Delays along the supply chain have the same effect on manufacturing as lane closings on highways. Nowhere is this more apparent than in quality inspection. “Better processes in design, analysis,…
Aerospace is an industry at the bleeding edge of engineering where rapid and accurate prototyping and production at reduced cost are key to success and survival for a business.
3D printing and scanning is enabling the aerospace industry to not only rapidly produce prototypes and simplify reverse engineering to reproduce products no longer being manufactured, it’s going the step further and simplifying manufacturing of parts, faster, better and more cost effective.
Our feature article below illustrates how NASA has employed 3D technologies to keep their assets, and astronauts, safe in-flight. Although the system hasn’t been put to the test it’s able to help identify any damage and aid with repair.

Feature: Space Shuttle Safety at NASA
…One of the biggest areas of improvement is using Geomagic software to detect, assess and repair, if necessary, tile damage caused by foam particles dislodged from the shuttle and other flying debris…
…Geomagic Studio software provides the central technologies for NASA’s implementation. The software is used by major auto, aerospace and consumer product manufacturers worldwide to digitally recreate complex physical objects for mass customization, more accurate analysis and simulation, and digital inventory. NASA uses Geomagic Studio to automatically process 3D data collected from a scanner while the shuttle is in flight.
Imagine if you could increase your productivity by automating the process of scanning parts, analyzing them for accuracy, and creating detailed reports of the findings. Well, Level 3 Inspection has…
It’s not unusual for enthusiasts of vintage aircraft to go down to their local hobby store and buy a 1:72 scale model fighter to glue together. But very few, like…
Imagine a submarine floating through the sky, and you’ll essentially have an airship; a.k.a., a blimp. Strange but true: beyond a physical likeness, the design and mechanical features of a…
Space travel will always be a gamble, but new approaches to safety such as 3D reverse engineering and inspection are tilting the odds overwhelmingly in NASA’s favor. “As taxpayers, you…
Rus Emerick, Global Process Owner for 3D Imaging at Schneider Electric, spends a lot of time thinking about tolerances. Starting with tolerances of individual parts, his brain moves swiftly on…
