Merry Christmas! - December 2015
December 2015 - From our family to yours, we wish you a loving and joyous holiday season - http://www.capture3d.com/email/merry-christmas-2015.html.
We wish you a holiday season filled with love, happiness and prosperity. As the year draws to a close, Capture 3D Inc. continues to experience growth and further industry adoption of our GOM optical non-contact 3D measurement solutions. To address this growth, we have been hiring more engineers across multiple departments, and continuing to innovate our technology and software with customer driven enhancements. We thank you for your continued support, hard work, and friendship. We are very proud of our customers and our team.
In 2015, Capture 3D was awarded the winner of the GE Aviation High Accuracy, High Throughput, Inspection Technologies Challenge. There were a total of 51 entries into this competition. Participants entering the challenge had to demonstrate the ability to automatically inspect the blade portion of an off-the-shelf Victorinox paring knife in 3 minutes or less with accuracy of 10 microns and repeatability of 5 microns. The paring knife was selected as a low-cost proxy for turbine blades. In addition to accuracy and repeatability, participants also had to demonstrate their system would work in a manufacturing environment with dust, vibration and variability in lighting and temperature. Additionally in 2015, we launched our new website – www.capture3d.com.
What's new for 2016:
New location! Capture 3D Innovation Users Conference and Expo will be held August 2-4, 2016 at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan. This special event occurs every 2 years. Customers and guests will have an opportunity to participate in training classes, learn from customer presentations, hear upcoming developments, and participate in breakout sessions, networking events and our 3D expo. Registration opens Monday, January 4th. This is a highly attended event with limited seating and hotel rooms. Customers should please register early. More details can be found at www.c3dinnovate.com.
New V8 software release (SR1) is packed with new features and enhancements – new intuitive interface design, automatic exposure time for 3D scanning, new touch spheres inspection function, creation of custom groups and user-defined checks, extended GD&T, and much more.
There have been over 9,000 worldwide installations of GOM 3D measurement solutions, and over 55,000 downloads of the free GOM Inspect software.
These are just a few items we wanted to share with you. As a token of our appreciation, our space exploration calendars were mailed to everyone. If for some reason you did not receive yours, please email us at and we will send you one.
On the behalf of everyone at Capture 3D, we are excited to continue working together in the New Year.
With warm regards,
