3D CIC + QIF Summit 2017 Theme:
UNITE: Engineering & Shop Floor Collaboration


The 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress focuses on CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. More than ever before, information needs to be digital and fully associated as Model-Based Definition (MBD), Model-Based Enterprise (MBE), Smart Manufacturing, and Internet of Things (IoT) continue to evolve. For discrete manufacturing, this means CAD interoperability and collaboration to enable the digital thread.

3D CIC returns to Golden, Colorado for the 2017 event, with the theme: UNITE: Engineering & Shop Floor Collaboration. Real users share their experiences for all stages of the product lifecycle, with the focus on real-world challenges and solutions for turning design concepts into manufacturing product reality using 3D models.

New this year is the coordination of the Quality Information Framework (QIF) Summit with 3D CIC, through partnership with the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC). Comprising the QIF Summit are the biennial QIF Symposium, QIF Working Group meetings, and a DMSC member meeting. 3D CIC has expanded to three days to feature the QIF Symposium on the third day. The three-day joint event will be held October 3-5, 2017.

DMSC’s mission includes promoting the development and interoperability of standards that support dimensional metrology, such as the QIF ANSI standard. The Quality Information Framework enables the capture, use, and reuse of metrology-related information throughout the Product Data/Lifecycle Management (PDM/PLM) domain. The QIF Symposium will focus on the benefits and implementation success stories of the QIF standard from real users.

Watch this video for an introduction to the Quality Information Framework.

An event about collaboration and interoperability would be nothing without networking. The 3D CIC + QIF Summit joint event is intentionally organized to maximize information sharing and networking with intimate seating (consider unplugging from your laptop), ample breaks, and three happy hour receptions.

CAD user groups for Model-Based Definition/Enterprise are returning for 2017! Find out more about the NX, SOLIDWORKS, PTC, and Inventor user groups on the Agenda page

Action Engineering produces 3D CIC with the support of 3D CIC’s founder and long-time lead, David Prawel of Longview Advisors. We are grateful for Mr. Prawel’s continued support.
