RevWorks for SOLIDWORKS

Reverse Engineering Power

CAD-Driven Modeling

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.

Best-Fit Technology

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

Microscribe Digitizer

Desktop Convenience

 Collect the data you need quickly and accurately using RevWorks and the ultra-portable MicroScribe® portable CMM from the convenience of your desktop. 

axis-revware

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. 

Microscribe Digitizer

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.

Microscribe Digitizer

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. 

revware-ruler

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.

SnapScan™

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.

revworks-computer-software-cad

Alignment Manager™

Develop and manage a variety of part coordinate systems within SOLIDWORKS®.

icon-black-check

Align parts to any SOLIDWORKS plane.

icon-black-check

Create multiple part alignments and switch between them during a digitizing session.

icon-black-check

Use LeapSets to maintain a single alignment coordinate system while moving the digitizer.

Microscribe Digitizer

DirectSurf™

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.

revworks-computer-software-cad

Screen Mode

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. 

revworks-software-laptop-versatile-measurement

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.

Integrated CADpad®

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.

Flexible Integration

Multi-device connectivity

RevWorks connects several leading desktop CMMs available in today's market with the power of SOLIDWORKS, allowing users to collect data as needed.

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.
