  • What is Geomagic Design X?

    Geomagic® Design X™ makes it easy to extract new value from existing products by creating CAD models from 3D scans faster, more accurately, and more reliably than any other reverse engineering method. It connects directly to your existing CAD environment and creates native files that accurately represent a scanned object.

    • Broadens your design capabilities.
    • Enhances your CAD environment.
    • Accelerates time to market.
    • Leverages existing assets.
    • Reduces costs.
    • Helps you do the impossible.
  • What Can You Do with Geomagic Design X?

    Geomagic Design X includes features that are purpose-built for converting 3D scan data into high-quality, feature-based CAD models. It does what no other software can with its combination of automatic, guided solid model extraction; incredibly accurate, exact surface fitting to organic 3D scans; mesh editing; and point-cloud processing. Scan virtually anything and create manufacturing-ready designs.

    • Rebuild CAD data for broken tools and molds.
    • Recreate non-existent or lost CAD data for parts and molds.
    • Design custom products.
    • Convert physical parts into CAD for new product designs.
    • Make existing parts fit with new parts.

    Geomagic Design X supports all major scanners and portable CRMs seamlessly. Read our 3D scanning guide to find out what types of scanners can work for your needs.

    Use Geomagic Design X with Geomagic Control X™ 3D inspection and metrology software and Geomagic Wrap® 3D scanning software for a complete, scan-based design and inspection package.
