Reverse Engineering: Seamlessly scan, edit, and produce parts
In conjunction with powerful 3D design tools, Solid Edge delivers smart functionality to work with mesh, or triangle-based data. Bodies can be imported from other systems, be digitally scanned, or be products of a generative design analysis. All of these come in as a mesh of triangles (or facets) and in many cases require further design modification.
Solid Edge ST10 provides intuitive mesh cleanup tools to remove any errors that may have resulted from the import process, allowing designers to obtain a workable set of triangles.
Once you have a sound mesh, regions can be identified and created, and those regions can be further extracted as surfaces and edited using traditional surface modeling tools.
