RevWorks® for SOLIDWORKS® is a high-performance reverse-engineering plugin which connects portable 3D digitizers and CMMs to the familiar SOLIDWORKS® environment.
As an original SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner Solution, RevWorks introduced the concept of real-time, CAD-Driven Reverse Engineering (CADDRE™), the process of creating a 3D model in CAD from an existing physical object.
Fast, efficient, and easy to learn, RevWorks for SOLIDWORKS provides everything you need to capture accurate feature data with your portable CMM into a CAD model.
RevWorks’ statistical best-fitting technology creates optimal geometries for each feature. You can collect many sample points for a single feature, reducing data noise and surface irregularities, and resulting in greater measurement precision.
Flexible Data Capture Solutions
Collect the data you need quickly and accurately using RevWorks and the ultra-portable MicroScribe® portable CMM from the convenience of your desktop.
Large Working Volume
RevWorks' Leap Sets combined with the MicroScribe digitizer presents a cutting edge reverse engineering solution for an extended workspace without sacrificing accuracy.
Responsive User Interface
The RevWorks toolbar remembers and displays the last tools you used, even across sessions. Adjust the the toolbar size, float or dock it to maximize your screen work area.
Direct Measurement Tools
Take a wide variety of measurements from parts using direct measurement tools including depth, distance between points, circle radii, and draft angles.
Variety of Data Collection Options
RevWorks allows you customize settings using AlignmentManager™ for coordinate systems, ProbeManager™ for probe definitions, and single point or scan point mode collection options.
Best Fit Geometries
RevWorks applies state-of-the-art statistical algorithms to collected data to extract best-fit geometries representing the features you measure, resulting in greater precision.
Fast, Efficient Workflow
Easily set up and calibrate multiple probes and assess probe calibration before use.
Create specific sectional planes through a part by limiting the data to points falling within selected tolerance of a set plane.
Data is captured only when the probe crosses the collection plane, making profiles along a part surface with no edges to follow.
Visualize probes and paths to the collection plane, even when there is no line on the part to follow.
Develop and manage a variety of part coordinate systems within SOLIDWORKS®.
Produce best-fit, smooth single-patch NURBS surfaces directly from digitized point data by dragging the digitizer probe across a part surface. DirectSurf creates a smooth surface patch and optional parametric 2D profiles, allowing you to create simple infill patches quickly.
Select points such as feature mid-points, centers, intersections, corners, and even data in other sketches directly from the screen to create features. Mix existing data with live data collections.
Direct Measurement Tools
Take a variety of measurements directly from parts including depth, distance between points, circle radii, and draft angles. Like sketch features, measurements are auto-corrected for the active probe ball radius.
With CADpad’s powerful custom functionality and mouse emulation, now you can drive RevWorks actions, navigate your screen, and select tools directly from your digitizer. CADpad Grid® and CADpad Mouse® eliminate the need to switch from stylus to keyboard or mouse.
RevWorks connects several leading desktop CMMs available in today's market with the power of SOLIDWORKS, allowing users to collect data as needed.
Infinite 2 and previous
RevWorks 7.1 Release
The release of RevWorks 7.1 includes CADpad®, a powerful user interface which creates a better, more efficient user experience. For this 20th Anniversary edition, we have rebuilt the RevWorks architecture using the latest frameworks for Windows® 10 and 64-bit support to work seamlessly within the very latest SOLIDWORKS® environments. Other features in this release include:
As an original Gold Partner solution, RevWorks introduced CAD-Driven modeling to the SOLIDWORKS community over twenty years ago. Then, the notion of directly measuring physical parts into production CAD was revolutionary. RevWorks has since proven its effectiveness to thousands of clients. Today, RevWorks continues to define the standard for productivity and dependability.
