3D Systems has released the latest version of its reverse engineering software, Geomagic Wrap 2017. According to the company, Geomagic Wrap makes it possible to transform 3D scan data and imported files into 3D models for immediate use downstream.

Geomagic Wrap 2017 is said to offer improved workflow productivity for users with expanded support for multiple file formats, as well as enhanced Python scripting for improved automation and extensibility.

New geometry modification and analysis functions expand the applications for Wrap. It is now possible to flatten cylindrical geometry, enabling better analysis and visibility with the new Unroll tools. Users can now also analyze cross-sections with new dimension and measurement tools; fine-tune color models for enhanced realism and texture mapping; and define part markers and labels inside geometries with Entrapped engraving.
