Anyone have experience/knowledge with scanning parts into a 3D model?
Looking for recommendations, experiences (good/bad), quality of files versus expectations, etc.,...
One example would be Geomagic (http://www.geomagic.com/en/products/capture/overview)
My experience is similar to Michael's, although surely not as broad.
Geomagic is the way to go. If I had the task today, I would go find somebody that does it all the time. I waste way too much time fiddling with point clouds and trying to get it perfect.
(have I talked to you about FIRST robotics yet?)

I've researched working with scan data a little, did some simpler stuff fairly well, but don't know enough about it.
My question is, and it will probably show my ignorance, why aren't the surfaces obtained or created in "studio" satisfactory for model creation? Or is it that your ultimate goal isn'ttotal accuracy with the scan data, but rather a parametric model that can be modified further before the design is complete?
