  • 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.

    • Handles large scan data sets (millions of points) faster than any other reverse-engineering software.
    • Creates complex 3D models with hybrid modeling for solid, surface, and mesh.
    • Connects directly to your existing CAD environment and creates native files that accurately represent a scanned object.
    • Rapidly creates solids or surfaces like you would in CAD.
    • Transfers 3D parametric models with full design history directly to popular CAD software.
  • 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.

    • Broadens your design capabilities.
    • Enhances your CAD environment.
    • Accelerates time to market.
    • Leverages existing assets.
    • Reduces costs.
    • Helps you do the impossible.
    • 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.
