Seoul, South Korea - April 28, 2009, INUS Technology, Inc.(www.rapidform.com), the developer of Rapidform® 3D scanning software, announced that it will demonstrate the latest Rapidform innovations in 3D scanning software at CONTROL 2009 from MAY 5TH to 8TH in Stuttgart Exhibition Center, Germany. The INUS booth will be located at Hall 7 / NO.7333. INUS Technology continues its campaign to offer point processing with seamless CAD-compatibility. INUS Technology will present the only 3rd Generation (3G) reverse engineering software, XOR/Redesign™, taking scan data into CAD in less time and with higher, provable accuracy. For inspection, Rapidform will highlight the newly released XOV/Verifier™, the fully CAD compatible inspection tool, supporting scanning and probing, with full GD&T capabilities. Also on display is InspectWorks™, INUS' Solid Works plug-in). INUS will showcase Rapidform XOS/Scan™, the 2G verbatim modeler, and Rapidform Explorer™ the new viewer for all your 3D data. INUS invites all comers to bring their reverse engineering and inspection questions, and to explore Rapidform's solutions for your scanning needs.
Calvin J. Hur, senior vice president of marketing & global sales said, "In the year since the last Control exposition, we have made significant improvements to each of the Rapidform XO products. Previously, Rapidform was competitive with the status quo, but with the new functionality and automation, Rapidform XOR2, XOS2 and XOV2 have changed the way that 3D scanning software works for our customers, and accelerated the adoption of scanning for inspection and modeling." He continued, "Visitors to Control2009 will see for themselves the productivity gains they will enjoy by using the Rapidform innovations we'll be showcasing."
Following our main products and their key features will be demonstrated:
- Rapidform XOR/Redesign™ is the first 3G software solution
that allows direct parametric, solid modeling from 3D scan data. Rapidform XOR makes the idealized CAD models, showing the designers original intent, while removing the imperfections of field worn parts or noisy scan data. XOR creates these models in 1/3 the time of 2G methods, by removing the unnecessary intermediate steps of mesh modeling and NURBS surface modeling. The learning curve is shorter too; using CAD constructs and a user interface that are instantly familiar to CAD users. XOR embodies its' tag line "Do It Once, Do it Right".
- Rapidform XOV/Verifier™ is the ideal solution for inspecting parts with a 3D scanner.
It borrows powerful concepts from the CAD world: each inspection process generates a history tree describing the sequence though which subsequent data sets will be tested, so the test designer can easily modify the test process, and the operator can execute the inspection process with single data set, on line, or in batch mode. XOV imports the GD&T information directly from the CAD source for fewer data entry and interpretation errors.
- Rapidform XOS/Scan™ is Rapidform's 2G modeler,
offering the shortest path from scan to mesh to surface models, with the most automation and the fewest button clicks. XOS' favorable price point means it is the best value for verbatim modeling for applications where the data is not destined for use in the CAD environment, like medical, artistic, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and direct copying via machining or rapid prototyping.
- Rapidform.dll™ is the world's first point processing SDK(Software Development Kit)
for 3D application developers. It provides core functionality that enables developers of Rapidform.dll-based products to rapidly deploy point, mesh and surfacing functions into their products.
- InspectWorks™ is the world's first third-party SolidWorks add-in for quick,
inspection from 3D scan data. With InspectWorks, a design engineer can quickly check the part using a 3D scanner to get a 1st article verification of the part's dimensions, enabling the design engineer to use the tolerances defined in SolidWorks' "DimExpert" to execute the inspection plan and catch dimensional problems in early design stage.
- Rapidform Explorer™ is free standalone software for collaboration involving
3D data. With Rapidform EXPLORER, you can view, communicate and share inspection reports, as well as dense point clouds, polygonal meshes, curve, surface and solid models. Explorer offers instant measuring, markup, inspection analysis and collaboration. About INUS Technology Inc.
