Key Features of Geomagic Freeform Plus

 

Add Organic Design to Traditional CAD design

Geomagic Freeform Plus is purpose-built to get your design into production, including its robust interoperability tools to handle import and export of 3D file formats including STL, OBJ, PLY, IGES, STEP and other neutral formats. Freeform Plus supports additional CAD formats. Combine CAD files with sculpted features to create accurate organic solids that are defined by explicit dimensions.

Geomagic Freeform Plus supports the Geomagic Touch X device and delivers CAD interoperability, solid modeling tools, and mold design capabilities within the system.

Quickly Import and Repair 3D Data

Easily import STL, CAD, scan and other 3D data from any source and instantly use them in your designs. Quickly repair faulty and low-grade 3D data into smooth workable models. Employ sculpting and embossing tools to form texture layers into real, physical geometry that can be immediately 3D printed, used in traditional manufacturing or easily exported in a wide range of formats for downstream workflows.

Manufacture Directly from Your Designs

Geomagic Freeform Plus allows you to identify and remedy potential manufacturing issues early in the design process so you can retain artistic control while avoiding production surprises and costly oversights.  Confidently 3D print your designs with pre-printing analysis tools to ensure the part prints right the first time. You can also use Freeform data to quickly 3D print casting patterns for fast, accurate creation of investment casts. Powerful voxel technology exports water-tight models requiring no additional costly model repair software.

Capture to Freeform

Capture physical objects in 3D directly inside Freeform using the Geomagic® Capture™ 3D Scanner - the most powerful, integrated, industrial-grade 3D scanner and software system. Bring the real world into the digital world, and leverage existing shapes and designs in your own. Add complex design elements and build creative models around scanned components.

Key Features

In addition to the core sculpting and modeling toolsets availabel in Geomagic Freeform, Freeform Plus offers the following additional features, applications and workflows

Multi-represenational Modeling

  • Work seamlessly and switch between modeling in clay voxels, surfaces, Solids, mesh and SubD surfaces for the insutry's most flexible product design processes.

StructureFX tools

  • Create and edit structures, lattices, cages and shapes
  • Create immediately lightweight models for 3D printing
  • Build and deform custom structures, layers and shapes

CAD Solids and surface tools

  • Geomagic Freeform Plus features rapid CAD solids and surface tools to enable the very best options for any kind of modeling required.

3D Curves

  • Easily draw, repair and edit curves, project from a sketch and to a plane, intersect sketches and offset curves. Work with planes and surfaces where they intersect with curves, patches and solids.

Import/Export File Formats

  • Import and export 2D and 3D industry-standard formats including OBJ, STL, PLY, XML, ZPR, IGS, .IGES, .STEP, x_b, .x_t, and .sldprt and 3D export of polygon and 3D print formats.

Mesh, Paint and Rendering

  • Import mesh models and convert to clay, and then edit the data using a range of tools to stitch, deform and tug to desired shapes. Paint the data with airbrush tools, wrap images on a model and render with the KeyShot® rendering engine.

Evaluate and Analyze

  • Measure mass properties such as surface areas, volumes, piece density, and analyze piece-to-piece fit, intersections and thickness. Display the model with a choice of resolutions to increase processing speed, and opt for scalable secondary views.

Design/Prep for Manufacturability

  • Use a range of tools to prepare for manufacturability including undercut display, fix draft, parting line tools, shelling, and split joint design. Import solid geometry from other CAD systems for reference and comparison.

Mold Design

  • Complete mold design tools work directly in the Freeform Plus environment from your design. With these tools you can split meshes, offset curve segments, define mold inserts, create parting surfaces and trim them, and preview and create core and cavity inserts.

3D printability analysis and Integration

  • 3D printing analysis tools and integration with 3DSPRINT enable the creation of carefully tested parts for printing, plus access to 3D printing queues and print fleet management.

Wrap for Geomagic Freeform Plus

  • Refine and perfect surfaced 3D model data with the additional Wrap for Geomagic Freeform. This additional software application allows you to create perfect, surfaced 3D data from your Freeform models for rapid downstream use.

Freeform Viewer

  • The stand-alone Freeform Viewer will display clay models Geomagic Freeform. Simple visualization, zoom, rotate, pan, measure and cutaway tools allow others to see a model without having to be proficient in the software.
