Delcam’s (Windsor, ON) CopyCAD 7 offers high-quality CAD from poor-quality data, with a number of improved triangle modeling tools to make the system even more capable of producing high-quality CAD models from poor-quality scan data. The software also includes the ability to generate extruded primitives, improved creation of split lines, additional data transfer options, and an improved user interface with larger and clearer icons to make the software easier to learn and use. To repair holes with multiple patches, the software now automatically sketches a new boundary as each part of the hole is filled and so speeds up the repair process. It also is possible to improve the tolerance within a model having badly-connected triangles—without having to repair all of the individual problems first. The software has been able to generate triangle models of primitive shapes like spheres, cones and cylinders for several releases and so, for example, add internal features like bosses and ribs to reverse engineered models. This functionality has now been extended to include the generation of extruded primitives from sketched or imported profiles.
