VX Software Overview

All Creaform 3D scanners come with VXscan, a fully integrated 3D software platform that powers our entire fleet of 3D scanning and measurement technologies. It gathers all the essential elements and tools into a user-friendly, simplified and sleek working environment. Its real-time visualization provides a simple, enjoyable scanning experience. An optimized scan file is automatically created and available upon completion of the data acquisition step, which contributes to greatly shorten your part inspection or design process.

Optionally users can upgrade to VXmodel and/or VXinspect which offers more advanced CAD modeling and inspection functionality.
  • Real-time visualization - the user can view the 3D surface as the object is being scanned
  • Surface optimization algorithm - avoids the creation of multiple scan layers and ensures a more accurate mesh without any post-treatment;
  • Direct mesh output - an optimized mesh can be exported in all standard formats, right as you complete acquisition. No complicated alignment or point cloud processing needed;
  • No limitation to the scan resolution - you simply need to input a resolution value, independent from the size of the scanned object. Resolution can be changed at any time before/after the scan;
  • User-friendly interface - VXscan was designed to simplify the whole scanning process to its essential core, through a powerful and simple process
  • Scan results enhancement - hole filling, smart decimation, boundary filters, etc
  • Alignment tools - highly flexible, you can simply constraint your scan using datums/entities.
  • NURBS Surfaces - easily generate NURBS surfaces for characterizing freeform surfaces for later use in your CAD software
  • Mesh Improvement - modify the 3D scan mesh, make it watertight
  • Mesh comparison - enables you to calculate both mesh-to-CAD and mesh-to-mesh deviations.
  • Geometrical entities & Cross-sections - Use your 3D scan as a reference for your design.
  • CAD import - Use your 3D scan as a reference for your design.
  • Multiple-Measurement mode - first software to seamlessly integrate both single-point touch probe and non-contact measurements into a unique and intuitive software interface.
  • Alignment - ensures more accurate results from data acquisition up to the final inspection report.
  • GD&T - sophisticated algorithms and calculation methods offer an accessible way to apply GD&T principles and practices to the inspection project.
