A major step forward in metrology software
By Joel Pollet
The new Geomagic Control X inspection product from 3D Systems offers a computer-aided design (CAD)-like interface and an improved workflow for Geomagic Control users. By including extended product manufacturing information support, users of popular CAD systems can now seamlessly transfer critical inspection information, such as datum features, directly from their CAD product to Control X without the need to re-create it from scratch.
By having all of the visibility and filtering tools in easy-to-access toolbars, and with a set of measuring tools always available, the user can easily manipulate the visibility of all screen controls and graphics, take quick measurements, and check critical areas of a design with minimal mouse clicks. Being able to toggle visibility of any of the controls in the enhanced Model Manager using a single click is a great time-saver.
