Rapidly Create CAD Models from Physical Objects

Traditionally, many industries use scanned 3D data as part of their design processes. In the past, this has required a time-consuming, and sometimes complicated process. Irregular shapes, in particular, required extensive reverse engineering so that they could be used for 3D printing, mold design, analysis, or other uses. NX allows you to bring the scanned data in as facets, so there's no need to map surfaces, create solids, or do any other manual shape creation. You can scan your data and immediately begin building supports for 3D printing, creating molds based on the shape, including it in an assembly, analyzing it, or performing any other operation that you would do with CAD data.
