ZVerse Touts MRO 3D Automation Via 2D Plans
May 5, 2021
manufacturing solutions company ZVerse launched a landmark automation-assisted
conversion that creates 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) assets from 2D technical
drawing files. A lack of 3D digital files is one of the largest obstacles to
digital manufacturing and on-demand Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) part
production at scale.
For supply chain, advanced manufacturing, sustainability, and field service
teams at OEM and industrial organizations seeking to increase deployed and fleet
equipment uptime, this breakthrough assesses original 2D engineering files to
generate a rapid 2D to 3D conversion project quote, then creates 3D
manufacturing assets that can be stored in a digital library. Field and repair
technicians can then quickly access files to request and manufacture a part from
anywhere with a secure network connection.
ZVerse's breakthrough 2D to 3D automation enables manufacturing engineers and
industrial designers to speed the legacy file conversion process for MRO parts,
resulting in project time and cost savings while delivering reliable geometric
accuracy. ZVerse's solution maximizes customer operations resources by
eliminating the foundational step of re-drawing part geometries at current
manufacturing software standards, resulting in an average 35-50% reduction in
comparative project time.
has been doing this work for years, converting 2D files to 3D through our
on-demand design services. We know the areas where you can drive automation and
drive the biggest impact in workflow," said ZVerse President David Craig. "We
have also learned that the greatest time spent in the conversion process can be
automated and we now have automated those steps. We are committed to driving
even more types of automation in, and around, this critical business need."
As the foundation of the company's solutions for digital manufacturing, this
service enables ZVerse customers to accelerate digital manufacturing and supply
chain initiatives for reduced equipment downtime, lower inventory carrying,
material, and production costs, and to directly address Right to Repair
compliance, sustainability, and circular economy goals.
