Geomagic Releases Studio and Qualify 12: Simple, Integrated and Powerful 3D Software

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 9, 2010 — Geomagic has released new versions of its 3D software for reverse engineering and quality inspection: Geomagic Studio 12 and Geomagic Qualify 12. The new releases bring unparalleled ease of use to the market for 3D scanning software, along with new features that improve results and save time.

Simpler, faster, more compatible

Geomagic Studio 12 directly integrates with leading 3D mechanical CAD packages, allowing users to quickly and easily create parametric CAD models from 3D scan data. Geomagic Qualify 12 includes an entirely new report generation and publishing engine that enables colorized and annotated 3D models to be embedded directly in PDF.

Both applications offer the familiar ribbon-style interface pioneered by Microsoft in Office 2007, support for Windows 7, and optimizations that speed runtime by up to 40 percent.

Geomagic Studio 12 represents a leap forward for Robb Rudluff, design engineer at pHluid, which provides engineering services that speed product development and improve quality for customers such as Quatro Composites, Edwards Lifesciences, Global Motorsports Group (GMG), Yamaha Motor Corp. and others.

“The new ribbon interface makes it simple to access the comprehensive features of Geomagic Studio 12 – they’re all right in front of you in a left-to-right layout,” says Rudluff.

Fastest path from points to CAD

Parametric Exchange – the exclusive Geomagic feature that enables parametric models created in Geomagic Studio to be transferred directly into 3D CAD software – has been significantly upgraded and expanded.

“The ability to automatically trim, join, cut or subtract surfaces and solids in Geomagic Studio’s Parametric Exchange further streamlines the process of turning scan data into fully parametric, native-format CAD models that my customers can put to immediate use,” says Rudluff.

New features in Geomagic Studio 12 that optimize the reverse engineering workflow include:

  • Automatic surface and solid trimming via Parametric Exchange, leading to faster creation of full-fidelity CAD models.
  • Enhanced Autosurface capabilities that convert polygon meshes into exact NURBS surfaces with one click.
  • More flexible workflows to support faster design iterations.
  • Fast and intuitive hole-filling and improved automatic “healing” of polygon meshes.

Ease of use, groundbreaking reporting

Geomagic Qualify 12 quality inspection software is called a “major step forward” by Rus Emerick, who leads 3D imaging implementation at Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management with operations in more than 100 countries and sales of 15.8 billion euros in 2009.

“The grouping of functional commands under tabs and sub-modules in the new GUI provides an efficient, process-oriented workflow,” says Emerick. “The improved Automation Designer enables users to easily create, edit and store a part’s unique verification and inspection process for use on current and future parts, ensuring all versions are inspected in an identical manner.

“But, the real bonus in Qualify 12 is the 3D PDF generator, which places an interactive 3D object in the report, enabling anyone with Adobe Acrobat to view and manipulate it. This capability delivers tremendous collaboration power for quality analysis teams throughout the enterprise.”

Other new features in Geomagic Qualify 12 include quick feature creation to speed up the creation of inspection plans and new algorithms for aligning test models with reference models.
