Come join us at Camden Yards on Thursday, October 1, 2015 for a celebration of National Manufacturing Day and join in the celebration of Maryland manufacturing as the Orioles take on the Toronto Blue Jays. The RMI of Maryland and MD MEP are excited to be able to host this year’s celebration of manufacturing day at Camden Yards. The purpose of the Maryland Manufacturing Day at the Yard is to show appreciation to the manufacturing companies, their employees and their families who work tirelessly making things right here in Maryland!

Allowing this next generation of industry leaders the opportunity to see all of the amazing products that are made right here in Maryland and giving them the chance to learn the stories behind these products will help to inspire each young mind and get them excited about all the opportunities that a career in manufacturing can offer them!..Read More....

Job Shops are Losing Money Using the Wrong CAD

Job Shops are Losing Money Using the Wrong CAD | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

You’ve heard the expression, “Time is money.” It’s credited to Ben Franklin, and it couldn’t be more true. You can’t get time back, no matter how hard you try.



So…if 52% of the respondents of the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Study spend between 4-24 hours a week fixing geometry, that loss of time is costing contract manufacturers money, plain and simple. This even happens when the files are in the same CAD application. The complexity of that file can make it impossible to make modifications—and let’s face it—modifications are the norm. This is why direct modeling is becoming more and more important for the future of job shops. And organizations that rely on Direct Modeling have a competitive advantage since they can open it in native formats and dramatically reduce the time spent fixing broken geometry.
