Imagine being able to capture anything in the physical world and have a digital solid model of it in minutes.

Geomagic® for SOLIDWORKS® is the industry’s most complete integrated Scan-to-SOLIDWORKS model solution. Reduce the time required to build complex 3D models of real world objects by directly scanning or importing scan data into SOLIDWORKS. The advanced, automated wizards quickly and easily create accurate sketches, surfaces or feature-based editable solid parts inside SOLIDWORKS.

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is a software toolset that plugs directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment giving you advanced capabilities to make tools point clouds and polygons more usable in your design process. This software supports a range of popular 3D scanners as well as the import of standard point and polygon file formats. You can import data or scan directly in SOLIDWORKS and use the feature extraction wizards to extract CAD sketches, surfaces and solids.

Effortless design at your fingertips

Use proven industry-leading tools from Geomagic directly inside your SOLIDWORKS environment. Easily create solid, feature-based parts using the precise scan registration, automated smoothing, mesh editing, auto sketch creation and intelligent extraction of feature tools implemented inside SOLIDWORKS. Make use of deviation analysis tools along-side your modeling process to confidently create CAD bodies that are accurate to your input scan data.

Do the Impossible

Create products that cannot be designed without reverse engineering. Build components that integrate perfectly with existing products or customized parts that require a perfect fit with the human body. Use proven industry-leading tools from Geomagic to make organic shapes useful in your SOLIDWORKS environment. Capture the design intent of complex geometry that cannot be measured any other way.

Powerful and Flexible

Create solid parts with Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS. The combination of mesh editing and point cloud processing, automatic and guided feature extraction and accurate and fast exact surface fitting to organic 3D scans help create useful feature-based solid models. Now, you can scan virtually anything and create manufacturing-ready designs.

Rapidly recover lost design data

Lost design data? Have an old part with no drawings? Have worn or broken molds that need to be recreated? Bring legacy parts into a digital design environment and combine scan-driven modeling with dimension driven processes. Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS lets you quickly and easily create SOLIDWORKS parts for highly complex and broken parts in one seamless scan-based design workflow.

3D Scanning Freedom

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS supports a range of industrial 3D scanners for direct Scan-to-SOLIDWORKS including Artec 3D Scanners, Creaform, FARO, Hexagon, Nikon, Vialux and the Capture scanner from 3D Systems.

3D Comparison with Deviation Analysis

Quickly and easily compare a CAD object and a mesh object. Every wizard in Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS has a deviation analysis tool to check feature accuracy as you model. Get real-time information on your features to help make design decisions and maintain design intent.
