VXModel: Scan-to-CAD Post-Processing Software

VXmodel is a post-treatment software that directly integrates into VXelements, and enables finalizing 3D scan data to use directly in any 3D printing or CAD software. VXmodel provides the simplest and fastest path from 3D scans to your computer-aided design or additive manufacturing workflow.

A great addition to any Creaform 3D Scanner, VXmodel is simple but powerful, including only the features necessary to complement your CAD software. You already have all the design and modeling capabilities in your software: VXmodel only provides the tools you need for a quick and seamless integration into your scan-based design process.

  • Benefits & Capabilities

Mesh Editing

VXmodel provides simple, yet efficient tools required to prepare the 3D scan mesh for reverse engineering or 3D printing.

  • Clean meshes
  • Fill holes
  • Merge meshes
  • Decimate meshes
  • Make meshes watertight

Alignment

Scans must be aligned to the coordinate system before export, a simple but crucial finalization step. The VXmodel alignment tool highly flexible, straightforward and not limiting.

  • Use datum/entities suited to the design needs
  • Best fit alignment

 

NURBS Surface and Geometrical Entities

VXmodel enables you to easily generate NURBS surfaces for characterizing freeform surfaces. Primitive entities can be easily extracted from the mesh to complete the design in a CAD software.

  • Auto surface
  • Entities from plan to slot by cross‑section
  • Curves

Transfer-to-CAD

Export to any CAD platform using standard format (.iges, .step, .dxf)

  • Transfer parametric entities in your CAD software with a simple right‑click
  • Direct transfer to:
    SolidWorks / Autodesk Inventor / Solid Edge
