New Collaborative Project Will Give Manufacturing Some New Digital Threads

Reference NIST Tech Beat for January 7, 2015 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) researchers and their industrial partners aim to add a new dimension to manufacturing capabilities. In a new project, they will demonstrate the feasibility—and benchmark the advantages—of using standardized, three-dimensional (3D) models for electronically exchanging and processing product and manufacturing information all the way from design through inspection of the final part, a tightly integrated, seamless string of activities that manufacturers are calling a "digital thread". Compared with the prevailing practice of converting two-dimensional (2D) computer...
