The powerful Verisurf Mesh utilities allow you to create high-quality meshes for 3D printing, machine from STL, and use as nominal models for inspection. Power Mesh simultaneously can create, merge, clean up, refine, smooth, hole fill, and extend the mesh. Advanced options control mesh density and can close mesh volume. Power Mesh can create water-tight mesh, a natural first step in any reverse engineering workflow. Stitch Mesh connects discontinuous meshes along their common boundaries while [...]

When using Control X for inspection, you are usually comparing one scan file to another scan file, or a scan file to a nominal CAD file. But sometimes you may have the need to inspect or measure a one-off part without a CAD file to compare it to. This blog post will explain how to take an isolated 3D scan in Control X and take measurements from it. In the example part above we have [...]

These allow teams to analyze and make crucial decisions about their parts faster.
While many tend to use Best Fit alignments for inspection, the truth is that the alignment method may not provide the most accurate inspection results. When using a Best Fit alignment process, you are relying on the inspection software to understand the design intent and align the scan of the manufactured part properly to the nominal CAD model. If datums aren’t provided to use for alignment by the inspection drawing or PMI model, you would [...]

Let’s take a look at how reverse engineering can be used to improve ergonomics in product design. There are times when you may have the need to improve a design, but the legacy files are not available. In this case, your best option is to scan the old part and reverse engineer the CAD file. Once you have a feature-based CAD file, you can make any edits and improvements needed. That is exactly what our [...]
