Rapidform, Inc., and Metris USA announce that they have entered into an agreement wherein Metris will offer Rapidform 3D scanning software with Metris’ range of 3D scanning systems. Metris is offering Rapidform XOR, XOS and XOV software tools for creating CAD models from 3D scan data and performing dimensional inspection based on scan and probing data, enhancing Metris’ position as a world-class metrology solutions provider.
Martin Chader, Rapidform’s Vice President of Business Development stated, “We are delighted that a solutions provider with Metris’ stature sees the value in the Rapidform product line. For example, many Metris customers want to create editable CAD models from scan data. Rapidform XOR, our 3rd generation reverse engineering software, is uniquely suited to create SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer, UG NX, Parasolid, STEP and IGES CAD models directly from scan data. Metris’ customers are already experiencing one of the promises of 3rd generation CAD modeling: time savings. XOR creates parametric CAD models directly from scan data, avoiding the labor-intensive steps of creating a water-tight mesh, and then a NURBS model before any CAD modeling can even be started.” Chader added “Of course, if the customer only needs a mesh or surface model, Rapidform offers XOS at a value point that the competition has been unable to match.
