Parent company 3D Systems has continued its own industrial revolution with updates to two of its tools from the manufacturing-end of the spectrum - GibbsCAM 12 and Geomagic Control X 2018.

Taking advantage of an updated platform architecture, Geomagic Control X 2018 enables customers to more efficiently create inspection models as well as scan, evaluate, and communicate inspection results with newly customisable and intuitive reports.

Reduced calculation time by up to 50 per cent should give users faster analysis during their common inspection workflows, while Geomagic Control X 2018 enables users to import, align, and compare faster than before.

Version 2017 of Kisters 3DViewStation Desktop has added ‘advanced’ automatic 2D drawing generation to tackle the legal hurdles still faced by many companies.

According to Kisters, 3DViewStation helps to automatically derive 2D drawings from 3D CAD models by rendering them, performing a ‘true hidden line removal’, a vectorsation and a line reduction before outputting to DXF or SVG.

The 3D CAD viewer and universal viewer for engineers and designers ships with current and mature importers for a broad range of 3D and 2D formats including Catia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor, JT, 3D-PDF, STEP, DWG, DXF, DWF, MS Office and many more.

Nano Dimension has finally launched its larger form factor 3D printer for the rapid prototyping of electronics, which is great news for the fight against the the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) bottleneck for prototypes.

The larger DragonFly 2020 Pro replaces the desktop-sized model that many will be familiar with seeing since the company’s launch in 2012, since then the company has raised millions in funding and appointed former 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental to its board of directors during a shake up earlier this year.

The DragonFly 2020 Pro prints high resolution ‘trace and space’ with an inkjet deposition system, allowing it to construct a full range of multilayer PCB features – including interconnections such as buried vias and plated through-holes.
