Major sporting goods manufacturer needs a CAD model of an existing part. The results were a hit!

3D Scanning to 3D CAD Modeling

On this project, our customer wanted a solid 3D CAD model built using 3d scanned data from an original golf club. It was also requested that some of the features found on the original part were removed during the CAD modeling process. In the photos pictured here, the original scanned golf club can be seen along with the finished CAD model. Notice that the “slotted” features on the face of the club were not included on the final model. This was accomplished through mesh editing. 3D Mesh editing is just one of the many tools that can be used in our specialized 3D modeling software. In this case, feature editing took place on the mesh data before the solid model was constructed.

Other CAD Modeling Tools:

Other traditional CAD modeling tools are also built into the software. Using these types of tools, such as:

  • Extrusions
  • Revolves
  • Sweeps

new features can be created or existing features can be edited. Utilizing 3d scanning and this type of specialized engineering software, we can create solid CAD models from virtually any real world object!
