Example: Expert Project
In this page will be explained how to scan a project in Expert mode. This kind of project has no wizard, so the only information required for creating the project is the general information section and the CAD selection.
As no information has been provided, in this project there are no fixed steps, the user can scan any object in any order.
In this demo project, an upper jaw, and two dies have been scanned, aligned and meshed.
It is not necessary to follow the order of operations of this demo; still, it is suggested to align the items before meshing them
To start scanning click on the Scan Button. The software will ask the user to select the type of object to be scanned and its position. It is also possible to add an extra element to this scan that will always be connected to it.
Here is our scan definition:
Once the profile has been selected the upper model scan can be started as it were already an healthy part.
Place the model on the model holder and click the Scan Button. Once the scan is finished the result will be shown.
Also in the Expert project, the steps are divided into different moments, by clicking the next button the edit mode activates.
Edit or trim the model using the available tools and click next. For detailed information on all the available options in this step visit the Edit Tools page.
In the Expert project, it is possible to use the multi-die, since the user needs to tell the software which items will be scanned.
To start the scan, select the items to be scanned and way you wish to scan them (with multi die or not):
We've used the multi-die, so the dies will be separated automatically and can be aligned to their reference.
Since this project doesn't have a structure, the software cannot start the alignment automatically. The user needs to select the items to align and their reference.
All the items are now in position and the user can start editing the images for mesh generation.
The reference editing is very important because it avoids exporting double surfaces to the CAD and consequential errors during design.
In Structured projects this step is completely automatic.
To delete double surfaces using an automatic tool, select both dies in the list, holding control, right click on the list and select Remove From -> Healthy.
Once all reference images have been edited the mesh can be generated.
Since the scanned items have been selected at the beginning of each scan, the meshing profile will be selected automatically.
To then Export the generated meshes, just click on the CAD button in the lower bar.
