Creaform launches new version of its 3D software, VXelementsClick image to enlarge

Creaform has launched the latest version of its 3D software platform, VXelements and suite of applications bringing a more comprehensive experience for users with unmatched hardware to software synergy for reverse engineering, rapid prototyping and dimensional inspection.

Some of the key additions in both modules include:

VXinspect – Dimensional inspection software module

  • Optical probing with MaxSHOT 3D: Users can extract entities automatically from targets and combine scan with optical probing data to get more complete inspection results. Even better, it’s possible to get a colormap from best-fit photogrammetry model to CAD files in a simple mouse click.
  • Faster inspection from scan data: With the VXelements improved workflow, alignment methods for enabling surface best-fit constrains and new interactivity in its 3D viewer for feature creation, users have the tools to work faster and smarter.

VXmodel – Scan-to-CAD software module

  • Interoperability with SolidEdge: With a single click, users can now transfer data from VXmodel directly to leading third-party software, including SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Inventor and now SolidEdge, providing even more flexibility and integration into user workflows than before.
  • Alignment optimization: Enables simplified management of its alignment process for projects with multiple STL files.

“The VXelements algorithms seamlessly simplify metrology for users from different levels of expertise so they can access a wide range of powerful new features to improve productivity, time-to-market and operating costs,” explains Daniel Brown, product management director at Creaform. “New software capabilities and improvements made to the VXinspect and VXmodel modules address the industry’s needs for fast highly accurate results—in both design and inspection workflows. We are excited to put more power, as well as user-friendly photogrammetry capabilities, into the users’ hands so they can be confident their results meet their industries’ strict requirements.”
