Hexagon Startup Competition Recognizes SmartParts, RIICO
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.

Vacuum Heat Treating 3D Metal Printed Components
Since 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.
