Reverse Engineering-to-SOLIDWORKS Software

Imagine being able to capture anything in the physical world and have a digital solid model of it in minutes.

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS is a reverse engineering software toolset that plugs directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment, giving you advanced capabilities to make tools, point clouds, and polygons more usable in your design process. You can import data or scan directly in SOLIDWORKS and use the feature extraction wizards to extract CAD sketches, surfaces, and solids.

The Only Complete Scan-to-SOLIDWORKS Solution

Integrated reverse-engineering software toolset that plugs directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment.


more accurate parts than using SOLIDWORKS alone


reduction in cycle time


faster reverse engineering for complex organic models

faster scan-based workflow


Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS acts as a bridge between physical parts and your CAD-to-SOLIDWORKS environment. It enables rapid design and engineering, with a streamlined path to production. Increase the productivity of your design work and jumpstart your creativity by using reference data captured from the real world. Transport physical objects into SOLIDWORKS and design around existing parts for a perfect fit.

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS delivers the ability to seamlessly 3D scan directly into SOLIDWORKS and create solid models using integrated, industry-proven toolsets for accurate design outcomes.

Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS supports all major scanners and portable CMMs, as well as importing standard point and polygon file formats.

After implementing Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS into our 3D scanning and design process, we have seen an approximate 30% reduction in cycle time from initial 3D scanning to having a SOLIDWORKS file ready for the CAD design process.
