Geomagic Freeform Plus enables you to solve complex design and manufacturing challenges. The industry's most comprehensive organic 3D engineering tools deliver a perfect delta between art and engineering, combining touch-based sculpting, surfacing, design intent modeling, 3D Scan processing, CAD interoperability and mold making. Get the sensation of clay modeling with the benefits of digital design.
Design with a Different Approach Break through the limitations of traditional CAD design and bring your visions to reality. Geomagic Freeform Plus offers a comprehensive design and sculpting toolset allowing you to sculpt, detail and deform virtual clay models into any form you desire. The software takes these toolsets into advanced manufacturing design including automatic conversion of digital clay and polygons to NURBS surfaces, mold and die design, structure and custom-lattice creation, shelling, draft analysis, parting line and surface creation tools for complex organic shapes. Design Anything with Built-inPrecision Freeform picks up where traditional CAD software stops. This hybrid modeling system has the flexibility and benefits of many different modeling paradigms incorporating Surfaces, Solids, Mesh, SubD, and Clay. Make smooth surfaces and razor sharp edges with SubD, model precisely defined CAD shapes with NURBS and Solids or deform and emboss shapes with Clay. Geomagic Freeform Plus' comprehensive StructureFX™ toolset delivers the freedom to select existing patterns or create custom complex, internal and external lattice structures for lightweight and beautiful designs. Advanced tools create functional cages for applications such as custom medical implants. These tools work alongside the advanced 3D print analysis tools for perfect and successful 3D printing of your designs. This software includes a Geomagic Touch X haptic device - a true 3D interface with force feedback to make design as intuitive as working in real clay. What's new in 2017.1: - Artec Scanning Tool The Artec Scanning tool provides the ability to capture 3D scan data directly in Freeform by using a supported Artec scanner. This tool allows for a full scan-to-mesh workflow from within Freeform including scanning, editing, merging, and optional post-processing functions like applying texture data. See Mesh Tools Palette>Artec Scanning in the Freeform Help for more information.
