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:

  • Direct transfer to SOLIDWORKS: Thanks to the “Direct transfer to SOLIDWORKS” function, all the essential information needed for your reverse engineering process such as NURBS surfaces, cross-sections and geometrical entities are automatically transferred into the CAD software in a single click!

  • Texture menu: The Go!SCAN 3D color acquisition is now supported. Reapply the texture from a scan acquisition to the clean mesh for original quality rendering.
  • Best fit alignment methods: Use VXmodel’s alignment tools to align STL files together.
  • And much more!

A great addition to Creaform’s line of 3D scanners, VXmodel combines simplicity with power in a clear and user-friendly software interface. It features all the tools needed to prepare a scan-based STL file for 3D printing, such as mesh editingalignmentgeometrical entities and cross-sections and NURBS surfaces.
