2d slices into 3d model

Thanks! I'm trying to repeat this exercise without success. Leading curve ok. but profiles (slices) aren't loaded. Moreover your file isn't finished. Is it my fault? I mean sketches. Also surface isn't smooth. I can provide mores slices and point cloud but I'm not sure if it helps. Points comes from algorithm not laser scan. I know Solidworks has Scan to 3D but it's absent in SDK. Mastercam for example draws surface easily.

Thanks! It's unfinished right? Tried to repeat but profiles (slices) aren't loaded, leading curve ok. Also in your file surface isn't smooth. How can we improve that? I can only provide more slices or point cloud. Scan to 3D is absent in SDK. Mastercam doing this easily and quickly.

Current slice per 5mm (Z axis). How dense do you need? 1mm? It's complicated because every 260 slices are converted to entities, require planes etc. Complicated without macro.

cool
simply use scale function

save in older version : impossible (ou must use another file format : step, iges...) but you loose "construction tree"
