Geomagic®, provider of digital shape sampling and processing (DSSP) software and services, has released Geomagic Studio 9. As a software tool, Geomagic Studio processes 3D scan data for applications ranging from reverse engineering to design and analysis.
This latest release of the digital reconstruction software features three major areas of enhancement: 3D feature-based modeling, advanced color texture generation, and versatility with user-defined patch layouts.
The software automatically creates accurate models from any physical part, making it ideal for emerging applications such as mass production of customized devices, build-to-order manufacturing, and digital-asset archiving for automatic recreation of legacy parts.
For design and manufacturing engineers, the new features provide automation through: 1) the auto-detection of 3D features; 2) a redesigned macro system with the ability to add logic and flow control to automation scripts; and 3) a system that enables users to define their own workflow processes to reduce (or eliminate) time-intensive tasks.
Geomagic Studio Release 9 is offered in English, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, and Italian.
