    yeah, i've done this a few times - but not recent (2yrs at least). I used to do it quitre freQ, and as I gave the Eng. Dept the "pts" it was all they needed. Somehow, we lost inventor, and are in the process of getting a new license for Pro-E , so.....

    When exporting the IGES file there are several options as to how it will be exported. Try these out to see what suits your CAD guy, and what you are trying to accomplish.

    Hello,
    My experience with AutoCad R14 and 2000 is relevent with this question. I really don't care for splines. I prefer the single points and sweep my surfaces accordingly. I use edge points on the cmm for the trim to create my lines, rads etc from these. As for the amount of time it takes to create the surfaces,,,,,no cad guy is going to rush the job. It could take a while, no matter how small or easy the job. If the Engineering dept has inventor desktop, then creating solids or surfaces from a scan is a little easier.
    Just my .02

    surfacing for your CAD guy will be very hard if your scanning with a touch trigger probe.

    Splines are better for surfacing, any programmer worth his salt would take your igs out, and surface it.

    Yeah, I scanned it and added the "as points" feature. I was inquireing if anyone knew the exact commands in Autocad to do this (is it real simple, or a long drawn out process?)
    Thanks,

    Yes, do you have a pic? THATS ALL they need. Have them connect the dots. YOu could do a scan.

    Dig'd a flow drill for the tool room, and exported it as DXF, and IGS. they want to open it and make surfaces.
    Is there a simple way of doing this (have limited autocad exp).
    Output it as points, from a specific alignment...
