Geomagic Freeform Plus

Geomagic Freeform Plus is a multi-representation, multi-purpose digital modeling and CAD system for producing manufacturable, highly-detailed objects that are intricate or organically shaped, such as toys, figurines, medical implants, fine art or other sculptural objects.

This software offers a fast and cost-effective way for designers and modelers to create original models or modify and stylize scan data, and then output to additive manufacturing systems for prototyping or rapid manufacturing, prepare molds for milling, or send to downstream CAD or CAM systems.

Two unique aspects of Freeform are integration with haptic 3D input devices and a robust voxel-based data model. The combination of these provides a unique capability to emulate the physical process of sculpting clay. The haptic 3D input devices also enhance the experience of modeling using many more commonplace CAD techniques.

The system includes a comprehensive set of modeling and detailing tools, dimensional control, and import of polygon and NURBS data for reference and modeling. Parting line evaluation is also included, enabling users to avoid costly production mistakes through adjustment of their models early in the design process.

When your work requires CAD part interoperability and preparing models for manufacturing, the FreeForm Plus system has all the capability of the FreeForm system and also includes NURBS surfacing and solids tools, CAD part interoperability, and moldable part and mold insert functionality.

This software includes a Geomagic Touch X device – a true 3D interface with force feedback to make design as intuitive as working in real clay.

Fast and Versatile Design and Modeling

Both the FreeForm Modeling and Modeling Plus systems include a comprehensive set of modeling and detailing tools. Which system is right for you depends on your specific modeling and workflow requirements.

PHANTOM Haptic Devices

The PHANTOM Desktop and PHANTOM Omni haptic devices are true 3D interfaces with force feedback that enable designers and modelers to use their sense of touch to model with virtual clay just like real clay. Of the two devices, the PHANTOM Desktop delivers higher fidelity, stronger forces, and lower friction. The FreeForm Modeling system is available with either the PHANTOM Desktop device or PHANTOM Omni device. The FreeForm Modeling Plus system is only available with the PHANTOM Desktop device.

Industrial and Product Design

How can you combine classic design ideas into the modern machine-age of perfection, precision and fast time-to-market? Geomagic Freeform Plus gives designers the edge over traditional CAD tools by offering the flexibility to organically model shapes, combine 3D data from scans and other sources, integrate with traditional CAD components, and make amazing new products in no time at all.

Rapid and Intuitive Toy Design

It’s no wonder that the world’s leading toy designers, and their manufacturing partners, rely on Freeform modeling systems to create and manufacture exceptional products in record time. As toy designs become more sophisticated, designers must be able to express greater realism, creativity and vision in ever-shortened production cycles. Whether designing fashion dolls, strategy game characters, infant toys or licensed character premiums, Geomagic Freeform Plus is the perfect platform.

Medical Visualization and Production

From creating study models to custom implants, and from maxillofacial surgical guides to orthotics and prosthetics, Geomagic Freeform Plus helps medical designers leverage CT and 3D scan data to quickly and accurately create perfectly fitting parts that match the organic human form. Geomagic Freeform Plus is helping medical professionals restore patient form and function every day.
