3D design is now a key technology for effective collaboration between manufacturing companies. Since the introduction of lightweight 3D data technology, "post-3D CAD/CAM/CAE data" is now compatible for use across manufacturing, sales and marketing processes. The successful use of 3D data throughout such processes has become indispensable for the competitive strength of companies in the manufacturing industry. For a company to survive and win in the manufacturing industry, it must not only accumulate lightweight 3D data, but also share this information within the company and with related companies, and train key personnel in the use of this data. 3D Manufacturing Innovation introduces the best practices developed by Toyota, Sony, Nikon, Casio and other pioneers in the global engineering scene, providing the reader with invaluable tips for manufacturing innovation. 3D Manufacturing Innovation is a valuable guide for corporate IT managers, consultants and professionals involved in CAD/CAM/CAE, as well as for vendors of digital engineering software.
