3D CAD files of legacy industrial components are often not available — or never existed. 3D scanning is a convenient way to digitize such physical objects. However, manipulating the scanned geometry can be time-consuming using traditional design tools.

In this nTop Live, Alejandro Carcel Lopez, Application Engineer at nTop, shows you how to streamline the post-processing of 3D scanned geometry using nTop. He gives tips on how to modify the legacy design for lightweighting and automatically generate manufacturing tooling.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Lightweight 3D scanned legacy geometry using shelling and latticing operations
  • Automate the design of packaging or mold tooling for manufacturing
  • Export your designs in a file format used for traditional CAD systems

This nTop Live is the first in a series on Reverse Engineering applications.
