Geomagic Capture is a family of powerful, integrated scanner and software systems for professional Scan-Based Design and quality inspection. It is available in six application-specific configurations, combining the best of Geomagic software with a compact, ultra-precise blue light LED scanner.
Geomagic Capture enables designers and engineers to incorporate real-world objects into CAD as a seamless part of their engineering workflow. Geomagic Capture for quality inspection delivers precision scanning integrated with Geomagic’s high-quality inspection tools in a seamless, push-button manner. Withunprecedented performance and affordability, Geomagic Capture ushers in a new era of design-to-manufacturing productivity and utility.
Take the next step in product design and inspection with 3D scanning. Geomagic Capture is the first complete system that combines advanced blue LED scanner technology with easy to use software to supercharge product development and manufacturing.
There’s a reason automotive designers still use clay: Starting from a real physical shape remains the best way to conceptualize and communicate complex shapes. Scan-Based Design empowers more creative product design for any industry, because it connects the real world with your design process.
Geomagic Capture represents a brand new design paradigm in which existing objects provide inspiration for innovative new products. Geomagic Capture’s 3D object scanner provides high-fidelity data that goes directly to CAD. Improve upon, learn from, customize and reuse the designs that surround you every day.
Geomagic Capture isn’t just a 3D scanner. Each package includes software or plugins that deliver the right output for your needs. Options include output to native formats for every major CAD software for Scan-Based Design, and detailed reports for quality inspection.

Every Geomagic Capture system comes complete with everything you need for Scan-Based Design or Inspection.
The scanner is pre-calibrated at the factory and offers accuracy of 60 microns at the near field (about 0.3m from the scanner) to 118 microns at the far end of the field (about 0.5m from the scanner).
No, the Capture scanner requires no targets to align multiple scans.
Yes! We do not limit the software that comes as part of any Geomagic Capture package, so it will work with all 3D scanners.
Geomagic Capture for SolidWorks and Geomagic Capture for SpaceClaim require SolidWorks or SpaceClaim to function, which are not included in the package.
For all other Geomagic Capture packages, no additional software is required to create CAD models or inspect parts.
Versions 2013 and 2014, 32 and 64 bit
No, the Capture scanner is built to collect precision geometric measurements only.
The Capture scanner uses proven technology that’s been powering 3D scanners for more than a year.
The 3D Systems Sense scanner is a consumer device that costs just a few hundred dollars and is aimed at home users and hobbyists. It’s accurate to a few millimeters, which makes it impractical for most professional uses. More information about the Sense is available at cubify.com/sense.
Geomagic Capture works flawlessly with SolidWorks® and SpaceClaim® via plugins and connects directly to Siemens® NX™, Solid Edge®, Creo®, Pro/Engineer® and Inventor® via Geomagic® Design™ X software. With the power to scan directly into CAD, you can design highly complex parts faster via one seamless workflow.
The ultra-compact Geomagic Capture scanner captures precise data using state-of-the-art blue LED technology. This amazing device captures almost one million points in 0.3 seconds to create detailed models of physical objects, accurate to 0.060-0.118 mm.
Geomagic Capture utilizes industry-leading technology from Geomagic and Rapidform. With the combined expertise of two industry leaders that are now part of 3D Systems, you get the easiest, most powerful Scan-Based Design software technology combined with proven scanning hardware.
