Creaform, a leader in portable 3D measurement solutions, 3D engineering services and software, has released the new VXmodel, its 3D scan data post-treatment software module, fully integrated in VXelements 4.0.
It provides the simplest and fastest path from scans to your computer-aided design or additive manufacturing workflows.
New and practical functionalities included in the software release are:
- Powerful auto-surface: Use VXmodel’s tools to automatically generate NURBS that characterize freeform surfaces in a high-quality patch network. Thanks to the auto-surface function, the scan is automatically converted to an IGES or STEP file.
- 3D mesh comparison: This is a new functionality that enables deviation measurements between two meshes or between a CAD model and a mesh. This easily validates your reference scan with the conformity of your reverse engineering.
- STL import: Users can benefit from a more flexible solution that enables the import of the standard STL file format.
Simple, yet powerful, VXmodel also combines functionalities, such as alignment, geometrical entities and cross-sections, mesh improvement and mesh editing. It features all the necessary tools to help you modify the 3D scan mesh, making it watertight and able to quickly generate print-ready files for your rapid manufacturing process. All in all, the new VXmodel offers a complete and competitive solution offering unprecedented user experience.
Creaform also recently launched VXinspect, its new dimensional inspection software module.
