3DSystems is a world leader in 3D printing solutions: personal, professional and production 3D printers. Inventor of stereolithography in the early 80’s, 3DSystems has developed for different 3D printing processes that replaces and complements traditional manufacturing methods. These help reduce the time and cost of designing new products by printing real 3D objects directly digitized.
Geomagic Design X
Geomagic Design X, the industry’s most comprehensive reverse engineering software, combines CAD with 3D scanning data processing so you can create solid, editable models based on features compatible with existing CAD software.
- Expand your design capabilities
Instead of starting from scratch, start from the real world. Geomagic Design X is the easiest way to create editable CAD models based on the features of a 3D scanner and integrate them into your existing engineering design workflow.
- Reduce costs
Reuse existing designs without having to manually update old drawings or laboriously measure and rebuild a CAD model. Reduce costly errors related to mismatching with other components.
- Works like CAD software
Geomagic Design X is easy to learn and use. In fact, if you can design it in CAD, you can start using Geomagic Design X immediately. It uses familiar modeling tools found in all major elements of CAD, along with automated feature extraction from exploration data.
Geomagic Capture is a powerful 3D scanning system and software that easily transforms physical objects into CAD and reduces product development time.
The ultra-compact Geomagic Capture scanner uses the latest blue LED light technology. This fantastic device captures nearly one million points in 0.3 seconds to create detailed models of physical objects, with an accuracy between 0.060-0.118 mm.
- Reduces Design Time
Take advantage of this consolidated design analysis system to accelerate the process and get your product to market faster. From physical objects, you can create a new product, or remake an existing one without having to redesign it.
- Unleash Your Creativity
There’s a reason automotive designers still use plasticine. Starting from real physical form is still the best way to conceptualize and communicate complex shapes. The Integral 3D Scanning System for Design allows a more creative product design for any industry, as it connects the real world with design.
- Make the most of the world that surrounds you
The Geomagic Capture and Capture Mini 3D scanners are innovative design systems where real objects provide inspiration for new products. The Geomagic Capture 3D scanner achieves highly reliable data that is sent directly to the CAD software. Improve, adapt and reuse the designs around you.
- Improve your CAD System
Geomagic Capture works directly on the SolidWorks® interface thanks to the integrated plug-in. And through Geomagic® Design X it connects directly to SolidWorks®, Siemens® NX, Solidedge®, Creo®, Pro/Engineer®, Inventor and AutoCAD®. You can digitize directly into CAD and design complex parts faster and more efficiently. No cracks in your workflow.
Geomagic Freeform is a multi-purpose design platform that allows you to create complex, sculpted, production-ready 3D models in order to prepare them for 3D printing or mold and stamping.
- Manufacture directly from your designs
Freeform models are incorporated directly into your 3D printing or mould making and stamping workflow. Geomagic Freeform Plus allows you to identify and solve potential manufacturing problems so you can maintain artistic control while avoiding production surprises and costly oversights.
Freeform models are incorporated directly into your workflow of 3D printing or mold and stamping.
Freeform Plus speeds up design times, improves accuracy, and virtually guarantees moldability with its wide variety of tools for analysis and creation of mold cores and cavities, as well as complex separation inserts, ramps, and geometries directly from your 3D model. These tools include Shelling, draft analysis and correction tools, thickness analysis, visualization and extraction of separation lines in real time, core and cavity extraction functions of molds, and development of complex separation surfaces. You can also use Freeform data to quickly print 3D microfusion patterns that enable fast and accurate investment cast creation. Design in the morning and mold in the afternoon with Geomagic Freeform.
Freeform and Freeform Plus are available with a Geomagic® Touch or Touch X haptic device. These haptic input devices provide force feedback to your hand and precise placement in 3D space, allowing you to push, pull, carve, stretch and soften models as if you were sculpting by hand.
- Design the impossible
Geomagic Freeform starts where its traditional CAD system cannot continue. Now you can design like you’ ve never done before, combining beautifully sculpted shapes with established production workflows. Go as far as your imagination takes you with Freeform.
- Enjoy a print
Instant 3D thanks to Freeform’s testing tools, you will be able to detect possible design errors in advance, facilitating your design-to-production process. You can take advantage of Freeform’s patented voxel technology to ensure that your designs are free of any topological errors and save yourself the need for expensive geometric analysis and repair software.
- A different approach
Geomagic Freeform has a unique capability to manage voxels, polygons, NURBS solids and sub-divisions, as well as surfaces, all in a coherent design environment. This allows you to use the right representation for the right job, giving you more options and enabling incredibly fast and flexible workflows. Freeform’s robust file import and export formats allow you to easily integrate sculpted designs with traditional CAD models.
