RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., September 15, 2005 Geomagic announces a new program that helps customers rapidly implement and gain value from digital shape sampling and processing (DSSP). DSSP bridges the physical and digital worlds, delivering substantial productivity gains in inspection, re-engineering and other manufacturing workflow processes.
The Geomagic Services program emerged from an increased demand for the company's consulting work. DSSP has been successfully implemented by Geomagic in applications such as customized surface modeling for finite-element analysis (FEA) at Kimberly-Clark; computer-aided inspection and digital reconstruction for NASA's Discovery shuttle mission; and engineering optimization for a major automotive manufacturer that reduced NURBS surfacing time for complex objects such as engine and transmission housings by as much as 80 percent.
