Redesigning 3D scan data in a SOLIDWORKS assembly

mesh orientation in Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS

In this tutorial, I am going to walk through how to do some design work from a 3D scan file of a pipe cluster that I imported into Geomagic for SOLIDWORKS. Let’s take a look. The first step is to reorient the mesh so that the mesh is centered on the front, top, and right…

3D scanning tech tip: hole filling options in Artec Studio

Hole filling watertight option

Hole-filling is good practice when creating a good-looking mesh. It’s essential for 3D printing because, without a “watertight” mesh, the printing software won’t know what to print. For reverse engineering, some holes are ok if you have sufficient data to extract the geometry you need. For quality control or inspection scanning, hole filling is usually…
