3D design is now a key technology for effective collaboration between manufacturing companies. Since the introduction of lightweight 3D data technology, it is now compatible for use across manufacturing, sales and marketing processes. The successful use of 3D data throughout such processes has become indispensable for the competitive strength of companies in the manufacturing industry. With 3D visualization, you can vastly improve your wireframes with polygonal-based rendering, ray tracing, radiosity, and other details. You can offer the viewer a full-fidelity view of the design and, as a result, best equip design teams to identify and address potential problems.
Riven is one such firm that is accelerating digital manufacturing with 3D Reality. The company is building the 3D data bridge between people, manufacturing tools and the physical products they produce to make better decisions faster and eliminate waste. Riven speeds up new product introduction, improves production processes and enables automation by reimagining communication and dramatically simplifying 3D data acquisition, analysis and use.
Its background in design and manufacturing led us to re-imagine communication: enable distributed teams to collaborate on new product introduction in real-time, improve product integrity and automate production. Riven software is used today by innovative manufacturers and product development firms to build products more efficiently across a variety of production methods including additive manufacturing, injection molding, machining and casting.
Riven was founded in the year 2017 and is headquartered in California, United States.
Scintillating 3D Data Solutions and Services offered
Sintering Process: Deformation of sintered metal parts has become the most difficult problems to diagnose. With Riven’s automatic Go/No-Go tool, many companies were able to quickly identify problem parts before they were sent to post-processing. This quick mid-process product integrity check saved them thousands of dollars in wasted engineer-hours. They were able to quickly iterate the design using insights from Riven, which saved even more design time. After getting several batches of parts that didn’t meet specs, this firm used Riven to diagnose warping. Riven’s CAD-compare highlighted needed changes not found by the vendor and was the key decision point needed to move to a new source. The scans were used for DFM with new vendors, who used the scans to validate molding software predictions and meet design intent. It accelerates new product introduction by reducing iterations and improves development efficiency by boosting product and process understanding.
Riven 3D scanning: Deviations in first-article or mid-process stage components during NPI create major problems for manufacturers. The inability to understand product issues causes excessive development iterations, shipment delays, and cost overruns leading to unprofitable NPI and dissatisfied customers. These challenges apply to conventional manufacturing, such as injection molding, and advanced methods, such as metal additive manufacturing. It enables new product introduction (NPI) engineers to quickly and easily scan physical parts, clearly understand detailed physical part deviation from CAD design intent and easily collaborate to resolve issues. It helps to collaborate across teams and resolve problems faster through a real-time cloud-based platform.
