New Features for Geomagic Design


3D System's powerful low cost CAD solution, Geomagic Design has a new exciting update. Geomagic Design now integrates powerful scanning and print checking solutions that provides solutions that directly interact with other 3D Systems products.

Printability - Design with confidence. Your part will 3D print perfectly! Geomagic Design has breakthrough new technology to analyze your models on-the-fly to ensure printability. It will indicate if any part of the model will not print properly based on which 3D Systems printer you’ll print with.

Teamplatform Integration - Make your design projects faster and more efficient with TeamPlatform, a cloud-based collaboration system built specifically for 3D design work. Manage complex design projects across the country or across the world. Share your 3D models securely with colleagues and customers. They don’t even need CAD viewer software, because TeamPlatform shows 3D models in a browser.

Mesh Support - Incorporate mesh files into your work in Geomagic Design, so you can use STLs and other meshes like solids and surfaces. It’s great for mashups of models you can download or just have a mesh file for.
