The company’s reverse engineering solutions can be used for high-volume point cloud acquisition and management. Users can convert to a mesh, surface or solid model that can be used directly for manufacturing or inspection purposes. According to the company, AutoSurface can use meshes to create surfaces and boundary curves with just a few user commands. The result is a comprehensive collection of surfaces, the number of which automatically adjusts according to the complexity of the mesh and the desired level of surface detail.
AutoSurface is automatic with no curve network required. Users can import points, point clouds or STL meshes and get the surface model. All shapes, primitives, free forms and open and closed volumes are supported in reverse.
The company’s software tools facilitate the entire product cycle of scanning, meshing, auto-surfacing, solids generation, machining and inspection—all within a single application and a single file.
Also included in the company’s reverse engineering solution are a broad set of tools for clean-up, organizing, filtering, projecting and other tasks. Originally developed to compare complex aerospace parts to CAD models, the software is now used for reverse engineering, model-based tool building and inspection.
