Creaform announces direct transfer to SOLIDWORKS feature in upcoming VXmodel software release

VXmodel’s scan-to-CAD and scan-to-print workflow is now faster and more streamlined!

Lévis, Québec, October 7, 2015 –  Creaform, worldwide leader in  portable 3D measurement solutions and  engineering services, announced today the latest upgrade to its scan-to-CAD software module. Part of VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform and application suite,  VXmodel features a new collaborative functionality for direct transfer to Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS and streamlined workflows for reverse engineering and additive manufacturing in scan-to-CAD to print.

“VXmodel provides engineers with a simple, yet powerful, software solution that significantly accelerates reverse engineering process time. It now fulfills its duty as an integrated bridge for scan-to-CAD processes more than ever,” said Simon Côté, Product Manager.

Here are some of the improvements added in this upcoming release of VXmodel:
