Thor3D and Polyga announce partnership

Today, Thor3D and Polyga proudly announce their unique partnership. Their collaboration will be twofold: Thor3D and its partners will act as resellers for Polyga’s XTract3D software while Polyga, based out of Vancouver, will become Thor3D’s distributor for Calibry 3D scanners in the West Coast of Canada. Although unconventional, this symbiotic relationship will be mutually beneficial.

XTract3D is a reverse engineering plug-in made exclusively for SOLIDWORKS. The tool makes converting 3D mesh data, acquired by a 3D scanner like Calibry, into proper parametric CAD model with ease. Since XTract3D is an add-on, all the tools are native to SOLIDWORKS, so no lengthy training is necessary when first starting to use it. This software retails for $999, but customers purchasing a Calibry scanner together with XTract3D can anticipate a noticeable discount for the bundled product.

“Calibry handheld 3D scanner is a natural fit with XTract3D reverse engineering plug-in for SOLIDWORKS,” says Thomas Tong, President of Polyga. “This bundle provides a complete end-to-end solution for Scan to CAD at a very affordable price. With this partnership, our intention is to further drive the use of 3D scanning, even for small to medium sized organizations, to design better products for manufacturing.”
