Control X – 2D Twist Analysis In this week’s 2 Minute Tuesday, we will examine the 2D Twist Analysis tool in Control X which analyzes the deviation of the twist angle between section profiles of the Reference and Measured Data.
Performing 2D Twist Angle Analysis in Control X In this edition of our Metrology Minute, we are going to discuss the 2D Twist Analysis tool in Control X. It analyzes the deviation of twist angle between section profiles of the Reference and Measured data. Let’s use the turbine scan, aligned to the nominal CAD model shown below as an example. You would start with a pre-aligned model of Measured to Reference data. If you want [...]
Tuccamirgan's Pipe of Peace: Scanned and 3D Printed In this week’s 2 Minute Tuesday, we will take a look at how 3D Scanning, Scan Processing, and 3D Printing technology can be used to intricately recreate important artifacts. In this case, we were granted the privilege of recreating Chief Tuccamirgan of the Wickcheoche tribe’s peace pipe that was provided by the Hunterdon County Historical Society.
Solidworks & Control X — Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) In this week's 2 Minute Tuesday, we will examine how a Product Manufacturing Information (or PMI) model, generated in Solidworks, may be used to automate the inspection process in Control X. PMI is a fairly new tool that enables manufacturing information to remain with CAD models through downstream applications.

The Freescan UE Pro is our latest and most impressive handheld laser scanner. Similar to the UE11 and UE7, the UE Pro also has settings for reflective and black parts, making it a very durable option to scan multiple part textures without the need to spray the surface. Developed by Shining 3D, this scanner’s accuracy specification is +/- 20 microns or +/-.00079”. More importantly, the Pro’s resolution can be dialed into an incredible 10 microns [...]
Design X is a remarkable product that enables the creation of a fully-featured CAD model from a scan or point cloud from any device that can produce one of these files. It can return planes, sketches with constraints, dimensions, features, and can generally build completely native, history-based CAD models for a variety of the most common CAD systems including Solidworks, Solid Edge, Inventor, Pro-e, Creo, and NX. Today, the requirements for a fully native CAD [...]
