nPower Software announces the release of a new product Power ScanToNURBS

San Diego, January 23, 2012

Power ScanToNURBS imports scanned meshes into 3ds Max, and converts them into a NURBS format that can be exported to various CAD systems or rapid prototyping machines. As a plug-in for Autodesk® 3ds max®, Power ScanToNURBS is the powerful enabling tool that allows you to transfer mesh models to Autodesk® Inventor® and other CAD systems.

Power ScanToNURBS quickly and accurately converts scanned mesh data, and creates high quality, smooth surfaces, with at least G1 continuity across surface boundaries. Power ScanToNURBS works especially well with Power NURBS (which provides NURBS modeling for 3ds Max). Power ScanToNURBS facilitates working with scanned data by converting it into a format where powerful modeling operations can easily be applied. Coupled with Power NURBS, Power ScanToNURBS allows you to import scanned meshes, convert to NURBS to apply Boolean operations, filleting, blending, etc., and then export the resulting NURBS model to virtually any CAD system or rapid prototyping machine. Through this process, Power ScanToNURBS brings scanned models to life, allowing designers to import complex parts and modify them to suite their needs. See an example with our video tutorial.

Power ScanToNURBS sells for $795. It can be purchased separately, or combined with Power SubD-NURBS and/or Power NURBS. nPower products can be purchased from the nPower web store, or through certified nPower Software resellers throughout the world.

Power ScanToNURBS is based on IntegrityWare’s SOLIDS++ geometric modeling Kernel, a unique and powerful hybrid modeling system that supports Solids, Surface and Polygonal modeling. nPower modeling tools bring the highest order of surfacing, solids modeling, analysis, and tessellation technologies to the popular Autodesk® 3ds max® and Viz™ 3D design products. Power NURBS provides advanced Solids Modeling tools like Booleans, shelling and variable radius filleting that are normally found only in high end CAD systems; it also provides advanced Surface Modeling tools like high continuity blending, multi-rail sweeps, and high continuity class-A surfaces which meet the exacting standards of the automotive and aerospace industries. Intelligent Power NURBS Objects retain their parameters and update automatically through design revisions. And unique advanced tangency controls allow users to have interactive feedback and greater control over surface properties.

Engineers, designers, architects, and artists from top companies around the world like Toyota, Boeing, Microsoft, Disney, SEGA, Blizzard Entertainment, Northrup Grumman, Sony, Honda, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Whirlpool, Blur Studio, Fisher Price, Gensler, Harley Davidson, Fox Sports, Caterpillar, Johnson & Johnson, Philips, BAE Systems, SolidWorks, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, HDR, Hewlett Packard and Cannon Equipment are optimizing their design throughput with nPower Software.
