Reverse Engineering solution
POWERFUL POLYGONAL TOOLS
Create polygonal meshes of 3D scans in real timeEfficient meshing with high quality and precision in real time.
Repair and optimize imperfectionsIndispensable tool for 3D scanning to fill holes, smooth and rebuild surfaces, clean boundaries, recover sharp edges, make surfaces watertight, and more.
Modify polygonal modelsExtrude boundaries, offset surfaces, reconstruct fillets, perform boolean operations between meshes or with CAD models, and more.
Curve networks and surface patches
Select features like sharp edges, boundaries and fillets to generate surfaces automatically.
Generate accurate, smooth, and continuous surfaces
Tools to handle accurate fitting of surfaces is key when reverse engineering high end solid models. Visualize the accuracy of your fitting.
Transfer surfaces to your CAD/CAM solution
Export NURBS surfaces to standard CAD/CAM formats, such as IGES or STEP files, for further processing.
Create sketches from digitized models
Define sketch planes from standard or user-defined planes, and extract outlines by slicing cross-sections of a polygonal model or extracting its silhouette edge.
Create sketch entities and dimensions
Fit parametric sketch entities (arcs, lines, circles, and splines) to the sketch outline, and add dimensions and relations as constraints for the entities.
Transfer PolyWorks sketches to your CAD solution
Import sketches in yout solid modeling CAD software using PolyWorks add-ins for CATIA, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, and Inventor.
