Reverse Engineering with Geomagic Design X

Geomagic Design X, the industry's most comprehensive reverse engineering software, combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing so you can create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with your existing CAD software.

Broaden Your Design Capabilities
Instead of starting from a blank screen, start from data created by the real world. Geomagic Design X is the easiest way to create editable, feature-based CAD models from a 3D scanner and integrate them into your existing engineering design workflow.

Leverage Existing Assets
Many designs are inspired by another. Easily scan an object or model into your CAD system. Learn from it. Reuse it. Improve on it. Easily rebuild your old parts into current CAD data, create drawings and production designs.

Accelerate Time to Market
Shave days or weeks from product idea to finished design. Scan prototypes, existing parts, tooling or related objects, and create designs in a fraction of the time it would take to manually measure and create CAD models from scratch.

Do the Impossible
Create products that cannot be designed without reverse engineering, customized parts that require a perfect fit with the human body. Create components that integrate perfectly with existing products. Recreate complex geometry that cannot be measured any other way.

Enhance Your CAD Environment
Seamlessly add 3D scanning into your regular design process so you can do more and work faster. Geomagic Design X complements your entire design ecosystem, with native output to SOLIDWORKS®, Siemens NX®, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor®, PTC Creo® and Pro/ENGINEER®.

Reduce Costs
Save significant money and time when modeling as-built and as designed parts. Deform an existing CAD model to fit your 3D Scans. Reduce tool iteration costs by using actual part geometry to correct your CAD and elimination part springback problems. Reduce costly errors related to poor fit with other components. 

Reverse Engineering with Geomagic Design

The Fastest Path from 3D Scans to Your CAD Software

Works seamlessly with your existing CAD
Geomagic Design X connects directly to popular CAD software, including SOLIDWORKS®, Siemens NX®, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor® and PTC Creo®. Using unique LiveTransfer technology, Design X transfers complete models, including feature trees, so you can quickly create solid and surface models from 3D scans.

Heavy-duty capabilities for demanding projects
Geomagic Design X’s extensive toolset combines CAD tools, industry leading scan processing tools, and all the firepower you need to take on the most challenging projects. It handles billions of scan points and has a complete host of features to fix data issues, letting you skip scan cleanup and begin creating CAD models immediately.

Powerful and Flexible
Geomagic Design X is purpose-built for converting 3D scan data into high-quality feature-based CAD models. It does what no other software can with its combination of automatic and guided solid model extraction, incredibly accurate exact surface fitting to organic 3D scans, mesh editing and point cloud processing. Now, you can scan virtually anything and create manufacturing-ready designs.

Works like your CAD software
If you can design in CAD, you can start using Geomagic Design X right away. Its fully-renewed user interface and workflow tools make it easier than ever before to quickly and accurately create as-designed and as-built 3D CAD and model data.
