Sandvik Prime Turning Install

By | 2018-01-03T08:35:33+00:00 December 11th, 2017|Categories: Mastercam, Tech Tips|0 Comments

Let’s go over how to download and install the new Sandvik Prime Turning module for Mastercam Lathe and Millturn. This innovative new system integrates both specialized cutting tools and toolpath engineering to produce phenomenal efficiency gains in material removal rates. The first thing you need to do is log into the Mastercam website and then go to the 2018 Downloads landing page. From here, select the Prime Turning Installation zip file. Once the download is complete, extract the contents and then right-click and select Run as Administrator. Click through all the prompts and in a few moments the installation is complete. Next, start up Mastercam and add the Prime Turning icon on the Lathe ribbon as shown below. Prime Turning uses a specific toolpath operation and a dedicated tool library, both designed to work together to take maximum advantage of this technology. Finally, create a toolpath and select a tool. Since this technology is very specialized we strongly advise that you consult all the data resources available from both Sandvik and Mastercam. As you can see, Mastercam continues to push forward on the cutting edge of CNC technology, helping you maintain the competitive advantage. Please be sure to sign up [...]

Reverse Engineering a BMW Speaker

By | 2017-12-19T09:21:32+00:00 December 6th, 2017|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, 3D Scanning|0 Comments

Reverse Engineering has many purposes, one of them being to recreate parts or components that are no longer manufactured. With straight-forward mechanical components, this can be accomplished with a variety of measuring instruments. This task can quickly become more complex though, if the part takes on more of a freeform or ergonomic shape. To serve as an example, the president of our company recently had one of his speaker covers broken. Despite the fact that this is something that can be purchased, we decided to reverse engineer it with all the available tools here at Cimquest. The first step was to scan the part and capture as much as the geometry as possible. This was done with the Creaform HandyScan 700 scanner, which has a resolution of .2 millimeters. Next, we imported the scan into Geomagic Design X. This software allows us to interrogate our scan, and trace the outline of each feature that we need in order to recreate our CAD file. When we’re done, we end up with a fully-featured, editable CAD file that can be exported into a variety of CAD packages. In CAD, you are able leverage these fully editable features to make modifications and optimize [...]

HP 3D Printing Webinar

By | 2017-12-29T08:39:30+00:00 December 4th, 2017|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

HP is offering an informational 3D printing webinar tomorrow afternoon - The Advantages of Designing for MJF Instead of Injection Molding. During this webinar, they will discuss how designing for MJF can optimize costs, free the engineer of constraints imposed by injection molding, and accelerate the development process through delivering production quality parts at the prototype phase and enabling rapid iteration. Attendees will understand how keeping in mind designing for MJF while taking advantage of the freedom of design that 3D printing affords can dramatically affect production costs. This event is tomorrow afternoon so don't delay in registering. Details below. Date December 5th2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Speaker John Briden Senior R&D Manager, HP John Briden is a Stanford Mechanical Engineering graduate who has spent a career developing products at leading consumer electronics companies like Apple and HP Inc. He recently joined HP’s Multi-Jet-Fusion 3D printing group to help usher in the next industrial revolution with 3D printing for production. Register for this event by clicking the button below.

3D Printing Conceptual Models with Formlabs

By | 2017-12-29T08:41:52+00:00 December 1st, 2017|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

3D printing conceptual models is a great way to save time and money early on in the development stage. Engineers can use printers as a sketch pad to build and test out various iterations, and determine necessary adjustments to improve the design. Functional parts take prototyping to the next level, allowing engineers to test models for form and fit and to see how they perform in an assembly. Depending on the application, it is sometimes necessary to combine multiple parts using screws or some other form of fastening. Formlabs has collected various design options for screw threads that can be used with their Tough engineering resin. In the white paper download below, you can learn about all of the options, see the pros and cons of each method, and determine the best fit for your application. Just click the blue bottom below for the PDF download. Download Whitepaper

Behind the Design of the World’s Largest Lens

By | 2017-12-12T09:59:19+00:00 November 29th, 2017|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Reprint from www.formlabs.com  Today, the world’s largest lens is located in a lighthouse on Oahu, Hawaii. The Fresnel lens at Makapu’u Point, 12 feet tall, 8 feet wide, and painstakingly crafted out of glass, has held the title since 1893. This coming Valentine’s Day, the title will transition to a new lens: a 10-by-12-foot Fresnel lens made of interlocking 3D printed bricks. The installation, Window to the Heart, is a collaboration between Formlabs head of design Marcelo Coelho and design studio Aranda\Lasch, and is the winner of the 2018 Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition. Previous winners include The Office for Creative Research, Collective-LOK, Stereotank, Young Projects, and Situ Studio. Window to the Heart is designed and 3D printed specifically to distort and capture the image of Times Square, optically bending light—and attention—to a heart-shaped window at its center. Visitors can look through the window or photograph themselves within it, completing the loop between the lens of the eye and the lens of the camera. A Lens that Reflects Culture “Marcelo and I walked around Times Square and noticed that everyone has their camera out, photographing themselves in the light of the media around them. In this sense, Times Square [...]
