Creaform (portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services) , has upgraded its scan-to-CAD software module. Part of VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform and application suite, VXmodel features a new collaborative functionality for direct transfer to Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS and streamlined workflows for reverse engineering and additive manufacturing in scan-to-CAD to print applications.
Some of the improvements added in this latest VXmodel include: direct transfer to SOLIDWORKS of all the essential information that is needed for a reverse engineering process. Information is automatically transferred into the CAD software in a single click.
Regarding the texture menu: the Go!SCAN 3D colour acquisition is now supported, and the Best fit alignment method uses VXmodel’s alignment tools to align STL files together.
VXmodel is an excellent addition to Creaform’s line of 3D scanners, by combining simplicity with power in a clear and user-friendly software interface. It features all the tools needed to prepare a scan-based STL file for 3D printing, such as mesh editing, alignment, geometrical entities and cross-sections and NURBS surfaces.
