Creaform Streamlined workflows for reverse engineering
France – Portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services company Creaform has announced its latest upgrade to its scan-to-CAD software module.
Part of VX-Elements, the company's 3D software platform and application suite, VX-Model now features a collaborative functionality for direct transfer to Dassault Systèmes Solidworks and streamlined workflows for reverse engineering and additive manufacturing in scan-to-CAD to print, the company says.
Creaform explains that in the direct transfer function, all information needed for the reverse engineering process such as Nurbs surfaces, cross-sections and geometrical entities are automatically transferred into the CAD software with a single click.
Also, for its texture menu, the Go!Scan 3D colour acquisition is now supported, in that, texture from a scan acquisition can be reapplied to the clean mesh for original quality rendering. Another improvement is that STL files can now be aligned together, the company adds.
