If this procedure is followed, all 38 scans will be aligned to each other prior to exporting data to post-processing software. When you bring this data into your post-processing software, you will only need to run a global registration and merge. In this case, Rapidform XOR was used and the global registration and volume merge took a total of 23 minutes. Parametric modeling was started immediately upon completion of the volume merge. Overall, this procedure will provide you the highest quality and most accurate data in the shortest time period for this type of part.
