RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., November 11, 2010- Geomagic has received a Report of Special Test from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The NIST Special Test reports the accuracy of the least-squares fitting features of the company's software for a wide range of geometry used in Geomagic Studio© 12 and Geomagic Qualify™ 12 SR1. The NIST Special Report test procedures are documented in ASME B89.4.10-2000 and NISTIR 5686.

The NIST Special Report covers least-squares fitting methods in both Geomagic Studio and Geomagic Qualify. These products were tested on 240 datasets representing geometry types including lines, circles, spheres, cylinders and cones. For example, the results for circles and cylinders were accurate to less than 10-4 microns in position and radius and 10-4 arc seconds in angle of tilt compared to the official reference values.

“We are very pleased to receive this certification,” said Ping Fu, CEO, Geomagic. “This achievement reassures existing and new customers of our continued commitment to excellence in the field of 3D reverse engineering and inspection. It also reflects the constant advances in technology that Geomagic’s software engineers achieve almost on a daily basis.”
