A modern 3D reverse engineering software for converting 3D scan meshes into CAD models, QUICKSURFACE is the ultimate solution for Reverse Engineering compatible with any 3D Scanner exporting STL, OBJ and PTY meshes or PTX point clouds. It's a hybrid parametric modelling for both organic and prismatic shapes. Export data in standard IGES or STEP file formats or build fully parametric history tree directly into SOLIDWORKS.
Scan Data Import
Load data from any scanner using the industry standard STL mesh files. For long range scanners, the data can be imported using PTX file format. Reduce the number of polygons while keeping the original reference mesh for best results.
Reconstruct quickly planes, cylinders and spheres. Create relations between them as perpendicularity, parallelism and coincidence. Curvature based selection and best fitting algorithms allow the user to create precise primitives with ease.
Orienting Reference Mesh
Fast and easy orient the mesh in space in the correct position with respect to world coordinate system using extracted primitives including middle plane or even the position manually if needed. Display of mirrored points of the mesh will help to setup summetry objects correctly.
Efficient 2D Sketching using section points from the mesh as a reference. Real-time deviation color map provides control over the whole process. Construct Extruded and Revolved surfaces from the 2D sketch.
Trim, Fillet and Patterns
Apply standard operation on surfaces to achieve connected surfaces or solid bodies. Control in real-time fillet operation to the the best results. Mirror and Circular pattern save the user a lot of time and provide great results.
Free Form Modelling
Quad surface allows the user to reconstruct free form surface which is not possible with the standard surfacing methods. Real-time analyzer and snap-to-mesh technology allows even non-professionals to create shapes in no time. Something which is not available in any other solutions.
Create surface on organic shapes with hit of a button. No user interaction required.
History based parametric modelling
Get back and modify any of the shapes, including free form and get the end result immediately. Parametric modelling is a key feature of QUICKSURFACE.
Link to other CAD Packages
Export reconstructed surfaces or solid models for use in other packages using the industry standard format STEP or IGES.
QSConnect for SOLIDWORKS
User guided process allows the user to transfer the whole parametric history into SOLIDWORKS directly. The process is controlled by QUICKSURFACE to achieve error-free models and save a lot of time
Once you have your object scanned, export it from your scanning software as STL, OBJ or PLY mesh or PTX point cloud and load in QUICKSURFACE. As the software is fully optimized, there is no limitation of the size of the mesh you import. Reduce the number of triangles if needed. Use QUICKSURFACE's simple and powerful tools to create 2D sketches, extruded and revolved surfaces and free form surfaces. Apply standard CAD operations like trimming, booleans and patterns. Finish your work with adding fillets and chamfers. Keep control over your work with state of the art deviation control at any time of your work. Create a hybrid model with the best accuracy and design intent. Once you are ready export as industry standard STEP or IGES file or transfer directly the full parametric tree into SOLIDWORKS.
These are some of the features that make QUICKSURFACE different:
Interactive selection by the user instead of automatic segmentation on reference mesh;
Constrained best fit (for example the ability to constrain the direction of the cylinder to be parallel to an axis, while still getting the best fit to the points);
Relations between extracted primitives – parallelism, perpendicularity, coincidence, offset;
Quick alignment based on extracted primitive (datum) prioritization;
Mirrored point display to check symmetry of the aligned scan object;
Realtime deviation color map in 2D Sketch mode;
Proprietary snap-to-mesh technology for free form modelling;
Manipulator based accurate modification of the free form surfaces;
The ability to modify the automatic surface, if the design intent requires it;
QUICKSURFACE Free Form is not only exact surfacing, the user can manually adjust the resolution and position of control points to avoid mapping of the surface to the reference mesh which may have outliers and noise;
Realtime deviation in Free Form, helping to create lighter surfaces with less control points;
Control of patch size, and thus resolution on the final Free Form surface;
Parametric hybrid modelling - starting with free form and basic primitives, the user can build a complex CAD model by trimming them and can later change the surfaces based on the design intent;
QSConnect module for SOLIDWORKS never ends with "Transfer failed". The software guides the user to create an error-free model in SOLIDWORKS;
QUICKSURFACE has neither hardware integration with scanners nor mesh processing tools which the modern 3D scanners provide. As a result of this, the user does not have to pay extra for tools already included in the 3D scanners' software;
An affordable price for faster return on investment.
