Reverse Engineering Software
Geomagic Design X
Geomagic Design X (formerly Rapidform XOR), the only 3G (third-generation) reverse engineering software, is a complete software application for creating CAD models from 3D scan data. With Rapidform XOR, you can open data from any 3D scanner and quickly create editable, parametric solid models of virtually any physical object. These models can be transferred from XOR into popular CAD applications, including SolidWorks®, Siemens NX™, Pro/ENGINEER®, CATIA® V4, CATIA® V5 and AutoCAD® with complete feature trees intact. This means that – unlike second generation reverse engineering software – the models from XOR are editable just like any other part designed in CAD. And XOR can save models as Parasolid®, STEP, IGES and STL for use in any CAD/CAM/CAE application. The third-generation parametric reverse engineering approach inside XOR makes creating high quality, ready to manufacture CAD models fast and easy. Creating complete solid models accurate to within a few microns of a 3D scan takes less time than redrawing it in CAD. XOR, paired with a 3D scanner, is simply the fastest, most accurate way to create a design model of a real-world object.
A Reverse Engineering software tool for collecting data with a digitizing arm directly into a modeler such as SolidWorks, Pro Engineer Wildfire, or Autodesk Inventor sketches. One of the differences that makes DezignWorks the best choice for RE is that it is feature-based reverse engineering software that is fully integrated inside of the modeler that you use.
DezignWorks is compatible with MicroScribe, Faro, Romer, Baces3D & Metris portable coordinate measurement machines.
Rhinoceros®, NURBS Modeling for Windows
Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, scan data, or only an idea—Rhino provides the tools to accurately model and document your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing or construction.
Rhino can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS curves, surfaces, and solids with no limits on complexity, degree, or size. Rhino also supports polygon meshes and point clouds.
