Thor3D has announced a partnership with nPowerSoftware, the developer of Cyborg 3D MeshToCAD. The bundle is aimed at specialists, who need a quick conversion from mesh to CAD of organic forms.
Freeform meshes are known to be time-consuming when it comes to reverse-engineering. While engineering parts are easily described by primitives, freeform shapes are distinct for having a lot of smooth edges between individual surface elements and require slightly different algorithms. Cyborg enables the users to convert into CAD sculpted meshes and scanned meshes.
The solution is ideally suited for automotive industry, orthopedics and prosthetics, industrial design. Cyborg 3D MeshtoCAD is compatible with well-known CAD-programs including SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Rhinoceros ad Autodesk Inventor.
Calibry is a hand-held 3D scanner meant to capture medium and large objects. It has a built-in touchscreen for ease-of-use during scanning and weighs a mere 700gm (1.5lbs). Importantly, Calibry can capture historically-difficult objects to scan such as sharp edges and black/shiny items. It also has a built-in texture camera (2.3MP) and can collect up to 3M points per second guaranteeing users a fast, professional, accurate result (accuracy – up to 0.1mm; resolution – up to 0.3mm) at an affordable price.
