    What is Geomagic Control X?

    Geomagic® Control X is a professional 3D quality control and dimensional inspection software that lets you capture and process the data from 3D scanners and other portable devices to measure, understand, and communicate inspection results to ensure quality everywhere.

    Inspection isn’t just for metrology specialists. Control X empowers everyone to measure, understand, and make decisions about their parts faster, more often, and more completely—from anywhere.

    • Ensure quality everywhere. Bring the power of 3D scan-based inspection to more people in more places with software that makes it easy to both capture and interpret scan data.
    • Gain deeper insights beyond pass/fail. Scan parts to capture more information and leverage rich data to understand why parts are in or out of tolerance.
    • Optimize manufacturing processes. Recognize and address issues faster with insights gained from comparing scanned parts to CAD models or golden parts.

    What Can You Do with Geomagic Control X?

    Control X includes features to help you ensure quality for each stage of your manufacturing workflow including designing, manufacturing, inspecting, and maintaining.


    • Design for manufacturability.
    • Find and fix problems.


    • Identify and resolve manufacturing and assembly issues.
    • Eliminate costly scrap and rework.


    • Solve your toughest measurement problems.
    • Improve quality documentation.
    • Reduce quality control bottlenecks.


    • Assess damage, deformation, or wear accurately and consistently.
    • Predict part failure before it happens.

    Use Geomagic Control X with Geomagic Design X® reverse-engineering software and Geomagic Wrap®  3D-scanning software for a complete, scan-based design and inspection package.

    Geomagic Control X Features

    +Inspection Viewer

    The Inspection Viewer allows any contributor to analyze a project and create custom reports. The ability for any contributor to analyze and share reports across an organization ensures effective communication.

    • Stakeholders throughout the inspection cycle now have access to inspection data giving them the ability to create their own custom reports.
    • Open Projects and view data with full 3D control and viewing customization.
    • Modify or Create inspection reports with ease to review only the data needed.
    +Probing Workflow

    Large assemblies, heavy equipment and other industrial applications are easily inspected with agile powerful probing capabilities.

    • 20 new geometry probing methods with the flexibility to adapt to challenging feature construction inspection requirements.
    • Ensure fast and accurate inspection of large parts using portable CMMs. With the newly enhanced Move Device functionality, users now have the flexibility and traceability when it comes to repositioning scanning equipment.
    • Easily evaluate each probe point’s influence on inspection results with the updated probe point management system.
    +Simulated CMM Points

    Simulate real-world contact measurements on complex geometry.

    • Automate virtual simulations of anything from fixtures to contact measuring devices using simulated CMM points using your point cloud data.
    +Directional Tolerances

    Accurately identify and understand the root cause of manufacturing errors easily with per-axis inspection.

    • The XYZ components of geometries and dimensions can be individually evaluated, providing clarity on sources of error.
    • Users can now identify root cause errors by isolating each individual axis.
    +3D Sprint File Import

    Import 3D Sprint build files directly into Geomagic Control X.

    • 3D Sprint users can more easily perform metrology workflows on their printed parts by analyzing results relative to their build platforms.
    +Deviation Location

    Quickly and easily scan, analyze, and report deviation location surface defects and variations.

    • Measure major and minor dimensions of surface deviations, which provides more accurate size and location analysis.
    • Quickly identify and measure surface deviation including dents, corrosion, and other types of wear.
    • Use automatic measurements for quick and turn-key inspection.
    +Scan Processing Automation

    Create custom routines for scan processing and minimize user interaction by automatically importing and processing scan data into Geomagic Control X.

    • Use the Automation Server trigger options that provide many ways to send a collection of unmerged scan sets to the inspection project automatically.
    • Implement automated processes individually, automatically, and/or in batches.
    • Create custom scan workflows specific to scanners or routines.

    Use customizable annotation groups for clear appropriate data tailored for each user and application.

    Reduce the clutter and include only relevant dimensions, GD&T call-outs, and general annotations for each feature.

    +Airfoil Analysis
    Whether you are working on turbines, blisks, belongs, or blades,  Control X provides a fast and intuitive way to gather profile measurements including twist analysis. Create automatic or custom profile measurements.
    +Multi-Alignment Inspection

    Create repeatable inspection routines that require measurement in different alignment environments. This is especially useful when inspecting parts that could have large deformations like sheet metal or long-range applications like bowed structures.

    • Auto-create geometry and measure between features using different alignment schemes.
    • Automatically inspect the most deformed parts, like sheet metal or plastic-molded components, with repeatable setup.
    +Custom Reporting

    Easily create inspection reports to analyze your results.
