Two of FreeForm's unique aspects clearly differentiate it from other 3D modeling programs: its integration with haptic 3D input devices and its robust voxel-based data model. This combination provides a unique capability to emulate the physical process of sculpting clay. The haptic 3D input devices also enhance the experience of modeling using many more commonplace CAD techniques.     Online:

Geomagic FreeForm

Geomagic FreeForm is a unique touch-enabled solution that facilitates fast 3D modeling of complex, highly detailed, Organic shapes for prototyping or manufacturing.

Two of FreeForm's unique aspects clearly differentiate it from other 3D modeling programs: its integration with haptic 3D input devices and its robust voxel-based data model. This combination provides a unique capability to emulate the physical process of sculpting clay. The haptic 3D input devices also enhance the experience of modeling using many more commonplace CAD techniques.

This software offers a fast and cost-effective way for designers and modelers to create original models or modify and stylize scan data, and then output to RP systems for prototyping or milling. The system includes a comprehensive set of modeling and detailing tools, dimensional control, and import of polygon data for reference and modeling. For advanced manufacturing features, consider Geomagic® FreeForm® Plus, which includes tools such as parting line evaluation, mold design and CAD interoperability, enabling users to avoid costly production mistakes through adjustment of models early in the design process.

This software includes a Phantom® device, a true 3D interface with force feedback, and is available with either the Geomagic® Touch X™ or Geomagic® Touch™ haptic devices.

Unparalleled Creativity

Geomagic Freeform provides all the flexibility a designer could want, especially when designing toys, miniatures and figurines. That's why leading toy companies worldwide rely on Freeform to create award-winning designs in record time.

    Important Notes:

    Geomagic has tested a variety of hardware platforms in combination with the graphics subsystems listed above. While we make every attempt to be as thorough as possible, hardware manufacturers change their products frequently and may be shipping newer products or have discontinued active support for others.

    If you run FreeForm on a non-qualified system that meets the system requirements described above and experience problems, Geomagic support will make every effort to help solve the problems but cannot guarantee resolution.

    Some FreeForm users have had success running system configurations that deviate from the above. In such cases, these configurations are not officially supported by Geomagic.

    The PHANTOM Omni device is IEEE 1394A compliant. However, we are aware of customers that have experienced performance difficulties with their PHANTOM devices when using controller cards with certain IEEE 1394A chipset, such as NEC, or driver combinations. In these cases, it may be necessary to update or change the 1394 controller card driver or to try a separate add-on 1394 controller card.

    Geomagic doesn't officially support Mac machines; however, someSensAble customers have had success in running FreeForm with Windows on Mac using Boot Camp.
