    geomagic

    Geomagic has been developed by 3D Systems. It is a leading, global provider of 3D content-to-print solutions including personal, professional and production 3D printers, integrated print materials and on-demand custom parts services for professionals and consumers alike. In line with our commitment to democratize access and accelerate adoption of affordable 3D printing we also provide creative content development, 3D CAD software, curation services and content downloads.

    Founded on the core principle of applying and advancing 3D technology for the benefit of humanity, Geomagic has achieved sustained growth by delivering new ways for innovators, designers and engineers to create and make products. With Geomagic software thousands of customers are delivering radical new products, revolutionizing medical treatments, making products safer, and changing the way things are made and manufactured. Geomagic is a leading provider of 3D software for creating digital models of physical objects.  Professionals involved in the design, reverse engineering and inspection of parts and products use Geomagic StudioGeomagic QualifyGeomagic Qualify Probe and Geomagic Wrap to shorten time to market and improve quality. Geomagic software is also used in the dental and medical markets to create customized restorations, appliances, prosthetics and treatment plans that help improve patient care.

    Geomagic software products lead the industry in enabling 3D reverse engineering and inspection of physical objects using 3D point cloud data from scanners. Our products are focused on ease-of-use, integration with customers’ workflows and being powerful enough to make a difference to the way our customers work and innovate.

    • Geomagic Studio is our flagship software for reverse engineering of parts, products, artifacts, shapes and objects. It is used by engineers, innovators, designers, artists, archaeologists, in fact anyone who wants to create an accurate digital version of a physical object for downstream design, development and innovation.
    • Geomagic Qualify allows rapid, accurate inspection and comparison of physical parts, both part-to-part and part-to-digital model, allowing engineers to check manufacturing quality, wear-and-tear and more.
    • Geomagic Wrap delivers super fast creation of 3D polygon models of physical objects and terrains for use in testing, analysis, investigation, entertainment and more.

    Founded in 1997, the company is based in Research Triangle Park, NC, USA, with subsidiaries in Europe and Asia and partners worldwide.

  • Features

    GEOMAGIC STUDIO 11

    Transform 3D Scan Data into Accurate Digital Models
    Designed to handle the most demanding reverse engineering, product design and rapid prototyping challenges, Geomagic Studio transforms 3D scan data and polygon meshes into accurate 3D digital models. A perfect complement to the CAD, CAE and CAM tools you already own, Studio outputs industry standard formats including STL, IGES, STEP and native CAD files.

    Geomagic Studio Features and Specifications

    Scan data processing

    • Process large data sets
    • Collect point data from all major 3D scanners and digitizers
    • Optimize scan data (using remove outliers, reduce noise and other available tools
    • Align and merge multiple scan data sets
    • Automatically or manually register multiple point clouds

    Point and polygon editing

    • Reduce dense data sets with random, uniform and curvature-based point sampling
    • Create polygon mesh from point cloud data
    • Modify, edit and clean polygon model
    • Automatically detect and correct errors in the polygon mesh
    • Detect and create features in the model
