DMSC Special Event at IMTS

28 August 2014

Booth E-5200 Pavilion: Quality Assurance

Burleson, Texas, USA – August 27, 2014 – The Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium, Inc. (DMSC) will hold two special events daily during the IMTS  show September 8-13, 2014 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.  A multi-vendor demonstration of the new Quality Information Framework (QIF) interoperability standard for digital metrology will be held Tuesday-Friday at the DMSC booth E-5200 at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

Join DMSC President Curtis Brown of Honeywell FM&T, Lockheed Martin, NIST, John Deere, Capvidia, Metrosage, Origin International, IPI Solutions, Mitutoyo America Corporation, Innovalia Metrology, MTConnect Institute, InfinityQS, Kotem Ltd, Renishaw, and PAS Technology, as they demonstrate various use cases of QIF version 2.0 as being announced in the September 5th, 2014 ANSI Standards Action publication.

 

Capvidia to Participate in QIF™ V2.0 Draft Standard Demonstration at IMTS 2014

Booth E-5200 Pavilion: Quality Assurance

Leuven, Belgium – August 25, 2014 – Capvidia announces that it will participate in the QIF V2.0 Draft Standard demonstration as part of the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium, Inc. (DMSC) during the IMTS show September 8-13, 2014 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.  As part of the DMSC demo, Capvidia will convert 3D MBD models from native CAD systems directly into QIF format. The QIF model generated by Capvidia will then be used by DMSC metrology vendors to show complete interoperability while maintaining complete and accurate product definition with various conformance levels of semantic PMI (e.g., GD&T). The demonstrations will be held Tuesday-Friday at the DMSC booth at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at Booth E-5200 at IMTS.

On December 19th, 2013, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved QIF V1.0 as an American National Standard. This new standard covers the digital interoperability needs for a wide variety of use cases including feature-based dimensional metrology, quality measurement planning (QIF Plans), first article inspection (QIF Results), and discrete quality measurement. QIF models include quality characteristics and measurement features as defined in the ASME Y14.5 specification and the Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS).

 

ANSI Approves New QIF Standard

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Approves New Quality Information Framework (QIF) Standard

ANSINew QIF™ V1.0 Standard:  A Significant Breakthrough for the Metrology Industry

Burleson, Texas, USA December 23, 2013 — The (DMSC) Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium announced today the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved QIF v1.0 (Quality Information Framework, version 1.0) as an ANSI standard.  This new standard covers the digital interoperability needs for a wide variety of use cases including feature-based dimensional metrology, quality measurement planning, first article inspection, and discrete quality measurement.

ANSI approval of QIF v1.0 indicates that QIF has attained a consensus approval from a large number of subject matter experts in the digital metrology industry. (See “About DMSC” below.) The QIF standard was designed to meet the highest industry requirements and to satisfy technological gaps that have traditionally cost industry hundreds of millions of dollars annually. The DMSC has met, and continues to meet the need for urgently required national standards in quality measurement in a timely fashion. ANSI’s accredited Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) operate in accordance with national and often international guidelines, and have been verified by government and peer review assessments.  The ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR) approved the standard on December 19, 2013.

 

CAPVIDIA announces cooperation with CADENAS

03 July 2014

CAPVIDIA announces cooperation with CADENASLEUVEN, June 26, 2014, CAPVIDIA, a world leader in 3D engineering software, announces a newly established cooperation with CADENAS GmbH, a world market leader for standard parts software solutions.

The CADENAS flagship software product PARTsolutions for parts management will be extended by Capvidia`s “Feature Recognition”, “3D CAD Data Exchange, Repair and Healing”, as well as “Reverse Engineering” capabilities.

PARTsolutions is the answer for engineering and purchase to easily find components and standard parts. The software helps to reduce and control part inventories and moreover cut down production costs considerably during the design phase, allowing coming to a “make or buy” decision quickly and efficiently.

The CAPVIDIA functionality will be integrated in the CADENAS PARTsolutions suite to provide a broad access to PMI (Product Manufacturing Information) and 3D model feature definition, by analyzing the 3D model (BREP representation) and automatically identifying entities such as: cylinders, cones, planes, cylindrical segments, elongated cylinders, arcs, lines, opposite planes, etc. (over 20 different features are automatically recognized) and linked with the information from the PMI defining feature characteristics such as: circularity, concentricity, angularity, parallelism, flatness, perpendicularity, etc. The feature and characteristic information is easily accessible over open XML based QIF/ CAPXML file format.

Furthermore the 3D CAD Data Exchange capabilities of CADENAS` PARTsolutions software will be extended by the powerful repair and healing algorithms from CAPVIDIA.

 

Aerodynamics of complex moving 3D objects

12 December 2013

 

Capvidia is proud to announce a new type of CFD simulations successfully analyzing aerodynamics of complex moving 3D objects as human beings. This new FlowVision capability has a direct implementation in different sport disciplines where aerodynamics or hydrodynamics have influence on the potential results. Different sport disciplines are of particular interest because computer simulation can help to develop new training methods based on the athletes’ individual performance and individual characteristics of movements.
