Features 3D Reverse Engineering and Inspection Software working with SolidWorks 2012

MORRISVILLE, N.C., Feb 9, 2012– Geomagic®, the leading provider of 3D software for creating and inspecting digital models of physical objects, will be demonstrating its latest 3D Reverse Engineering and Inspection software products throughout the SolidWorks World event, being held in San Diego, CA from February 12-15, 2012.

For the event, Geomagic will focus on 3D imaging workflows with SolidWorks 2012, allowing point cloud data to be turned into accurate 3D models using Geomagic Studio and transferred seamlessly into SolidWorks with a full history-tree included. Conversely, SolidWorks data can be imported into Geomagic Qualify for instantaneous comparison and measurement in an inspection environment.

The Geomagic 2012 products were released in November 2011 and deliver powerful new features including:

Geomagic Studio 2012

  • New Sketch function for direct editing of cross-sections from point cloud models
  • Robust scripting environment for automated functionality
  • Improved navigation with ‘walkthrough’ commands
  • New Remesh tool to retriangulate polygon models
  • New Patch command for quickly and accurately repairing polygon models

Geomagic Qualify and Geomagic Qualify Probe

  • Native file import from SolidWorks at no additional charge
  • The new QuickProbe function to create features quickly and intuitively
  • Improved GD&T callout tools
  • Airfoil analysis included at no additional charge
  • Greatly improved support for probing workflows

“Geomagic products are certified for accuracy and have proved to be the easiest products on the market to use for point cloud into CAD workflows in product design, engineering and manufacturing,” said Kevin Scofield, Product Manager, Geomagic. “The Geomagic 2012 products are truly exceptional and focus on a broader range of data collection tools, greater ease-of-use, speed and improved performance.”

Visitors to SolidWorks World 2012 can experience the entire workflow starting with scanners, Geomagic software and into SolidWorks, at booth # 337.
