    Missing areas in a 3D scan can result from shiny or reflective surfaces or just areas that the scanner can't get a line of sight to. A good example would be on this jet ski, the underside of the lip of the ski. In this article, we are going to look at the options in Artec Studio to resolve this problem.


    Are the 3DEXPERIENCE CAD Capabilities the same as SOLIDWORKS Desktop?

    June 30, 2022

    With the advent of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, 3D designers now have options for day in day out full 3D CAD under the flag of Dassault Systèmes. For Windows-based desktop modeling, SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD provides powerful, easy-to-use modeling tools in a clean, dedicated CAD environment. For browser-based modeling, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers familiar tools in a broader environment optimized for collaboration and cloud data management. But how does the cloud CAD experience compare to the desktop experience? How similar are the tools? How easy or feasible would it be to transition from one medium to the other?

    The Bookmark Editor is best correlated to File Explorer for anyone that’s used a PC environment for the last 20 years, which is common amongst us SOLIDWORKS users of many years. Having visited many clients, I have seen grand, complex folder paths with specific files choreographed to populate unique directories. One would browse to a particular folder based on a set structure for release of various products. With a well-designed structure, finding a file usually is very quick.

    How to choose the right electrical design software package

    June 22, 2022

    Electrical schematic design tools fill a vital niche in the engineering environment. Falling somewhere between pure electrical and mechanical design, they allow engineers to communicate crucial system-level wiring specifications to technicians, vendors and other downstream project stakeholders. Recognizing the importance of this facet of production, SOLIDWORKS provides several solutions to allow multidisciplinary teams to work together to achieve their design goals and milestones efficiently. Choosing the right tool for your business comes down to a few specific factors we’ll explore in this blog.
