    I need help making a digital scanned .igs part turned in to a solid .igs

    Hi everyone, any tips or help would be great. Thank you very much. Picture and model are here. I also have the .stl if that is better to work with.

    Hi PoolRod2...

    There were some edges not joining up when converted to a solid.
    You can download the solid file here:

    Hope this helps you out...

    Hi Ted, thank you for trying. It needs to be a complete solid, so I can pull toolpath geometry from it. This is the wireframe. Would an stl file work better for you?. I put .stl and.stp files in the latest zip. Thank you for your time.

    That file I sent should be a solid, it loaded into Solidworks as a solid...

    Hi Ted, when you open it in Solidworks, and run the mouse around it, it has trailing rectangles, not a solid. Thank you very much for trying though.

    Hmmmm...
    Well it is definitely ok in Rhino, maybe looses something in the translation.
    Try this .SAT file it appeared to import fine.

    Still no luck, thank you for the efforts, Ted. When highlighted, it looks like this.

    The file opened as a solid on my Solidworks. There's surfaces there for your toolpaths.

    If you're looking for someone to remodel this in to a "clean" lofted model you're in the realm of paying a designer for several hours of work. I do luthiery for a living.

    Hi Warren, the solid has broken surfaces as shown in the pics, they could be selected for toolpath, but they over run the areas that don't need surface cut. No true wireframes can be extracted either. Thank you for the help.

    Re: I need help making a digital scanned .igs part turned in to a solid .igs

    Hmm... when I first saw this thread, I thought you just needed someone to use JoinEdge on the four surface edges that weren't joined when importing the IGES file into Rhino.

    After seeing a few responses, it looks like we're having an issue with a multi-surface format like IGES, and a NURBs format like Rhino.

    When Rhino imports the IGES file, it's going to be a bunch of surfaces. And it sounds like you want one one smooth surface instead of many small surfaces that when joined together, form a large polysurface.

    Unfortunately, you cannot do this with just a few clicks. You're going to have to use those surface edges as guides to create a new surface in Rhino that's continuous and smooth. Even if you manage to succeed at this, it will not be 'exactly' like the imported IGES.

    As warrenb mentioned, this falls into the realm of 'Hire someone to create it for you' or 'learn how to use existing geometry as the basis for a new model'.

    If I were getting paid to recreate this, I would use some of those spiderweb-looking surface edges to create some lines along with the Duplicate Edge command, Section Command, and ExtractIsocurve Command... and then either Loft, CurveNetwork, or Patch single surfaces until I get something that resembles the original work, and then join those surfaces into a polysurface.

    It's not simple work.

    I wish I could pay someone, this is killing me,lol. I tried Catia, Solidworks, Meshcam, Spaceclaim, Freecad, Hypermesh, Designspark, Mastercam, Geomagic Design X, Solid Edge and Rhino, all I need is a solid from an stl to get true solid wireframe from. Thank you all, you guys rock for trying. Happy New Year.
