Geomagic Control X focuses on helping your organization measure more parts, more often, and in more places. Empower your staff and stakeholders to improve quality at every step of your design and manufacturing processes. Significantly improve quality of manufactured parts and assemblies using powerful tools inside Control X to compare 3D scanner data with CAD models or a golden standard. Build inspections with total accountability and traceability throughout the entire process.
Why Use Geomagic Control X?
Geomagic Control X helps you in every step of your process from design, manufacturing, inspecting, to maintenance. Uncover any potential issues before they happen. Learn how to fix the source of the problem before it costs delays in the production schedule.
Check prototypes and address possible manufacturing issues before they arise (i.e. deformation after molding/casting).
Find Problems and Fix Them
While other inspection software only shows you where parts are out of specifications, Control X complements with CAD and Geomagic Design X scan-based design software. Update 3D CAD models to compensate for any problems.
Identify and Resolve Manufacturing Issues
Digitizing physical parts into 3D models using a 3D scanner provides a comprehensive view of your parts. Working together with Geomagic Control X, scan-based inspection provides you with the tools and the flexibility to understand how and why a part may have issues and keep production on course.
Reduce Costly Scrap and Rework
Inspect incoming parts from suppliers to prevent defective parts before making it to the production line.
Scan-based Inspection (3D Inspection)
Solve Your Complex Measurement Problems
Geomagic Control X has all the tools you need for even the most demanding quality control requirements.
Measure Once – No Need To ReMeasure The Part
Improve your quality documentation process. 3D scanning allows you to have complete digital records of a physical part and all its measurement information. You can pull up the 3D scans and check any dimensions at any time in the future.
Assess Irregularities Accurately And Consistently
3D scanning reveals damage, wear and tear, and deformation even where you least expected. Geomagic Control X’s automated alignment and deviation analysis tools make it easy to locate and measure part wear.
Predict Part Failure Before It Happens
Monitor changes in a part’s geometry over time to catch unforeseen problems and take corrective actions. Geomagic Control X has trend analysis and reporting, so you can forecast when a part or tool might fail.
Geomagic Control X Essentials
Two affordable editions of the software to get you started on scan-based inspection.
This latest release focuses on making the inspection process easier, allowing access to everyone who participates in the inspection process. Enhanced features provide greater productivity in metrology workflows.
Free Inspection Viewer
Empowers Any Contributor To Analyze A Project And Create Custom Reports
Geomagic Control X has a new free Inspection Viewer that empowers anyone to open Control X projects and view data with full 3D control and viewing customization, even without a software license. You can also modify or create inspection reports with ease to review only the data needed. The ability for any contributor to analyze and share reports across an organization ensures effective communication.
Agile Powerful Probing Capabilities
Large Assemblies, Heavy Equipment, And Other Industrial Applications Are Easier To Inspect
The new version of Control X has 20 new geometry probing methods to ensure fast and accurate inspection of large parts using portable CMMs. They give you the flexibility to adapt to challenging feature construction inspection requirements. You now have the flexibility and traceability when it comes to repositioning scanning equipment with the newly enhanced Move Device functionality. Easily evaluate each probe point’s influence on inspection results with the updated probe point management system.
Accurately Identify and Understand Root Causes Of Manufacturing Errors Easily With Per-Axis Inspection
You can now identify root cause errors by isloating each individual axis (XYZ). This enables XYZ components of geometries and dimensions to be individually evaluated in order to provide clarify on sources of error for manufacturing processes like castings and additive. Additionally, the ASCII importer has been updated to allow the import of geometry with these tolerances as variables.
Customize Groups of Similar Annotations Help Ensure Clear And Concise Communication
Complimenting the new Directional Tolerances and our Inspection Viewer, Control X now has object-dependent annotations. Communicate clearly with any organization group or level easier and faster. Apply separate annotations presets to any individual dimensions to further customize reports. Reduce the clutter and include only relevant dimensions, GD&T call-outs, and general annotations for each feature.

Key Features to Control X
CAD-Aware Dimensioning, PMI Support, and 2D & 3D GD&T Callouts
With extensive Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) tools, you can analyze size, form, orientation, and location of features according to the ASME Y14.5M standard using Geomagic Control X. Intuitively dimension and constrain features directly from CAD, or import PMI/MBD enabled models for dramatic improvements in inspection process setup efficiency.
Measure Dimensions Instantly
Because Control X automatically recognizes features in nominal models (regardless of whether they’re CAD models or scans of golden parts), measuring dimensions
in 2D or 3D is incredibly quick and easy.
Automate the Entire Process
Every aspect of your inspection project is recorded in Control X’s model manager. Additional parts can be inspected with a few clicks–or no clicks at all, with the help of the patch processing app that can run in parallel on multiple PCs.
Align The Way You Want
Control X has streamlined alignment methods to cover every inspection scenario:
Automatic feature-based alignment
Best fit aligment with contraint options RPS, datum, 3-2-1 alignments
Adaptive & homing alignments
