Geomagic Rolls Out Freeform 2013 [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Geomagic, a company providing 3D technology for digital reality, released its newest version of Geomagic Freeform 3D modeling software.
In a release, the Company noted that Geomagic Freeform is a touch- enabled solution that facilitates fast 3D modeling of highly detailed, organic shapes; these shapes can then be combined with geometric shapes for prototyping or manufacturing. In combination with Geomagic's Sensable Phantom haptic 3D input devices, Geomagic Freeform software creates a modeling environment in which users can navigate in 3D and design with virtual clay.
"The Geomagic Freeform 2013 product family is the only 3D modeling solution to integrate voxels, polygons, SubD and NURBS," said Kevin Atkins, senior product manager for Geomagic Freeform. "This means designers can be more productive in a single product, cutting out the non-productive time of importing and exporting to other packages, when the designer could be modeling. Plus, 2013 removes the frustration of learning different UIs and trying to create in only one representation - for example, NURBS designs that are better created in another representation, like voxels. Combined with the other user-driven new features, version 2013 streamlines workflows and ultimately allows our customers to get more creative and bring better products to market faster, which is really what it's all about."
The 2013 software, for both Geomagic Freeform and Geomagic Freeform Plus configurations, is currently shipping on new systems and is available to customers with current maintenance contracts.
The Company said NURBS features are only available in the Geomagic Freeform Plus 3D modeling solution.
