Customers Use Geomagic Design for:
Automotive Design and Production
Thordon Bearings Ing.
Vaughn Power, Marine Systems Designer
"Geomagic Design has allowed me to reproduce a full 3D assembly model of our lubrication system. I had already completed a similar design using Mechanical Desktop but was surprised to find that I could complete an entire new design in about half the time using Alibre Design."
Triton Systems, DBA
"Currently, with much interest in small, commercial space projects (e.g., X-prize vehicles or successors cheap access to space, "space tourism") small groups of engineers are scurrying to find inexpensive means to do Computer Aided Design. My conclusion: Alibre Design is the way to go."
Industrial Equipment Manufacturing
Ford Jacobs, Design Engineer
"With the ability to share our concepts and ideas with our customers using 3D images, our ability to understand and provide the customers exactly what they need has been very much improved. We are tapping into new market areas that we simply could not have competed in before we started using Geomagic Design. I am very satisfied."
Consumer Product Manufacturing
"I found the interface [of Geomagic Design] very intuitive and the learning curve short. I have since become enamored with the collaborative design features and hope that this product might help me leap some of the language hurdles present with our overseas manufacturers. This solid modeler fits my needs and it's a super value."
3D Model Creation
Get the idea to working prototype fast. Geomagic Design offers a rich set of 3D modeling and assembly design tools for the fast creation of complex geometry. Bottom-up and top-down design allows you to work efficiently. Everything you make is instantly editable, allowing for fast iterations. Take your pick from parametrically-controlled design through to direct editing of the models and export out to production, milling and 3D printing at the click of a button.
Sheet Metal Modeling
If your design calls for sheet metal Geomagic Design offers advanced modeling tools that make it easy. Flanges, closed corners, complex lofts, dimples, and many other tools combined with instant flat patterns get accurate and fast results.
Advanced sheet metal tools include: Conversion of normal or imported parts into unfoldable sheet metal parts, lofted flange creation, and contour flange creation. These tools fundamentally change sheet metal workflows, providing superior speed to the design process.
2D Documentation Creation
Turn any 3D model into a 2D drawing instantly. Comprehensive detailing tools make efficient work of fully conveying your intent. When you update your 3D model, all associated drawings update, including annontations, views, section views, etc.
Infinitely Customizable Part Creation
Create flexible designs that can be reused and customized using Global Parameters. Design a part one time, and re-parameterize it to fit your custom-fit application
Direct Editing Toolset
A toolset dedicated to working with geometry when feature history is not available. Easily change the sizes of holes, or move entire parts of the model around without editing a single feature. Perfect for working with imported parts or making last minute changes.
Show clients what they're getting before it's made and use it to win bids. Create compelling brochures to drive sales or create a beautiful virtual product line on a website. Rendering so easy you will be productive inside of 30 minutes with no previous experience, guaranteed.
Dynamics for Geomagic Design
Dynamics for Geomagic Design offers advanced motion analysis capabilities. Easily set up motion elements by reusing relationships you've already set up in the assembly. Graph things like a part's velocity, position, and many other things. You can also export movies to illustrate motion analysis to clients and colleagues.
