Introducing Shining 3D Freescan UE X7 and X11

By |2021-03-04T08:22:21-05:00March 4th, 2021|Categories: 3D Scanning|0 Comments

Two brand new Shining 3D Freescan scanners called the UE X7 and UE X11 offer a new threshold for high precision scanning combined with a lighter design and enhanced functionality. The enhanced software can import scans into Control X with a single mouse click, completely streamlining the scan-based inspection process. Accuracy for both the UE X7 and UE X11 is an incredible +/-20 microns (+/-.00078”) with an excellent volumetric accuracy of 20 microns + 40 [...]

Maximum Material Condition

By |2021-03-03T08:06:40-05:00March 3rd, 2021|Categories: 3D Scanning, Inspection|0 Comments

Why would one want to use a Maximum Material Condition for a true positional callout for clearance holes? Maximum Material Condition or MMC in GD&T is added to the GD&T symbol. The symbol is shown below. In this example, we have a .137 diameter clearance hole that is defined as .137 Rad +/-.010”. Let’s assume the hole is manufactured (drilled) and inspected and it comes out as a .1303 radius, placing it .0067 undersize. There [...]

How to Inspect a Scan Without a CAD Model

By |2021-02-26T08:50:36-05:00February 26th, 2021|Categories: 3D Scanning, 3d Scanning & Reverse Engineering|0 Comments

When using Control X for inspection, you are usually comparing one scan file to another scan file, or a scan file to a nominal CAD file. But sometimes you may have the need to inspect or measure a one-off part without a CAD file to compare it to. This blog post will explain how to take an isolated 3D scan in Control X and take measurements from it. In the example part above we have [...]

Creating a Water-Tight Model from CAT scan

By |2021-02-24T08:22:36-05:00February 24th, 2021|Categories: 3D Scanning|0 Comments

This blog post will show you an advanced method to clean up internal portions of a CAT scan with the goal of creating a water-tight model. When processing CAT scan data the biggest challenge is cleaning up the geometry. Typically, the internal geometry of a CAT scan contains disconnected poly-faces, which makes it difficult to select and delete only the unwanted geometry. A good example of this is a CAT scan of a bone, as [...]
