Video: 3D Scanning for Quality Part Inspection and Reporting

In this video, Frank Thomas walks viewers through the steps a Quality Control team would take to inspect a new shiny metal part generated from a 3D Printer.  The process uses a 3D Scanner to inspect the part and make sure it meets tolerance and part requirements. 

Using a Creaform HandySCAN BLACK, Frank fully acquires a 3D Scan of a part using a turntable to assist with the full imaging.  He saves the scan in a .STL format, which is a common format that can be used to import into CAD systems and others.  In this instance, the .STL file was imported into Polyworks Inspector software to generate the full inspection report.

This video was taken during the Live Stream Future of Additive event held in December 2020.  Watch the 3D Scanner demonstration here:

Video: Optimize Reverse Engineering with 3DEXPERIENCE

Drive Innovation Cycles with Reverse Engineering end to end using PLM software with 3D Printing and 3D Scanning tools

Frank Thomas and Florian Bardet presented at COExperience 2020 showcasing how to Optimize Reverse Engineering with 3DEXPERIENCE.  This presentation shows how a team manages a reverse engineering project from end to end using a variety of tools:

  • 3DEXPERIENCE platform will be the software used to govern the project, re-engineer the part, and validate it with simulation. 
    • CATIA
    • SIMULIA
    • ENOVIA
  • Creaform HandySCAN BLACK 3D Scanner will be used to digitize the part at the beginning of the process to enable the team to reverse engineer the part.
  • Markforged Metal X 3D Printer is used at the end to 3D print the re-engineered part.
