Creaform releases new major functionalities for its VXmodel 3D scan-to-CAD software

VXmodel is now more powerful and more flexible, delivering all the tools required for complete scan-to-CAD and scan-to-print workflows.

Lévis, Québec, May 12, 2015 – Creaform, worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions, 3D engineering services and software, released today 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. This latest addition completes VXelements’ software platform and application suite with VXmodel for reverse engineering and VXinspect for quality control.
