     • Transform traditional hand fabrication of orthoses and prostheses to digital workflow.
     • Highly personalized, better fitting, lighter, stronger custom devices.
     • Freedom to innovate and personalize artisanship with precise, multi-material engineering grade manufacturing processes.
     
    Geomagic Freeform® is not a medical device and 3D Systems makes no claims that it is intended to treat, plan, or diagnose. However, there is evidence and publicly available research that indicates many customers are successful using Geomagic Freeform in their own patient specific solution workflows and are following all local regulatory requirements.


    Add the Sense of Touch to Your Digital World

     For the ultimate in expressive freedom and faster modeling, Geomagic Freeform products work exclusively with the included 3D Systems Touch haptic devices to deliver freedom of motion and the physical sensation of sculpting in a virtual environment. This intuitive way of interacting with your 3D design reduces learning curves, speeds design and allows you to deliver top-notch 3D data.

    Learn About Geomagic Freeform® 2019

    Elevate your design workflow with the new Geomagic Freeform 2019. Digitize your product lifecycle to gain efficiencies with faster, more precise digital design and production. Geomagic Freeform works seamlessly with solid and surface modelling software. It is easy to get started download a free trial with educational tutorials.

    Features
    Streamline Mass Custom Design Workflows

     • The new Sketch Text tool easily generates outline font profiles that can be used to create 3D part labels.
     • Shell Cut is a new tool that enables the creation of layered text or details as independent 3D objects that match the surface contours of the underlying part. Together these new tools make mass-customization of any design easier than ever.


    Improved Accuracy in Complex Designs

    This 2D slicing analysis tool not only provides a dynamically interactive cross-section inspection tool, but also provides multiple methods and modes for extracting slice-based image stacks or profile curves. These functions can be used to identify voids, avoid collisions, validate clearance specifications, or reverse engineer the shape of a volume giving you the assurance that your design is accurate and correct.


    Improved Documentation Capabilities
    Advanced documentation tools enable streamlined communication with your customers.

    • Easily create images for downstream documentation with the click of a button
     • Generate a single image or sets of images based on orthographic or turntable views
     • Utilize options that eliminate downstream editing time such as cropping, centering, object filtering and background transparency (PNG)


    Promote legacy Common Solids to Solid Pieces

     Freeform Plus v2017 has a new option to promote legacy Common Solids to be Solid Pieces, infusing them with new capabilities. Promoting a legacy Common Solid to be a Solid Piece enables more precise positioning control, per-piece attribute assignment, higher status in the Object List, and access to a broader set of palette tools.


    Performance Optimizations

     • Multi-piece Reduce-for-Export is now multi-threaded, reducing processing time as much as 50% or more based on one piece per logical core
     • Reduce file sizes by as much as 95% using optional File Compression on save
     • Optimizations to transparency improves framerates, increases rendering quality, and supports modes for either High or Low Resolution Clay See Through, allowing for the best balance of quality and redraw performance in any workflow situation.


    Additional 2017 Enhancements

     • Drag-and-drop to import clay files into an existing open project
     • Measure angle capability added to the ruler tool
     • New tessellation controls are now provided for solid-to-mesh conversions, incluing the import of CAD parts as mesh


    Construct Clay

    Make smooth surfaces and razor sharp edges with SubD, model precisely defined CAD shapes with NURBS and Solids or deform and emboss shapes with Clay.


    Sculpt Clay

    Carve and shape your clay with a wide range of tools in your virtual space including razors, knife cutters, scrapers and more. Smooth, smudge and shape the design using a variety of available tools.
    Detail and Edit Clay
    Tug, ridge, emboss and deform your clay without limitations using Freeform’s detailing tools to create exactly the design you envisage. Benefit from the full range of selection and move features that allow repositioning, alignment, and separation of the design. Benefit from a range of dimensional controls to assist with accuracy in designs.


    3D Curves

     Easily draw, repair and edit curves, project from a sketch and to a plane, intersect sketches and offset curves.
     Plane Features
     Create, edit and sketch on a plane, orient the plane and copy profiles
     2D Sketching
     Fully create and edit sketches within Geomagic Freeform with pencil, freehand, control point curves, and basic 2D forms such as lines, arcs, circles, etc.


    Mesh, Paint and Rendering

    Important Notes:

    While 3D Systems makes 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.

    The graphics drivers specified in these tables are the drivers that were used for the qualification process. While it may be possible to use the Geomagic modeling systems successfully on earlier or later drivers, 3D Systems cannot guarantee their performance.

    Some 3D Systems users have had success running system configurations that deviate from the above. In such cases, these configurations are not officially supported by 3D Systems.
