AN EASY FREEFORM REVERSE ENGINEERING BUNDLE BY THOR3D AND CYBORG

16 January 2020

Today, Thor3D announces its partnership with nPowerSoftware, the developer of Cyborg 3D MeshToCAD.  The bundle is aimed at specialists, who need a quick conversion from mesh to CAD of organic forms.

Freeform meshes are known to be time-consuming when it comes to reverse-engineering. While engineering parts are easily described by primitives, freeform shapes are distinct for having a lot of smooth edges between individual surface elements and require slightly different algorithms.

Cyborg enables the users to convert into CAD sculpted meshes (for example, Zbrush models) and scanned meshes. A 3D scan of a foot made by Calibry 3D scanner was reverse engineered in Cyborg software within minutes.

The solution is best suited for automotive industry, orthopedics and prosthetics, industrial design. Cyborg 3D MeshtoCAD is compatible with such well-known CAD-programs, as SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Rhinoceros ad Autodesk Inventor.

The bundle is available for purchase directly from Thor3D or via its distributor network.
