Geomagic Training - Day One

Today marked the beginning of the last session of rapid prototyping training. Tom Kinnare from East Coast Metrology came in to train the Vehicle Engineering Team on the Geomagic software package.

This software is a powerful tool that reads the point cloud data generated by the ZScanner and allows the user to convert the info into a surface or solid model. After the data has been converted, a file can be imported into SolidWorks. We will use these scans to build the LM prototype in the virtual SolidWorks before constructing the physical prototype.

Using this method allows us to quickly and accurately determine the fitment of existing off the shelf parts and design new parts around them, limiting (hopefully E-liminating) any costly errors due to improper fitment of parts whether off the shelf or custom LM designs.

Once day two of our training is complete, I'll be sure to share more thoughts and images of the training and the output of the Geomagic software.

The writing process is divided into various stages, each of which necessitates your undivided attention and diligence. And, of course, this is a time-limited process. Your professor might want you to turn in your work in two weeks. It means you must set your priorities and devote your attention to one task rather than others. However, it does not ensure a faultless result. That's why so many of your classmates choose the easier option of hiring a paper help service.
