Dec 10 / Landen Seal
Anaheim, CA, December 10, 2020 – 

Open X has partnered with Verisurf Software, a world leading Metrology and Reverse Engineering Software firm, to bring high quality, affordable and accessible career skills training to the field of Metrology. 

Individuals and Employers are now able to acquire online skill training on the major key skills within the Metrology field, beginning immediately with courses include Reverse Engineering, (which includes Fast 3D Scanning to 3D Printing Workflows), and powerful 3D Surface Modeling.  Future courses to include Portable Inspection, and Programmable CMM Inspection.
“Technology continues to grow exponentially in today’s Manufacturing and Engineering fields. We are experiencing a significant shortage in skilled workforce as key infrastructure such as training struggles to keep up. With many considering access to these advanced skills inaccessible, tens of thousands of well paying careers go unfilled for months leaving a critical pain point for people and employers. This partnership takes a grand step towards solving that problem” said Cody James, Founder & CEO at Open X.

What is Metrology?

Metrology is the scientific study of measurement - in the fields of Manufacturing and Engineering, it is the fundamental understanding of the size, shape and being of a part. This field applies to most all manufacturing activities, and is considered a critical link in Aerospace and Automotive for example, as even a difference of 0.001" can impact the overall fit, form and function of a finished product. 

The demand for certified and skilled Metrology workers is rising at an unforeseen pace, leaving a substantial opportunity for individuals to enter the field and for the existing workforce to augment their skillsets to provide further value.  

One technical skillset that is quickly emerging from the increased dependence on Model Based Definition is dimensional metrology, the measurement science of length, size, and dimension measurement in 2D and 3D real world and digital space. To compare, analyze, and verify the physical real part to the Original Computer Aided Design-Model of the part.

 Over the last two decades, dimensional metrology technicians have been in high demand, with the trend line growing exponentially higher, especially within tier one aerospace entities and their supply chains, including; Department of Defense; NASA; The Boeing Company; Northrop Grumman; Lockheed Martin, SpaceX and more.

Verisurf Software
“At Verisurf we have always maintained a philosophy of developing practical metrology solutions. Our software is one of the easiest to learn and use; it is also the most compatible and open platform on the market, supporting all CAD file formats and virtually any new or legacy Computer Measurement Machine (CMM) in use, today,” said Ernie Husted, President, and CEO of Verisurf Software.

 “We feel it is our responsibility to support our customers and manufacturing employees at large with high-quality training and support. This is the driving force behind our partnership with Open X,” added Husted.
Verisurf training, using the Open X online platform, is available 24/7 to any organization or individual seeking to learn dimensional metrology skills needed in today’s technology-based and automated manufacturing environments.

Courses can be accessed using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. For more information or to sign up, you can create a free account on Open X's website. 

Fundamentals of Reverse Engineering

As part of this newly launched partnership, any individual seeking further knowledge in the field is able to sign up for the Open X <> Verisurf online skill training program for Reverse Engineering. This course will give any individual the ability to achieve a full working capability within the world of Reverse Engineering and even receive access to the Verisurf Software through a student copy. Individuals taking the course can revisit it 24/7/365 from any device, whether on a desktop, mobile or tablet - and can continue their progress from other devices through the Open X cloud based platform.
