Explore QUICKSURFACE Features

Not like regular 3D CAD modelling (aka forward engineering), reverse engineering requires a different workflow. Check these features that you might not get from your caliper.

QUICKSURFACE provides two versions: Full & Free Form.

The Full version is equipped with all reverse engineering tools for both industrial products and organic shapes. Free Form version inherits the features for the organic shapes from the Full version. See the detailed comparison HERE.

Scan Data Import

Load data from any scanner using the industry standard STL, OBJ or PLY mesh files. For long range scanners, the data can be imported using PTX/E57 file format. Being a 64 bit application allows the user to load any size mesh. For the purposes of manipulation the build-in polygon reduction function allows the user to create a mesh with suitable number of triangles without compromising the quality of the mesh.

Interactive selection

Simple to use tools to quickly extract areas of interest. Magic wand, brush and free form selection allows the user to identify the areas that represent features or free form surfaces.

Primitives extraction

Quickly reconstruct planes, cylinders, cones and spheres. Create relations between them as peprendicularity, parallelism and coincidence. You can also create a reference geometries like lines and points for use in align mesh to space operation for correctly positioning the object into the world coordinate system.

Symmetry plane

Find a plane of symmetry of the object. Use the analyser to identify the quality of the position of the plane. Fine tune the position with on-screen controls to achieve the best results.

Feature-based Alignment

Position the object into the world coordinate system using the extracted primitives. The interactive definition of the coordinate system allows the user to adjust the correct orientation of the object.
Watch video

Manual Alignment

Fast and easy orient the mesh in space with the manual alignment tools. Display of mirrored points of the mesh will help to setup symmetry objects correctly.

2D Sectioning

Interactive sectioning allows the user to extract reference points for 2D Sketching. Align the section plane to extracted primitives, CAD faces and even create section interactively on the screen. For the purposes of lofting - the user can also create multiple sections at once.

Constrained 2D Sketching

Use dimensions and constraints to create accurate sketches like in any other CAD package.

3D Sketching, Loft, Sweep surfacing

Draw free form curves directly on the reference mesh then create surfaces by standard commands - loft, sweep, pipe. Join the surface or use them in trimming operations.

Fit Surface

Select area of interest and let the software to approximate the selection with a free form surface. The resulting surface is extended so it is suitable for trimming. The real-time deviation colour map instantly shows the quality of the surface. Automatic option allows the user to create surface as close as possible to the reference mesh.

Free Form Modelling

Quad surface allows the user to reconstruct free form surface which is not possible with the standard surfacing methods. Proprietary snap-to-mesh technology allows even non-professionals to create shapes in no time - something not available in any other solutions.

Real-time deviation analyser

Speed optimised real-time distance colour map allows the user to keep everything in control and get the most accurate results.

Automatic Surfacing

Create surfaces on organic shapes with just hit of a button. No user interaction required. QUICKSURFACE provides you with one of the best automatic surfacing available today. The algorithm optimises the number of resulting NURBS patches to be minimal. The surface quality is G2 everywhere and G1 at extraordinary points.

Hybrid parametric modelling

Together of being parametric for the standard features, the software allows you to create CAD models as a combination of free form and prismatic features. The user can always get back and modify even the free form surfaces if needed and get the results reconstructed.
Watch video

Triming & Boolean operations

Create surfaces or solids by using manual trim operation or boolean operations on solids. The coloured display and diagnostic tools allow you to identify the issues while performing these operations.
Watch video

Fillet & Chamfer

The chamfer and fillet operations provide a realtime analyser. Just drag the arrow to define the fillet radius on the screen and see immediatelly the deviation of the fillets against the reference mesh. And all this in real-time.

Deviation Analyser

Control the accuracy of your reconstruction with the efficient distance colour map. Compare the CAD model against the reference mesh at any time of your process.
Watch video

Link to other CAD Packages

Export reconstructed surfaces or solid models for use in other packages using the industry standard format STEP or IGES.

User guided process allows the user to transfer the whole parametric history into SOLIDWORKS® directly. The process is controlled by QUICKSURFACE to achieve error-free models and save a lot of time.
