SolidWorks World is always a hyperactive event and the 2012 event in San Diego, CA is no exception. Geomagic is exhibiting and enjoying the crowds of engineers stopping by to see scanning by Hexagon Metrology into Geomagic Studio and Geomagic Qualify.
In fact, many of the attendees stop to gaze at the Hexagon Romer SI scanner on the booth. The Romer arm with laser scanner head offers very lightweight use for engineers, high accuracy and fast scanning. The point cloud data is loaded directly into Geomagic software for fast creation of 3D data or inspection using easy-to-use workflows and fast results. Photo above: the Hexagon scanner in use at SolidWorks World. The arm can also be adapted for probing uses with Geomagic Qualify and Qualify Probe. Once data is created in Geomagic, it can be transferred parametrically into SolidWorks 2011 and 2012 for further design and engineering.
