Geomagic Capture and Design X: Building CAD Model from Scan Data

Published on January 15, 2016.

This video demonstrates how to use 3D scan data as a reference to build a CAD model inside Geomagic Design X. The process of analyzing the construction of a product with the intention of developing a similar or an improved design is known as reverse engineering. The advantage of reverse engineering is you can capture a point cloud or mesh from a real world object and use it as a reference instead of designing from a completely blank slate.
