Manufacturing and Fabrication Solutions

Streamline Manufacturing Processes with 3D Capabilities

Spatial software development toolkits can help optimize manufacturing and fabrication solutions in diverse applications such as waterjet and laser cutting, sheet metal fabrication, and CNC milling machines. A growing number of solution providers rely on 3D software development toolkits from Spatial to build fully integrated solutions.

Machine tool vendors must consistently produce innovative solutions to tough problems which also improve machining productivity and maintain high levels of product quality. Incorporating Spatial components for 3D modeling, CAD translation and visualization allows manufacturing hardware providers to deliver highly competitive, integrated solutions. Going beyond more general 3rd party products, custom solutions provide greater flexibility, more control over product direction, and focus on key differentiators including ease of use, streamlining operations and cost savings.

Spatial components can provide key functionality throughout the manufacturing process. Design changes, nesting, and comparisons between “as designed” and “as machined” parts are possible with 3D modeling solutions from Spatial. By using the integrated set of robust, proven APIs to deliver core 3D capabilities, machine tool vendors can now focus on solving complex manufacturing problems.

Case Study - Renishaw

Renishaw Success Story

While .STL files have historically been the standard used by the industry, it is well known that this format can causes issues, typically with broken STLs that need healing, or with low triangle density impacting print quality. A far better approach is to work on the original native geometry, preserving the original design intent of the model. By integrating Spatial SDKs into QuantAM 2017, Renisahw will continue to enable users to build part right the first time.

The Benefits of Using SDK Technology

The Benefits of Using SDK Technologies

Software development toolkits (SDKs) are now used by almost every CAD/CAM vendor in one form or another. Popular applications included 3D geometric modeling, data translation,  visualization, toolpath generation and simulation.

Why are SDKs so popular in the CAD/CAM industry? This white paper takes a look at SDK technology, the benefits and return on investment.
