What's New in ST10: Reverse Engineering
One of the components of Convergent Modeling is Reverse Engineering. It encompasses a new tab in the Solid Edge interface that also includes the Select and Plane tools as well as Curves and Surfaces. The idea behind Reverse Engineering is that you can take 3D scan data in the form of an STL file, clean up the data, group face types by color, and then create faces over the selections. Finally, you use surfacing operations to enclose a solid. There are automated and manual options so that you can always get your work done.
