Join us as we explore how to scan highly organic & freeform shapes, like human bodies, implants & prosthetics, masks, sculptures, and topology-optimized parts. These shapes pose a major challenge for traditional modeling, but tools like Design X and Freeform can make quick work of them with cutting-edge techniques like Auto-surfacing, Hybrid Modeling, and Digital Clay Sculpting.
