The addition of the metrology grade CT scanners creates a dynamic new capability. Industrial CT scanning engineering overcomes line of sight restrictions and data collection issues experienced with touch probe, laser, vision and structured light based systems. 3DES VP of Operations, Rob Glassburn, P.E., explains, "This technology allows us to surface map and inspect internal passages of customer parts that require a non-destructive evaluation of their critical components. Markets from aerospace, medical, automotive and historical preservation can benefit from this advanced CT technology by utilizing 3DES services without the burden of expensive capital investments and maintaining engineers proficient in their use. 3DES will break down the paradigm that precision industrial scanning is expensive and time consuming. Our services will provide ISO 17025 quality combined with excellent turn around for our services utilizing 24/7 customer support. Valued at over $2 million, this 3DES project creates a state-of-the-art industrial CT scanning Center of Excellence. This strategic partnership with Nikon Metrology uniquely qualifies 3DES as the leading engineering and metrology lab in the United States, with its advanced suite of leading edge CT scanning hardware, advanced reconstruction and analysis software and team of degreed engineers professionally trained in all aspects of the use and proficient application of 3D voxel model data acquisition and point cloud engineering. Nikon Metrology VP of Strategic Marketing, Jim Clark explains, Industrial X-ray/CT has long been a tool used in the Quality and Failure Analysis lab, but advances in speed, techniques and standards mean that it is now a tool that can replace several pieces of existing measurement and metrology equipment and provide superior results both quicker and without the need to cut or destroy the part. "Nikon Metrology is excited to have partnered with 3D Engineering Solutions, notes Clark. 3DES is geographically well positioned in the Midwest to support the growing demand for advanced CT scanning services.

One prime example comes from a new headphone company called Normal, which today unveiled an innovative 3D-printing process that allows users to create custom in-ear headphones from the couch. CEO and founder, Nikki Kaufman, created Normal to remedy a persistent problem with in-ear headphones: a bad fit. As any owner of in-ears can attest, the difference between a good fit and a poor one can have anenormousaffect on sound quality. Unfortunately, human ears are oddly shaped, and its very difficult to create a standardized size that will work equally for all users. Typically, manufacturers tackle the anatomical issue withmultiple design styles, or a variety of little silicone and foam tips, attempting to shoehorn plugs into your canal to create a tight seal. But the most effective solution, custom-designed earpieces, has only been in reach of those with the time and means to seek out an audio professional for custom molds, and then pay a heap of cash for tailored manufacturing. Normal aims to change all of that. For $200 about what youll pay for standardin-ear headphones of the premium variety Normal will send you a pair of earphones in as little as 48 hours that are carefully crafted for those unique little holes in your head. The earphones come in a variety of colors with an inline remote and mic piece, and a custom laser-engraved carrying case.
