VXmodel provides simple, yet efficient tools to prepare the 3D scan mesh for reverse engineering or 3D printing.

  • Clean mesh
  • Fill holes
  • Merge meshes
  • Decimate mesh
  • Make mesh watertight

3D scans must be aligned to the coordinate system before exporting, which is a simple but crucial finalization step. The VXmodel alignment tool is highly flexible and straightforward.

  • Entity-based alignment
  • Best fit alignment

Product development + Reverse engineering

VXmodel only provides the needed tools and features to integrate 3D scan data into your favorite CAD software, where all design and modeling capabilities are already available. With its intuitive functions, you can easily extract the required information from the mesh and transfer it to the CAD platform in order to generate the CAD entities for your 3D modeling.

VXmodel allows you to easily generate NURBS surfaces for characterizing freeform regions. Geometric entities can be easily extracted from the mesh to complete the design in any CAD software.

  • Auto surface
  • Manual surface
  • 2D/3D entities
  • Curves
  • Cross-sections

With VXmodel, you can easily export 3D data to any CAD platform using standard formats (.iges, .setp, .dxf). With a simple right-click, geometric entities can be transferred directly to the following CAD software:

  • Autodesk Inventor
  • Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Solid Edge
