Reverse engineering add-in for SOLIDWORKS® for converting
3D scan meshes into CAD models

What is mesh2surface?

Mesh2Surface delivers powerful tools inside SOLIDWORKS for transforming scan data into parametric or surface CAD models. Natively integrated in the SOLIDWORKS, Mesh2Surface add-in allows you to work seamlessly in a familiar environment. Watch the video below to see mesh2surface in action.


Scan Data Import


Load data from any scanner using the industry standard STL, OBJ or PLY mesh files. For the purposes of manipulation the build-in polygon reduction function allows the user to create a mesh with suitable number of triangles without compromising the quality of the mesh.


Symmetry plane


Automatic detection of symmetry plane with colour map analyser. Additional manual adjustment controls for best results.


Fit 2D Sketch entities


Extract lines, arcs and circles from the section planes as best fit primitives. Quickly connect or fillet with simple brushing operations.


Automatic surfacing


Create surfaces compatible in SOLIDWORKS with just hit of a button. Mesh2Surface automatic surfacing is one of the best on the market today.


Interactive selection


Simple to use tools to quickly extract areas of interest. Magic wand, brush and free form selection allows the user to identify the areas that represent features or free form surfaces


Align data in space


Position the object into the world coordinate system using the extracted primitives. The interactive definition of the coordinate system allows the user to adjust the correct orientation of the object.


Fit Surface


Select area of interest and let the software to approximate the selection with a free form surface. The resulting surface is extended so it is suitable for trimming. The real-time deviation colour map instantly shows the quality of the surface. Automatic option allows the user to create surface as close as possible to the reference mesh.


Primitives extraction


Reconstruct quickly planes, cylinders, cones and spheres. Create the extracted primitives in SOLIDWORKS as reference geometries, surface or solid bodies.


Cross sections


Interactive sectioning allows the user to extract reference points for 2D Sketching. Align the section plane to extracted primitives, standard SOLIDWORK reference geometries or CAD faces of existing surface or solid bodies.


Free Form Modelling


Simple and efficient, the free form surfacing allows the user to reconstruct free form surface which is not possible with the standard surfacing methods. Proprietary snap-to-mesh technology allows even non-professionals to create shapes in no time - something not available in any other solutions.


Deviation Analyser


Control the accuracy of your reconstruction with the efficient distance colour map. Compare the CAD model against the reference mesh at any time of your process. The deviation analyser works with any SOLIDWORKS body (surface or solid) and compares the reference scan data with almost instant speed.
