ScanTo3D Overview

ScanTo3D reduces the time required to build complex 3D models of real-world items, such as sculpted objects, and anatomical items. 3D data such as point clouds and mesh (which is attained from laser scanners and other devices) can be imported, parsed, manipulated, modified, and ultimately turned into 3D solids and surfaces. ScanTo3D functionality includes the ability to:

  • Convert imported 3D scan data to a SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD model
  • Create either a surface or a mesh
  • Utilize Wizards for mesh, curve, and surface
  • Apply texture data to your mesh from imported texture files
  • Use the Deviation Analysis tool to inspect for and display deviations between the mesh and other entities created by referencing the mesh
  • Refine imported mesh and then convert to SOLIDWORKS 3D solid part
  • Import point cloud data
  • Export scanned data in multiple formats: *.xyz, *.wrl, *.stl, *.3ds, *.obj
