U.S. Military is widely adopting Rapidform

The U.S. Military is recognizing the value of 3D scanning along with reverse engineering and inspection software. Rapidform is playing a key role in the U.S. Air Force, specifically at Eglin Air Force Base to build digital models of aircraft and weapons in simulated test environments.

The U.S. Air Force also funded a study by the University of Oklahoma last year in search for the best reverse engineering software to create parametric CAD models from 3D scans.

This study offers an unbiased, expert opinion that confirms “Rapidform XOR is the only viable choice for parametric solid modeling” from 3D scans. Get the study highlights and read the report here.

Konica Minolta Design Contest Relied on Rapidform

Konica Minolta 3D Scanning Labs was looking for an innovative solution to a design challenge – developing an iPhone dock that integrates into the dash of a Toyota Prius.
Rapidform was happy to participate by modeling the Prius dashboard with our flagship reverse engineering software, Rapidform XOR. Watch the clip below to understand how Konica Minolta 3D scanned the dash.
The top 10 winners received cash prices and were chosen by both Konica Minolta and GrabCAD, take a look!
