  • Exported MESH scale issues

    I just learned that our engineering team is having issues overlaying a scan to their CAD in Solid Works. Has anyone seen this before? The scan was exported as a MESH in a STL file. This has been the only way to export data and allow it to be opened in any other program. Regular point clouds will not open for us. I do npt know if it something on my end or if it is out of my control.

    Hi Gsus#1
    The Mesh is exported in the units in which it was created. You can also select alignment when exporting. If there is a scaling issue it would be helpful to check the import settings of your application.

    Did you know, you can import a CAD model into PC-DMIS and align the Mesh to it? Then you can create a Mesh Colormap to do the comparison.

    Kind Regards,

      Good morning uburton
      I believe engineering has figured it out by them specifying what units, at least I hope so since I have not gotten word they are still having issues. I am not sure what you mean by checking my import settings of the application? In this case it was better for me to do a scan and send it to engineering rather than a Colormap.

      Thank you for help and feedback.
