Geomagic Design X is promoted as the industry's most comprehensive reverse engineering software--combining history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing and enabling you to create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with your existing CAD software.
Start from the real world instead of from a blank screen. Geomagic Design X provides an easy path way from creating editable, feature-based CAD models from a 3D scanner to integrating them into your existing engineering design workflow.
You'll be able to re-use existing designs without having to manually update old drawings or re-measure and rebuild a model in CAD. You'll also reduce costly errors related to poor fit with other components.
Geomagic Design X is easy to learn and use. If you can design in CAD, you can start using Design X right away. It uses familiar history-based tools found in all major CAD products for solid modeling along with automated feature extraction from scan data and skips the old reverse engineering workflows involving polygon editing and surface generation. and
Being built on a complete CAD kernel (Parasolid) Design X gives you the flexibility to make real CAD models the way you want. With everything you need contained in one application, there's no need to flip back and forth between apps. It also works with every 3D scanner and makes native, feature-based models for every major CAD application.
All 3D scanners create point clouds or meshes, but those aren't necessarily all that useful for most design needs. Geomagic Design X is purpose-built to create manufacturing-ready CAD models directly from scan data.That's a tremendous benefit.
Can't happen:there is simply no faster way to get from unprocessed 3D scans to complete, feature-based solid models! Design X’s redesign tools save hours or days of work compared to reverse engineering using regular CAD software. Get the best of both worlds. Design X works with your CAD software, giving you the benefits of dedicated scanning software and maintaining compatibility with your existing design environment.
