Learn how to design using reverse engineering and convergent modeling, resulting in faster time to market
How do you design faster, resulting in a faster time to market?
With Reverse Engineering, you can:
- Digitally scan a physical product
- Use mesh clean-up tools
- Evolve the design using convergent modeling
With the rapid growth of high-resolution 3D scanners, even legacy parts designed on the drawing board can be digitally represented and modified to suit contemporary designs without complete reconstruction. Solid Edge 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. Convergent Modeling allows you to incorporate these mesh models into your everyday design workflow to create real designs. You can also seamlessly combine traditional “b-rep” solid models with triangular mesh models without time-consuming and error-prone conversions.
