Geomagic Design X

Born from a spark of inspiration in 1983, 3D Systems has run on innovation for over 30 years. Co-founded by the inventor of 3D printing, Charles (“Chuck”) Hull, 3D Systems has grown into a global 3D solutions company focused on connecting our customers with the expertise and digital manufacturing workflow required to solve their business, design or engineering problems.

Geomagic Design X

Geomagic Design X (formerly Rapidform XOR), the industry’s most comprehensive reverse engineering software, combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing so you can create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with your existing CAD software.

Broaden Your Design Capabilities

Instead of starting from a blank screen, start from data created by the real world. Geomagic Design X is the easiest way to create editable, feature-based CAD models from a 3D scanner and integrate them into your existing engineering design workflow.

Accelerate Time to Market

Shave days or weeks from product idea to finished design. Scan prototypes, existing parts, tooling or related objects, and create designs in a fraction of the time it would take to manually measure and create CAD models from scratch.

Enhance Your CAD Environment

Seamlessly add 3D scanning into your regular design process so you can do more and work faster. Geomagic Design X complements your entire design ecosystem, with native output to SolidWorks, Siemens NX, SolidEdge, Autodesk Inventor, PTC Creo and Pro/ENGINEER.

Leverage Existing Assets

Many designs are inspired by another. Easily scan into your CAD system. Learn from it. Reuse it. Improve on it. Easily rebuild your old parts into current CAD data, create drawings and production designs.

Do the Impossible

Create products that cannot be designed without reverse engineering and customized parts that require a perfect fit with the human body. Create components that integrate perfectly with existing products. Recreate complex geometry that cannot be measured any other way.

Reduce Costs

Save significant money and time when modeling as-built and as-designed parts. Deform an existing CAD model to fit your 3D Scans. Reduce tool iteration costs by using actual part geometry to correct your CAD and eliminate part spring back problems. Reduce costly errors related to poor fit with other components.

The Fastest Path from 3D Scans to Your CAD Software Workflows

Works Seamlessly with Your Existing CAD

Geomagic Design X connects directly to popular CAD software, including SOLIDWORKS®, Siemens NX®, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor® and PTC Creo®. Using unique LiveTransfer technology, Design X transfers complete models, including feature trees, so you can quickly create solid and surface models from 3D scans.

Powerful and Flexible

Geomagic Design X is 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 and guided solid model extraction, incredibly accurate exact surface fitting to organic 3D scans, mesh editing and point cloud processing. Now, you can scan virtually anything and create manufacturing-ready designs.

Heavy-Duty Capabilities for Demanding Projects

Geomagic Design X’s extensive toolset combines CAD tools, industry leading scan processing tools, and all the firepower you need to take on the most challenging projects. It handles billions of scan points and has a complete host of features to fix data issues, letting you skip scan cleanup and begin creating CAD models immediately.

Works Like Your CAD Software

If you can design in CAD, you can start using Geomagic Design X right away. It’s fully-renewed user interface and workflow tools make it easier than ever before to quickly and accurately create as-designed and as-built 3D CAD and model data.
