Can you all pls give your opinions on the following software's used in
scanning and point cloud manipulation.

CopyCAD - Delcam
Rapid form

I would like to know how these software's have made it easier to get from
point cloud or ruff stl data to a finished model. Things like smoothing,
alignment of scans, and especially laying surfaces either automatic or
manually in design need situations. all input will be appreciated to make
our lives easier.
