Artec Studio 14 Features Enhanced Functionality for Quality Inspection
Artec Studio 14 performs quality inspection with features such as expanded CAD/CAM functionality and Artec Micro integration. With the software, users of Artec’s Ray 3D scanner can perform geometry-only global registration without setting up spheres or 2D targets. Additionally, users can perform hybrid registration using geometry and 2D targets.
When exporting files to SolidWorks or other CAD/CAM applications, users can export unlimited open and closed contours as polylines in CSV or DXF files. This allows for the reverse engineering of simple shapes without the need for intermediary software, the company says.
This version of the software adds PBR-based automatic glare removal. Users can adjust the level of glare removal and can use the dynamic auto-brightness feature to automatically optimize levels during scan previews. The bridge feature enables users to fix holes in scans because it recreates missing geometric data.
The autopilot feature enables users to align their model automatically. The one-click auto-positioning feature enables users to create default positions for scans, and when the file is open in Artec Studio or other software, the scan wil appear in the chosen position.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
Just because dial indicators have been around since the early 1900s, don't expect them to fade away with the last century. This tool's long-term popularity is well earned.
