Seamless SCAN-to-CAD Workflow All Inside SOLIDWORKS Environment
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS provides a subset of industry-leading Geomagic Design X toolsets for transforming scan data to CAD modeling inside SOLIDWORKS.
If you are a SOLIDWORKS user, creating accurate solid CAD models from scan data can be a challenge, especially when dealing with parts with complex organic shapes. Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is a reverse engineering plug-in that exists inside SOLIDWORKS. Extract sketches and features from 3D scans using Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS, and model them with the SOLIDWORK tools you already know and love. It makes history-based modeling from scan-to-CAD that much easier.
Use Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS to capture the design intent of complex geometry of physical objects accurately that would be difficult to measure in any other way (ie. traditional hand tools or measuring equipment). You can import data or scan directly in SOLIDWORKS and use the feature extraction wizards to extract CAD sketches, surfaces and solids. Reverse engineer with 3D scanning empowers you to tackle more projects in less time.
Reverse engineering is great for:
What’s special about Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is that it consists of a subset of the tools in Geomagic Design X standalone reverse engineering software—but accessible directly inside SOLIDWORKS. Built on 20 years of experience in making the most out of 3D scan data, it is the most comprehensive reverse engineering plugin for SOLIDWORKS you will ever find. Empower yourself and get all the tools you need to take on any challenges.
Get the most complete Scan-to-SOLIDWORKS CAD software solution with Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS.
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS include easy to use tools to edit scans and align to the coordinate system. Add complex design elements and build creative models around scanned components. Now, you can scan any part and create manufacturing-ready designs. The latest version of introduces enhanced importing and scanning, streamlined workflows, and enriched user experience to empower you to elevate your 3D scanning workflow and product development process to the next level.
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 instant feedback on your features to help make design decisions and maintain design intent. Confidently create CAD bodies that are accurate to your input scan data.
Perfect for complex organic shapes, the exact surfacing tool automatically creates perfect surfaces from scan data inside SOLIDWORKS with the Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS scan processing tools.
Region Grouping Tools allow for smart grouping of scan data elements for feature extraction directly inside SOLIDWORKS. This intuitive pre-processing step minimizes tedious manual work to save time..
Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS makes it easy to align your scanned part to SOLIDWORKS’s World Coordinate System using a variety of tools including picked point alignment for multiple scan data sets.
You can now import scan data file formats that include vertex colors or texture mapping. Get more clarity and context with color. You can toggle on and off the texture and color information in color scan data. The latest version is updated with more 3D scanner compatibility and provides a wider point data format support.
Use the intuitive Geomagic scan processing tools directly inside SOLIDWORKS. Geomagic For SOLIDWORKS includes mesh construction from point cloud or merging of multiple meshes. Polygon processing tools including decimation, smoothing, noise reduction, and hole filling. In the latest version, multiple scans can now be selected and edited at the same time which speeds up the mesh editing workflow.
The complete 3D scan-to-CAD workflow in Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS:
Scan, Mesh, Sketch, and Model
Take advantage of 3D scan data by importing or scanning directly into SOLIDWORKS to easily extract cross-sections and reference geometry. Use the familiar SOLIDWORKS tools and workflow to quickly sketch and model features.
Scan, probe, or import directly into CAD environment.
Reduce the time required to build complex 3D models of real world objects. You can now scan directly into SOLIDWORKS using popular industrial 3D scanners including:
You can also import scan files into SOLIDWORKS from popular file formats exported from all 3D scanners. Import scan data from file formats including:
STL, PLY, OBJ,
G3D, .ASC, SCN,
VTX, 3PI, .AC,
BTX, GPD, PTX
