I have a question. A potential client has request I created a 3-D CAD model of a part that was an original concept by a model maker. They need a feature-based SW part file.

As the file will be produced by a laser scan service, it will most likely need to be imported using Scanto3D (SolidWorks Office Premium 2007). What file type should I request from the company providing this scanning service? What is the least problematic file type to import into SW from a scanned part?

Are there scanners that can produce a surface or solid model instead of cloud pt. data or STL format?
