Additive manufacturing technologies are also commonly known as "Rapid Prototyping" or "3D Printing" as well as other names. And, although they are still being used by design engineers for concept modeling and prototyping, that's not all. Manufacturing engineers are now employing these technologies for various applications such as jigs, fixtures, check gauges, and even as a bridge-to-tooling and low-volume end-use parts.

This webinar explores how additive manufacturing systems such as 3D printers and 3D production systems are changing the future of product development and manufacturing.

Who should attend:

  • Design Engineers
  • Product Designers
  • Manufacturing Engineers
  • Inventors/Entrepreneurs
  • Technology Educators

FARO Applications Engineer Ryan Dant will explore contact and non-contact measurement technologies, and explain the advantages of each to the design engineer, OEM manufacturer and others. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the advantages and drawbacks for both, and ultimately be able to decide which is best for their unique application.

Attend this webinar and FARO will:

  • Discuss, in-depth, the process of contact measurement including the types of probing methods - hard-probing and touch-trigger methods

  • Explain laser probing as it relates to articulated arm CMMs; covering point cloud spread, volume, and the effects of color and reflectivity on the target item

  • Detail the uses of each type of measurement in different applications, and explain the specific benefits to users

Modern desktop computers have more compute capabilities than ever before.  Most of these systems include both a central processing unit (CPU) and a graphics processing unit (GPU), each consisting of multiple computing cores providing tremendous processing power.  To date, harnessing the total processing power of a desktop workstation, fully utilizing both the CPU and GPU, has proven difficult for software developers.  CPUs and GPUs have few similarities in both design and programming models. OpenCL is the tool that bridges the gap for software developers and enables them to fully tap into the power of both processors with a single software programming interface.

This presentation will examine the details of CPUs and GPUs, explore their differences and similarities, and highlight the computing power they can provide. We will also take a look OpenCL, what it is, what it does, and how this new computing interface will change the way software developers create software and help end users fully realize the compute power contained within today’s modern desktop computers.

This webinar will cover:

• The details of CPUs and GPUs and explore their differences and similarities
• OpenCL, what it is, what it does, and how it will change the way software developers create software
• How OpenCL helps users fully realize the computing power within today's desktop computers
