NPower Software today announces the release of new reverse engineering software based on its Power Surfacing technology. Power Surfacing RE is an add-in reverse engineering (RE) product for SolidWorks for reverse engineering scanned meshes, other mesh data, and SolidWorks geometry within SolidWorks.
Dealing with scanned meshes can be tricky and time consuming; quite often hand editing of translated files is necessary. NPower says Power Surfacing RE can simplify the process with tools to reference and convert the scanned mesh into “standard” SolidWorks NURBS geometry. Once a scanned mesh is converted into typical SolidWorks geometry with Power Surfacing RE, users can apply the full power of SolidWorks to the data’s continue editing.
Power Surfacing RE includes mesh cleanup and preparation tools to simply the reverse engineering process. For example, users can patch/fill holes while maintaining overall surface continuity, flip faces on inverted meshes, and visually compare the distance between the original mesh and the reverse engineered result.
