Artec 3D Announces Integration of Handheld Scanners with 3D Systems’ Geomagic Freeform

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Artec 3D, a world-renowned developer and manufacturer of professional 3D hardware and software, today announces the integration of its portable, hand-held 3D scanners with Geomagic Freeform®. Geomagic Freeform is an organic design software which features a rich set of hybrid modeling tools to rapidly create organic models with fine, intricate details and prepare the models for manufacturing. Integration of the two technologies creates a streamlined workflow from reverse engineering an existing object to the creation of a manufacturing-ready design. With Artec 3D scanners, organic objects can easily be captured directly into Freeform, where users can access a variety of advanced design capabilities including touch-based 3D sculpting, surfacing, design-intent modeling, 3D scan processing, mold making and CAD interoperability. This new combination of solutions unleashes unlimited creativity and design options.

“The new integrated bundle of our professional, handheld 3D scanners and the Geomagic Freeform platform delivers an extremely efficient workflow,” said Artyom Yukhin, president, and CEO of Artec 3D. “Whether you want to capture and replicate an existing object as-is or use it as the basis for an entirely new design, our scanners can provide a high-quality detailed 3D model to use as a starting point. This eliminates the time, cost and possibility of error associated with digitally recreating the geometry of organic objects from scratch.”

Artec’s 3D scanners can quickly capture the texture, size, and geometry of an object with high accuracy. The easy-to-use devices are also engineered with advanced tracking systems to eliminate the need for an object to be covered with targets when scanning. These features make Artec’s scanners a popular solution for various professional industries, including healthcare, manufacturing, science and education, historical preservation, automotive and aerospace, art and entertainment, and more. The ability to easily edit these scans using Freeform® creates a new level of design flexibility and freedom.

“We are continually looking for ways to streamline our customers’ workflows and provide them with advanced design to manufacturing tools that they can use in the most intuitive way,” said Carol Zampell, VP Software Solutions, 3D Systems. “Freeform software together with Touch X™ or Touch™ haptic devices creates a hands-on design experience. By combining our offering with Artec’s 3D scanners, designers can take a physical object and, within minutes, be able to feel and manipulate it as if it was made of clay.”

Never has it been so easy and quick to go from physical object to a design optimized for manufacturing. Built-in features detect and correct potential manufacturing issues early in the design process, saving the time, cost and headache of dealing with avoidable design flaws. The Geomagic Freeform software also includes robust interoperability tools to handle the import and export of 3D file formats like STL, OBJ, PLY, IGES, STEP, other neutral formats, and additional CAD formats through Geomagic Freeform Plus.
