Why Geomagic Design X

  • Speed: Improve your product development, accelerate time to market and achieve longer product life cycles.
  • Flexibility: Work seamlessly with any CAD software and create the right model for every project with complete toolsets for solids, surfaces, and meshes.
  • Reliability: The only software that combines scan processing, CAD and real-time feedback to produce highly reliable results for your complex designs.
  • Simplicity: It works just like your CAD software, you will learn to use it on the fly.


What is Geomagic Design X?

Geomagic® Design X™ creates CAD models from 3D scans faster, more accurately and reliably than any other reverse-engineering software, enabling you to create new business value out of existing products.

  • Processes large scan data sets with millions of points faster than any other reverse-engineering software.
  • Creates complex hybrid 3D models for solid, surface, and mesh.
  • Connects directly to your CAD environment and creates native files to accurately represent a scanned object.
  • Rapidly creates solids or surfaces just like in CAD.
  • Transfers 3D parametric models with full design history directly to any popular CAD software.


What can you do with Geomagic Design X?

Geomagic Design X converts 3D scan data into high-quality, feature-based CAD models. The software combines automatic and guided solid model extraction in a unique way while being incredibly accurate. On top of this it offers you exact surface fitting to organic 3D scans; mesh editing; and point-cloud processing.

  • Expand your design capabilities.
  • Enhance your CAD environment.
  • Accelerate your time to market.
  • Leverage existing assets.
  • Reduce costs.
  • Manage the impossible.


Scan virtually anything and create producible designs.

  • Rebuild CAD data for broken tools and molds.
  • Recreate lost CAD data for parts and molds.
  • Design custom products.
  • Convert physical parts into CAD for new product designs.
  • Make existing parts fit with new parts.

Geomagic Design X seamlessly supports all major scanners and portable CRMs.

Use Geomagic Design X with Geomagic Control X™ and Geomagic Wrap® for an end-to-end, scan-based design and inspection package.


Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS

Geomagic® for SOLIDWORKS is a reverse engineering software toolset that plugs directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment, giving you advanced capabilities to make tools, point clouds, and polygons more usable in your design process. You can import data or scan directly in SOLIDWORKS and use the feature extraction wizards to extract CAD sketches, surfaces, and solids.

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS acts as a bridge between physical parts and your CAD-to-SOLIDWORKS environment. It delivers the ability to seamlessly 3D scan directly into SOLIDWORKS and create solid models using integrated, industry-proven toolsets for accurate design outcomes.

Use Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS with Geomagic Control X™ inspection and metrology software and Geomagic Wrap® 3D scanning software for a complete, scan-based design and inspection package.

What's New in Geomagic Design X?

Geomagic Design X 2022 delivers new, enhanced features to streamline reverse engineering workflows, improve part design and quality, and increase productivity, enabling you to:

  • Continue downstream workflows in the CAD package of your choice after transferring the design along with the feature tree from Design X to the CAD package.
  • Achieve the desired part design in less time by using new and improved sketch tools.
  • Increase productivity by scanning directly inside Design X to avoid a disjointed workflow.
  • Achieve the intended part design by utilizing advanced modeling options.
  • Increase productivity of downstream operations such as Alignment and Modeling with improved quality and faster performance of region segmentation for a mesh tessellated from CAD.
