Recently, 3D Engineering Solutions was asked if we could detect porosity of a 0.2mm in a customer casting. Finding your 0.2mm porosity should not be an issue. We use Perkin-Elmer 16”x16” Panel detectors with a 0.200mm pixel pitch. That means that for each of the thousands of x-rays taken of your casting, the individual pixel […]
About Rob Glassburn
I am a registered Professional Engineer and Vice President of Operations at 3D Engineering Solutions in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’ve spent my whole career in the engineering world and attained certifications in Tolerance Stacks and GD&T, and Six Sigma Green Belt (DFSS and DMAIC). I hold the following degrees: BSME, MSME and MBA
Before joining 3D Engineering Solutions, I worked for Texas Instruments and 3M. Currently at 3D Engineering, a lot of the projects I’m working on involve industrial CT scanning, 3D laser scanning, structured light scanning, reverse engineering, CAD modeling and long range laser scanning.

3D Engineering Solutions’ state of the art, temperature controlled, and ISO17025 accredited metrology lab offers certified digital radiography services. Our metrology lab and 30,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space can accommodate customer’s needs; from single part projects all the way up to production part projects for tens of thousands of parts. We have bar code […]
3D Engineering Solutions has recently acquired a Creaform GO!Scan 3D. This gives us the opportunity to offer yet another option when it comes to data collection for our customers. With this scanner, large parts can be scanned significantly faster. This is helpful in many situations.
There are multiple ways to align scan data to a CAD model. The main three methods used at 3D Engineering Solutions are best-fit, datum reference frame, and feature based.
When to use Spheres with Long Range Scanning At 3D Engineering, we sometimes have projects that involve conducting long range scans of large buildings. Scanning these buildings is more complicated than just placing the scanner in the center of a room and being finished after one scan (unless your building is a single room). You have […]
I am here today to share how 3D Engineering Solutions is a leader in CT scanning engineering. I’ll explain how we are the only company to have a piece of CT equipment to our ISO 17025 scope. This new piece of equipment allows us to perform more accurate scans.
Aligning Multiple Scans of a Single Object Something people may not think about is the processes used to align multiple scans of a single object, as many parts require more than one scan to fully cover the object. Sometimes the part may be too large for the equipment to cover from one spot, or a […]
Traditional FAI & PPAP Traditionally FAI (First Article Inspection) and PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) inspections include a complete look at all the print dimensions. A typical dimension may take 10-minutes to fully program, collect the data and report using traditional methods. Because prints can easily have between 150 to 1,000 dimensions, this becomes a significant […]
When it comes to engineering services, we know there are many options to consider. To better explain how our services compare to the competition, we created a video that answers the question: What differentiates 3D Engineering Solutions from scanning bureaus?
The American Society For Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) is the leading technical society for nondestructive testing professionals. I am honored to have accepted an invitation to present to the Central Ohio section later this month. The topic of the presentation is, “Precise Non-Destructive Inspection of Complex Parts and Assemblies with Inaccessible Internal Cavities“. Date: January 27, […]
