Hi All,


We are using a Roland MDX-40 scanner/rapid prototyper withSolidworks Office Premium. The scanner touches the surface of anobject with a needle to generate meshes. I am looking for a simpleprimer of what one does from the starting point of having a scan. Iwould like to bring the image into Solidworks and manipulate it,but am not sure of the process to complete on the mesh to make itinto a form that Solidworks can manipulate (and by manipulate, Imean trim unwanted scan areas, adding features, etc.). Can anyonegive me a simple run through?
