How to create surfaces from points (3d scanner)

By ken vogel on 01 Mar 14:11 1 answer 0 comments

Hello there,

I try to calculate a volume of a room scanned with a 3d scanner from FARO. When i load the scan in ''scene'' (the program from FARO where i can look thrue the scan), i can mark scan points on each surface of the room. when i save the points i want to open them in solidworks and create 6 surfaces (to measure the volume of the room). each point has a x.y.z. reference so i think this has to be possible, right?
The file i attached is a file where i save the points to a IGES file.

Thanks a lot,
