ICEM Ltd., the leading developer of surface modelling, analysis and visualisation software, has announced a new standalone software product for reverse engineering applications.
ICEM RevEng enables users to efficiently handle 3D digitised data imported as individual points from tactile measuring devices, as point clouds or facet data from laser scanners, or from photogrammetry systems. In addition to standard ASCII-based and STL formats, proprietary formats from individual scanner manufacturers are also supported.
Using ICEM RevEng’s in-built quick surfacing facilities, surfaces can also be automatically generated through a user-defined patch structure. Surface models created this way can be used in other, parallel processes such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, tooling design and packaging investigation, where software that cannot support facet (scan) data or that doesn’t need Class A quality surface data is used.
ICEM RevEng is priced at Euro 16,000 (US$18,400) and will be available for customer shipments in the Autumn of this year.
