In this week's 2 Minute Tuesday, we will examine the Deviation Location Tool in Geomagic Control X. This tool creates a Best Fit Surface over an area of interest and enables the user to analyze isolated areas on a part for wear, dents, bumps, corrosion, etc.
In this week's 2 Minute Tuesday, we will take a look at how you can use the Plot Comparison tool in Control X to analyze the thickness, curvature, and angle of mesh data at any point on the mesh.
In this week's 2 Minute Tuesday, we will take a look at the Comparison Point Analysis tool which enables a Control X user to click arbitrary or specific point locations on the Reference CAD model and compare them to the corresponding point mapped to the Measured mesh model.

OQTON Inc., formally 3D Systems, will be introducing a subscription-based, software license rental model to complement its perpetual license sales model. Starting in 2023, Geomagic Design X, Control X Professional and Geomagic for Solidworks’ customers will have the option of “renting” these products on an annual basis. The subscription model will ensure users a full year of software updates and bug fixes as well as technical support. The subscription model will be available to both [...]
Control X – 2D Twist Analysis In this week’s 2 Minute Tuesday, we will examine the 2D Twist Analysis tool in Control X which analyzes the deviation of the twist angle between section profiles of the Reference and Measured Data.
Performing 2D Twist Angle Analysis in Control X In this edition of our Metrology Minute, we are going to discuss the 2D Twist Analysis tool in Control X. It analyzes the deviation of twist angle between section profiles of the Reference and Measured data. Let’s use the turbine scan, aligned to the nominal CAD model shown below as an example. You would start with a pre-aligned model of Measured to Reference data. If you want [...]
Tuccamirgan's Pipe of Peace: Scanned and 3D Printed In this week’s 2 Minute Tuesday, we will take a look at how 3D Scanning, Scan Processing, and 3D Printing technology can be used to intricately recreate important artifacts. In this case, we were granted the privilege of recreating Chief Tuccamirgan of the Wickcheoche tribe’s peace pipe that was provided by the Hunterdon County Historical Society.
Solidworks & Control X — Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) In this week's 2 Minute Tuesday, we will examine how a Product Manufacturing Information (or PMI) model, generated in Solidworks, may be used to automate the inspection process in Control X. PMI is a fairly new tool that enables manufacturing information to remain with CAD models through downstream applications.
