Parametric Exchange technology for seamless CAD transfer available for preview

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., February 24, 2009- Geomagic has launched Geomagic Labs, a community website that provides early access to new technologies, innovation and product concepts before they appear in commercial software.  For more information, visit Geomagic Labs.

"Geomagic Labs is a vehicle for tapping into the collective intelligence of designers, engineers and manufacturers from around the world," says Karl Matthews, director of product management for Geomagic. "The collaborative conversations opened up by Geomagic Labs will enable us to better understand user needs and tailor our products and solutions to meet those needs."

The first major technology for preview and discussion on Geomagic Labs is Parametric Exchange, a new feature that reduces product development time by enabling seamless transfer of parametric surfaces, solids, datums and curves from Geomagic Studio software to major CAD packages. The Parametric Exchange preview is available currently for Autodesk Inventor and Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire.

Other technology previews and utilities available on Geomagic Labs include:

  • GeoAutoMate - a utility that improves productivity by monitoring a directory, automatically loading input files into Geomagic Studio or Geomagic Qualify, and executing a user-defined macro.
  • MakumDatum - a program that provides drag-and-drop automation for creating datum points in Geomagic Studio and Geomagic Qualify.
  • American Board of Orthodontics Base (ABO) Add-On - a new feature that enables the creation of digital orthodontic models for case presentation, model storage and rapid prototyping.
