Prodim Bent Glass

Prodim Bent Glass is a complete software for the reverse engineering, fabrication and quality control of bent glass constructions. 
The software enables glass manufacturers to Measure - Model - Flatten - Frame and Compare 3D glass shapes. Prodim Bent Glass is built in a way that we can provide a tailored package fitting a glass manufacturer's needs.

Bent Glass - Model

Create 3D Glass surfaces.

The Model module helps glass manufacturers to create a 3D glass surface from Proliner measurement data or existing drawings. Complex operations like sampling data, interpolating edges, fitting the surface and mesh creation become very simple.


Bent Glass - Flatten

Transform 3D surfaces to 2D unfolded production shapes.

The Flatten module enables glass manufacturers to transform a 3D surface to an unfolded 2D surface with only one mouse-click.

Mechanical stresses based on FEM-analysis are calculated in the same process and the result is clearly visualized in multiple views. The 2D surface can then be exported as a simplified 2D contour shape to prepare it for production.

Bent Glass - Frame

Create digital support frames to construct molds.

The Frame module enables glass manufacturers to generate a digital support frame based on a 3D glass surface model.

The support frame can be edited to meet with the manufacturer’s production standards. The digital frame can be exported as a complete 3D drawing as well as in simplified 2D sections. PDF reports with relevant construction data can also be exported.

Bent Glass - Compare

3D Match surface models for IST and SOLL quality control.

With the help of the Compare module, glass manufacturers can easily match two 3D surface models using various aligning methods. Nominal data and quality parameters can be defined and compared for both, surfaces and boundaries.

The results and possible deviations are clearly visualized in 3D and can be exported as simplified 2D section views to also compare the results in 2D. Detailed PDF quality reports can be generated as well.

Prodim Proliner Construct Series

The Proliner Construct Series main focus is construction and production. The CS machines are durable and designed to be used in tough working conditions. They are lightweight and can be easily carried on and off job sites. They provide all you need to measure, to check and to edit digital templates on site.

Prodim will introduce Prodim Bent Glass at Glasstec 2016

Do not miss the chance to improve your digital templating process at Glasstec!

René Teune, Managing Director of Prodim International explains: “We have been working with the glass industry since 1995, it is one of the main industries we supply our products to. With our Proliner technology and special industry software we offer glass manufacturers the solutions they need to improve their digital templating and overall production process.”

Proliner technology: “Measuring with a wire”

The Proliner is a unique portable digital measuring tool positioned between a Tracker and CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine). Measuring is done by simply marking relevant points with a measuring pen, which is attached to a wire and measuring head that can rotate 360 o. The Proliner will register the 2D/3D coordinates of the marked points. Measurements can be edited and exported as DXF-files using the Proliner’s touchscreen and integrated CAD software.

The Proliner’s unique advantages for digital templating glass constructions

René Teune continues: “Digital templating with a Proliner provides particular benefits. Set-up, levelling or the use of targets is not required and while measuring the Proliner has no hindrance from sunlight, reflections, dust or any other environmental circumstances. Mirrors and all kinds of glass colours can also be measured without any problems. Because you actually mark points in the measuring process the Proliner provides unmatched accuracy and flexibility. An operator can measure flat, curved and very complex glass shapes in an instant.”

Dedicated software solutions for the glass industry

“At Prodim our mission is to improve the daily business processes of our customers. To that end the Proliner has shown to be the most reliable digital templating solution for glass manufacturers who would like to significantly speed up their total production process and reduce costly errors.” René Teune continues. “Complementary to our Proliners we have also developed dedicated glass industry software to get the most out of Proliner measurement data.”

Proliner Glass CT: manage and edit glass measurements on-site

 “Take Proliner Glass CT for example, it enables operators to create and manage measurement projects. Measurements can be edited and finalized on-site. Details like cut-outs, profiler edges and seams can be added and the operator can export multiple type of files like PDF project reports and CNC-ready production files. This way we help glass manufacturers to get the most out of the Proliner measurement data and integrate it in the entire production process.”

Prodim Bent Glass: model – flatten – frame – compare

“Prodim Bent Glass is another leading software for the reverse engineering and quality control of a 3D glass shape. It enables glass companies to model a 3D glass shape from a Proliner measurement, transform it to a 2D unfolded shape (including a FEM analysis), construct a production mold and use it for IST and SOLL quality control. In practice, many glass manufacturers have to perform several time-consuming operations to get to these results. With Prodim Bent Glass this can be achieved in a few clicks saving a lot of valuable time!”   

Visit Prodim at Glasstec 2016 in Hall 14 Booth B12

“All our Proliner digital measuring machines and additional software solutions will be demonstrated live at the Glasstec fair. We invite you to come visit us to experience how our products can improve your daily work process.” René Teune concludes.

Prodim press release - Glasstec 2016

We are making the best digital glass templating solution even better

Prodim will be showcasing their Proliner digital measuring machines from the Industry Series (IS) and Construction Series (CS) used for the digital templating of flat, curved and double curved glass shapes. Mr. Luca Gasparini, International Sales Manager at Prodim explains what Prodim is currently working on towards Glasstec 2016.

 “At Prodim our goal is to improve the daily business processes of our customers. To that end the Proliner has shown to be the most reliable digital templating solution for glass fabricators who would like to significantly speed up their total production process and reduce errors. This is realized because of the Proliners’ unique digital measuring technique providing accurate digital templates for any kind of glass shape. There is no need to set-up targets or hindrance from reflections or sunlight. The Proliners’ easy operation makes it the fastest and most accurate digital templating tool within the glass industry.”

Dedicated glass industry software to get the most out of Proliner measurement data

“We focus on more than only providing accurate digital templates”, Luca Gasparini continues. “That is why we developed software solutions like Proliner Glass CT, which enables operators to create and manage glass measurement projects on-site. The operator can edit and finalize measurement drawings, include cut-outs, profiler edges and seams. Position all the project parts on glass slabs. Export multiple type of files like PDF project reports and CNC-ready production files. This way we help glass fabricators to get the most out of the Proliner measurement data and integrate it in the entire production process.”

“Prodim Unfold desktop software, which creates a 3D digital template of a (double) curved glass constructions based on 3D points measured with a Proliner (IS) is another leading solutions. Prodim Unfold transforms the 3D digital template to a 2D digital template to be used for production of the 3D glass shape, including the necessary information to create a mold."

Quality control for 3D glass shapes

Luca Gasparini continues: “We use the technology of Prodim Unfold to create a 3D model of a produced glass shape and compare it to the CAD-file of the original glass shape and are looking forward to demonstrate this quality control function and more to glass fabricators at Glasstec 2016”.
