Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division announced the first winners from its Sixth Sense initiative—"an innovation ecosystem bringing scaling startups and world-class companies together,” as described by company officials. Recognized as the two winning startups: RIIICO and SmartParts, selected from a pool of seven competitors.
RIIICO designed a drag-and-drop virtual factory floor, an
artificial-intelligence product that reportedly creates a true-to-life
simulation of a plant with a single 3D scan. SmartParts created an
embedded digital barcode for 3D printing, which when scanned reveals the
material and part specifications and history.

Inc., a global online marketplace connecting enterprise buyers with
suppliers of manufacturing services, has unveiled new digital sourcing
tools on Thomasnet.com for enterprise buyers, and a new cloud-based
manufacturing execution system (MES) for suppliers, which will be open
to third-party developers to build integrated applications.
Also introduced: Workcenter, a centralized project-management and
payment solution that gives suppliers a one-stop view into all of their
Xometry and non-Xometry work.

Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that the latest release of Siemens’ NX software for product engineering reportedly enables greater electronic co-design, collaboration, intelligence capture and reuse capability.
With aesthetic quality now just as important as functionality,
efficiency and performance, this latest NX release offers new tools to
help designers develop forms, including updates to curve creation and
editing with parametric features, and NX Algorithmic Modeling updates
that better support convergent modeling workflows.

3D printing builds to near net or finished dimensions, vacuum heat
treating is an absolute necessity. Vacuum levels that approach 1 X 10-6
Torr produce clean and oxide free surface conditions that are
metallurgically stable. Critical temperature control is also a must to
avoid cracking and producing a strong and ductile part.
