LA JOLLA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 30, 2008—, the providers of CAD integrated reverse engineering software for measurement, 3D digitizing, and scanning physical molds, models or parts, has announced the release of their plug-in for Pro/Engineer Wildfire 4, which allows users to design faster while maintaining high quality products.

ReverseEngineering.coms plug-in for Pro/Engineer Wildfire 4.0 allows engineers and designers to capture data from existing parts while remaining directly within the Wildfire 4.0 environment, says Chief Technology Officer Braxton Carter. This helps maintain association with one another, ensuring accuracy, and in turn, speeding the process from napkin and product, to market.

In order to create digitized datums, lines, splines, arcs, and circles, the Pro/Engineer Wildfire 4 plug-in also embodies a new user interface for improved end user work flow.

The new interface also supports switching digitizing between millimeters and inches.

Digitized enhancements may now be aligned for Part-To-Cad Reverse Engineering and Inspection, said Braxton. Aligning digitized parts to drawing view requirements.

The align laser scan point clouds to PCMM coordinates allows the plug-in for Pro/Engineer Wildfire 4.0 to work with scanned points and sketch features in a model tree. X, Y, and Z read out while all of the digitizing features have been enhanced for real time digitizer cursor position.

The simplified lock plane point cloud processing is available through HighRES Integrated Point Processor (HIPP). Complex sheet metal designs are now conceivable with the plug-in.
