Mesh2Surface: How to Reverse Engineer Organic Surfaces (Scan-to-CAD)

Published on March 26, 2018.

A quick tour of how to use Mesh2Surface reverse engineering plug-in for Rhino 3D CAD modeling software. It’s a great tool for using 3D scan data captured from a non-contact 3D scanner and use it as a reference for creating a CAD model. In this example, we use Mesh2Surface to get 3D measurements off a digital 3D model of a worn piston to create the CAD model. A commercial seat of Rhino including Mesh2Surface is under $1,600 USD, making it the most affordable reverse engineering solution we carry.
