Our company is purchasing an Automated CMM. I have had experience in programming/operating Brown & Sharpe CMM's with PCDMIS software. It seems the Zeis "sales pitch" caters to the person that knows nothing about CMM's or programming of CMM's (more user friendly for the beginner). My concern is that Zeis will limit the advanced programmer.
Has anyone used both of these programs extensively? If so, what are the good points/bad points of each?

Partial Reconfiguration (PR) allows FPGAs to dynamically change modules without disrupting other parts of the design. This paper discusses the use cases of partial reconfiguration as well as considerations when designing partial reconfiguration firmware using the Xilinx Vivado design tool targeting the RFSoC.

With a growing number of parts manufactured directly by additive manufacturing techniques, it is important to lay down design principles suitable for such manufacturing processes and to ensure parts are designed for additive manufacturing. There are several factors that are to be considered at the design stage. Few such design issues in additive manufacturing are discussed in this paper. Download Now
Plastic parts not only need to meet the short-term color and appearance requirements, but also need to be resistant to long term color shift and fading. This paper discusses various points related to aesthetics of plastic parts and what design engineers need to know about science of color and appearance. Download Now
Material, design, tooling and processing are as important as the four wheels of a high performance of a car. Use of simulation tools play an important role as well. This paper also throws light on DFMPro â€“ a design assistant solution. DFMPro provides a rule-based approach to information on direct and indirect aspects of design performance and cost. Download Now
