Point2CAD is an indispensable software for intuitively reverse-engineer physical parts into SolidWorks CAD environment. With Point2CAD you can easily create parametric solid models from your physical part. Using a MicroScribe arm is like using your mouse, but with the added ability to capture data live in 3D.
Define coordinate systems, probe features such as circles, slots and much more to generate the ideal model. You can even check your work or get guidance for defining tolerance, by probing over the part using the deviation check function.
Point2CAD makes it easy for engineers, industrial designers, machinists, to quickly capture geometry from physical parts and put it directly inside SolidWorks CAD environment for reverse engineering. The software allows you to easily create parametric solid models more efficiently. It is used in conjunction with a portable CMM to provide the convenience of capturing instant live data in 3D directly into SolidWorks.
You can easily define coordinate systems, probe features such as circles, slots and much more to generate your ideal model. Check your work or get guidance for defining tolerance by probing over the part using the deviation check function.
Sketch Entities: Sketch lines, circles, ellipses, splines, slots, planes and other elements with your measuring arm.
AutoSketch: Quickly sketch profile perimeters.
Probe Compensation: Automatically apply offset values to compensate probe tips.
Leapfrog: Reposition the measuring arm around larger parts.
Best-Fit Algorithms: Apply the optimal faces/entities to represent rougher surfaces.
Measurement Modes: Acquire single points or use continuous scan modes.
Deviations: Inspect and compare the part to the parametric model.
