Today, many boat’ hulls that are designed from different CAD software contain connectivity errors, such as holes, gaps, overlaps, bumps, patch singularities, tangency defect, etc. These problems disallow the “offsetability” of the hull’s surface. This article will show you how it is possible to use reverse engineering tool to transform a tesselated surface into a proper surface. It is also suitable for STL and Scan model. […]

One of our customer runs CFD Analysis on Boats. The software is using provides STL outputs. A STL model is a lightweight representation that only contains triangles. It is mainly used for 3D printing and also by some 3Dviewer. Our customer contacted us because he needed to transform his scan into a surface. This article will explain you how we can transform a scan into a surface using automatic feature in CATIA. […]
