Delcam and Central Scanning to offer reverse engineering bundles at Develop3D Live

Special discounted prices will be offered at Develop3D Live on a combination of Delcam’s PowerSHAPE Pro reverse engineering software and Artec scanners from Central Scanning.  Visitors to the event, which is being held at Warwick Arts Centre on 31st March, will be able to order a complete reverse engineering solution based on the Artec EVA Lite scanner from as little as £15,000.

Develop3D Live offer

The system to be demonstrated at Develop3D Live will include the new Artec Space Spider 3D scanner, which has been created specifically for those who require higher precision scans to show intricate details on complex shapes and textures.  The Spider was developed to have the speed of data collection and ease of use found in the Artec EVA scanner but with higher accuracy and resolution, giving the ability to digitise the most complex industrial parts.


The latest developments in PowerSHAPE Pro allow data to be streamed directly into the software from all Artec scanners, including the capture of colour and texture.  The combination of software and scanner makes it easy to digitise complex objects in minutes, while the real-time display of the results helps to ensure that all the data required is captured successfully.


By offering a combination of solid, surface and direct modelling, together with reverse engineering, PowerSHAPE Pro provides the most comprehensive range of design techniques available in a single CAD program.  Having all the different technologies in the same package reduces the need to transfer data between multiple programs and so streamlines any modelling-for-manufacture projects that require both reverse-engineering and CAD functionality.


Automated tools within PowerSHAPE Pro provide quick and easy methods for segmenting a mesh of scanned data into primitive regions, such as planes, spheres, cones, cylinders and tori, as well as into revolved or extruded surfaces.  Primitive surfaces or solids are then fitted automatically to those regions.


Regions with complex, free-form geometry can be replaced with a single surface.  The target area can be selected with a set of easy-to-use options, while a single dialogue box gives control of the fit of the surface to the mesh.  The same technique can be used for areas with large amounts of detail, such as logos or textures.
