RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 28, 2011 —Geomagic® has announced that it has expanded its main European Headquarter facilities located in Stuttgart, Germany.

The new office space enables Geomagic to offer expanded training classes for its Geomagic Studio, Geomagic Qualify and Geomagic Wrap software products for reverse engineering and inspection. It also gives room for the company to host a partner hardware showcase for scanning and measurement on-site.

"We have doubled our office space in response to the growing market in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)," said Gerd Schwaderer, Business Development Director, Geomagic EMEA. "As the Geomagic team itself has recently expanded due to growing demand, we have seen an increase in training requests for our products. We are excited to now be able to offer more resources to our customer base."

The new office space also allows Geomagic to showcase partner hardware products on-site. This enables prospects and customers to quickly understand and evaluate the very wide variety of scanners and measuring systems supported by Geomagic, and also to experience typical reverse engineering and inspection workflows. Current hardware available on the showcase includes scanner products from Vialux, Creaform, Faro Technologies and Artec.

"3D scanners and measurement systems are a key element to the reverse engineering and inspection process," said Tom Kurke, COO., Geomagic. "Since Geomagic supports just about every type of scanner in the market, it also makes sense to enable customers to have one location where they can correctly understand and choose the right type of scanner for their needs. This will be a key part of Geomagic's expanded facility in Stuttgart."

The expanded Geomagic Europe office will open on July 1, 2011 and is located in Stuttgart, Germany.
