Geomagic Control X Capabilities

Control X Scan

Use Any 3D Scanner with Confidence

Control X was born to work with data from any 3D scanner. We’ve built direct interfaces to many of the most popular systems. You’re set for the future too – add any 3D scanner at any time, without having to learn another software interface.

Control X Compare

Compare Scans to CAD

Beautiful, intuitive color maps show you what is in and out of tolerance and by how much. Control X supports myriad comparison techniques, including 3D, 2D cross-section, boundary, curve, silhouette, virtual edge deviation and more. You get native interfaces with PMI for all the major CAD systems too.

Control X Align

Align the Way You Want

Control X has streamlined alignment techniques to cover every inspection scenario:

  • Automatic feature based alignment
  • Best fit alignment with constraint options
  • RPS, datum, and 3-2-1 alignments
  • Adaptive and homing alignments
Control X Inspect

Inspect Surface Damage or Wear

Control X can automatically interpolate what a scanned object’s ideal shape is and measure deviation to quantify even minor surface imperfections.

Control X comparison

Compare Scans to Golden Parts

You can scan a golden part and use it as a nominal model to compare back to. Control X treats the scanned nominal just like a CAD model because it automatically adds feature intelligence to every scan (it knows a plane is a plane, for example).

Control X Iterate

Iterate and Explore to Understand

You can make changes to any part of the inspection process at any time. Try different alignments, different measurements – anything at all – and Control X will recalculate your entire inspection project and show you updated results in an instant.

Control X Report

Clear, Interactive 3D Reports

Build reports the way you want with templates. And don’t worry if you decide to change or add something later – reports update automatically. Monitor changes over time with trend analysis. Share reports with 3D PDF, so everyone can view on their PC, Mac, or phone – no special software required.

Control X Automate

Automate the Entire Process

Every aspect of your inspection project is recorded in Control X’s model manager. Additional parts can be inspected with a few clicks – or no clicks at all, thanks to the included batch processing app that can run in parallel on multiple PCs.

Control X Measure

Measure Dimensions Instantly

Because Control X automatically recognizes features in nominal models (regardless of whether they’re CAD models or scans of golden parts), measuring dimensions in 2D or 3D is incredibly quick and easy.

Control X probe

Combine 3D Scans with Hard Probing

Get the best of both worlds – non contact scanning and contact probes – in one integrated software interface.

Use LiveInspect™ to perform walk-up inspection or pre- planned inspection with graphical and audio guidance.

Control X tolerance

2D and 3D GD&T

With extensive Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing tools, you can analyze size, form, orientation, and location of features
according to the ASME Y14.5M standard. Control X measures:

  • Linear, angular, radial, elliptical, bore depth, counterbore, countersink, and thickness.
  • Straightness, flatness, circularity, cylindricity, parallelism, perpendicularity, angularity, position, concentricity, symmetry, line profile, surface profile, runout, and total runout.
Control X air foils

Analyze Airfoils

Control the quality of turbines, blisks, blings or blades with the included airfoil analysis tools. Control X automates the measurement of:

  • Airfoil profile.
  • Leading and trailing edge position & thickness.
  • Camber line.
  • Chord angles and length 2D twist analysis.
3D scanning with Geomagic

Using Geomagic Control X with Artec 3D scanners

Paired with Artec industry-leading 3D scanning hardware and software, Geomagic Control X is the ultimate rapid, in-depth quality inspection solution.

Quick and easy to use

With fast, agile Artec 3D scanning, you can precisely capture the most complex parts up to seven times quicker than with CMM machines. Then upload to Control X and get quality results with little training using an intuitive UI and scan-native algorithms.

Inspect for 80% less

Feed high-quality Artec 3D scans into Control X and benefit from reported cost reductions of up to 80%, due to time and labor savings gained from automating data processing.

Digitize your inventory

Make future inspections faster and more regular by 3D scanning products and turning them into digital design files that can be analyzed and modified at a moment’s notice.

Contact-free inspection

Don’t risk damage, switch from probe-based CMM and target-dependent scans to Artec 3D scanning and Control X analysis, for contactless inspection that won’t mark products.

Streamline your analysis

Quickly create realistic, accurate 3D replicas of physical objects and compare these to original CAD designs in fine detail, via a single, streamlined Artec-Geomagic workflow.

An all-in-one solution

No need to pay for CAD importers, airfoil analysis tools, or mesh editing extras, send scans to Control X and you’ll have everything needed to carry out industrial-grade inspection.

Artec Studio integration

Take advantage of unique Control X macros and complete inspection tasks inside the same intuitive Artec Studio interface you use to process scan data.

Cross-Artec compatibility

As Control X is 3D scanner agnostic, the software can be used to analyze data captured by any device in the Artec range, including Leo, Eva, Space Spider, Micro II, or Ray II.
