The adaptive manufacturing platform that connects part design, production, and inspection with a powerful AI.
Blacksmith for X7 establishes and streamlines the quality
control process for additively manufactured parts. Get to
market faster with confidence in your parts. By scanning
parts while they print, the X7 is the only industrial-grade
FFF 3D printer with in-process part verification.
1. Calibrate Machine
The onboard laser micrometer scans an OEM certified artifact to field calibrate the X7, enabling unparalleled printer consistency and scan accuracy.
2. Print and Scan Part
As you slice a part, Eiger’s patented intelligent scanning algorithm creates an integrated scan toolpath. The X7 scans the part while printing and creates a point cloud of dimensional data.
3. Analyze Data
Blacksmith compares the point cloud measured during printing to the design file, generating a detailed error field for the part and overlaying it on the initial STL.
4. Generate Report
Eiger presents this error field in an easily parsable online report. Using these tools, you can set tolerance limits, compare different prints of the same part, and browse a centralized scan library of print quality data.
