See what Mesh2Surface for SOLIDWORKS® can do for you

Not like regular 3D CAD modelling (aka forward engineering), reverse engineering requires a different workflow. Check these features that you might not get from your caliper.

Scan Data Import

Load standard STL, OBJ or PLY files from any 3D scanner. The built-in polygon reduction function allows users to optimise a mesh with suitable triangle number without compromising the quality.

Interactive Selection

Intuitive tools to quickly extract areas of interest. Magic wand, brush and free form selection allow the user to identify areas representing features or free form surfaces.

Primitives Extraction

Quickly reconstruct planes, cylinders, cones and spheres. Create the extracted primitives in SOLIDWORKS® as reference geometries, surfaces or solid bodies.

Symmetry Plane

Automatic detecting a symmetry plane with colour map analyser. Additional manual adjustment controls for best results.

Align Scanned Object 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.

Cross Sections

Interactive sectioning allows the user to extract rerefence points for 2D Sketching. Align the section plane to extracted primitives, standard SOLIDWORK® reference geometries or CAD faces of existing surface or solid bodies.

2D Sketch

Extract lines, arcs and circles from the section planes as best fit primitives. Quickly connect or fillet with a simple "brushing" move.

Fit Surface

Select area of interest and let Mesh2Surface do the heavy lifting! The resulting surface is extended so it is suitable for later trimming. The real-time deviation colour map instantly shows the quality of the surface. Automatic option allows the user to create surface as close as possible to the reference mesh.

Free Form Modelling

Quad surface allows the user to reconstruct free form surfaces which are 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.

Automatic Surfacing

Create CAD surfaces compatible with SOLIDWORKS® with just a single click. Mesh2Surface's automatic surfacing is one of the best on the market today.

Deviation Analyser

Control the accuracy of your reconstruction with the efficient distance colour map. Compare the CAD model against the reference mesh at any time of your process. The deviation analyser works with any SOLIDWORKS® body (surface or solid) and performs with an instant speed.
