Jim Clark, Vice President of Strategic Marketing for Metris USA added “We are glad to offer Rapidform software to our customers. Our laser scanner data is an open system for any 3rd party software but we anticipate that XOR will be a strong addition, offering the optimal solution for building CAD models from scan data. Metris’ broad data-collection capabilities ranging from industrial CT to 3D scanners to touch probes fit well with Rapidform’s strengths. The CAD Correct function within XOR will be of particular use to our customers engaged in sheet metal stamping and tooling.” CAD Correct is an innovative tool to quickly adjust an original CAD model to correspond with 3D scan data of the tool after hand-working.
