What is Geomagic Control X?

Geomagic® Control X™ is a professional metrology software that lets you capture and process the data from 3D scanners and other devices to measure, understand, and communicate inspection results to ensure quality everywhere. With Geomagic Control X, more people in your organization can:

  • Measure faster
  • Measure more often
  • Measure more completely
  • Measure anywhere
  • Ensure Quality Everywhere

    Bring the power of 3D scan-based inspection to more people in more places with software that makes it easy to both capture and interpret scan data.

    Gain Deeper Insights Beyond Pass/Fail

    3D scanners capture far more information than a hand tool or CMM ever could. Control X lets you leverage that rich data to understand why parts are in or out of tolerance.

    Optimize Manufacturing Processes

    With insights gained from comparing scanned parts to CAD models or golden parts in Control X, stakeholders can recognize and address issues faster than ever.

  • "Using Geomagic Control X, our testing is 2-3 times faster than in the past, and we can aim for much higher manufacturing efficiency."

    Tetsuya Matsumoto, Quality Assurance Manager at leading automotive supplier Asano, Japan

What Can You Do with Geomagic Control X?

Geomagic Control X Inspection software compare results


Design for Manufacturability
Use Control X to check prototypes and address manufacturability issues such as deformation after molding or casting.

Don’t Just Find Problems, Fix Them
Any inspection software can show you where parts are out of specifications. Control X integrates tightly with CAD and Geomagic Design X so you can update your 3D CAD models to compensate for any problems.


Identify and Resolve Manufacturing and Assembly Issues
Scanning provides a complete view of your parts. Control X gives you the tools and the flexibility to understand how and why a part may have issues and keep production on track.

Eliminate Costly Scrap and Rework
Empower more people to inspect incoming parts from suppliers to prevent defective parts from making it to assembly.

Solve Your Toughest Measurement Problems
Control X has the tools to satisfy demanding quality control requirements, so you can solve your most complex metrology challenges. Go beyond simple alignments and color maps.

Improve Quality Documentation
3D scanning a part creates a complete digital record of all of its geometry. You can perform additional measurements at any time, even when the part is no longer physically present. Discover an issue six months from now? Just pull up the scan and check any dimension – no need to remeasure the part.

Reduce Quality Control Bottlenecks
Control X is so intuitive, you don’t have to be a highly trained or experienced metrologist to use it. Combined with the portability of 3D scanning, more people in the organization can leverage 3D scan-based inspection.


Assess Damage, Deformation or Wear Accurately and Consistently
Scanning reveals wear or deformation even in unanticipated places. Control X’s automated alignment and deviation analysis tools make it easy to locate and measure part wear.

Predict Part Failure Before It Happens
Monitor changes in a part’s geometry over time to catch unforeseen problems and take corrective action. Control X includes trend analysis and reporting, so you can predict when a part or tool might fail.
