Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS
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 for SOLIDWORKS
Imagine being able to capture anything in the physical world and have a digital solid model of it in minutes.
Geomagic® for SOLIDWORKS® is the industry’s most complete integrated Scan-to-SOLIDWORKS model solution. Reduce the time required to build complex 3D models of real world objects by directly scanning or importing scan data into SOLIDWORKS. The advanced, automated wizards quickly and easily create accurate sketches, surfaces or feature-based editable solid parts inside SOLIDWORKS.
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is a software toolset that plugs directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment giving you advanced capabilities to make tools, point clouds, and polygons more usable in your design process. This software supports a range of popular 3D scanners as well as the import of standard point and polygon file formats. You can import data or scan directly in SOLIDWORKS and use the feature extraction wizards to extract CAD sketches, surfaces and solids.
Effortless Design at Your Fingertips
Use proven industry-leading tools from Geomagic directly inside your SOLIDWORKS environment. Easily create solid, feature-based parts using the precise scan registration, automated smoothing, mesh editing, auto sketch creation and intelligent extraction of feature tools implemented inside SOLIDWORKS. Make use of deviation analysis tools alongside your modeling process to confidently create CAD bodies that are accurate to your input scan data.
Rapidly Recover Lost Design Data
Lost design data? Have an old part with no drawings? Have worn or broken molds that need to be recreated? Bring legacy parts into a digital design environment and combine scan-driven modeling with dimension driven processes. Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS lets you quickly and easily create SOLIDWORKS parts for highly complex and broken parts in one seamless scan-based design workflow.
Open Up a World of Possibilities With Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is a bridge between physical parts and your CAD environment enabling rapid design, engineering, and production. Improve upon, learn from, customize and reuse designs that surround you every day. Bring physical objects into SOLIDWORKS and design around existing parts for perfect fits.
Do the Impossible
Create products that cannot be designed without reverse engineering. Build components that integrate perfectly with existing products or customized parts that require a perfect fit with the human body. Use proven industry-leading tools from Geomagic to make organic shapes useful in your SOLIDWORKS environment. Capture the design intent of complex geometry that cannot be measured any other way.
3D Comparison with Deviation Analysis
Quickly and easily compare a CAD object and a mesh object. Every wizard in Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS has a deviation analysis tool to check feature accuracy as you model. Get real-time information on your features to help make design decisions and maintain design intent.
Powerful and Flexible
Create solid parts with Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS. The combination of mesh editing and point cloud processing, automatic and guided feature extraction and accurate and fast exact surface fitting to organic 3D scans help create useful feature-based solid models. Now, you can scan virtually anything and create manufacturing-ready designs.
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS supports a range of industrial 3D scanners for direct Scan-to-SOLIDWORKS including Creaform, FARO, Hexagon, Nikon, Vialux and the Capture scanner from 3D Systems. Truly integrated 3D scanning and probing capability allows for noncontact measurement of complex or delicate shapes, as well as the contact measurement of geometric features.
Scan in SOLIDWORKS
Capture physical objects in 3D directly inside SOLIDWORKS using the Geomagic Capture® 3D Scanner – the most powerful, integrated, industrial-grade 3D scanner and software system. Bring the real world into the digital world and leverage existing shapes and designs in your own. Add complex design elements and build creative models around scanned components.
