Emergence of STEP AP 242

In a past blog, The Impact of Model-Based Definition (MBD) on 3D Modeling and Manufacturing, we discussed the growing role of MBD. To recap: although 3D modeling has been the standard in design for decades, many manufacturers still rely heavily on 2D drawings when communicating with suppliers. MBD enables the next step in CAD evolution where the 3D model becomes the means of communicating manufacturing data and specifications (product and manufacturing information or PMI).

3D Modeling at Augmented World Expo 2016

Augmented World Expo 2016

Part of the sales and marketing team’s mission here at Spatial is to attend trade shows worldwide, not only to meet other industry professionals, but also to keep up on the latest trends within the various industries we serve. One of the more unusual shows we attend each year is the Augmented World Expo (AWE), a conference and expo on augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and wearable technology.

Rapid 2016 – 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing Event

On May 15-19, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers held their annual RAPID event — the longest-running, additive manufacturing conference in North America. I attended the show last year, so I was surprised at how much the focus of the show had changed.

When 3D Software Development Toolkits Make Sense

Make or buy is an age old question for anyone building products, whether hardware or software. For example, for a manufacturer, does it make sense to buy a pre-built assembly or design and build their own? The same question arises for software developers: take advantage of existing SDKs to solve a particular problem or write custom code. And unfortunately, the answer always is “it depends.”
