Learn how to manually edit a mesh using the Mesh Edit tool.
- [Instructor] One of the other scan to 3D features…that I want to highlight is the mesh edit feature.…This is pretty simple and basically works…as a move body feature.…Go up to tools, scan to 3D, and mesh edit.…It gives you a couple manipulation methods.…You can move/copy the mesh or you can scale offset the mesh.…So I'm going to select this mesh…and you can see the triad shows up here.…So I can start rotating that if I want,…I can drag it out in any direction,…I can use the X, Y, Z coordinate system to move it around,…just like I would using move copy body feature,…I can rotate it, again, in any direction…that we want to rotate it in.…
If I want to scale it,…I can also scale it up or try and offset it.…So if we zoom in here you can see how…the offset essentially scales it.…But using offset surfaces, so it shrinks it in here.…Notice how it eats away at the surface there.…So any of these are good options.…I'm just going to move this forward and hit okay.…
And now I've manipulated it.…Now notice though,…there's no feature here in the feature tree,…
