Computer Aided Inspection

Closing the Loop On Digital Manufacturing Workflow, While Moving Toward a Model-Based Definition EnvironmentConmputer Aided Inspection (CAI) software helps CAD, GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing datums), and measuring devices work together to ensure design intent, and eliminate the need for 2D inspection drawings, while closing the loop on digital workflow. These are all important considerations when moving towards a ModelBased Definition (MBD) environment. CAD-Based inspection is a good first step toward achieving a complete MBD environment. The central concept of MBD is that a 3D CAD model provides all product information needed for all a...

First Article Inspection Under 10 Minutes

Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) have been around for a long time. But the goal of transforming to full model-based definition (MBD) has been elusive. One of the key disciplines where it has not been incorporated is in Quality Control. While organizations have partially employed model-based methods for CMM (coordinate measuring machine) inspection, most QA departments have continued to rely on drawings, manual techniques, and other non-digital means to complete the process. But now, moving the enterprise towards a fully modelbased process not only yields technical and process control benefits, but it can also greatly redu...
