Seoul, South Korea - Nov 23, 2009, INUS Technology, Inc. (www.rapidform.com) today announces that Breuckmann, based in Baden-Württemberg Germany, has signed a sales agreement to offer Rapidform 3D scanning software to buyers of its 3D scanners.
Dr. Calvin Hur, Senior Vice President of Global Sales for INUS Technology, remarked "Through our partnership with Breuckmann, a technology leader in white-light 3D scanning hardware, we are offering best-in-class reverse engineering, inspection and other engineering solutions to high-end customers worldwide," he continues, "This further extends Rapidform software to support the sophisticated needs of our customers in automotive and aerospace industries."
Breuckmann scanners collect 3D point cloud and mesh data of real world objects, and Rapidform software processes 3D scan data for a variety of downstream uses in manufacturing, R&D, quality control and elsewhere. This new extension of the companies' existing collaboration efforts brings new value to the 3D scanning marketplace.
Many companies use Breuckmann scanners to capture the geometry of parts and the tools that make them, in order to create CAD models where none existed before. There are a handful of software products available to convert the scan data into CAD models, but Rapidform XOR is the only one that creates CAD solids with parametrically-driven feature trees. This allows users to make perfected models rather than copies of imperfect real-world parts. Crucially, users can also edit the CAD models inside Rapidform XOR, or in SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER or Siemens NX.
Breuckmann scanners are also used for quality inspection purposes along with Rapidform XOV. The XOV software allows for precise alignment of scanned parts to pre-existing CAD models, and then generates deviation color maps to reveal any manufacturing errors in the part. Users can also perform geometric dimensioning and tolerancing on the parts after they have been accurately scanned with a Breuckmann scanner.
Dr. Bernhard Breuckmann, founder and CEO of Breuckmann GmbH, commented on the new partnership, saying "These days manufacturing companies of all sizes are increasingly looking for 3D scanning technology, and as a result the reverse engineering market is also growing very fast. The synergies of Breuckmann scanners with Rapidform software provide a world-class solution to our customers."
