Photo Studio Lights

Formerly CADSEEK Mobile

If a picture is worth a

thousand words...

... what's it worth to know what's in the picture? 

Inventory often loses its identity, whether in an assembly plant, distribution center or especially in the field.  Too often these situations lead to scrapping perfectly good parts, or time wasted playing detective. 

The iDENTIFY application provides an efficient solution, using smart phone or tablet photos to not only identify the part, but also to retrieve potential substitutes. 

New - Release 3.0

iDENTIFY now works with STL files, allowing a direct path from photo to the 3D printer. 

iDENTIFY is not based on a learning approach , but instead works directly with your CAD library, allowing far greater accuracy, convenience and efficiency.

What is this?

How it Works

iDENTIFY is a smart phone or tablet application.

The photo is matched to CAD to identify the part and retrieve similar models. 

And iDENTIFY can even match STL files for 3D printing.

 

Use Cases for CADSEEK Mobile

IDENTIFICATION

Inventory at assembly plants, warehouses and distribution centers often gets orphaned, and field service or parts counter personnel are often put in the role of detective to determine the identity of parts with only sketchy information on model numbers or year of manufacture.    

SUBSTITUTION

The application not only identifies a part, but also simultaneously searches for any that are highly similar.  In  time critical situations, identical designs with different materials, different finishes or even ones that need slight modification may be desired in order to get machines back up and running quickly. 

 

3D PRINTING of SERVICE PARTS

As 3D printing quickly evolves from a rapid prototyping technique to a robust manufacturing technology, many organizations are planning its use for delivery of service parts. 

iDENTIFY provides a critical link by creating a direct path between a photo of a part and the STL model needed for the 3D printer. 

The future of service parts is already here!

Features

UNIVERSAL

Any CAD format including neutral formats such as STEP, IGES and STL. 

SECURE

The iDENTIFY shape signature is proven to be non-invertible allowing secure management of IP even when third-parties may be involved in the 3D printing process. 

MULTIPLE IMAGES

While a single image is usually sufficient, iDENTIFY allows the use of up to three images to identify a part.  

AUTOMATED EDGE DETECTION

It is often necessary to take images of parts while they are still installed.  iDENTIFY helps users eliminate the background elements and focus on the part.  

DIMENSION INPUTS

Rough part dimensions can be input to filter matches.

AUTONOMOUS or INTEGRATED USE WITH POLARIS

iDENTIFY can be integrated to extend a search directly into Polaris for CAD model inspection and more intensive searching.
