XTract3D: Reverse Engineering from STL (Scan to CAD)

Published on July 13, 2017.

Tom demonstrates how straightforward it is to reverse engineer any part. He uses a 3D scanner (HDI 3D scanner) for capturing measurements of a real world object that can be imported into SOLIDWORKS using XTract3D to create a parametric CAD model. XTract3D is a plugin that allows the import of high resolution scan data into SOLIDWORKS that can be used as a reference for reverse engineering.
