Polyga XTract3D SOLIDWORKS Add-In


Polyga Xtract3D & SOLIDWORKS are a perfect fit!

Polyga Xtract3D is the perfect reverse engineering tool for organizations that use a Polyga 3D Scanner and SOLIDWORKS. 

Polyga Xtract 3D is a 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).


New Features & Improvements v1.3.1.1

  • Patch will bring the most stable document management and rendering system we have ever built. Reeningeered the internal structure and memory system to smooth your workflow and minimize crashes and error messages.

  • Improved the behavior of the Orient Mesh feature to provide selected plan to plan rotation in an intuitive way. 


Back to Basics

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.

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.

The XTract3D Way...

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.

We focus on a robust method to reverse engineering 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.

Work in a Familiar Environment

XTract3D is a toolbar that works natively inside SOLIDWORKS. Import your 3D mesh data output from a 3D scanner and get straight to work with little or no training. XTract3D works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS to enhance its sketching tools.

XTract3D tools behave like they’ve always been a part of the SOLIDWORKS platform. With all the tools you need for CAD modeling in one place, it makes work more productive.

Desktop Engineering Selects XTract3D as Editor’s Pick

One XTract3D characteristic is a pleasant surprise: Simplicity. It isn’t loaded with features that make doing the job complicated. It’s not like your word processor’s toolbar with a clutter of universally understood icons that you have no idea about what they do. It simply has the small set of tools that you need to sketch out a solid from 2D cross-sections of scanned data to create a stable model that’s ready for SOLIDWORKS.
