Reverse Engineering with Verisurf

Verisurf’s 3D scanning and reverse engineering software Verisurf Reverse can generate 3D CAD models from point clouds captured from non-contact measurement methods, such as laser scanners, photogrammetry and arms (like the 3DGage). 

Included in Verisurf’s 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering Suite, Reverse creates, manages and reverse engineers point clouds that can be made into meshes and surfaces for manufacturing, inspection and tool fabrication.

By utilizing its advanced metrology tools, Verisurf Reverse creates and custom-fits lines, arcs, planes, splines, spheres, freeform surfaces, and more, even with sparse data.

Save RE Models in Numerous CAD Formats

  • IGES
  • STEP AP242
  • STL
  • CATIA V4/V5
  • AutoCAD
  • ACIS (SAT )
  • Parasolid
  • VDA

The Quick Surface option added in Verisurf 2020 allows for creating more simple, more accurate modeling from meshes, derived from scan data or STL files. Quick Surface generates complex polygonal meshes with very little button-pushing, making it easy for novice users to navigate.

To learn more about Quick Surface, watch the video demonstration:


  • Load data from any scanner using industry-standard
    STL, colored PLY, or OBJ mesh files
  • Reduce and clean up the number of polygons while
    keeping the original reference mesh for best results
  • Quad surfacing enables freeform surface reconstruction
    (not possible with standard surfacing methods)
  • Real-time fit analysis and advanced snap-to-mesh
    Technology allows novices to create shapes in no time
  • Easily create smooth, high-quality NURB surfaces on
    organic shapes with the click of a mouse button
Master 3DGage PCMM for 3D inspection

Powered by Verisurf’s industry-leading inspection software, Master3DGage’s handy, quick-mount CMM system allows easy setup for on-demand measurement and inspections anywhere on the shop floor. Use Master3DGage™ right on your machine to verify parts quickly, in process, without removing or re-positioning them.

Finish typical inspections, such as blueprint, in-process, incoming, first article and final inspections, quickly—with surprising ease and accuracy. Measurement reports are generated automatically, in industry standard formats, so you can know immediately whether parts are in or out of tolerance.

Productivity-minded machine shops seeking an affordable, best-in-class CMM will find everything they need in Master3DGage.


With Master3DGage™, simplicity and ease of use are designed right in. Even those with little or no metrology experience can get up to speed quickly. The controls and interface are easy and straightforward, so users spend less time scrolling through screens and more time making quality parts.

Align, Inspect, Report—simple, repeatable three-step process

Quickly automate alignment by picking targets on CAD features (datums).

Run the routine by probing each target on the part. The Master3DGage™ software walks you through the process with simple, step-by-step instructions.


Inspect and view in real time by manually probing or by following automated inspection plans. Easily measure features from precise single points to point clouds. Powerful software technology displays variance between the 3D model and the part.


Using the 3D CAD model as the nominal definition, the system quickly generates custom reports in industry standard formats, including GD&T constraints and color deviation maps, for clear, practical analysis.


Ultra–accurate, six-axis metrology for precise 3D inspections

Master3DGage™ features an integrated Hexagon Metrology, six-axis CMM—among the world’s most accurate—offering a remarkable measuring volume of just 1.2m. This feature provides superior dimensional control of parts, tooling, molds, castings and more.

Powered by Verisurf’s world-class, model-based software, Master3DGage™ maintains precise digital workflow, from the start of your inspection to the end. The ability to precisely pinpoint and resolve quality issues in real time helps reduce scrap, improve efficiency and boost the productivity of every machine.

What’s the bottom line? With the new Master3DGage™ you’ll do more work, with less rework—because both process and results are repeatable, even during high-volume production.

Designed and Built with Care

Verisurf automates programs and operates CMMs faster, easier and at a lower cost. It is built on a 3D CAD measurement platform that automates all types and brands of coordinate measuring machines with an intuitive 3D experience, visual object oriented programming and open standards that increase freedom of choice while reducing costs.

Learn easy online programming in “Teach Mode” or fast offline programming with most standard CAD formats (see the full list under Verisurf Basic).

Quickly create automated inspection plans, execute them and generate reports with ease. With an intuitive interface training times are minimized. Verisurf Automate makes creating probing baths on complex features easy.

Verisurf’s open 3D measurement platform strategy means inspection plans can be executed on any supported stationary or portable CMM increasing flexibility, eliminating inspection bottlenecks and reducing training and support costs.
