3D Systems’ Geomagic Control X 2018 is a manufacturing software solution designed for the aerospace and automotive manufacturers. This 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, the company says. Legacy files from Geomagic Control 2015 can also be imported. 

The software solution provides up to 50 percent increase in efficiency path to inspection results. According to the company, this reduces calculation time by up to 50 percent and enables users to import, align, and compare. In addition, model-based geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) assignment workflows, coupled with scan-pair searching, cut model setup and evaluation times by more than 50 percent, the company says.

The software solution enables customers to create inspection models as well as scan, evaluate, and communicate inspection results with customizable and intuitive reports. Automatic scan-pair searching also operates in the background during inspection. This pairing map maintains the pair associations, allowing users to view, edit, and report, thus providing understanding of the connection between measurement and reference models. In addition, process automation reduces setup time significantly over industry competitors, the company says.
