Mesh2Surface for SOLIDWORKS 3D Reverse Engineering Plug-in
Mesh2Surface 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.
Mesh2Surface allows the user to import large scan data effectively in SOLIDWORKS in seconds, not minutes; Extract reference geometries, including symmetry plane; Align intuitively in the right position in space, to existing cad model or multiple scans; Create reference cross sections for sketching – parallel, rotational and outline; Fit precisely line arcs and complex shapes to reference section points Approximate free form surfaces with best fit surface; Reverse engineering organic and free form shapes in most accurate way; Compare the CAD models against the reference data instantly with 3D colour map; Convert free form organic shapes just with the hit of a button.
Mesh2Surface for SOLIDWORKS main features：
• Scan Data Import
• Primitives extraction
• Align scan data in space
• Align to CAD
• Free Form Modelling
• Automatic surfacing
Scan Data Import
Load data from any scanner using the industry standard STL, OBJ or PLY mesh files. For the purposes of manipulation the build-in polygon reduction function allows the user to create a mesh with suitable number of triangles without compromising the quality of the mesh.
Reconstruct quickly planes, cylinders, cones and spheres. Create the extracted primitives in SOLIDWORKS as reference geometries, surface or solid bodies.
Align scan data in space
Position the object into the world coordinate system using the extracted primitives. The interactive definition of the coordinate system allows the user to adjust the correct orientation of the object.
Align to CAD
Quick and accurate align scan data to already existing CAD models.
Free Form Modelling
Simple and efficient, the free form surfacing allows the user to reconstruct free form surface which is not possible with the standard surfacing methods. Proprietary snap-to-mesh technology allows even non-professionals to create shapes in no time – something not available in any other solutions.
Create surfaces compatible in SOLIDWORKS with just hit of a button. Mesh2Surface automatic surfacing is one of the best on the market today.
