The 3D Scanning Process

Laser scanning produces a point cloud in space of the surface of the part. To make this usefull for design work or modifications requires these steps:

  1. Scan the part to generated the point cloud.
  2. Convert the point cloud to a mesh.
  3. Orientate the mesh to the correct design planes.
  4. Convert the mesh to design sketches and surfaces to generate a 3D parametric model.
