Explore the main features of the QUICKSURFACE Full
QUICKSURFACE is a standalone application working on Windows 10 for converting 3d scanned meshes into CAD models.
All the features available in Free Form version plus many others.
Scan Data Import
Load data from any scanner using the industry standard STL, OB or PLY mesh files. For long range scanners, the data can be imported using PTX file format. Being a 64 bit application allows the user to load any size mesh. For the purposes of manipulation the build-in polygon reduction function allows the user to create a mesh with suitable number of triangles without compromising the quality of the mesh.
Simple to use tools to quickly extract areas of interes. Magic wand, brush and free form selection allows the user to identify the areas that represent features or free form surfaces
Reconstruct quickly planes, cylinders, cones and spheres. Create relations between them as peprendicularity, parallelism and coincidence.
You can also create a reference geometries like lines and points for use in align mesh to space operation for correctly positioning the object into the world coordinate system
Position the object into the world coordinate system using the extracted primitives. The interactive definition of the coordinate system allows the user to adjust the correct orientation of the object.
Interactive sectioning allows the user to extract rerefence points for 2D Sketching. Align the section plane to extracted primitives, CAD faces and even create section interactively on the screen. For the purposes of lofting – the user can also create multiple sections at once
Constrained 2D Sketching
Use dimenstions and constraints to create accurate sketches like in any other CAD package
3D Sketching, Loft, Sweep surfacing
Draw free form curves directly on the reference mesh then create surfaces by standard commands – loft, sweep, pipe. Join the surface or use them in trimming operations.
Select area of interest and let the software to approximate the selection with a free form surface. The resulting surface is extended so it is suitable for trimming. The real-time deviation colour map instantly shows the quality of the surface. Automatic option allows the user to create surface as close as possible to the reference mesh.
Free form and Automatic surfacing
Benefit from all the features available in QUICKSURFACE Free Form. Create free form surfaces or use automatic surfacing to create surfaces that cannot be modelled with the traditional CAD approaches
Hybrid parametric modelling
Together of being parametric for the standard features, the software allows you to create CAD models as a combination of free form and prismatic features. The user can always get back and modify even the free form surfaces if needed and get the results reconstructed.
Triming & Boolean operations
Create surfaces or solids by using mutual trim operation or boolean operations on solids. The coloured display and diagnostic tools allow you to identify the issues while performing these operations
Fillet & Chamfer
The chamfer and fillet operations provide a realtime analyser. Just drag the arrow to define the fillet radius on the screen and see immediatelly the deviation of the fillets against the reference mesh. And all this in real-time
Control the accuracy of your reconstruction with the efficient distance colour map. Compare the CAD model against the reference mesh at any time of your process.
Link to other CAD Packages
Export reconstructed surfaces or solid models for use in other packages using the industry standard format STEP or IGES.
QSConnect for SOLIDWORKS®
User guided process allows the user to transfer the whole parametric history into SOLIDWORKS® directly. The process is controlled by QUICKSURFACE to achieve error-free models and save a lot of time
