having [...]
