Our expertise dates back to 1996, when our team helped to create the first hand-held 3D laser scanner – 3DScanners ModelMaker. This invention won the European IST Grand Prize for being the best and most accurate scanner in the industry.
The ModelMaker scanner is still well known today, holding the new name ‘Nikon ModelMaker’.
Included with the scanner was the software KUBE: it was used to drive the 3D laser scanning and the post-processing of the data, making the package one of the most intuitive and easy to use in the market. Our team was responsible for almost all of the activities related to the software from creating accurate point clouds to generating optimised results.
“Thanks to the requirements on my position, I had the opportunity to visit many customers and understand their needs when scanning physical objects. 3D Scanning is a great step in the whole pipeline, but it is not on its own – you need to do something with the scanned data. This helped me to understand what people expect and gave me the chance to apply this in development of our products. Based on all this experience, we are happy to provide our products the way they are – simple, easy to use, fast, accurate and efficient.” – Kostadin Vrantzaliev
Our first product:
In 2014, the head of the original KUBE development, Kostadin Vrantzaliev initiated a new venture. The team created Mesh2Surface as a plug in for Rhinoceros, one of the most versatile of all 3D modelling software.
A few years later in 2019, KVS Ltd launched a new standalone application for 3D Reverse Engineering: QUICKSURFACE. This efficient and highly accurate software is a complete reverse-engineering solution for converting 3D scan polygonal meshes of digitized parts into accurate digital parametric CAD/CAM designs. The software offers intuitive tools for Hybrid Parametric Modelling for both Organic and Prismatic Shapes and it is recognized for the best 3D Hybrid Reverse engineering software.
Mesh2Surface for SOLIDWORKS
In 2021, KVS launched another Reverse engineering solution – Mesh2Surface for SOLIDWORKS. This is a reverse engineering add-in for SOLIDWORKS that lets you convert 3D scan meshes into CAD models. It provides efficient tools to generate surfaces and curves to help reconstructing a professional CAD model, directly integrated in the SOLIDWORKS.
QUICKSURFACE and Mesh2Surface have thousands of customers all over the world, including Nike, Pandora, NASA, Toyota, Haribo etc.
“We are the bridge between 3D scanning and manufacturing” – Kostadin Vrantzaliev
