Geomagic®, a leading provider of 3D software for creating and inspecting digital models of physical objects, announced the first service release of the Geomagic 2012 product lines. The Geomagic 2012 SR1 product line builds on the innovations introduced in the initial 2012 product release, with a focus on faster and more robust processing of large data sets, expanded availability of embedded CAD importers, and increased accuracy.
Enhancements to the products affect Geomagic Studio®, Geomagic Wrap®, Geomagic Qualify™ and Geomagic Qualify Probe ™ products for reverse engineering, 3D imaging, inspection, measurement and metrology.
• Updated CAD format support including Dassault Systems’ CATIA V5 R21 and SolidWorks 2012, plus NX 8, and Solid Edge ST4 from Siemens PLM
• New PMI support for CATIA V5 R21, as well as JT and STEP files
• Native support for PTC’s Creo files
This widened format support delivers greater freedom for customers to natively import 3D CAD data files of their choice into Geomagic Qualify and Geomagic Qualify Probe for immediate comparison to inspection and measurement data in quality workflows.
These changes enable faster and more intuitive user workflows, especially with large data sets. Users can now align data at low resolution, and quickly apply the transforms to the original, high-resolution data. More robust processing for noise reduction, and global registration means that large data can be turned into usable 3D faster and more accurately.
Improvements to the QuickProbe function enable more intuitive feature creation as a part is measured by customers in an inspection workflow using a portable CMM. In addition, the ‘Best Fit’ alignment for probe data ensures that the nominal model and probed data are perfectly aligned for measurement and comparison.
Geomagic 2012 SR1 is available now for Maintenance customers to download at no charge.
All versions of Geomagic products are available for free 30-day trial versions.
