RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., January 11, 2002- Geomagic's Capture has been selected as one of the top 10 software products of 2001 by IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications, a worldwide trade publication serving the computer graphics industry.

Geomagic Capture simplifies processing of any kind of point data from 3D cameras, digitizers and coordinate measurement machines (CMMs). It is the first software that provides a complete solution for scanning a part and converting it into a digital polygon file for use with 3D CAD or graphics software.

Geomagic Capture is designed for fast, memory-efficient processing of large data sets, such as those from non-touch laser or structured-light scanners. It can register point or polygon data from any 3D scanner, and handle ordered or unordered data, multiple scans or a single point cloud. Output is compatible with most popular standard formats and a wide range of proprietary formats.

Companies worldwide are using Geomagic's products to scan physical parts and automatically generate accurate 3D digital models for customized manufacturing. Geomagic's customers include Toyota, Harley-Davidson, Align Technologies, Boeing, BMW, Honda and Richard Childress Racing.
