Exact Metrology Educates Middle School Students
On March 28, 2019, Exact Metrology was among several companies who came to Latonia Elementary Career Day.
This event was meant to introduce students to a variety of careers in health, law, manufacturing, engineering, technology and other fields. Fifth grade students spent three weeks re-searching different careers that interested them. They learned information concerning future salary, education and job skills. Then, students had the opportunity to speak with professionals in their chosen fields and ask questions.
Chris Lafferty, a specialist in Artec 3D’s, professional-grade handheld 3D scanners and software, attended on behalf of Exact Metrology. Together with Jason Kleinhenz, marketing manager at Exact Metrology, they met with students to teach them about metrology using the Artec Leo and Geomagic Design X.
Artec Leo is the first 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing with an integrated touch panel viewer. This frees users from being tied to a computer for data capture. Users can scan the object and see the 3D replica being built in real time on the screen. The 3D model can be rotated to check that all areas have been captured. The final 3D model can be directly exported to Geomagic Design X.
Geomagic Design X is the industry’s most comprehensive reverse engineering software-combining history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing and enables users to create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with existing CAD software. Geomagic Design X provides an easy way to integrate CAD models from a 3D scanner into an existing engineering design workflow. This software permits the reuse of designs without manually updating old drawings or re-measure/rebuild a model in CAD.
Jason Kleinhenz commented, “Exact Metrology was happy to participate in this career event because we are committed to giving back by partnering with schools for educational purposes and career enhancements.”
