Get CAD-Friendly Surface Models from Automatic Surfacing Technology

With a single click, automatically turn your 3D scans into high-quality surface models directly usable in your preferred downstream applications, including FEA and mechanical simulation, machining, and CAD design, thanks to our revolutionary surface modelling approach

  • Model a polygonal surface by automating the creation of characteristic curves and surface patches and fitting a continuous network of NURBS surfaces

  • Create editable models suitable for CAD design and simulation applications by automatically bounding surface patches with continuous curves that naturally describe the part’s characteristic

  • Produce lighter models with better fitting accuracy and patch continuity for downstream applications by automatically adapting the patch size and aspect ratio to the part’s surface curvature

Simplify your Reverse-Engineering Workflow

For even greater flexibility, the automatic surfacing technology is perfectly integrated within our intuitive curve-based surfacing workflow, letting you interactively edit the curve network to create optimal surface models


• Edit the automatic surfacing results intuitively by adding, deleting, or reshaping curves, as you would do in a manual reverse-engineering workflow
