Geomagic Control X 2018 Drives Manufacturing Productivity and Efficiency

3D Systems has announced the availability of  Geomagic Control X 2018 inspection software which addresses unique requirements for the aerospace and automotive industries, at the EMO exhibition in Hanover, Germany. a leading inspection software.

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 also provides integrated capabilities including simplified and automated airfoil analysis, surface-analysis tools to instantly identify corrosion and denting, and comparative analysis tools.

Customers will be able to import legacy files from Geomagic Control 2015, allowing for support for existing customers and their projects. Geomagic Control X 2018 provides enhanced capabilities including:

Up to 50% increase in efficiency path to inspection results:

Reducing calculation time by up to 50 percent, customers will see faster analysis during their common inspection workflows. Geomagic Control X 2018 is claimed to import, align, and compare faster than any other inspection software on the market.  In addition, model-based Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) assignment workflows, coupled with fast scan-pair searching, cut model setup and evaluation times by more than 50 percent versus leading competitors.

Greater performance in scan processing and evaluation:

Taking advantage of an updated platform architecture, Geomagic Control X 2018 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. In addition, process automation reduces setup time significantly over industry competitors.

Unique measurement UX for portable probing devices:

The engineers behind Geomagic Control X believe Live Inspect is the only measurement experience 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 pre-planned inspection job.

Current Geomagic Control X customers, under software maintenance, will receive an in-app notification to automatically update the platform.
