Geomagic Receives NIST Validation

November 15, 2010

Research Triangle Park, NC- Geomagic’s reverse engineering and 3-D inspection software has been validated by the  National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The test verifies accuracy of features in the company’s software for a geometry used in Geomagic Studio 12 and Geomagic Qualify 12. NIST is accepted and recognized as an indicator of accuracy for technology and in setting and testing technological standards.  

The evaluation covers least-squares fitting methods in both Geomagic Studio and Geomagic Qualify. It was tested on 240 datasets representing geometry types including lines, circles, spheres, cylinders and cones.

“This achievement reassures existing and new customers of our continued commitment to excellence in the field of 3-D reverse engineering and inspection,” CEO Ping Fu said. “It also reflects the constant advances in technology that Geomagic’s software engineers achieve almost on a daily basis.”
