Mastercam Milling, Turning, and Mill-Turn

Choosing which kind of CNC machining to use — mill, lathe, or mill-turn — can be overwhelming. All three techniques are forms of subtractive manufacturing; they cut material away rather than add material on, unlike additive processes like 3D printing. But what sets them apart from each other?

Metrology Minute – Traditional 2D Drawing inspection

By |January 7th, 2022|Metrology Minute|

In our last Metrology Minute post, we demonstrated how Control X can be used to extract feature size and location information directly from the scan, without the use of a nominal CAD model. With this route, a more traditional type of inspection could take place using just the scan of a manufactured part or assembly. We explained how a region’s model may be used to identify and measure analytic features, directly from a scan.
