ZVerse Touts MRO 3D Automation Via 2D Plans

May 5, 2021

Digital 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.

"ZVerse 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.
