Geomagic FreeForm

Geomagic Sculpt

Touch. Sculpt. Realize.

Geomagic Sculpt is a simple, fast yet sophisticated precision voxel 3D sculpting and modeling software solution. Create organic designs and edit and transform existing 3D data with sculpting, shaping and detailing tools not found in traditional CAD software. Get the sensation of clay modeling with the benefits of digital design.

Properties

  • Virtual Clay Modeling

Create exactly what you want. With Sculpt you can harness the power of virtual clay to easily create exquisitely complex and organic forms. Use real world sculpting concepts in a digital environment with the power of tug, ridge, emboss and deform just like real clay modeling. Sculpt is incredibly intuitive; you can use a traditional mouse or feel your design when you use a Geomagic Touch™ haptic stylus.

  • Incredible Detailing Tools

Fine tune the smallest elements and make products stand out. Sculpt lets you create textures of any complexity in 3D virtual clay. Use embossing tools to create design flourishes, which are often impossible in CAD. Simply import any image and go. The texture you see is the texture you get when 3D printing the model.

  • Add the Sense of Touch to Your Digital World

3D Systems haptic devices provide true three-dimensional navigation and force feedback integrating a sense of touch into the Geomagic Sculpt 3D modeling systems as well as research and commercial applications. The devices use motors to create forces that push back on the user’s hand to simulate touch and interaction with virtual objects. But if you don’t have a haptic device, Geomagic Sculpt will work just as well with a mouse.

  • 3D Print-Ready

You can cut the guesswork, because Geomagic Sculpt produces 3D-printable files every time. No more wondering if your design is solid or watertight. Sculpt will even check for common printability issues, like feature size, undercuts, downward facing surfaces and printer volume and flag them so you can make changes before you print.

Geomagic Freeform

Geomagic Freeform enables you to solve complex design and manufacturing challenges. The industry’s most comprehensive organic 3D engineering tools combine touch-based 3D sculpting, surfacing, design intent modeling, 3D scan processing, CAD interoperability and mold making. Get the sensation of clay modeling with the benefits of digital design.

Properties

  • 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.

  • Design Anything with Built-in Precision

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
