3D Systems design tool for portable scanner

Using Go!MODEL and Go!SCAN 3D together allows users to capture physical objects and directly model high quality renderings and designs suitable for 3D printing.

Go!MODEL is powered by 3D Systems’ Rapidform platform and has professional mesh editing capabilities with automatic NURBS surfacing utility, including surfaces in applications such as CAD and CAM that cannot handle high-definition meshes. Other functionality is specifically tailored for use with Creaform’s Go!SCAN 3D.

“Go!MODEL extends the utility and functionality of VXelements, our proprietary data acquisition software, and helps our Go!SCAN 3D users get more out of their scanned data,” said Daniel Brown, product manager at Creaform. “Go!MODEL’s mesh optimization and NURBS surfacing capabilities are particularly compelling.”

Tom Charron, senior director marketing and product management, rapidform products, 3D Systems, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to enhance the functionality and utility of the popular Creaform Go!SCAN 3D portable scanner with Go!MODEL. Powered by our Rapidform platform, Go!MODEL is affordable and packs an unprecedented user experience with professional-grade data processing and modelling.”
