The technical thrust areas this year are:
1.    NIST MBE program overview
2.    MBE in other industries
3.    MBE Tools Update for Implementation
4.    Engineering Modeling Support to Acquisition
5.    An Overview on Institutes for Manufacturing

Metromeet 2016
February 24~26,  Bilbao, Spain

Tomasz Luniewski, CEO and founder of Capvidia, a leading software developer for Model Based Enterprise interoperability, has been invited to be a guest speaker at Metromeet 2016.  As an acknowledged expert on the Quality Information Framework (QIF), Tomasz will provide an overview of this new ANSI standard for dimensional metrology. The industry has been seeking a major productivity breakthrough as promised by CAD but nobody has been able to produce this level of quality efficiency until now. QIF enables the transfer of metrology data in a machine-to-machine manner thereby eliminating human error, lowering costs and increasing quality and efficiency.

Metromeet is an International Conference on Industrial Dimensional Metrology.

Capvidia extends STEP format to support DIN 4003

02 October 2015

Capvidia products now support STEP DIN 4003, which is commonly used by tooling manufacturers for the creation of digital product catalogues. The STEP DIN 4003 Standard enables data interoperability between different applications and it includes tooling specific information describing such details as:

  • Names for entities representing “CUT” and “NOCUT tool edges
  • Colors assign to the entities representing “CUT” and “NOCUT edges and cutting lines
  • Local coordinate systems with names referring to their position
