Reverse-engineering solutions that
leverage your professional CAD/CAM software
Reverse Engineering solution
Create polygonal modeld of digitized parts in real timeAdopt effective scanning methods that ensure quality and precision with real-time quality meshing technology.
Repair and optimize imperfectly digitized geometryFill holes, smooth and rebuild surfaces, clean boundaries, recover sharp edges, make surfaces watertight, and more.
Appl CAD operations to polygonal modelsExtrude boundaries, offset surfaces, reconstruct fillets, perform Boolean operations with CAD models, and more.
Create surface patches from curves automatically
Intersect curves automatically and form 4-sided or N-sided trimmed surface patches that will control the fitting of a continuous network of NURBS surfaces.
Create CAD-friendly models
Ensure that your reverse-engineered models are editable within CAD/CAM applications by automatically bounding surface patches with continuous curves that naturally describe the part’s characteristics.
Automate the creation of curves and surface patches
Model an entire polygonal surface with a single click while controlling the description of curves that are critical for your application, such as symmetry lines, part boundaries, and subtle feature lines.
Create meaningful curves on polygonal surfaces
Control the geometric description of critical part features, such as boundaries, sharp edges, and fillet tangents, by interactively creating and fitting curves on polygonal surfaces.
Produce lighter models for downstream applications
Minimize the number of surface patches and improve fitting accuracy and patch continuity by automatically adapting the patch size and aspect ratio to the part’s surface curvature.
Tailor the surface fitting results to your needs
Choose the right balance between accuracy and smoothness while fitting NURBS surfaces, and enjoy our powerful two-step fitting process and blend-to-CAD technology.
Create sketches from digitized models
Define sketch planes from standard or user-defined planes, and extract outlines by slicing cross-sections of a polygonal model or extracting its silhouette edge.
Create sketch entities and dimensions
Fit parametric sketch entities (arcs, lines, circles, and splines) to the sketch outline, and add dimensions and relations as constraints for the entities.
Transfer PolyWorks sketches to your CAD solution
Import sketches in yout solid modeling CAD software using PolyWorks add-ins for CATIA, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, and Inventor.
