Data Management & Digital Connectivity
The Roadmap to Digital Transformation of 3D Measurement
While 3D measurement data produced by 3D scanning technologies is used today in all phases of product development and manufacturing, including in the early prototyping stages, its integration into enterprise processes remains chaotic and the sharing of the resulting huge files is still done with USB sticks. Of all manufacturing processes, measuring parts in 3D and sharing dimensional 3D inspection results provides a compelling case for digital transformation. But companies must proceed carefully to avoid huge overhauls that result in time and cost overruns and disturbances of their daily operations.
Today, thanks to a gradual, modular approach, companies are successfully implementing digital tools and processes that empower their manufacturing teams to do so much more with their 3D measurement data. And with significant benefits at every phase. Here are the common elements of these successes.
