The Challenge

This hard to find specialized scultpting tool needed to be replicated for the sculptor. The surface geometry of the tool is difficult to CAD from scratch and the serated edge is very fine and difficult to scan.

The Solution

The tool was 3D scanned as a mesh model to capture the surface geometry of the object.

The mesh model is imported into CAD to reverse engineer the part and create a 3D solid model and the serated edge is modelled in CAD.
