3D Modeler Brings AR To The Shop Floor

Spatial Corp. has collaborated with EXTEND3D on the release of the EXTEND3D Werklicht 3D software, which the companies believe bridges 3D CAD models to the shop floor. All EXTEND3D Werklicht laser- and video-projection systems can be powered with one software that covers all relevant 3D data input formats.


Traditionally, moving from a 3D CAD model to the manufacturing floor required producing sets of 2D drawings, followed by the production of costly manufacturing templates and jigs combined with measurements to guide workers. Powered by Spatial’s CGM Core Modeler, the Werklicht Pro’s lasers and integrated sensors can dynamically project manufacturing data and work instructions on a workpiece, for example, displaying bolt hole, bracket, and stud welding locations.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


Werklicht also benefits the areas of quality assurance and first-part inspection by eliminating complex measurement system set up and calibration. As the Werklicht platform supports a variety of markerless or marker-based referencing strategies, the system is easy and fast to deploy and can even be installed inline in manufacturing lines or cells.
