Explore the new mesh BREP capabilities to handle mesh files and point cloud data.
- [Instructor] When working in mesh files,…we have a few specific workflows that we can use…to get from a mesh file to a solid piece of geometry…that we can use in SolidWorks.…If we drop down real quick to the SolidWorks help…in regards to these workflows,…they give you a few different layouts…and kind of step through what the process is.…The overarching theme is your going to import…in your mesh files first, and then you're going to…convert them into mesh bodies.…If you're starting with a SolidWorks BREP body,…you're going to convert it to a graphics body,…make your modifications, and then convert it…to your mesh as the last step because…once it's a mesh, you're not going to be able…to manipulate it anymore whereas the other ones…kind of work the other way.…
So let's go ahead and open up an stl file…that I've prepared.…So in the filter search down here,…I'm going to go ahead and click on mesh files.…So in this dropdown, you also have…the Scan to 3D options available.…I don't want to use those.…I want to use the Mesh Files option.…
