Thousands of people use 3D Systems Geomagic (formerly Rapidform) to unlock the power of 3D scanning every day. Whether you’re new to 3D scanning or an experienced user, 3D Systems Geomagic’s reverse engineering, inspection and scan data processing tools ensure you get the most out of your 3D scanner.
Geomagic Design X, the industry's most comprehensive reverse engineering software, combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing so you can create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with your existing CAD software.
Broaden Your Design Capabilities
Instead of starting from a blank screen, start from the real world. Goemagic Design X is the easiest way to create editable, feature-based CAD models from a 3D scanner and integrate them into your existing engineering design workflow.
Reuse existing designs wihtout having to manually update old drawings or painstakingly measure and reubild a model in CAD. Reduce costly errors related to poor fit with other components.
Works Like Your CAD Software
Geomagic Design X is easy to learn and use. In fact, if you can design in CAD, you can start using Geomagic Design X right away. It uses familiar history-based modeling tools found in all major CAD products, along with automated feature extraction from scan data.
Geomagic Design X makes 3D scan data more useful
All 3D scanners create point clouds or meshes, which aren’t that useful for most design needs. Geomagic Design X is purpose-built to create manufacturing-ready CAD models directly from scan data.
The fastest way to getfrom raw scans to real CAD models
There is simply no faster way to get from unprocessed 3D scans to complete, feature-based solid models. Design X’s redesign tools save hours or days of work compared to reverse engineering using regular CAD software. Design X works with your CAD software, giving you the benefits of dedicated scanning software and maintaining compatibility with your existing design environment.
Easy to learn and use because it works like your CAD software
If you can design in CAD, you can start using Design X right away. It uses familiar tools for solid modeling, and skips the old reverse engineering workflows involving painstaking polygon editing and surface generation.
Powerful and flexible
People are doing amazing things with Geomagic every day. Since Design X is built on a complete CAD kernel (Parasolid), it gives you the flexibility to make real CAD models the way you want. Everything you need is contained in one application, without the need to flip back and forth between apps. It works with every 3D scanner, and makes native, feature-based models for every major CAD application.

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.
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.
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.
