Close to 50 industry professionals attended the event - many from the local aerospace community including Standard Aero, Boeing Canada and Magellan Aerospace. The day started with the PC-DMIS Users Forum that included new PC-DMIS features, as well as a review of some powerful PC-DMIS Tools such as Virtual Fixture, Clearance Cube and Collision detection to name a few.
A popular portion of the seminar was a preview of our CMM E-Learning courses. CMM E-Learning is a series of instructional videos comprising all the course material from a full training program, including quizzes at the end of each segment. Guests were able to take a run through of an actual lesson as well as review the curriculums available.
