MORRISVILLE, N.C. -- January 29, 2013

Geomagic^®, a global company providing 3D technology for digital reality,
today announced the availability of the 2013 versions of its industry-leading
Geomagic Qualify^®, Geomagic Qualify^® Probe, Geomagic Studio^® and Geomagic
Wrap^®, which transform scan and probe data into 3D to be used in design,
manufacturing and metrology applications. Geomagic’s latest software products
deliver more comprehensive platforms for greater automation and user
customization of 3D inspection and scanning processes, enhanced features
focused on probing procedures, and streamlined workflows.

Geomagic Qualify 2013 and Geomagic Qualify Probe 2013

Geomagic Qualify 2013 expands upon an already powerful platform with more
comprehensive, robust and accurate 3D metrology features and automation tools,
which can be used with both scan and probe data. Geomagic Qualify Probe 2013
incorporates Geomagic Qualify 2013’s rich toolset in a probing-only measuring

The 2013 releases include deeper platform access and the ability for users to
write custom functionality – like inspection protocols, constrained
alignments, CAD model access and reporting – using Python scripting. Enhanced
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) probing and measurement functions
include CAD-less definition of nominal geometry, improved prompts to probe
test data, and a more detailed Measure Features command that delivers measured
and nominal features plus deviations. The products now have more streamlined
workflows designed to help customers improve inspection, produce better
products, and lower operating and manufacturing costs.

In addition, the Geomagic Qualify products have been enhanced to deliver more
intuitive interactivity between the engineer and the software, especially in
the QuickFeature^™ and QuickProbe^™ toolsets. These new features make it even
easier to quickly measure the size of manufactured parts while performing
automated inspection and measurement in near real time on the manufacturing
shop floor.

Geomagic Studio 2013

Geomagic Studio, the industry’s most advanced solution for automated point
cloud cleanup, mesh repair and patch functions, helps designers, engineers and
manufacturers produce highly accurate 3D polygonal models from scan data. The
new version of Geomagic Studio allows users to save time with increased
automation, and it includes Python scripting and a command line-driven version
of the software, which allows customers to create and execute customized
macros and scripts without a graphical user interface, allowing commands to
run faster and use less memory.

Geomagic Studio 2013 also includes the ability to capture design intent from
any shape for history-based CAD platforms, an easy-to-learn interface for
streamlined functionality and fast operations, and a wide array of hardware
and software integration capabilities.

“Our 3D museum work at the Idaho Virtualization Lab would not be possible
without Geomagic Studio at the core of our activities," reported Herbert
Maschner, director. “Geomagic is a critical part of our Democratization of
Science Project as we put the Idaho Museum of Natural History’s collections
online. Using Geomagic, 3D models of mammal bones, complete skeletons, fossils
and artifacts are accurately and quickly created from 3D scans, and these 3D
models are accessed and used by thousands of students and scholars worldwide
for education and research.”

Geomagic Wrap 2013

Geomagic Wrap incorporates many of Geomagic Studio 2013’s new automation and
customization features, which allow artists, archeologists, designers and
filmmakers, among others, to create perfect 3D models from physical objects.
With its 2013 release, Geomagic Wrap now also includes exact surfacing, using
the powerful one-button AutoSurface tools. Additional new features include
Repair Patches, Construct Grids and Fit Surfaces functions, and more
automated, intelligent tools for visualizing and transforming point clouds
into usable 3D models. For prototyping, analysis, archiving, design, visual
effects and more, Geomagic Wrap is a cost-effective, user-friendly way to
quickly incorporate 3D scanning into a variety of workflows.

“In a world that is increasingly moving to digital reality, where physical
objects become digital and digital objects become physical, manufacturers need
innovative scanning and inspection tools that simplify and automate these
processes,” said Kevin Scofield, Geomagic’s senior product manager. “As
manufacturers look to scanning and inspection as a way to get products to
market faster and drive competitive advantage, Geomagic’s 2013 products are at
the forefront of usability, customization, automation and highly accurate


Geomagic Studio 2013, Geomagic Qualify 2013, Geomagic Qualify Probe 2013, and
Geomagic Wrap 2013 are now available. Geomagic is also announcing a new
Enterprise Bundle, which provides scanning, design and inspection in a bundled
configuration. Geomagic’s products are available in English, German, Chinese
(simple and traditional), Japanese, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese,
French and Czech. Please visit for more information or to
