Industry experts weigh in on the future of maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO)
On June 1, 2021, ZVerse, along with media partner 3dpbm, hosted a virtual event featuring industry experts discussing the top 5 digital manufacturing and supply chain trends that are enabling on-demand maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO).
Experts from Circular Supply Chain Network, BI Norwegian Business School, ExOne original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and the Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association covered industry research, strategy, and solutions, along with networking opportunities. ZVerse president, David Craig, also gave a first-look demo of ZVerse’s 2D to 3D technology.
A lack of 3D part assets remains one of the greatest barriers to fully realizing the benefits of predictive maintenance, an essential investment for industrial supply chain leaders.
Enabled by Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) advances, digital communications infrastructure, and sensor hardware technologies, predictive Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) systems are a bold leap forward, but the lack of digital 3D part assets remains one of the greatest barriers to meeting digital manufacturing and supply chain transformation goals.
Digital manufacturing solutions company ZVerse, has announced the launch of 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 states and that 44% of parts that arrive at digital manufacturing service bureaus do not have a 3D model.
Digital Manufacturing and Supply Chain Leader’s Automation-Assisted Conversion Generates Usable 3D Digital Assets from Legacy 2D Manufacturing Plans for Service and Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) Part Production Speed, Scale, Savings, and Sustainability.
May 3, 2021, Columbia, SC: Digital manufacturing solutions company ZVerse, Inc. has announced the launch of 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.

Insights for Advanced Manufacturing Leaders
The time and expense required to re-draw or reverse engineer 3D CAD assets for digital manufacturing is one of the greatest barriers to scaling production for legacy repair parts.
Supply chain digital transformation initiatives, while a breakthrough for the industry, are leaving advanced manufacturing leaders and research and development teams with technical debt challenges stacking up on their desks. Digital twins and 3D assets are needed for digital manufacturing production of legacy repair parts, but many of these parts were originally documented on 2D paper or in PDF technical drawing files. …
Selon ZVerse Service Metrics, « 44 % des pièces qui arrivent dans les bureaux de service de fabrication numérique n’ont pas de modèle 3D. » Malgré le nombre de technologies de fabrication additive déployées pour répondre aux besoins de production de pièces de maintenance, de réparation et de révision (MRO) à la demande, les ingénieurs restent limités par le manque de fichiers numériques 3D précis, ce qui, dans une certaine mesure, entraîne des temps d’arrêt des équipements.
Designing an efficient, functional, and useful product requires the careful investment of valuable resources. The same is true of producing that same product. Successful businesses recognize the attention and commitment required for both processes.
A significant issue exists at the nexus of design and manufacturing, one so common and accepted that it can be difficult to fully recognize or name the problem. Most current methods for bringing a product design into production are functional but far from ideal. They tend to be repetitive and labor-intensive while lacking scalability and effective methods for collaboration.
This issue, which we have defined as…
ZVerse, developer of the first automated 3d design on demand platform for digital manufacturing, and Carbon®, a leading silicon valley-based digital manufacturing company, today announced a strategic partnership to offer enhanced design support to Carbon® production partners and customers.
Columbia, S.C. / Redwood City, CA.: The demand for production grade 3d printed parts continues to grow as hardware and material science evolves. More companies are adopting additive manufacturing as a viable option to replace traditional manufacturing methods for end use parts or for parts used in their plants. Additive manufacturing removes the traditional manufacturing design constraints, but the design process…
Design Collaboration from Concept to Production: Solutions to Accelerate Digital Manufacturing
Technology has enabled engineering and manufacturing to move forward in many areas. Yet, there is a critical information gap in part files before products move to production. This breakdown results in re-designs, delays, cost implications, and quality issues.
Optimize design and manufacturing by creating a transparent, collaborative digital workspace for stakeholders.
Technical debt is not on your balance sheet, not addressed on your roadmap and often an afterthought, but ultimately can be the difference between executing swiftly and being paralyzed as you scale, grow and support your product(s). Technical debt is the cost of design decisions made that do not position your product for future growth.
Converting 2D-CAD to 3D-CAD files at scale remains the roadblock standing in the way of the digital manufacturing journey for legacy and MRO parts. …
