Geomagic Qualify 2013 and Geomagic Qualify Probe 2013

Geomagic Qualify 2013 expands upon an already powerful platform with more comprehensive, robust and accurate 3D metrology features and automation tools, which can be used with both scan and probe data. Geomagic Qualify Probe 2013 incorporates Geomagic Qualify 2013’s rich toolset in a probing-only measuring environment.

The 2013 releases include deeper platform access and the ability for users to write custom functionality – like inspection protocols, constrained alignments, CAD model access and reporting – using Python scripting. Enhanced Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) probing and measurement functions include CAD-less definition of nominal geometry, improved prompts to probe test data, and a more detailed Measure Features command that delivers measured and nominal features plus deviations. The products now have more streamlined workflows designed to help customers improve inspection, produce better products, and lower operating and manufacturing costs.

In addition, the Geomagic Qualify products have been enhanced to deliver more intuitive interactivity between the engineer and the software, especially in the QuickFeature and QuickProbe toolsets. These new features make it even easier to quickly measure the size of manufactured parts while performing automated inspection and measurement in near real time on the manufacturing shop floor.

Geomagic Studio 2013

Geomagic Studio, the industry’s most advanced solution for automated point cloud cleanup, mesh repair and patch functions, helps designers, engineers and manufacturers produce highly accurate 3D polygonal models from scan data. The new version of Geomagic Studio allows users to save time with increased automation, and it includes Python scripting and a command line-driven version of the software, which allows customers to create and execute customized macros and scripts without a graphical user interface, allowing commands to run faster and use less memory.

Geomagic Studio 2013 also includes the ability to capture design intent from any shape for history-based CAD platforms, an easy-to-learn interface for streamlined functionality and fast operations, and a wide array of hardware and software integration capabilities.

“Our 3D museum work at the Idaho Virtualization Lab would not be possible without Geomagic Studio at the core of our activities," reported Herbert Maschner, director. “Geomagic is a critical part of our Democratization of Science Project as we put the Idaho Museum of Natural History’s collections online. Using Geomagic, 3D models of mammal bones, complete skeletons, fossils and artifacts are accurately and quickly created from 3D scans, and these 3D models are accessed and used by thousands of students and scholars worldwide for education and research.”

Geomagic Wrap 2013

Geomagic Wrap incorporates many of Geomagic Studio 2013’s new automation and customization features, which allow artists, archeologists, designers and filmmakers, among others, to create perfect 3D models from physical objects. With its 2013 release, Geomagic Wrap now also includes exact surfacing, using the powerful one-button AutoSurface tools. Additional new features include Repair Patches, Construct Grids and Fit Surfaces functions, and more automated, intelligent tools for visualizing and transforming point clouds into usable 3D models. For prototyping, analysis, archiving, design, visual effects and more, Geomagic Wrap is a cost-effective, user-friendly way to quickly incorporate 3D scanning into a variety of workflows.

“In a world that is increasingly moving to digital reality, where physical objects become digital and digital objects become physical, manufacturers need innovative scanning and inspection tools that simplify and automate these processes,” said Kevin Scofield, Geomagic’s senior product manager. “As manufacturers look to scanning and inspection as a way to get products to market faster and drive competitive advantage, Geomagic’s 2013 products are at the forefront of usability, customization, automation and highly accurate results.”

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
