Reverse engineering plug-in that works natively inside SOLIDWORKS.
 Import 3D scanner data and use it as a reference for building CAD models (SCAN-to-CAD).

We all know building parametric CAD models can be a complicated process, but it doesn’t have to be this way. XTract3D gives you access to powerful slicing, fitting, and snapping tools for reverse engineering directly inside SOLIDWORKS. Trace right on top of 2D cross sections of 3D scan data to create parametric CAD models with ease.

Work smarter, not harder

Use existing knowledge to your advantage instead of reinventing the wheel. Use scan data of existing parts as a reference for product design. It saves R&D cost and shortens the design cycle.

Simple tools for sketching

XTract3D gives you a basic toolset to solve a wide range of reverse engineering applications—from basic to complex parts, and prismatic to organic surfaces. Build a solid CAD foundation that makes everything happening downstream stable.

Xtract3D High Resolution Scan Data

Xtract3D gives SOLIDWORKS the ability to import large 3D scan meshes and point clouds. It allows users to easily work with large datasets created by 3D scanners. Import meshes that are hundreds of megabytes in size and gigabyte-sized point clouds.

Many reverse engineering software have complicated tools that are difficult to use and/or automated features that only work on limited projects. Often, they don’t work very well in real world scenarios and produce inconsistent results. Xtract3D offers a robust method to reverse engineer by giving you a basic toolset to solve a wide range of applications—from basic to complex parts. You have complete control over how you manually sketch features and elements. It’s not fancy. But it’s simple and it works.

Xtract3D Scan Samples

Use dense scan data as a visual guide for sketching CAD models in SOLIDWORKS with no lagging issues, as you turn it off and on. Whether you are sketching features from 3D meshes with millions of polygons or point clouds with millions of points, XTract3D lets you build solid features quickly and easily for a smooth, uninterrupted experience. XTract3D was built specifically to handle a variety of reverse engineering and design projects, from simple 2D sketches to complex 3D surfaces.
