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.

TriMech carries two solutions to fit your Data Management need. Our products include SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard, and SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. While both manage your SOLIDWORKS design files, supporting documents and product development process, there are several things that may push you into one solution over the other.
When companies switch to PDM, there is often confusion regarding versions versus revisions. Are they the same? Do you need both? How do you increase them? Can I delete them? Can I change their style? Can there be multiple types of them? So, let’s take a minute to dive a little deeper into them.
Exciting news from Artec this week, with the release of Artec Studio 17. I am excited to share with you my favorite new additions to the software with new features and capabilities. The theme for this year’s release was adding to and expanding on all the great features that Artec added in the previous versions. Let’s look at some of my favorites.
SOLIDWORKS clients often overlook the importance of having the correct hardware to support their new 3D CAD purchase. A common question we get asked is what should be considered before buying or upgrading equipment, so we thought it would be helpful to compile all the published system requirements along with our Engineering Team's recommendations in one place. Here is the information for this year's version of SOLIDWORKS as compared to last year.

In this blog, we are going to demonstrate how to process 3D scan data using Artec Studio and Geomagic Control X. We are going to scan a control arm that has been cast. It has a machined stud on one end, a pressed-on stud on the other, and a tapped hole that we inserted a bolt into to more precisely capture the void in the threaded hole. We are using the Artec Space Spider for this application because this scanner is perfect for capturing intricate details in high resolution with exceptional accuracy. After scanning the control arm, we will be post-processing and aligning the data using Artec Studio, and creating an inspection report using Geomagic Control X.
Moving CAD files from one location to another may seem like a simple task, and it can be if you have a small number of files to move. In this case, it may be as easy as copy and paste, or “Pack and Go”, in the case of SOLIDWORKS CAD files.
However, moving thousands of documents on the other hand can be challenging. This could take weeks, or months. How will you work with a third party (Migration Team) to get this done in a timely manner and minimize the impact to production while maintaining the integrity of your data?

In this example, I used my Artec Space Spider to capture a small metal bracket. The Space Spider is a hand-held 3D scanner designed for CAD users and perfect for capturing small objects and intricate details in high resolution.
I have three scans of this small bracket and I’m going to show you how to process these using Autopilot in Artec Studio. This is an easy process because the tool does the work for you.
Given that you need a license to view files, people often wonder what license types are required for their company. Before we can get to how many licenses, you need to understand the differences between the PDM license types.
