Reverse Engineering: Clay Models in CAD

The remodeling of scan data can be used to convert clay models into CAD data. In this post, the Mako-Technics team explains why this makes sense. And provides information about areas of application. Are you interested in reverse engineering to convert clay models into CAD data? Then you are exactly right here.

Use reverse engineering to convert clay models into CAD data

During the initial design phase, the first molded clay models usually go through various shape changes. Here, the modeller can use classic methods. There are no limits to his creativity. Creating such shapes with CAD software, on the other hand, would be very complex and time-consuming. Freely formed surfaces of a clay model can be converted into CAD data using various reverse engineering commands. Design X from Geomagic is particularly suitable for this. Or Catia with all its special functions.
