Colour scanning - in this case a canister of ‘squirty cream’ - is now available direct into SolidWorks

Geomagics’ scan-to-SolidWorks powers have been increased as 3D Systems announces new releases for Geomagic for SolidWorks 2019, as well as its 3DXpert software for SolidWorks 14.

A new user interface for Geomagic is only the beginning, with new tools and enhancements aiming to streamline the workflow even further for the modelling process, through new commands for Probe Points, Extract Reference Point and Edit Scan to manipulate multiple scan objects simultaneously.

Colour data capture of scanned objects can now be imported into SolidWorks, providing greater visual clarity for engineers when compared to working with black-and-white images - especially when used for applications like face and body scans as well as long-range scanning for construction and landscape applications.

The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has announced its lineup of keynote speakers for its 2019 conference, with NASCAR driver and founder of Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM), Brad Keselowski, taking the pole slot.

Taking place in Chicago, USA, on 31 March – 4 April, Keselowski will talk about how as a pro driver across two racing series he has learned the important role manufacturing plays across multiple industries, including motorsports and automotive.

He will be joined by fellow keynote, BAFTA award wining and Oscar nominated animation studio Laika, as its director of rapid prototyping Brian McLean treats attendees to a visual journey that shows how 3D printing has helped redefine stop-motion animation.

Carbon has officially unveiled its L1 3D printer, designed specifically for immediate, high-volume production with 10-times the build area of the its first production 3D printer the M1.

This is the same type of 3D printer that has been churning out thousands of Adidas Futurecraft midsoles, and US sports brand Riddell have joined them, using Carbon technology to produce custom American Football helmet liners.

Riddell’s SpeedFlex Precision Diamond is the first piece of its sports equipment to feature a digitally manufactured helmet liner, printed in a flexible custom elastomer resin, with an entire helmet liner’s 7 parts fitting on one build platform.

In the latest release of Simcenter 3D (2019.1), Siemens PLM Software introduces new, cutting-edge simulation capabilities, along with stronger connections to the broader Simcenter portfolio (That portfolio includes the likes of Femap, Madymo, STAR-CCM+, Flotherm as well as all of the tools from the LMS acquisition for physical testing).

For those that are additive curious, it’s also worth noting that the solution set has also been updated to include simulation of the additive manufacturing process, as well as more traditional engineering simulation tools to cover transmission simulation, aero-structure margin of safety analysis and fluid-structure interaction.
