Scan to CAD That Works Directly Within SOLIDWORKS

Mesh2Surface is a reverse engineering add-in for SOLIDWORKS that lets you convert 3D can meshes into CAD models. It provides efficient tools to generate surfaces and curves to help restructuring a professional CAD model. 

Save more than 50% on time and efforts over any other approach of doing reverse engineering in SOLIDWORKS by using Mesh2Surface add-in.

Mesh2Surface has been designed to meet the professional needs for:

  • Mechanical parts
  • Industrial design & Manufacturing
  • Automotive & Aerospace
  • Shoes
  • Goods
  • Entertainment
  • Animation
  • Toys
  • Cultural heritage
  • Healthcare
