Dassault Systemes Unveils ENOVIA High-Tech Accelerator

ReverseEngineering.com has announced HIPP (HighRES Integrated Point Processor), a new stand alone proprietary software technology that saves engineers time by providing versatility and control over scanned 3D point clouds. HIPP can handle millions of points and directly processes raw digitized data from CMMs, PCMMs, retro-fitted CNCs, laser trackers, laser scanners and optical scanners. Developed to work with standard file formats, HIPP can import and export DAT, TXT, XYZ, ASCII and HighRES files. HIPP integrates to leading CAD/CAM packages. There are three modules: HIPP SHOP, HIPP PROFESSIONAL, and HIPP ULTIMATE. In addition, HIPP files integrate seamlessly with the HighRES CAD native integrated software, eliminating the risk of moving digitized geometry through the design and manufacturing cycle. Data sets can be imported upstream to ten major CAD systems as organized native entities, completely eliminating data translation issues. HIPP provides the following features:
  • Thinning
  • 3 point alignment
  • Creating custom planes
  • Point ordering and filtering
  • Multiple plane configurations
  • Adjustable probe tolerance maximizing accuracy
Variation Reduction Solutions, Inc. Selects Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA Robotics for F-35 JSF Project
Dassault Systèmes announced that Variation Reduction Solutions, Inc. (VRSI) has selected DELMIA robotics solution for use in the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Guided Robots and Robotic Applications in Confined Spaces project. VRSI has received an AFRL Small Business Innovative Research grant to develop a vision-guided automated solution for drilling inlet ducts in the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) center fuselage, being manufactured by Northrop Grumman Corp. Currently, the air inlet duct is integrated with the fuselage by attaching aluminum frames to the composite duct via mechanical fasteners. Each duct is about nine feet long, but only 20 inches in internal diameter. Despite the ergonomically challenging space constraints, the operation is done manually and requires the drilling and countersinking of 800 holes per duct. Each of the 800 drilling points has a unique safe-radius area and that DELMIA allows VRSI to create multiple collision and near-miss queues to ensure collision free robot trajectories within the confined duct space. It is expected that the automated drilling solution will reduce the frame attachment process flow time by 50 percent. The prototype system, expected to be delivered mid-2008, will rely upon a vision-guided Fanuc Series 2000/125L robot to enter the narrow duct opening. A laser tracking system will then help locate the correct positioning within a very narrow tolerance of each hole in order to perform the robotic drilling operation. A laser inspection process is then performed to evaluate the quality of each hole.

Striker Systems Sheet Metal CAD/CAM Receives Autodesk Inventor 2009 Certification
Striker Systems announced that the latest release of FAB Professional, its sheet metal nesting and CAD/CAM software, has been certified for Autodesk Inventor 2009. FAB Professional integrates with Autodesk Inventor 2009 via Striker’s PARTshare system. PARTshare provides direct access from Autodesk Inventor software to FAB Professional’s sheet metal nesting library. Parts can be added to the nesting library individually, or entire Inventor assemblies can be processed. Routing codes assigned to the Inventor models control which of the assembly parts are to be nested. Material properties and other manufacturing data are also extracted from Autodesk Inventor software to ensure that nest jobs are properly constructed for subsequent punching or cutting operations. FAB Professional’s PARTshare interface for Autodesk Inventor 2009 software provides true, real-time integration between CAD and CAM functions.
