Upgrade Power Surfacing to Power Surfacing Reverse Engineering
Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks From Power Surfacing RE older versions is an add-in reverse engineering (RE) product for SolidWorks 3D design software that significantly improves the process for reverse engineering scanned meshes, other mesh data, and SolidWorks geometry within SolidWorks. Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks has a unique set of tools to allow you to rebuild shapes from a large variety of polygonal meshes. It can import meshes from: 3D scanners, Finite Element Modeling (FEA), 3D sculpting programs, 3D printer files, other polygonal modeling tools, and online polygonal model databases. Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks has the ability to constrain to and reference underlying meshes to capture the original design shape. The Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks tools enable you to quickly define a Power Surface shape over the top of the referenced mesh. With the existing Power Surfacing tools you will be able to modify and evolve the design.

New in this version

The 5.0 release is a major upgrade for Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks. Version 5.0 automates much of the reverse engineering work flow, making Power Surfacing RE a powerful, unmatched tool for reverse engineering scanned meshes, other meshes, or SolidWorks geometry. The 5.0 version also includes many new general Power Surfacing tools (which are included in Power Surfacing RE). Here is a list of some of the major Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks features.
Automated scanned mesh conversion
New automated conversion tools greatly simplify the process of converting scanned meshes into SolidWorks geometry.
Superior accuracy
New patent pending technology allows customers to reverse engineer scanned meshes and capture / convert the fine details of the scanned mesh. Typically, capturing this high level of accuracy would create extremely large models (or even fail due to memory constraints). But with patent pending Power Surfacing RE technology, even large, highly detailed scans can be reverse engineered into accurate, editable SolidWorks geometry.
Follows curvature and mesh flow
Capturing the shape of a scanned mesh model is important, but it is also important to accurately follow the curvature and flow lines. Otherwise, creases, ridges, gullies and other features will wash out when converted into NURBS format. Power Surfacing RE uniquely follows the flow lines and features of the scanned mesh when converting it into NURBS / CAD geometry. The result is a super accurate, editable model, optimized for usage in the CAD environment.
Curvature driven surface knot density
Power Surfacing RE is highly intelligent in handling large scanned meshes. It uses patent pending technology to capture fine details, without bloating the model size. The result is an optimal, custom model based on the user's desired accuracy.
Topology Optimization
Power Surfacing RE can take SolidWorks "Topology Study" models and turn that data into usable SolidWorks solids geometry.
Semi-automated tools for finding and fixing anomalies
Even with the best scanners, the scanned meshes that are produced can have flaws and problems. Scanners may produce anomalies due to inaccuracy or scanning visibility (tears, rips, holes, overlaps, etc.). Scanned objects might also have edges or surfaces that are worn or damaged (the scanner may be accurate, but the objects themselves may be damaged); but users can restore those damaged edges / surfaces to their original, intended form using Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks. Upgrade to Power Surfacing RE 5.0 for Solidworks has automated tools to identify the problem areas in the scanned mesh, and tools to fix those problems with a minimal amount of effort.
