The Go!Model 3D reverse engineering and design tool from 3D Systems was developed to integrate with Creaform’s Go!Scan 3D portable scanner. The integrated package enables users to capture physical objects and directly model high-quality renderings and designs suitable for 3D printing. Go!Model 3D features mesh editing capabilities and an automatic NURBS surface utility. According to the company, the tool’s wizards complete frequently used scan processing steps in just a few clicks, and the decimation function reduces file size by half while preserving accuracy. The tool is said to extend the functionality of VXelements, Creaform’s data acquisition software, by providing professional-grade data processing and modeling.
