Inspection software updated
3D Systems’ Geomagic Control X 2018 features a new user interface that provides a fast path to inspection results.
Designed and created by the people who invented 3D printing and modern 3D scan data processing and inspection, Geomagic Control X 2018 builds upon its foundation to meet the demands of aerospace and automotive manufacturers.
Offering the same easy-to-use tools as the previous version of the platform, Geomagic Control X 2018’s scanner-agnostic platform provides integrated capabilities including simplified and automated airfoil analysis, surface-analysis tools to instantly identify corrosion and denting, and comparative analysis tools.
Customers are now able to import legacy files from Geomagic Control 2015, allowing for improved support for existing customers and their projects.
Geomagic Control X 2018 provides customers with capabilities such as:
• Up to 50% increase in efficiency path to inspection results – Reducing calculation time by up to 50%, customers see faster analysis during their common inspection workflows. Geomagic Control X 2018 enables users to import, align, and compare faster. Model-based geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) assignment workflows, coupled with fast scan-pair searching, cut model setup and evaluation times.
• Greater performance in scan processing and evaluation – Updated platform architecture enables customers to more efficiently create inspection models as well as scan, evaluate, and communicate inspection results with newly customizable and intuitive reports.
• Automation and traceability – Geomagic Control X 2018’s automatic scan-pair searching operates in the background during inspection. This pairing map maintains the pair associations, allowing users to view, edit, and report – providing maximum understanding of the connection between measurement and reference models. Process automation reduces setup time.
• Unique measurement UX for portable probing devices –Live Inspect measurement is designed with natural interaction efficiency and operator comfort in mind. New features make it easier for the operator to follow guidance and instructions to complete a preplanned inspection job.
Current Geomagic Control X customers, under software maintenance, will receive an in-app notification to automatically update the platform.
