Reverse engineering sw for beginners

Reverse engineering sw for beginners

Postby davide445 » Tue Feb 16, 2016 3:38 pm

Received this we our FDM printer (an advanced model not yet on the market) and ordering today David SLS3 I'm searching for a good but easy to start reverse engineering sw.

Reading about Rhino and Geomagic but appear to be expensive and steep to learn, researched about MOI3D also appear not to be the right solution.
Our idea is to generate scans to be used by CAD, so not only polygonal modelling but also NURBS or surface, grateful for any suggestion.

Thanks for the hint, SpaceClaim appear to be in the $2500 range, any specific reason to prefer it vs cheaper options?

Also a more general question: before generating any NURBS I will need anyway as first step to generate the mesh?
Or can I generate NURBS directly from the point cloud?

Point could to nurbs, all solutions that I saw are expensive and can´t compare with what can you do manually.

Thanks.
From the 3d printing point of view, when make sense to stop at mesh and when to proceed with solid modeling.
I.e mesh can be good for FDM print and solid modeling for more production ready technology such as SLS?
