What's New in Freeform 2016
Design with a Different Approach
Break through the limitations of traditional CAD design and bring your visions to reality. Geomagic Freeform offers a comprehensive design and sculpting toolset allowing you to sculpt, detail and deform virtual clay models into any form you desire. Geomagic Freeform Plus takes these toolsets into advanced manufacturing design including automatic conversion of digital clay and polygons to NURBS surfaces, mold and die design, shelling, draft analysis, parting line and surface creation tools for complex organic shapes.
Design Anything with Built-in Precision
Geomagic Freeform picks up where traditional CAD software stops. This hybrid modeling system has the flexibility and benefits of many different modeling paradigms incorporating Surfaces, Solids, Mesh, SubD, and Clay. Make smooth surfaces and razor sharp edges with SubD, model precisely defined CAD shapes with NURBS and Solids or deform and emboss shapes with Clay.
Add Organic Design to Traditional CAD
Geomagic Freeform 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.
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
Enjoy Instant 3D Printability
With Freeform’s 3D Printability checking tools, you can also catch potential design flaws early on, streamlining your design to production process. You can harness Freeform’s patented voxel technology to assure that designs are topologically error free, and cut the need for expensive geometry analysis and repair software.
