3D Systems’ Geomagic Design X combines 3D scan processing and complete CAD design functionality to enable faster, more accurate and reliable reverse engineering than possible with other methods, the company says. According to the company, using the software’s newest features, engineers will benefit from streamlined modeling workflows as well as expanded modeling pathways for complex, revolved parts.
The Geomagic Design X release includes an Unroll/Reroll function. Using a comprehensive suite of mesh processing tools, an engineer can unroll the mesh to automatically extract a 2D sketch, make the modifications needed, and then reroll the sketch for additional engineering. The Selective Surfacing features in Geomagic Design X 2020 simplify the hybrid modeling process, providing easy workflows for traditionally difficult parts with both organic and prismatic features. This results in accelerated productivity while providing greater downstream CAD re-usability, and maintaining control over model accuracy.
Through early feature and capability preview, Geomagic Design X customers on-maintenance are expected to be invited more efficiently into the R&D process - providing early access to innovations and the ability to share feedback. This new plugin structure enables 3D Systems to quickly gather customer support requests – and in many cases more efficiently delivering support for customers’ business critical needs.
Geomagic Design X 2020 is planned for general availability in late May 2020.
