Point2CAD is an indispensable software for intuitively reverse-engineering physical parts into the SolidWorks CAD environment.
With Point2CAD you can easily create parametric solid models from your physical part using a portable CMM (coordinate measuring machine).
Using the articulated arm is like using your mouse, but with the added ability to capture data live in 3D.
Define coordinate systems, probe features such as circles, slots and much more to generate the ideal model. Check your work or get guidance for defining tolerance by probing over the part using the deviation check function.

Sketch Entities: Sketch lines, circles, ellipses, splines, slots, planes and other elements with your measuring arm.
AutoSketch: Quickly sketch profile perimeters.
Probe Compensation: Automatically apply offset values to compensate probe tips.
Leapfrog: Reposition the measuring arm around larger parts.
Best-Fit Algorithms: Apply the optimal faces/entities to represent rougher surfaces.
Measurement Modes: Acquire single points or use continuous scan modes.
Deviations: Inspect and compare the part to the parametric model.
