SOLIDWORKS Tutorial - SOLIDWORKS and Scan Data

SOLIDWORKS has added numerous tools over the years for dealing with the importing and reverse engineering of scan data. In this video, we will look at some of the tools that we can use to create a full history tree to recreate the file in SOLIDWORKS plus tools to tell us how much deviation we might have from the original STL file. We can create a face, plane or an axis based on our selection of mesh data. We can slice the part and gather cross section sketches as well. We won’t have to guess about how close we are to the original scan data. We can turn the mesh data into parametric, solid features that we can use in our future designs.
