This software offers a fast and cost-effective way for designers and modelers to create original models or modify and stylize scan data, and then output to additive manufacturing systems for prototyping or rapid manufacturing, prepare molds for milling, or send to downstream CAD or CAM systems.

Two unique aspects of Freeform are integration with haptic 3D input devices and a robust voxel-based data model. The combination of these provides a unique capability to emulate the physical process of sculpting clay. The haptic 3D input devices also enhance the experience of modeling using many more commonplace CAD techniques.

The system includes a comprehensive set of modeling and detailing tools, dimensional control, and import of polygon and NURBS data for reference and modeling. Parting line evaluation is also included, enabling users to avoid costly production mistakes through adjustment of their models early in the design process.

When your work requires CAD part interoperability and preparing models for manufacturing, the FreeForm Plus system has all the capability of the FreeForm system and also includes NURBS surfacing and solids tools, CAD part interoperability, and moldable part and mold insert functionality.

This software includes a Geomagic Touch X device – a true 3D interface with force feedback to make design as intuitive as working in real clay.

Fast and Versatile Design and Modeling
Both the FreeForm Modeling and Modeling Plus systems include a comprehensive set of modeling and detailing tools. Which system is right for you depends on your specific modeling and workflow requirements.

PHANTOM Haptic Devices
The PHANTOM Desktop and PHANTOM Omni haptic devices are true 3D interfaces with force feedback that enable designers and modelers to use their sense of touch to model with virtual clay just like real clay. Of the two devices, the PHANTOM Desktop delivers higher fidelity, stronger forces, and lower friction. The FreeForm Modeling system is available with either the PHANTOM Desktop device or PHANTOM Omni device. The FreeForm Modeling Plus system is only available with the PHANTOM Desktop device.
