Phase3D has developed a sophisticated real-time quality control system for powder-based 3D printers they call “Fringe”.
A new approach to inspection could make metal 3D printing more financially and environmentally friendly.
Materialise Process Control, released in collaboration with Phase3D and Sigma Additive Solutions, enables quality control using data gathered during the 3D printing process, and the Build Processor Software Development Kit (BP SDK) connects 3D printers with software for data preparation.
Artec 3D released the latest version of their scanning software, Artec Studio 17.
Fictiv announced a very interesting addition to their manufacturing service: quality inspections.
Measurement is often seen as non-value-added work. However, if we properly account for the expected costs involved in passing defects on to customers, then the increased value of the product can be clearly shown.
