The Smallest Soccer Player in the World Repaired with Geomagic Design X

The LZH Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. collaborates with 3D Systems and Trimetric GmbH to reverse engineer a Tippkick® smallest playable soccer figurine in the world using Geomagic Design X.
A superlative as an advertising medium

 Founded in 1986, LZH Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. mainly supports applied research in the field of laser technology on a non-profit basis. Not only to launch their new production system, but also to attract more visitors at an exhibition, LZH planned to display a special item at the booth which needed to be reverse-engineered by Geomagic Design X to create Parametric CAD Models from 3D Scan Data.

Problem analysis and the ideal solution
Since each tiny football player models consists of complex shapes with a lot of components, it is very important to keep all the details with high accuracy. Furthermore, to utilize the final reverse-engineered model it is critical to have full feature-based history for the data.

Geomagic Design X is able to convert raw scans into high quality polygon mesh models and “Mesh Buildup Wizard™” is mainly used for Quick & Easy Polygon Creating in Automatic way. Moreover, Design X is available to export a fully parametric solid model to SOLIDWORKS, Siemens NX and ProE/Creo, and Inventor. Other 3D applications can open models created in Geomagic Design X using industry-standard formats like Parasolid, STEP and IGES.

Geomagic Design X proves its strengths when creating NURBS surface and solid models for use in CAD/CAM and other downstream applications. In other words, Design X enables users to create One-button quick B-rep surfacing and also additionally generate automatic re-meshing for generating CAD functional models. Furthermore, during the modeling process, Design X shows real time deviation analysis so it can ensure a finished model is faithful to the original 3D scan.

The third-generation parametric reverse engineering approach inside Geomagic Design X creates high quality, ready to manufacture solid CAD models fast and particularly for complex models. Design X is able to deliver more values in easy way.
