International STEP-NC Demonstration, Boeing Renton Plant, Renton, WA, October 12-13 2010

On October 12-13, 2010, the STEP Manufacturing team (ISO TC184 SC4 WG3 T24) met at the Boeing facility in Renton, Washington for STEP-NC international testing and demonstration.

This round of demonstrations applied STEP-NC to setup compensation with on-machine measurement of part and fixture datums using a FaroArm. During the preparation for this round, a series of compensation extensions to the STEP-NC model were discussed and refined, then implemented within STEP-NC Machine for validation and further testing. The resulting model adds several new frame definition and compensation workingsteps as well as associated measurement geometry. Browse the minutes of the meeting for presentations and discussions.
