New 3D Scanning Capabilities at Stratosmith

InventBirdStratosmith Technologies has just received our new 3D scanner!  Our engineers are busy learning its ins and outs while integrating it into our systems.  Out of the box, we can measure at a .050″ resolution, with improvements coming as we learn.  The system is flexible, allowing us to measure items small enough to hold in your hand and items the size of boats and aircraft.  We will be able to connect to a laptop and walk around to collect point cloud data, or scan an object sitting on a table, then export that data to a solid CAD model, modify the geometry (if required), send it to the Stratosmith Technologies HighRPM for rapid prototyping, or to one of our expert manufacturing partners for machining. This is an exceedingly useful technology for customers with legacy hardware, or for parts or components where original design and manufacturing documentation is not available.

Keep checking back!  We’ll post more data in the near future as we integrate the 3D scanner into our systems.

Stratosmith Technologies to attend DARPA Robotics Challenge 2013

Robot wavingWe will be attending the 2013 DARPA Robotics Challenge in Homestead, FL on December 20, 2013. Robots (and their humans) from around the world will be competing for a $2 Million prize. The Challenge: demonstrate the dexterity, ruggedness, mobility, and intelligence of partially autonomous robots in disaster recovery and situations too hazardous for humans to successfully operate.

Find out more about the challenge here: http://www.theroboticschallenge.org/

Admission is free and open to the public. Come out for a day and see some of the world’s most innovative robots compete in person. We hope to see you there!

First Parts Built on HighRPM!

FirstParts

We have built our first parts with the Stratosmith Technologies HighRPMTM! The HighRPMTM is a Rapid Prototyping Machine built in-house here at Stratosmith Technologies. The four corner bracket parts, seen above, were built with black ABS.  The HighRPMTM has a build volume of 708 cubic inches, and can build parts as large as 8.5 x 11.25 x 7.25 inches in a single run. From CAD model to finished parts, it took less than 3 hours to bring these parts to life. Now that’s Accelerated Manufacturing!

RECAP: TechXPO 2013

Thank you to all of the exhibitors and vendors for showcasing your products and services at TechXPO 2013. Our engineers enjoyed their discussions with the other forward-thinking technology companies in attendance. From robots roaming the exhibition hall to new software tools and composite materials, our engineers will be thinking creatively and adding new capabilities to their design toolkits! We made some great contacts, and we hope to meet you at the next event we attend!
