I have a surface from the ct scanner. I want to use a sphere to fit the surface to get the radius of the sphere. I want to know how can I get that.
I don't need to be exact fit. A rough one is fine enough.
..there are a few ways but, you can place a plane on your facetted data using 3 points,.. do another plane normal to it and create the 2 average arcs to get your sphere... or, use a few 3D arcs (3 points)... get a average or center from them for your sphere?
Thank you very much, Paul.
Two questions for your input:
1. Can you provide more details about the 2 average arcs? Where to create the 2 average arcs? One on the 1st plane and the other on the 2nd plane? Which points to determine the 2 arcs ?
2. Can you provide more details about getting an average or center for the sphere?
I am new to Solidworks and CAE software.
Sorry for bothering.
You should be able to place 3 points on your sphere and make them tangent to the surface.
