Construction

Introduction:

Unlock the potential of CeConstructor to digitize object features directly as parametric CAD geometries and seamlessly integrate them into your CAD projects. Here’s how:

Step 1: Preparation

Before you dive into the CAD construction process, ensure your cameras and probe are correctly calibrated. If they’re not, refer to our tutorial videos to guide you through the process.

Step 2: Accessing the Construction Module

Navigate to the construction module located in the sidebar to initiate the digitization process.

Step 3: Initiating CAD Construction

The CAD construction workflow encompasses three stages:

  1. Sketch plane creation.
  2. Drawing geometries on these planes.
  3. Exporting as a CAD file.

Step 4: Sketch Plane Creation

In the sidebar, there’s a myriad of options to define sketch planes in the 3D realm. Some planes can be dictated using the probe, while others may leverage pre-existing sketch planes, like parallel planes.

Step 5: Drawing on Your Selected Plane

Upon selecting a plane from the sidebar, the probe will project onto it. This facilitates the drawing of geometries on this specific plane.

Step 6: Drawing Geometries

To draw, position the probe at two distinct surface points and hit “Add.” Once your waypoints are set, choose “Finish Geometry.” This action turns the waypoints into a geometry, with a line being formed from two waypoints. The total number of waypoints influences the resultant geometry type.

Step 7: Chaining Geometries

When multiple geometries are drawn consecutively, they become linked. To finalize a contour, select “Finish Contour.” Every subsequent geometry initiates a fresh contour automatically. You can see all contours of a sketch plane listed in the sidebar, and even revert to a prior contour if needed.

Step 8: The Export Phase

Once all geometries have been drawn on the sketch planes, it’s time for the final step: exporting. Opt for a sketch plane, which will govern the spatial orientation of your data. Then, hit the “Export” button.

Step 9: Finalizing the Export

Alter export settings like the file type and storage location, and validate your choices. Once exported, your file is ready to be integrated into your chosen CAD program.

Conclusion:

With these steps, you’re set to harness the CeConstructor’s capabilities to directly digitize object features, leading to streamlined CAD project integration.
