I’ve been trying for the life of me to get a scan into inventor.
My application is industrial mechanical design, basically taking scans of existing features - Pipework, Structural members etc . I have a 3D model of a building and would like to overlay scans on it of all the nitty gritty details I don’t have drawings for, would save me measuring it.
What do I have to do to the mesh before importing it to inventor ? Surface it somehow ? Inventor freaks out with so many faces, need some way to retain the detail ( So no reducing faces etc ) and turn it into a usable file.
I’ve tried Mesh Enabler plugin, that freezes inventor if its a normal room size scan.
Is there some feature I can use in 3DS max ?
I have the choice to use either Skanect or canvas also have the full product design suite at my disposal as well. I’d rather not use Scan to Cad service as that would get pricey with the amount of scans I want to be able to use.
