May 6, 2014 - Acting as integrated bridge, VXmodel 3D scan data post-treatment software module enables users to finalize 3D scan data for direct use in any CAD or 3D printing software. Only features necessary to complement CAD software are included. Full integration with VXelements eliminates need for design professionals to open, learn, and use third-party software for most applications. Among others, included tools cover alignment, geometrical entities and cross-sections, and mesh editing.

VXmodel Provides Simplest and Fastest Path from 3D Scans to CAD And Additive Manufacturing Workflows

Lévis, QC, Canada – Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, today announced the launch of VXmodel, its 3D scan data post-treatment software module.  VXmodel enables users to finalize 3D scan data to use directly in any CAD or 3D printing software.

VXmodel is simple, yet powerful. It includes only the features necessary to complement CAD software. Because it is fully integrated with VXelements, Creaform’s 3D software platform, it eliminates the need for design professionals to open, learn and use third-party software for most applications. With VXmodel acting as an integrated bridge, users have all the tools they need to prepare their 3D-Scan files for CAD or 3D-print solutions in one easy-to-master, intuitive application.

Within VXelements, VXmodel offers several advantages:
• Alignment: Use VXmodel’s tool to constrain 3D scans using datums/entities so that users can start their design processes on a strong foundation.
• Geometrical entities and cross-sections: VXmodel’s highly flexible and user-friendly interface lets users quickly segment a mesh into all the primitive entities, cross-sections and surfaces required to complete the final CAD design.
• Mesh improvement: VXmodel enables users to improve 3D scan meshes and make them more suitable for their CAD or 3D printing processes. A variety of sophisticated tools are available to ensure users have the perfect files before they begin their reverse engineering or 3D printing.
• Mesh editing: VXmodel helps to modify the 3D scan mesh, making it watertight and quickly generating print-ready files.

At the same time as the VXmodel release, Creaform launched the revolutionary new HandySCAN 3D laser scanner, which has been completely re-engineered for optimum speed, accuracy and portability. In addition, Creaform released and two new versions of the Go!SCAN 3D white-light scanner, which provide unmatched fast and reliable 3D measurements, while offering the easiest portable 3D scanning experience on the market.
