The EinScan Pro 2X Plus allows you to 3D scan an object in a matter of minutes and create an accurate 3D model of the part. While this saves artists and engineers hours of time, they also know that this is where the real work needs to be done. The most common native workflows in our industry are all CAD-based, and a bridge is needed for scan-to-CAD workflows. You see, a CAD model is perfect, because it is only a drawing. 3D scans are different. A 3D scan represents a real object in the real world; so, it shows that object’s imperfections. These scans are sometimes extremely complex yet unfinished at the same time. So this is the biggest challenge that engineers face when working with 3D scans; if the scan is to be useful, its design must be corrected and perfected.
Geomagic Essentials allows the user to do exactly this. The user can delete redundant areas and align the coordinates of the scan so that it will work within the strictures of a CAD environment. This software also allows the use of NURBS surfacing to create perfect curvature and surfaces around the piece. Feature extraction permits the user to target specific areas and perfect their shape. Geomagic Essentials is the perfect software to prepare your 3D scan for your CAD software.
