    CMM Reverse Engineering of a surface

    Alex Smith

      Dear Solidworks,

       

      I have some tooling which i would like to make duplicates of, using a 3 axis milling machine.

      The tooling is approx 50mm x 30mm and I have point cloud data for it from a CMM using a CMS laser.

       

      Please could you give me some advice on how to surface the point cloud so I can export it into a CAM package?

      Any advice on which CAM package to use with your software would also be very helpful.

       

      Many thanks,
