We’re eagerly awaiting the release of Rapidform XOR 3… here’s a sneak peak at what’s new:

Seoul, South Korea – February, 2010 – INUS Technology, Inc. (www.rapidform.com)today announced that the next major release of its flagship reverse engineering software, Rapidform XOR, will be available in April, 2010. Rapidform XOR is the only software that combines 3D scan data processing and real parametric solid modeling to give users the ability to create intelligent CAD models from point clouds and polygon meshes. It is also the only application that sends these CAD models to SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, Siemens NX, and now AutoCAD.
Rapidform XOR3 makes the process of creating engineering-grade CAD models of real world objects easier than ever.  Unlike other reverse engineering software, XOR makes real CAD features with parent-child relationships, not just surfaces that can be exchanged with CAD software.  3D models created in XOR are higher quality, easier to transfer into CAD, and are more easily edited than surface-based models. With this new release, XOR offers more than 350 upgrades to save time and increase throughput.

New features coming in Rapidform XOR3 include:
•Modeling Wizards that automate the process of creating various features, including extrusions, revolutions, sweeps and pipes. These wizards compress modeling time by up to 75%.
•Streamlined liveTransfer, XOR’s unique CAD interoperability technology.
XOR3 communicates faster and transfers more than 20 unique feature types into SolidWorks, Pro/E and Siemens NX.
•Native interoperability with AutoCAD. XOR3 adds liveTransfer for AutoCAD, so architecture, engineering and construction professionals can now create models in XOR and transfer sketches, pipes, lofts, sweeps and more directly into AutoCAD.
•A new massive point cloud processing engine.
XOR3 handles large point clouds much more efficiently, so copious data sets from today’s cutting-edge 3D scanners are no problem.
•WYSIWYG batch process designer.
Just drag and drop the commands in the order you want them to operate, and point XOR3 at a folder of scan data. It will process each scan automatically, giving you optimized mesh models without any effort.
Rapidform XOR3 will include many more improvements and major new features that will be announced upon release.  For all the latest updates, go to the Rapidform XOR3 preview site http://launch.rapidformxor.com.
