The Geomagic line of haptic devices includes Geomagic® Touch™ and Geomagic® Touch™ X. Geomagic haptic devices are motorized devices that apply force feedback on the user’s hand and support a range of motion equivalent to hand movement pivoting at the wrist, allowing them to feel virtual objects and producing true-to-life touch sensations as user manipulates on-screen 3D objects. For 3D modelling and design, surgical training, virtual assembly, and other procedures that require a higher degree of precision and a realistic sense of touch, Touch and Touch X devices are an easy-to-use, affordable option that pairs perfectly with Geomagic Freeform® for the perfect design interface.
The Geomagic® Touch™ is a mid-range professional haptic device. It is the most cost-effective haptic device and it is ideal for its manoeuvrable and handy features.
You can use Touch haptic devices in diverse applications including simulation, training, skills assessment, rehearsal, virtual assembly, robotic control, collision detection, machine interface design, rehabilitation, mapping, and more.
Geomagic® Touch™ X
For 3D modelling and design, surgical training, virtual assembly and other procedures that require a higher degree of precision, Geomagic® Touch™ X is an easy-to-use, ideal option providing more-precise positioning input and high fidelity, force-feedback output beyond the boundaries of the standard Touch.
Touch X delivers expanded true-to-life sensations with a more fluid feel and lower friction.
Its durability, affordability and accuracy make the Touch X haptic device ideal for commercial, medical and research applications, especially when compactness and portability matter.
When used with OpenHaptics toolkit, Geomagic Touch allows developers to rapidly design and deploy haptic programs, do mash-ups into existing applications, try out new ideas, and create haptically enabled products.
The OpenHaptics® Developer Edition enables software developers to add haptics and true 3D navigation to a broad range of applications including 3D design and modeling, medical, games, entertainment, visualization, and simulation. This haptics toolkit is patterned after the OpenGL® API, making it familiar to graphics programmers and facilitating integration with OpenGL applications.
The OpenHaptics toolkit supports the range of 3D Systems haptic devices, from the low-cost Touch™ 3D stylus device, to the Touch X™ haptic device.
Geomagic®, now part of 3D Systems Corporation, is a leading provider of software and devices which empower you to design and manufacture in new ways, freeing you to innovate and create like never before.
Geomagic scanning and design software solutions, such as Geomagic Freeform®, are used to capture and model 3D content from physical objects, organically sculpt complex shapes, and prepare products for manufacturing.
Haptic devices as Geomagic Touch® (formerly Sensable®Phantom® Desktop) simulate the sense of touch in a digital environment. Haptic technology is even used in applications ranging from surgical simulation to virtual reality as well as a range of research and robotic applications.
Geomagic offering includes reverse engineering and inspection software, which allow you to build surfaces and CAD models starting from cloud points collected by using laser 3D scanners or probing measurement tools.
Geomagic’s software and devices are used by world-class customers in a wide variety of industries and areas of applicability.
