A Utility for Converting Scanned Data Into Solid Models

Features & Benefits

Convert Physical Models into 3D Geometry

ScanTo3D is an indispensable tool for designers who needs to capture physical concept models, existing OEM parts, or anatomical objects and use these scanned renditions to build models. Convert extremely organic shapes to solid models. Additionally, ScanTo3D can recognize analytic shapes, such as machined parts and consumer products, and can decompose and fit analytic or non-analytic surface types to the mesh.

Capture Design Intent Quickly and Easily

  • Capture a digital rendition of a physical part or concept in SOLIDWORKS software
  • Reducing the time and resources required to build complex CAD models
  • Reduce the use of calipers or outsourcing
  • Open scan data directly into SolidWorks
  • Conveniently of scan objects right from your desktop

ScanTo3D Capabilities

Open cloud point or mesh data directly into SOLIDWORKS, dynamically section the mesh, and model directly against it using 2D and 3D sketch geometry.

ScanTo3D can import Mesh and Cloud Point file types including: .xml, .3ds, .obj, .stl, .ply, .xyz, .asc, .vda, .igs.

Mesh Preparation Wizard

Convert cloud point data to mesh data automatically, realign, remove noise, delete extraneous data, and smooth mesh data.

Surface Wizard

Convert the mesh automatically to a solid model in one step using the Automatic Creation option – or you can choose the Guide Creation option, create submeshes, and automatically fit surfaces to the submeshes.ScanTo3D
