Reverse Engineering

• Reverse engineering of geometrical entities (spheres, cylinders, planes)• 3D modeling
• Faster and more accurate reverse engineering of large mixed parts (geometrical and freeform) when used with 3D scanner


The MaxSHOT 3D comes with VXelements, which powers our entire fleet of 3D scanning and measurement technologies. It combines all the essential tools you need for your data acquisition process into a user‑friendly, simplified and sleek working environment.

VX Model: Scan-to-CAD software module
VXmodel is a post-treatment software that directly integrates into VXelements and seamlessly allows to finalize 3D scan data for use directly in any CAD or 3D printing software. VXmodel provides the simplest and fastest path from 3D scans to your CAD or additive manufacturing workflow.

VX Inspect: Inspection Software Module
VXinspect is an intuitive and powerful 3D inspection software designed for manufacturing companies conducting first article inspection (FAI) or quality control. Directly integrated into VXelements™, Creaform’s 3D software platform and application suite, VXinspect provides the simplest integration of probing and scanning measurement capabilities.
The combination of Creaform technologies with VXinspect offers the ideal solution for quality control in shop floor conditions. The software features all the functionalities required by pre-production control or when setting up a high-efficiency measurement sequence to inspect multiples parts. With its intuitive interface, it is the best solution for all inspection workflow with no compromise on measurement quality and GD&T requirements.
