A First in Industrial CT Scanning Services

We have been talking about our new industrial CT scanning services over the last few months, and now have great news to share. 3D Engineering Solutions is the first company in the world to receive an ISO 17025 certification for industrial CT scanning services. This means that internal and external elements of an assembly can be scanned and analyzed with intense precision, like […]

Partnership with Nikon Metrology Brings Industrial CT Scanning to 3D Engineering Solutions

We have been fortunate enough to form a partnership with Nikon Metrology and use their latest CT scanning technology.  These scanning machines use X-rays to penetrate an entire assembly at one time, eliminating the need line of sight restrictions you would have with laser, probe, vision or structured light scanning systems.  Its non-destructive testing capabilities […]

Long Range Laser Scanning & Digital Mapping Helps Move Church More than 1,000 Miles

At 3D Engineering, we are ecstatic about our latest long range laser scanning and digital mapping project.  As part of our BIM services, we employed long range laser scanning and digital mapping to capture exact position and orientation of each stone of an historical church building being relocated more than 1,000 miles from Middletown, Ohio […]

Color Mapping Technology for First Article Inspection

As part of our ISO 17025 quality inspection services at 3D Engineering Solutions, we now provide color mapping technology for first article inspection of cast parts, a service many other engineering firms still do not offer.  Color mapping provides qualitative illustrations that show the difference between a scanned object and its nominal design.  We provide […]

Leading Edge Scanning Technology Helps Improve Part Verification & Accuracy

We recently finished a project here at 3D Engineering that used scanning technology to verify the accuracy of plastic injection molded refrigerator parts.  In one sense, this is nothing unusual; we frequently using scanning to verify part accuracy.  Most companies, however, still use a fixed based Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) to conduct part verification.  CMM […]

Popular Airsoft Guns Reverse Engineered, Helping Bring Back Offshore Manufacturing and Secure 300 U.S. Jobs

Recently, my company had the opportunity to reverse engineer parts for popular Airsoft guns once manufactured abroad.  When this particular gun maker learned that its offshore manufacturer was using its proprietary tooling to “back door sell” guns made with the equipment, it closed down operations and moved manufacturing back to the United States, which helped secure 300 domestic jobs.  […]
