Post-processing of 3D scan data is a specialist area of the 3D process and to handle large, sometimes in the hundreds of millions, points in 3D space requires specialist software and powerful hardware. Experience in how to make the transition from groups of points onward to polygons and then to a usable, often retopologised, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) surface for use in a CAD program such as Solidworks is essential. This work is as much of an art as a defined process.
Approach regarding the above varies and have saved enormous amounts of money for clients by interpreting what they require and suggesting the best approach. Often the chosen course taken is not what the client thought was originally required.
3D Engineers have three programs available to retopologise data. Like a carpenter would not arrive on site with only a set of chisels, a 3D CAD expert should not just have one program or scanner available. Having a full complement of skills, software and hardware to meet most post-processing needs, 3D Engineers are ideally placed to complete your project.
3D Engineers can post-process your data or we can undertake to scan ourselves.
