This guide is intended for users who need to become quickly familiar with the product.

This overview provides the following information:

Quick Surface Reconstruction in a Nutshell

Quick Surface Reconstruction easily and quickly recovers surfaces from digitized data that has been cleaned up and tessellated using the Digitized Shape Editor product. 

Quick Surface Reconstruction offers several approaches to recover surfaces depending of the type of shape: 

  • Organic shapes, i.e. free form surfaces, without features such as cylinders, fillets, planes, etc.
  • Mechanical shapes (plane, cylinder, sphere, cone).

Thanks to Quick Surface Reconstruction tools that analyze curvature or iso-slope properties, users can easily create mesh segmentations in pertinent surfaces area. Quick Surface Reconstruction includes its own quality selecting tools.

The Quick Surface Reconstruction  user's guide has been designed to show you how to reconstruct surfaces using these powerful tools. We recommend that you go through the "Getting Started" chapters first, to learn more about those working methods.
