It's hands down the best 3D reverse engineering software – but there's always room for improvement.

To help you handle any product design challenge thrown your way, we've picked up the pace of Geomagic Design X updates with a quarterly release cycle. The new version, Design 2024.1 is now available for you to download and try out.  

Here are the new feature highlights:

Modeling Wizards

  • Generate Constraints: Reduce modeling time by generating constraints in the Wizards workflow.
  • Robust Results for Surface Cut: Get robust results from the Revolution Wizard with an extended sketch profile that ensures the creation of the Revolution feature.
  • Accuracy Analyzer & Result Operator:
    • Generate higher-quality primitives by checking the accuracy when using Solid & Surface Primitives Wizard.
    • Facilitate modeling workflow by executing Boolean Operations when generating Solid & Surface Primitives.
  • UI/UX & More Robust Results:
    • Improved display of the sketch to easily view real-time changes
    • Quite a few reliability issues were addressed in Extrusion & Revolution Wizards to yield better results.

Generating constraints

Generating constraints in the Wizards workflow


  • Improved Results in Extract Specific Entities
  • Robust Constraints Generation & Results:
    • Tangent constraints remained even when not chosen.
    • Tangent, Horizontal, and Vertical constraints were not applied properly in some cases.
    • Unintended sketches not aligned with the selected mesh sketch were created in some scenarios.
  • UI/UX Improvements:
    • Constraint options expanded by default for better user awareness.
    • Remove undesired results from Auto-Sketch results generated for the entire mesh sketch.

Extract Specific in Design X 2024

Design X 2024.1 brings better results in Extract Specific Entities


You can now transfer a model to SolidWorks versions 2006 to 2024, Inventor versions 2010 to 2024, Creo up to version 9.0, NX versions 8 to 1953 and AutoCAD versions 2010 - 2011.

PMT Plugin

Reduce workflow time by directly probing into Geomagic Design X.
