Morrisville, N.C. – October 30, 2012 – Geomagic®, a global company providing 3D technology for digital reality, has announced with Solutionix, a worldwide developer and distributor of 3D digitizing technology, today announced a distribution agreement in which Solutionix will exclusively provide Geomagic scan software with its Solutionix Rexcan CS Plus scanning systems.
The agreement allows scanner customers to quickly get started with complete, accurate and easy-to-use 3D scanning solutions for both metrology and reverse engineering, at a reduced price.
Rexcan CS Plus scanner users can now enjoy full integration with Geomagic Qualify, a leading 3D metrology software platform, and Geomagic Studio, which delivers easy-to-use tools for processing scan data into usable 3D polygon, surface and CAD models. From a 3D scan, Geomagic’s powerful and straightforward software makes it simple to integrate data into CAD, export models for 3D printing, transfer models to animation platforms, perform first-article and production inspections, manage quality and more.
“Geomagic and Solutionix both want to make 3D data and modeling workflows more accessible and simple, so the partnership is a natural fit, and the bundle is a game-changer for any engineer’s processes,” says Len Chamberlain, VP of Sales, Geomagic. “Customers get top-notch equipment along with the best 3D reverse engineering and inspection software. The system is quick, adaptable and affordable. That’s a win for everyone.”
The Solutionix Rexcan CS Plus, the company’s latest scanning solution, is a complete, accurate system that features automatic scanning, calibration and alignment of scan data. In desktop applications, users can simply set an object on the integrated 2-axis turntable and, with a single mouse click, begin scanning. For larger objects or in workspace applications, the scanning head can be removed and mounted on a tripod. Upon its release at the TCT Live 2012 conference, the fully automated CS Plus system impressed visitors with its scanning volume flexibility, which is delivered through interchangeable lens sets.
“Rexcan CS Plus employs a new process where full automation is implemented into a structured-light 3D scanning system. Through integration with Geomagic, a global leader of 3D metrology software, we’ll be able to provide users with automation, convenience and high accuracy, in a reasonably priced, single platform solution,” says Jet Kim, Director of Sales, Solutionix.
