3D Solutions Spotlight: A 3D Scanner named Leo? 3D Scanning has never been easier with your choices from Artec 3D and Hawk Ridge

We will be introducing the first 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing, the Artec Leo, during this complimentary 3D Solutions Spotlight. Learn how the Leo provides the most intuitive workflow, making 3D scanning as easy as taking a video. As you scan your object, see the 3D replica being built in real time on the Leo’s touch panel screen. Rotate the 3D model, check if you have captured all areas, and fill in any parts you may have missed. Join our technical expert, Luke Davis, to learn about recent developments in Artec 3D scanners.

Much of engineering design involves metal, and both sheet metal and weldment designs require specialized workflows in SOLIDWORKS to generate the necessary outputs needed for manufacturing. Learn tips and tricks about how to create workflows for both sheet metal and weldments from Hawk Ridge Systems Training Engineer, David Brown. In sheet metal, we'll talk about designing using the flange method and producing an accurate flat pattern, and in weldments we'll use 3d sketch principles, a technique that can be applied to vehicle frames, construction cranes and more. This webinar is a free preview of Hawk Ridge Systems’ exclusive On-Demand training content, where you can learn more about sheet metal, weldments, and a whole host of other functional areas in SOLIDWORKS.
