Automated Software Fills Holes And Prepares Model For 3D Printing

Sometimes the shape of an object prevents the easy 3D scanning of its entire surface. In these cases the resultant 3D model will have holes. Filling these holes is an often time consuming process and when automated can yield imperfect results, smoothing over details that existed in the physical object, and producing an inaccurate 3D […]
