Geomagic Freeform 2019


Take a look at the powerful new features inside the latest edition of Geomagic Freeform, available now!



Geomagic Freeform 2019 introduces new functionality that makes it radically easier for more people to design in Freeform no matter their experience level, automate and speed up repetitive modelling tasks to increase productivity, and ensure more consistent results.

  • Dynabot™ Automation is a revolutionary addition to Freeform, introducing advanced record and playback macro capability that significantly speeds repetitive customization and production workflows. Users can apply logic to recorded sequences, edit parameters, and insert user prompts and instructions. This complete set of automation capability will greatly increase our production-customers speed of workflow, and allow them to onboard new production design processes much faster.
  • UI Customization (including palette filtering and new color schemes) allows you to customize your user interface based on individual preferences for an enhanced experience.
  • Guide Curves for Autosurfacer lets you leverage pre-drawn curves to define boundaries for key regions and assign their edge continuity.
  • Pattern Piece & Axis Marker Enhancements let you pattern sets of objects along multiple paths all at once.
  • New Touch X USB Support gives you the convenience, precision, and reliability of the latest Touch X haptic device improvements.
  • Enhanced Color Management makes Boolean color and clay/mesh conversion more predictable and gives you new levels of control.
  • Enhanced Favorites List now supports multiple columns and displays tool icons.

Scrollable Palettes let you quickly find the tools you need with the flick of your mouse wheel.

Geomagic Design X 2019


The new Geomagic Design X packs some powerful new optimisations under the hood. Learn how it could boost your design workflow here.



Geomagic Design X enables you to capture scanned data and rapidly create accurate, manufacturing-ready CAD models. This major release adds speed, quality and enhanced user experience, providing you with better quality CAD models and the fastest turnaround time in the market.

Scan faster, design faster, grow ROI faster

  • Confidently capture data and process scans 2X faster than before.
  • Automatically and repeatedly, handle scan data with a click of a button, using scan processing macros.
  • Create CAD faster by employing intelligent sketch tools that dimension and constrain with design-intent in mind.

Handle any downstream task with higher quality results

  • Ensure high quality surfaces with new analysis tools like Zebra Strip Mapping and Curvature Combs.
  • Check design deviations faster by harnessing an enhanced Accuracy Analyzer™.
  • Achieve better surfacing results with higher quality curve networks driven by new constraint capability.

Enjoy working smarter, not harder

  • An enhanced UI intuitively arranges tools to follow the design workflow.
  • Experience effortless data capturing with a new UI that gives you the tools you want, when you want them.
  • Visualize your data smoothly using an upgraded mesh engine.

Sinterit Studio software options


The latest must-have companion to your Sinterit 3D printer, 2019’s Sinterit Studio sees some major improvements across the board, so you can spend less time tweaking settings and more time printing.



  1. New interface design to make the process more intuitive.
  2. Optimized performance via improved algorithms, helping make your workflow faster and more effective.
  3. Improved model arranging assistance including object collision warnings, object grouping, and a local coordinate system.
  4. Uploading files by WiFi allows you to send your files straight to your printer. Arrange the models, choose the parameters and you’re good to go!

Sinterit Studio comes in a variety of flavours to suit the differing requirements of Sinterit users, so you can choose the package that fits your needs and workflow:

➤ Sinterit Studio

Converting 3MF to STL file format


The 3D Manufacturing Format (3MF), a Joint Development Foundation project established to develop an advanced 3D printing file format, has announced that 17 companies have adopted its 3MF platform.

“Wide adoption of 3MF is occurring because 3MF is a modern 3D printing file format designed with manufacturing in mind. For additive manufacturing, 3MF completely replaces STL, OBJ and VRML file formats, eliminating many interoperability issues,” said Adrian Lannin, Executive Director, 3MF.

Such companies utilising the 3MF 3D printing format include 3D Systems.

The 3MF Consortium was formed in 2015, to address the issues with currently available file formats to enable design applications for “full fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services, and printers.”

An advanced 3D printing file format 

Designed specifically for the additive manufacturing process, 3MF includes material and properties, production, beam lattice, and slice extensions. The new format contains the necessary model, material and property information in a single archive.

Furthermore, this format provides clear language and conformance tests to ensure a file is consistent from digital to physical. On the other hand, the commonly used STL format exclusively stores information about the vertices and the normal vector of a 3D model.

Converting 3MF to STL

Cimatron CADCAM software can be used to import 3MF files and convert to STL. CDG represent 3D Systems and Cimatron in the UK market.
