Select the software depending on your application

Transform the way your designs are brought to life so you can design exactly what you envisioned. What’s special about Geomagic’s Digital Clay Sculpting Software is that they are the best for working with hollowed parts or shells. You can model parts from the inside. This can’t be achieved with any other 2D design programs that model in 3D.

Haptic Device Comparison

Add a sense of touch to your digital world

Get the most efficiency out of digital sculpting by pairing Geomagic Sculpt, Freeform, or Freeform Plus software with a haptic device. The 3D Systems haptic devices can accurately measure the 3D spatial position (along the x-, y- and z-axis) and the orientation (roll, pitch and yaw) with its handheld stylus. These interactive clay sculpting tools use motors to create forces that push back on your hand to simulate touch and interaction with virtual objects.

Geomagic Sculpt

Touch. Sculpt. Realize.
Geomagic Sculpt render

Geomagic Sculpt is a simple, fast, yet sophisticated precision voxel modeling software solution. Create organic designs, edit, and transform existing 3D data using the software’s sculpting, shaping, and detailing tools. Geomagic Sculpt empowers the creation of complex organic designs for products, sculptures, jewelry and artwork that can simply not be achieved in CAD. Produce watertight files for 3D printing every time.

Add Structure to Your Design

StructureFX is a powerful toolset for reducing time spent in complex workflows. Select from a palette of existing effects to rapidly create complex lightweight structures and cages in designs. 3D print analysis tools ensures successful 3D printing of impressive designs.

Discover Sculpting Freedom

Geomagic Sculpt is the only software that combines the benefits of voxel modeling and Sub Divisional (SubD) surface modeling with dimension-driven sketch tools. You can create exactly the geometry you envision, using constraints where you need to, and omitting them where you don’t.

Incredible Detailing Tools

Make your products stand out. Sculpt lets you create textures of any complexity in virtual clay. Use embossing tools to create design flourishes, which are often impossible in CAD. Simply import any image and go. The texture you see is the texture you get when 3D printing the model.

Geomagic Freeform and Freeform Plus

Precise. Organic. Engineered.
Geomagic Freeform render

Geomagic Freeform and Freeform Plus combine touch-based 3D sculpting, surfacing, design intent modeling, 3D scan processing, CAD interoperability, and mold making capabilities to give you the most comprehensive toolset for design. Experience hybrid modeling like no other. Both Freeform and Freeform plus includes all the functionality of Geomagic Sculpt and more. Create complex, sculptural, production-ready 3D models for additive or subtractive manufacturing with success.

Built-in Precision

Geomagic Freeform picks up where traditional CAD software stops. This hybrid modeling system has the flexibility and benefits of many different modeling paradigms incorporating Surfaces, Solids, Mesh, SubD, and Clay. Make smooth surfaces and razor sharp edges with SubD, model precisely defined CAD shapes with NURBS and Solids, or deform and emboss shapes with Clay.

Enhance Traditional CAD

Freeform and Freeform Plus are built to get your design into production. Its robust interoperability tools handle import and export of 3D file formats including STL, OBJ, PLY, IGES, STEP and other neutral formats. Freeform Plus supports additional CAD formats. Combine CAD files with sculpted features to create accurate organic solids that are defined by explicit dimensions.

Get More with Freeform Plus

Take your designs to the next level with the advanced toolsets in Geomagic Freeform Plus. Manufacturability is made easy by employing hybrid based conversions, surfacing, CAD editing tools, and mold prep tools, giving you the best of organic and digital design. Geomagic Wrap software is included for post-processing of 3D scan data.
