INUS Technology Inc. has announced that Rapidform XOR3 is directly compatible with five CAD software applications. Rapidform features direct interfaces to CAD, enabling users to scan objects and generate parametric, feature-based models in Rapidform, then transfer the complete model to their CAD software. Rapidform XOR makes solid models that are editable.
With the release of Rapidform XOR3, users can open reverse engineered models as native geometry in:
- SolidWorks 2007-2010
- Siemens NX4-NX7
- Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0-5.0
- AutoCAD 2008-2010
- CATIA V4
Rapidform’s calls its approach to direct 3D scan-to-CAD compatibility liveTransfer. With liveTransfer technology, Rapidform XOR communicates directly with compatible CAD products to transfer the model step-by-step. Rather than getting shapes that must then be assembled and edited in CAD, XOR yields a native history tree. The result is a native CAD model that is fully editable, according to the company.
liveTransfer interfaces for SolidWorks, Siemens NX, Pro/E and AutoCAD are included in every license of Rapidform XOR3. XOR3 also saves models in CATIA V4’s.model file format.
