Mr. Daniel Campbell is the Director of Business Development at Capvidia. He has more than 15 years of experience in the field of digital metrology. Before Capvidia, Daniel was a Principal and the Software Director at Metrosage, where he had the primary responsibility for the design and development of the Pundit CMM measurement uncertainty simulation software. Since then, Pundit CMM has become a part of the Capvidia suite of solutions. Daniel has a solid foundation in software design and dimensional metrology. His interests in metrology have led him to lead various working groups on standards in this area for ANSI QIF. Daniel is currently the Chair of the QIF Working Group, and a member of the Board of Directors of the Dimensional Metrology Standards Consortium (DMSC). Daniel has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from the University of San Francisco.

Tomasz Luniewski, CEO and founder of CAPVIDIA NV, Headquarters, Belgium (tl@capvidia.com)

Tomasz Luniewski has graduated in 1979 at the Faculty of Machine Design at KTH Royal Technical University of Stockholm (Master of Science degree). 1979-1984 worked at LKB Produkter AB (medical instruments) as design and research engineer. 1982-1996 at LMS International (now Siemens) Belgium holding over years different positions ranging from software development, technical support, sales, marketing and management functions (director of marketing). Since 1994 own software engineering company CAPVIDIA (previous TESIS Software) specialized in the development of engineering software applications for 3D CAD MBD and CFD simulation. Active participation in organization developing standards such as DMSC – QIF, PDES-STEP and ISO, over 20 years’ experience in CAD data interoperability now focused on digital transformation of engineering processes to support Industry 4.0 and MBD/MBE concepts.


Frank Popielas concluded the meeting with discussion and other topics. These include a one-day workshop on “Model-Based Engineering: What Is It & How Will It Impact Engineering Simulation?” to be held Oct. 1 in Columbus, OH.
