Annouce a new product - Complete solution for 3D
INUS technology Inc. is pleased to announce the pre-release of
RapidForm1.3. ( see http://www.rapidform.com )
RapidForm is a powerful 3D reverse engineering Windows application
especially for 3D graphics and Rapid
Prototyping(RP). RapidForm is not a just scratch of known algorithmes.
We have developed a lot of creative algorithmes and
succesfully enhanced accuray, performance and easy of use. Although
RapidForm is strongly focused on mid range 3D
scanner users, RapidForm's powerful polygon editing functions will make
3D graphics designers be free from frustrating and
time consuming modeling burdens as well. And, for RP workers, RapidForm
provides bad polygon data fixing, thickening and
To list major features briefly, - Point cloud processing
Triangulation, Noise filtering, Sampling and etc. - Multiview scanned
Coordinate Registration and model Merging
- Polygon modeling
( following features can apply to a selected region as well )
Decimation, Subdivision, Smoothing, Remeshing, Trimming and etc -
Hole filling, Illegal data cleaner, Group operation, Analytic geometry
fitting and etc
- Polygon cleaner
Non-manifold, redundant, bad normal or self-crossing face fixing. Spike
face deleting and etc.
- NURBS curve creation
Interpolated curves on a polyhedral model Section curves of a polyhedral
model and etc.
- Supported file formats
3ds, dxf, obj, iv, VRML, ply, STL, pov( export only ) IGES 126( NURBS
curve ) - And others
Measuring( distance, angle, area, volume, centroid and etc. ), Unlimited
Undo support, Windows friendly working
environment, and etc.
- Operation envrironments
Windows 95 / 98 / NT, OpenGL
It is hard to describe RapidForm's whole capabilities in this short
message. Please visit http://www.rapidform.com, review
