Converting Point Cloud Data to Surfaces and Solids
Application ID: 96991
Not all analysis projects start with a CAD model. Sometimes the only data you have available is a set of points, also known as a point cloud. The examples files available here illustrate how point cloud data can be converted to geometry models that can be used for simulation in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
Learn more about using point cloud data in the accompanying blog post "Converting Point Cloud Data to Surfaces and Solids".
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
