Modelling Without Limitations for Manufacturing
Geomagic Freeform is a multi-purpose design platform for creating complex, sculptural, production-ready 3D models for 3D printing, or mould and die manufacturing.
Design the Impossible
Geomagic Freeform picks up where your traditional CAD system stops. Now you can design like never before – sculpting beautiful, detailed forms – and still be able to work within established engineering design workflows. With Freeform you’re not constrained by anything except your imagination.
Manufacture Directly From Your Designs
Geomagic Freeform Plus’ specialized features allow you to identify and fix potential manufacturing issues early in the design process. You can retain artistic control while avoiding production surprises and costly mistakes. Freeform models go smoothly into your 3D printing, or mould and die manufacturing workflow.
Reduce Reliance on Multiple CAD and Design Tools
Geomagic Freeform is unique in its ability to handle voxels, polygons, subdivision and NURBS solids and surfaces in one design environment. This allows you to use the right representation for the right job, giving you more choices and enabling incredibly fast, flexible workflows. Freeform’s robust fi le import and export formats allow you to easily combine sculpted designs with traditional CAD models.
Marry Mechanical Design with Freeform Design
You can take advantage of both CAD and Freeform design with Geomagic Designer Packages, which combine Geomagic Design, a full-featured mechanical CAD software, with Geomagic Freeform. Design complete assemblies, perform motion simulation, generate beautiful renderings, and output complete engineering drawings.
Model for Manufacturing
Geomagic Freeform provides the tools you need to create manufacturable designs and mould inserts, such as draft analysis, fixing tools, no-fail shelling, thickness analysis, and complex parting surface development. When your designs are complete, Freeform delivers watertight models that are ready for 3D printing, CNC machining, moulding and other production workflows.
Powerful and Flexible Tools
Use voxel modelling to sculpt, detail and deform virtual clay models into any form you desire. Or use the power of SubD and NURBS modelling to create more constructed, smooth forms. Or mix and match between voxels, SubD, polygons and NURBS as desired. Add instant, custom 3D textures for a perfect finish, and output to 3D printing or another CAD/CAM system.
Design at Your Fingertips, Literally
For faster model creation with ultimate freedom of expression, Freeform uses the Geomagic Touch family of haptic devices. With force feedback to deliver a real touch sensation, and true six-degree-of-freedom input, you use the natural hand movements you are already familiar with. This more intuitive way of interacting with your 3D models gives you a dramatically reduced learning curve. Freeform gives you all the speed and sensation of hand sculpting with the benefits of a digital workflow.
Design within a 3D Work"
Robust interoperability tools handle import and export of neutral 3D file formats (STL, OBJ, PLY, VRML); IGES curves; and Parasolid, IGES and STEP solids. With this kind of freedom, it’s easy to seamlessly exchange and integrate 3D design data from various sources.
