HighRES Releases Reverse Engineering, Point Cloud Processing and Laser Scanning tools for Creo™

LA JOLLA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 14, 2011 — HighRES, dba ReverseEngineering.com™, a PTC Partner Advantage™ partner today announced the release of their plug-in for PTC’s Creo™ Elements/Pro, which allows users to scan faster while maintaining high quality products.

ReverseEngineering.com provides CAD integrated reverse engineering software for measurement, inspection, 3D digitizing, point cloud processing and laser scanning physical molds, models or parts.

ReverseEngineering.com’s plug-in for Creo Elements/Pro allows engineers and designers to digitize data from existing parts from within the Creo Elements/Pro environment.

ReverseEngineering.com integrates scanning hardware from Faro, Faro Edge, Romer, Romer Absolute arm, Hexagon, Leica, 3D Creator, Nikon, Baces3D, Microscribe, and Metris to digitize datum’s, lines, splines, arcs, and circles. The ReverseEngineering.com plug-in also embodies a new user interface for improved end user work flow. With the ReverseEngineering.com plug-in for Creo Elements/Pro, digitized sketch data can be extruded, surfaced or dimensioned in real time.

The new interface also supports reverse engineering sheet metal designs and 3-point leap frogging. New enhancements allow for aligning digitized parts to drawing view requirements. The align laser scan “point clouds to PCMM coordinates” allows the ReverseEngineering.com plug-in for Creo Elements/Proto work with scanned points and sketch features in the model tree. The New Digital readout display of X, Y, and Z has been enhanced for easier reading of the real time digitizer cursor position. Users can use dual screens and drag/expand the digital readout window to read coordinates from across the shop floor when scanning large parts.

New simplified lock plane point cloud processing is available through the HighRES Integrated Point Processor (HIPP)™. Users can quickly thin or profile slice complex point clouds for Creo Elements/Pro to any user required tolerance.


ReverseEngineering.com. headquartered in La Jolla, California, is the leading company dedicated to direct CAD reverse engineering and measurement software solutions worldwide. ReverseEngineering.com develops and markets plug-n-play software tool sets that accurately, quickly, and easily manage digitized data from portable and traditional CMMs, laser trackers, and laser scanners into CAD/CAM systems as easily modifiable parametric sketches. Providing what is essentially a universal front end for reverse engineering, we have eliminated the data translation issues usually associated with reverse engineering and related applications. Taking a modular approach, we provide more than 500 CAD/CAM integrated tool sets addressing any need, from entry-level to the most sophisticated CAD applications.
