3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering Suite
A unique product designed exclusively for pointcloud to solid model workflows.
What makes us different
Verisurf 3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering Suite
The Verisurf 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering Suite includes CAD, MEASURE, and REVERSE modules and is uniquely suited for any reverse engineering project. The suite features an extensive set of tools for collecting, editing, meshing, and surfacing pointcloud and mesh data. Verisurf is fully compatible with Mastercam enabling you to scan, measure, mesh, and model your part and then export to STL for additive manufacturing or CNC program and machine it in one user interface.

Verisurf Offline Reverse Engineering Suite includes these modules:
Many devices have their own probing and scanning software. In this case you can save money working offline. Easily import probed points, splines, scanned point clouds or meshes collected from any device and reverse engineer them into solid models with the Verisurf Offline Reverse Engineering Suite.
Optional Quick Surface Module
Quick Surface is an option that fits smooth, high-quality surfaces through Verisurf meshes that are continuous across adjacent boundaries. Resultant curvilinear surfaces are ideal for further solid modeling or downstream machining and 3D printing workflows. Click the Quick Surface icon to learn more.
Scanning Technology Overview
Stationary Structured Light3D scanning technology projects structured light patterns on a surface and uses integrated camera(s) to translate the data it returns into a 3D mesh of the item. The sensor typically remains stationary while scanning and it may be accompanied by a turntable to rotate the part to capture 360 degrees of the shape. Advantages include speed, resolution, and the ability to capture complex profiles. Verisurf excels at filtering, meshing, and surfacing the dense, 3D scan data sets produced by structured light scanners.
3D Laser Line
Scanners measure the intersection of a laser light beam projected and reflected from a surface to and captured by its integrated camera to generate 3D data. Portable CMM arm-mounted versions provide portability and high articulation during data capture while programmable CMM and robot mounted types provide repeatability and automation. They have the added benefit of switching to a rigid, contact probe that compliments the scanner by being able to measure features that cannot be seen with the scanner, therefore the combination is a very effective paring. Verisurf easily registers multiple, individual scan passes to existing CAD geometry (or to each other) prior to surfacing and creation of a 3D CAD model.
Technologies use optical sensors to track targets rigidly mounted to a handheld laser line scanner or a contact probe. Although the optical tracking sensor needs to maintain a line-of-sight with the handheld scanner these systems provide mobility, support larger working volumes, and feature excellent resolution.
Scanners are manually moved around the object and have less size constraints. These scanners utilize different scan technologies including laser lines, structured light or combinations of both. Many require alignment stickers to maintain scan data alignment, which while being a small inconvenience, it has the benefit of allowing the part to move while being scanned, and that can be very beneficial for some applications. Others can align to scanned geometry or be used in combination with optical trackers. All these scanners come with their own scanning software so we recommend saving some money with a Verisurf Offline Suite.
What about color? Scanners with color cameras can capture high-quality color information if required for visual clarity, 3D printing, or documentation. Verisurf easily manages color point cloud data and derivative color meshing so users can reap the added benefits of color data.
