Reverse-engineering solutions that leverage your professional CAD/CAM software

 

polyworks modeler overlayPolyWorks|Modeler is a comprehensive reverse-engineering software solution that allows extracting optimal CAD entities - curves, surfaces, parametric sketches, and prismatic features - from polygonal models of digitised parts to serve as the starting point in your professional CAD modelling solution.

  • Work or model from polygonal models
  • Generate CAD-friendly free-form surfaces
  • Build solid CAD models from optimised geometric entities
 

Polygonal Modeling

Several industrial applications are capable of directly handling polygonal model representations. For example, polygonal models can be either directly milled, built using a 3D printer, or input into aerodynamic simulation software. PolyWorks|Modeler provides two categories of polygon-editing tools to prepare polygonal models for these applications:

  • A first set of tools is designed to repair and optimise imperfectly digitised geometry. For example, it may be necessary to interpolate new polygons over unmeasured areas to create a complete surface representation.
  • A second set of tools offers CAD operations on polygonal models, such as extrusion, offset, fillet, and Boolean operations.

Surface Modeling

PolyWorks|Modeler offers an intuitive surfacing approach in which curves are first laid down on a polygonal model, and then automatically intersected to form four-sided or N-sided trimmed NURBS patches. Next, the NURBS patches are used to control the fitting of a continuous network of NURBS surfaces. Fitted surfaces can then be exported to IGES or STEP files and directly imported into your favourite CAD/CAM application for further processing.

PolyWorks|Modeler's NURBS surfacing technology offers a remarkable balance between lead time and surface quality.

 

Solid Modeling

The solid modeling philosophy of PolyWorks|Modeler consists in optimising the extraction of geometric entities on digitised polygonal models, and then transferring these entities to your corporate feature-based solid CAD modeler to guarantee the creation of parametric, associative, and fully editable solid models.
