Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Capture 3D

The Capture 3D family wishes you a Merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season filled with happiness, warmth and prosperity. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for your continued support and friendship. It has been an amazing year for the Capture 3D and GOM team as our technology continues to grow exponentially globally. Year after year our solutions are disrupting traditional measurement processes within organizations to optimize product development, quality control, and manufacturing into new heights.

We are very proud of our customers and of our team!

Here are some of the highlights from 2017 –

  • Capture 3D celebrated its 20 year anniversary by hosting an event in our Farmington Hills, Michigan facility with over 120+ guests. The day was filled with technology demonstrations and training courses.
  • Our headquarters expanded and relocated to Santa Ana, California. We welcomed 60+ guests into our new building and offered complimentary training.
  • We hosted 4 GOM Sheet Metal Workshops throughout the United States to share knowledge on how 3D measurement technology is improving metalforming applications.
  • We hosted quarterly classroom training classes at our California and Michigan facilities for 3D scanning with ATOS, Inspection with GOM Software, Airfoil Inspection, Sheet Metal Inspection, and Scripting inside ATOS with Python courses.
  • The Capture 3D family is almost at 60 team members throughout our locations in California, Washington, Michigan, North Carolina, and Connecticut.

Upcoming news for 2018 –

  • We will be expanding and relocating our North Carolina facility in Q1 2018. Classroom training courses will also be offered at this site around the Q2/Q3 timeframe.
  • Our largest event, the Capture 3D Innovation Conference, will be held in Michigan – TBA.
  • Capture 3D will be hosting the GOM Casting Workshop on Tuesday, May 22nd in Dayton, Ohio.

These are just a few items we wanted to share with you. As a token of our appreciation, we have mailed out our space exploration calendars designed in-house. We hope you enjoy it. If for some reason you do not receive yours, please email On the behalf of everyone at Capture 3D, we are excited to continue working together in the New Year.

With warm regards,

Capture 3D GOM Casting Workshop | Dayton, Ohio | May 22, 2018


Capture 3D GOM International Casting Workshop

Our complimentary workshop is a part of an international workshop series with 42 different locations between Asia and North America between January and May 2018. The global GOM network created the event series to share cutting-edge process and metrology knowledge to design engineers, pattern and mold makers, and specialists from research & development, quality assurance, and production.

During the workshop, you will learn how innovative 3D measuring technologies are used in casting and foundry process chains to support and accelerate all stages in sand casting, pressure die casting and investment casting: from tool and model making, molding shop and core making up to first article inspection reports and CNC machining optimization.

Capture 3D will host the workshop in Dayton, Ohio for those in the casting industry to meet face to face. There is no cost to attend and it includes breakfast and lunch along with light refreshments.

Please register early as seating is limited.

Tuesday, May 22, 2018
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Hilton Garden Inn Dayton Beavercreek
3520 Pentagon Park Blvd.
Dayton, Ohio 45431

In addition to the exchange of experiences, the workshop will have guest speakers. Leading industry companies show how integrating optical measuring systems into the process chain helps shorten development times and improve production workflows. The workshops will introduce the latest developments in 3D metrology, measurement and inspection software.

We look forward to your registration. For further information, see the enclosed invitation or visit our workshop page at
