RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., October 20, 2010Geomagic® has announced that its 3D reverse engineering and inspection software products have been updated to enable new features and support additional languages.

With the release of Version 12, Service Release 1, Geomagic Studio®, Geomagic Qualify™ and Geomagic Wrap® have been updated to support users who speak Portuguese, Czech and Russian.  This is in addition to the wide range of languages previously supported (English, German, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish) by Geomagic software.  Version 12 SR1 also includes advanced support of 3D mouse functions for improved 3D navigation and support for import of Vialux scan data.

Other updates to Geomagic products in Version 12 SR1 include:

  • Additional user interface tools that allow easier customization of options for users and new right-mouse-button functionality.
  • The ability to create reports in PowerPoint formats from Geomagic Qualify.
  • Improved profile editing, freeform parameterization, and fitting of lofted surfaces in parametric surfacing for Geomagic Studio.
  • Support for Faro plug-ins on Windows 7 platforms.

“The addition of three new languages is exciting for our users in South America, Czech Republic and CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] regions who will now have access to Geomagic’s patented processes for rapidly creating 3D polygon data directly from scan data,” said Tom Kurke, COO, Geomagic. “Resellers and partners are already being recruited to support Geomagic products and customers in these regions, and we anticipate seeing healthy growth of our user base as a result.”

The release of Version 12 in June 2010 delivered a dazzling array of new and improved tools for creating 3D models from scan data, and for rapid inspection of parts and products. The addition of the new ribbon-style interface significantly boosted ease-of-use for customers. Enhancements to Parametric Exchange tools enabled much faster, more intuitive creation of full-fidelity 3D CAD models from Geomagic Studio. New reporting tools and support for output of reports into 3D PDF from Geomagic Qualify streamlined operations for quality inspectors and managers.

This latest update builds on that initial new release, further improving the user experience to make Geomagic software the industry’s easiest to use for accurate, fast and precise reverse engineering and inspection.

The latest version of the software is available to all customers via the Geomagic Customer portal. Geomagic Wrap, Geomagic Studio and Geomagic Qualify are all available as 30-day free trial downloads. To register, visit www.geomagic.com.
