Rapidform® XOS™

Convert 3D Scans to Complete Meshes & NURBS Surface Models with Your 3D Scanner and Rapidform XOS.
•Best-in-class point cloud & mesh editing
•One button automatic NURBS surfacing
•Compatible with any 3D scanner
•Advanced hole-filling, smoothing and mesh optimization tools

Easy Data Capture

Rapidform XOS works with data from all leading 3D scanners, via LiveScan™ or native file import. LiveScan offers real-time data capture from many 3D scanners directly into XOS, allowing you to immediately start processing data. Capturing and processing data in an integrated environment saves time and improves quality. Rapidform XOS can also open more native 3D scanner file formats than any other software, and recognizes additional information specific to each 3D scanner.

Rapidform® XOR™

Rapidform XOR is the only reverse engineering software that combines CAD with 3D scan data processing so you can create parametric, editable solid models of virtually anything you scan.
•Generates history-based CAD models with feature trees
•Convert to your preferred file format, including SolidWorks, Creo, NX, Inventor, AutoCAD, CATIA and others
•Point cloud, mesh, surface and solid modeling all in one application
•Named “the only viable choice” for parametric reverse engineering in an independent study

Rapidform XOR makes 3D scan data more useful

All 3D scanners create point clouds or meshes, which aren’t that useful for most design needs. Rapidform XOR is purpose-built to create usable 3D models directly from scan data.

The fastest way to get from raw scans to real CAD models

There is simply no faster way to get from unprocessed 3D scans to complete, feature-based solid models. XOR’s redesign tools save hours or days of work compared to rebuilding in your CAD software.

Easy to learn and use because it works like your CAD software

If you can design in CAD, you can start using XOR right away. It uses familiar tools for solid modeling, and skips the old reverse engineering workflows involving painstaking polygon editing and surface generation.

Powerful and flexible

People are doing amazing things with Rapidform every day. Since XOR is built on a complete CAD kernel (Parasolid), it gives you the flexibility to make real CAD models the way you want. Everything you need is contained in one application, without the need to flip back and forth between apps. Additionally, its automated scan data processing tools make it easy to unlock the full potential of your 3D scanner.


Rapidform® XOV™

XOV is the safer, easier inspection software. Combine the power of 3D scanning and CAD to verify parts quickly and thoroughly. Because XOV is feature intelligent, a few clicks are all it takes to define alignments, dimensions, tolerances and create reports. Inspect directly from CAD data – skip the interim steps that increase the chance for errors and waste time.
•Accurate, automated part inspection
•Simple, fast and reliable dimension and tolerance (GD&T) setup
•The only native point cloud software that supports every callout in the ASME Y14.5 standard
•Vivid deviation color maps for quick verification of part quality
•Compatible with every major 3D scanner and probe-based device

Feature Intelligent Inspection

Rapidform XOV has CAD intelligence built in, so defining measurements is as easy as clicking on a feature on a CAD model. It’s the only point cloud software that recognizes features, so you don’t have to extract reference geometry before you define dimensions and tolerances. On parts with hundreds or thousands of dimension/tolerance callouts, this saves hours of setup time, and reduces the risk of error by measuring directly from the CAD model. And if your 3D CAD models include GD&T information, XOV can import it all and use it immediately (available for Siemens NX, CATIA V5 and Creo).

Safer & Easier

XOV is easy to use. Its straightforward, logical workflow makes setting up inspections simple, and it extracts every measurement automatically. Reproducibility is ensured by its automatic feature extraction algorithms, which reliably extract reference geometry from measurement data without user intervention. Deviation color maps reveal differences between the nominal and measured part with a glance. And editing inspection routines is easy with its patented parametric history tree.

Supports All 14 GD&T Callouts of the ASME Y14.5B Standard

Rapidform XOV is the only native point cloud software that offers every 2D and 3D GD&T callout. It supports in-depth GD&T functionality like material condition modifiers and multiple datum reference frames.

Use Point Clouds and Probe Data Interchangeably

XOV is built from the ground up to handle hundreds of millions of points from virtually any 3D scanner. It also supports many probe based devices with LiveInspect, Rapidform’s unique scanning/probing interface. Every measurement you take, regardless of the device it was collected with, is saved in XOV’s parametric history tree and can be used throughout the inspection routine.

Automatic Inspection Repetition

Because Rapidform XOV tracks every step of the inspection process, once you’ve inspected one sample of a part, every subsequent sample can be inspected automatically. XOV recognizes features in the scan data and measures them on the fly without any user interaction needed. So the next part you inspect is just one step from beginning to end. You don’t need to write macros to automate your work because Rapidform XOV is history-based just like Rapidform XOR.

Macro-free Inspection Process Automation

In XOV, you’ve got a simple interface similar to popular CAD applications, so running through the inspection process is a breeze. Just import the CAD nominal, open the scans of your part (or use LiveScan to run your 3D scanner inside XOV), and you’re ready to go. Every alignment, deviation color map, dimension and tolerance that you measure is added to the history tree, so you can track exactly what you’ve done and change anything at any time. No other point cloud metrology software lets you tweak your inspection process so easily. Imagine that you’re finishing up an inspection job, only to notice your part isn’t properly aligned to the CAD model – no problem! With XOV, you simply change the alignment, and the software recalculates every measurement and regenerates an inspection report.

Powerful Capabilities for the Most Demanding Applications

There’s a reason Rapidform XOV is used by almost every major automaker and thousands of other companies: it has in-depth functionality to complete the toughest inspection jobs. Sophisticated alignments, ANSI Y14.5b compliant GD&T and extensive deviation analysis capabilities let you perform detailed inspections of your parts. Sheet metal, castings, plastics, tooling and machined parts can all be measured and compared to CAD models in XOV.

Proven Accuracy

When it comes to inspection, every calculation counts. That’s why Rapidform XOV’s geometry calculation algorithms have been tested by America’s NIST, Britian’s NPL and independently certified by Germany’s PTB metrology authority as Class 1 accuracy. Top manufacturers around the world trust Rapidform XOV to measure thousands of parts every day.
