3D Systems has just launched Geomagic for Solidworks. This new plug-in solution will allow users to load and process large-point cloud and polygon models that would traditionally be too large for Solidworks to efficiently handle. Geomagic has specialized in processing point clouds from 3D scan data for many years. Now that powerful tool can be used directly in Solidworks, streamlining the engineering workflow.
This new software plug-in working directly inside Solidworks includes many of the traditional features you would find in Geomagic, including scan registration, advanced smoothing, NURB wrapping of polygons models, general hole filling and mesh editing, mesh error detection and cleanup, surfacing, and automated tools for extracting solid features. When modeling, an engineer can receive real-time feedback showing the deviation from the scanned model and the Solidworks model being created.
