Reverse engineering 3D scanned industrial parts

Key Software Capabilities
- Design automation
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.
