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 [...]

Color Map Fitting Inside Control X

By |2021-10-27T09:02:25-04:00October 27th, 2021|Categories: 3D Scanning|0 Comments

In this blog post, we are going to take a look at Color Map Fitting inside of Control X. Color Map Fitting is a useful tool for analyzing the tolerances of 3D scan mesh files, relative to the original model. The image above shows a CAD model of a crankshaft with the scan mesh superimposed on the model. The image below shows the Color Map Fitting. We first selected the flatness of the scanned mesh [...]
